When Fluke IR-fusion® was first launched, I wondered whether or not it would be perceived as just another marketing gimmick, and if not, how well it would be used. Time has proven that few find it gimmicky and most use it very well.
In the field I nearly always use the Full Infrared setting (left) for […]
One of my Thermal Resolutions for 2011 was as follows:
“I’ve learned nearly all I know about thermography from others and have, honestly, barely scratched the surface, so I resolve to learn more from my professional colleagues.”
I was fortunate to visit the home of Sir William Herschel in the Fall of 2010. Here I am […]
One year ago I made some predictions about where I thought the market might be headed (click here to read full post). It is useful, I think, to see how today’s reality compares with yesterday’s dreams.
• A $1,000 imager
We are close, but thankfully not yet there. Sales of lower-cost systems continue to grow. This has […]
Have you been hearing about the benefits of thermal imaging, but aren’t quite sure exactly what it is or how it can help you? In this short video, we take a step back and explain what thermal imaging actually is. We cover the basic principles of how the camera works and a few of the […]
Don’t get stuck in 2D. Watch this informative video on how 3D reporting in Fluke SmartView software can give you a view from EVERY angle. When viewing traditional 2D images sometimes situations can be misdiagnosed. See what a difference 3D reporting makes.
To see a video demonstration of Fluke SmartView, click HERE. And remember, Fluke SmartView […]
Consulting-Specifying Engineer provides the engineering community with premium research and information, and every year the have consumers vote on the test tool products of the year. This year it was the Fluke TiS thermal imaging scanner that reigned supreme, not only winning its category, but also claiming top prize among all products as 2011 MVP. TiS is specially engineered for […]
This week we had the privilege to talk to with Scott Warga, ACSI American Construction Specialists & Investigations LLC who shared his thoughts on the importance of education, thermography tips, and how to catch animals in the act of doing something mischievous (we’ll explain this shortly).
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I do […]
Hopefully many of you tried my suggestion last week of filling a mug with hot coffee or tea and observing it with your imager as it went through a thermal cycle. If not, please do so as there are many valuable lessons to be learned. Also useful is distilling the temperature changes for the mug […]
In a recent article by PlantServices.com, which highlights some of the safety issues that are common in electrical power distribution systems, industry leaders from some of the top engineering companies such as Miller Engineering, Schneider Electric, EMP Engineering Services, and Fluke, offered great insight on how to stay safe and prevent problems when working with […]
We know the direction of heat transfer is from hotter to cooler, but sometimes the temperatures we measure can be misleading. Particularly, when the process of transfer is still in transition, the temperatures will not have peaked yet. Also when a surface is being strongly influenced by outside forces—such as evaporation, sun, wind […]
