FLIR Systems Introduce Hyperspectral Imaging

To collect full 3D hyperspectral data cube simultaneously

FLIR Systems Introduce Hyperspectral ImagingMeer, Belgium  —  FLIR Systems has teamed up with imaging specialists Bodkin Design & Engineering LLC (BD&E) to provide a hyperspectral imaging solution that enables you to collect any waveband of spectral and spatial information in one high-speed video frame.

Hyperspectral imaging systems collect both spectral and spatial information in one instantaneous video frame. This enhances the data stream while eliminating motion artifacts and maximizing signal-to-noise response.

Combined with FLIR’s advanced infrared camera technologies, the systems can be optimized for the visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR, or LWIR wavebands.

Additionally, these systems can be designed to interface with virtually any telescope or microscope.

The new hyperspectral imaging cameras are massively parallel systems able to collect all three dimensions of the full three-dimensional hyperspectral data cube simultaneously.

Incident photons from an imaged scene are detected in parallel by a two-stage optical processor. This device manipulates the data set prior to any electronic detection or software processing, operating on the data set at the speed of light.

Hyperspectral imaging has been recognized as an important tool for remote sensing. It can identify materials by the spectral content of a pixel even though the objects of interest are too small to be spatially resolved, are partially obscured by vegetation or can only be identified by their spectral signature.

High-spectral-resolution hyperspectral imaging is a key element in the developing fields of autonomous material identification, geological mapping, biological research, medical imaging, cancer detection and clinical instrumentation.

Measuring Temperatures at the Micron Level

Webinar on Infrared Microscopy | September 13 at 1 p.m. US EST

Infrared Microscopy – Measuring Temperatures at the Micron Level

Online — In the ever-shrinking world of electronic components, finding and fixing hot spots during electronic systems design and testing is becoming increasingly difficult.

In this brief 20-30 minute webinar on September 13, 2018, FLIR staff will discuss how the use of close-up and microscope lenses allow infrared cameras to make accurate temperature measurements on components less than 25 micron in size and even image targets as small as 3.5 microns.

They will also provide side-by-side comparisons of real-world images and data from a variety of different camera and lens combinations.

Powerful Package for Lock?in Infrared Thermography

Includes thermographic camera, trigger unit & software

Powerful Package for Lock?in ThermographyDresden, Germany  —  Today many manufacturers of electronic components and assemblies use thermographic cameras during product development. InfraTec is opening up a completely new range of opportunities to such users.

A package for Lock?in Thermography gets you off to a successful start in such challenging measurement tasks at an exceptional attractive price. This includes the VarioCAM® HDx thermographic camera – as a stationary or handheld model – – together with the IRBIS® 3 active thermography software, the appropriate trigger unit and corresponding connection cables.

Lock?in Thermography is used nowadays as a variant of active thermography in connection with scientific issues as well as in numerous research and development departments. The focused induction or generation of a heat flux is a way of examining test objects non?destructively for concealed material defects, cavities, cracks, joint flaws or delamination.

In electronics, developers use the method for detecting faults and anomalies in the development of electronics, since a focused input of heat can usually be attained easily by means of electrical excitation. Even in the case of the slightest power losses, errors can be reliably detected and localised.

The centrepiece of the package impresses with a large detector and precise lenses

This effectiveness is directly linked to the qualities of the VarioCAM® HDx. Its large microbolometer detector offers (640 × 480) IR pixels.

The available range of light?intensive precision interchangeable lenses includes the standard lens, a macro lens as well as a high performance microscopic lens, which enables to depict structures with a pixel size up to 17 ?m.

In view of the extensive range of lenses, users can operate individually at varying working distances and adapt tests conveniently to different measurement objects and tasks. The GigE interface ensures that a transmission of very detailed images is possible in real time.

Optional interfaces to LabVIEW and MATLAB as well as a software development kit facilitate the integration of the thermographic camera into existing system environments.

Special software for identifying the slightest differences in temperature

A second key component of the Lock?in Thermography package is the thermographic software IRBIS® 3 active. This modern and all?purpose tool is specifically tailored to active thermography.

It supports analyses, in which the temperature differences between defective and intact structures are extremely small. Complex evaluation algorithms form the basis for gaining conclusive results.

The large data volumes that frequently occur here can be processed automatically with the software.

In all, the Lock?in Thermography package constitutes a powerful solution for basic analyses using Lock?in Thermography.

The emphasis here is the integrated use of the thermographic camera. The basic equipment enables users to already achieve convincing results from the start.

Upon request, they can configure the entire thermographic system even more flexibly with regard to their specific needs. The modular design ensures long?term flexibility and the certainty of being able to respond to new challenges at any time.
