IR on PC boards Scuba Steve 12/10/2004
I recently saw an article or posting by a gentleman on troubleshooting a bad batch of PC boards. It involved some components that were rated differently and were causing failures. The thermograpgher "digitally subtracted" the thermal signatures of the two images to develop an IR image with a scale of +/- values. How did he do this? Where is this article? They stopped using the history button on our tool bars at work

The article you are referring to is in the November issue of the InfraMation newsletter (you can signup to receive it at no charge on the home page of this web site).

Here is a link to the issue,

FLIR Systems ThermaCAM Researcher software allows you to perform image subtraction on images, .

Thanks Gary!! I'm still working on figuring out why I'm not getting your Newsletter emails. How can I get in contact with Frank? You may forward my email address to him. I would like to know how he did the 'subtraction'.

Guess I should have read the rest of your posting. Disregard my last. Thanks again!

Your link yields the message below. Is this something additional that has to be purchased with the ThermaCAM Reporter 2000 that we have?
