Liquid Crystal Thermography System Reveals Component Temps.
Wed Jan 08, 2014 | 3:13P | PermaLink BY: Max Page

The new ATS ethermVIEW liquid crystal thermographic analysis system provides optical temperature measurements of active PCBs and components by the color response of thermochromic liquid crystals.

Developed by Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc., the ethermVIEW system includes a solid-state color camera for macroscopic inspection of boards and components coated with heat-sensitive liquid crystals. Starting price for the ethermVIEW thermographic analysis system is US $15,000.

Liquid crystals used with ethermVIEW reflect incident light at visible wavelengths based on the surfaces temperatures where they’re applied. The camera captures the reactive TLC colors to reveal hot spots and defects for more effective thermal management.

In contrast to infrared thermography systems, the ethermVIEW TLC method is not affected by ambient temperatures. It provides more precise temperature measurements – within +/- 0.1°C accuracy. The ethermVIEW system can also be purchased for less than one third the cost of a typical IR thermography system.

The camera features a flicker-free white light source for clear viewing of dark surfaces and partially concealed features. It links to a PC by Firewire. The system includes thermSOFT software used in other ATS thermal analysis devices, for image processing and management.

ATS provides a choice of TLC-100 liquid crystals formulated to respond visually to specific temperatures. TLC-100 crystals are specifically designed for mapping heat fields on PCBs and components. The crystals change color at a specified temperature starting at red, changing to green then blue. The ethermVIEW system can also be calibrated to use any standard thermochromic liquid crystals. ATS provides four calibrations at no cost during the first year of ownership of an ethermVIEW system.

Complete speces are available here, or by calling ATS 1-781-769-2800.
