Farnell element14 adds thermal imaging camera to its test & measurement portfolio
Farnell element14 is now shipping the new FLIR ETS320 Thermal Imaging camera, designed for quick temperature checks on printed circuit boards and other small electronics in the laboratory and accurate quality assurance and factory acceptance testing. Heat can be an important factor in understanding how a system is functioning and the FLIR ETS320 provides non-contact thermal measurement through a combination of a high sensitively infrared camera with an integrated stand for hands free measurement.
The camera can quickly identify hot spots, thermal gradients, and potential points of failure, detecting temperature shifts as small as (<0.06c) and quantifying heat generation up to 250 °C. The camera has 78,000 points of non-contact measurement enabling users to identify where and when to add fans and heat syncs to ensure products operate within specified parameters for maximum lifetime. A temperature measurement accuracy of ±3°C makes the camera ideal for quality assurance and factory acceptance testing. Designed for hands-free use in the lab the camera with a micro-scope style stand is easy to set up and suited to testing small electronics. The camera is battery operating removing the inconvenience of wires and has simplified features offering complete measurement and analysis on the camera, alongside ease of use.
Key features include a 320 x 240 pixel IR detector non non-contact measurement, crisp 3” LCD display providing immediate thermal feedback, 45° field of view, thermal sensitivity (NEtD) of 0.06°C, temperature measurement accuracy of ±3°C and a wide temperature range of up to 250°C, and hands free-battery operated measurement.
