Technical article: Mike Might Know — inclinometer sine output errors download

Sherborne SensorsMon, 15 Dec 2014

Gravity-referenced inertial inclinometers are in effect low-frequency response accelerometers and derive their angular information from the acceleration due to gravity, the output being proportional to the normal component of the gravity vector. It is perhaps surprising that some users do not appreciate that the inclinometer output is proportional to the sine of the angle and not the absolute angle in degrees.

Infrared windows

White paper: the importance of transmissivity and infrared windows download

IRISSMon, 1 Dec 2014

Infrared (IR) windows save lives. Most thermographers today are thankful to perform their scans without the danger and time of removing heavy panels. But just as the thermal imager is a tool, so is the IR window. And as with any tool, it must be used correctly to get the desired results. According to this white paper from IRISS, standardisation is the key to getting repeatable results and accurate measurements. Many applications that benefit from infrared analysis do not require exact ...
