Whether you are carrying out scientific research or evaluating a product, heat can be an important indicator of how a system is functioning.
FLIR ETS320 is a thermal camera solution designed for instant temperature checks on electronic devices and printed circuit boards. Made specifically for benchtop laboratory testing, the ETS320 comes with a microscope-style stand that is easy to set up and simplified features that allow users to give more attention to their work without having to worry much about camera controls.
The wireless thermal imager is a nearly affordable solution for engineers and laboratory test technicians looking at how to reduce electronic test times and improve product design. The system has the capacity to measure temperatures across over 76,000 points at a time, locating hotspots and potential points of failure within the component. It can also identify areas with faults and thermal gradients since it is highly sensitive to temperature change of 0.06°C and less.
The design of the ETS320 is such that it provides you with immediate feedback on the component you are testing. It shows crisp thermal imagery on a vibrant 3-inch LCD display and an instant guide to the source of PCB failures.
The camera itself is mounted on a silver pole and locked in place with a thumbscrew, but can still be moved up and down with the help of a fine-adjustment knob.
Some highlight features and specification of the device include:
- Display – Vibrant 3 inch LCD
- IR resolution – 320 x 240 (76,800 pixels)

The FLIR ETS320 comes powered with an internal battery that holds enough charge for several hours of testing, plenty of storage space to save images, and a control panel close to the LCD panel.
The ETS320 works with Windows and Mac operating systems. It comes with FLIR tools and software packages that allow users to generate reports based on the thermal data collected.
