Fluke RSE300 60 Hz
60 Hz, 320 x 240, 1.85 mRad Mounted Infrared Camera for Research, Science and Engineering (RSE)
The Fluke RSE300 60 Hz, 320 x 240, 1.85 mRad Mounted Infrared Camera for Research, Science and Engineering (RSE) is a fully-radiometric, stationary infrared camera. Building on 65 years of manufacturing the world's top measurement tools, these cameras offer powerful analytical capabilities through SmartView desktop software and plug-ins to MATLAB and LabVIEW. Users can now stream and analyze infrared data from their workstations with more confidence and faster results with both ruggedness and ease-of-use.
Designed for research, science and engineering, the RSE300 60 Hz offers the image quality and data analysis capabilities to enhance quality assurance, testing and product development functions.
IR-Fusion Technology: Precisely Blended Images Offer More Detail
Infrared images alone can be difficult to understand, which is why Fluke pioneered IR-Fusion technology. Automatically capture a visible image with every infrared image; this allows you to always know exactly what you are looking at. And image quality is everything when it comes to quickly analyzing infrared images - you need the right level of detail to pinpoint specific areas of concern. IR-Fusion blends visible light and infrared images to capture a clear 5MP real-world picture of your target. Blend at different preset levels and add picture-in-picture (PIP) to capture an incredibly revealing hybrid image.

Examples of Adding Value with Infrared Inspection:
- Analyzing printed circuit boards:
- Find localized over-temperature issues.
Design engineers have to combine heat intensive solid-state high power transformers, high speed microprocessors, and Analog to Digital (A/D) or Digital to Analog (D/A) signal convertors into a very small package.
- Establishing cycle times.
Set the infrared camera to record thermal measurements as a solder point cools, so that you can set cycle times for automated systems. You can annotate key points with voice and text for quick review.
- Analyzing assembly impact.
Perform quality review at various stages of the development and manufacturing processes to ensure that any issues are captured early to avoid costly component failures down the road.
- Validating thermal modeling.
Using thermal modeling software provides a good estimate of what will occur when you populate a board, but it's still only a simulation. You can easily validate those results by comparing your thermal CAD model to what you're actually getting with the camera as you populate the board and power up components. Then you can scan the finished powered-up prototype and compare the results to your model to see how close it is.
- Assessing collateral damage.
Sometimes heat from the circuit board can affect the performance of other components in the system, such as making an LCD run too hot or interfering with mechanical operation. To avoid that you can assess how much heat dissipates from the entire package and how that heat may affect other parts of the system. Start by capturing an image of the powered up unit with the cover on. That image shows the temperatures of all the components under power. Then remove the cover and do a radiometric video recording of the temperature decay curve. You can then export a group of maximum temperature points into spreadsheet software and backwards extrapolate the resulting curve to time zero, to see what the temperature of the component was before you took the cover off.
- Find localized over-temperature issues.
- Materials engineering:
- Phase change analysis.
Changing the phase of a product - from solid to liquid, often takes a great deal of heat, while changing from liquid to solid results in releasing an excessive amount of latent heat. If that extra heat has not been accounted for in the phase change process, it can result in warped parts. That is caused by the material staying liquid for longer than expected while heat is still evolving from the part, causing it to warp. Tracking the phase change process with a infrared camera will give you a precise picture of how long that phase change will take and you can adjust the heat application accordingly.
- Residual thermal stress can either strengthen a product or can result in warping or breakage due to a problem with the materials or the heating and cooling process. Using a camera to analyze the actual production process compared to the thermal model can help identify variances that may impact product quality.
- Non-destructive composite component testing.
Scanning composite components with a high resolution infrared camera can reveal hidden defects such as cracks, voids, delamination, and disbonding.
- Radiant analysis.
The extremely high thermal sensitivity and unprecedented spatial resolution of Fluke infrared cameras allow for more thorough and accurate radiant analysis not previously possible with most commercially- available products.
