High resolution Gobi-640 determines healing prospects of burn wounds Medical infrared imaging - High resolution thermal camera Gobi-640 determines the healing prospects of burn wounds.
Thermal imaging for monitoring rolling element bearings To be reliably operated off-shore wind turbines need an assured downtime and maintenance pattern to keep costs low. A monitoring project carried out by the authors uses an infrared (LWIR) thermal camera placed in the drive trains of such turbines and focusing on their spherical roller bearings.
Laser beam profiling and infrared cameras In this white paper, we will address the general need for laser beam profile analysis. Further, we will briefly describe laser beam analysis instruments and give an overview of laser applications, in particular for infrared wavelengths.
