Thermal analysis system

11 May 2011 Test & Measurement

Advanced Thermal Solutions has released the iQ-200 thermal analysis system for precisely and simultaneously measuring the temperatures of solid materials and the surrounding air, as well as tracking air velocity and air pressure at multiple points to comprehensively profile heatsinks, components and PCBs. The instrument can simultaneously capture data from up to 12 J-type thermocouples, 16 air temperature/velocity sensors and four differential pressure sensors.

The thermocouples provide surface area temperature measurements on heatsinks, components, housing parts and other locations to track heat flow or detect hot spots. Temperature data is recorded from -40°C to 750°C. Air temperature and velocity are measured by up to 16 low profile ATS candlestick sensors which can be placed throughout a system. Air temperature is tracked from 20°C to 65°C and air velocity is measured from 0 to 6 m/s. The differential transducers capture pressure drop data along circuit cards, assemblies and orifice plates. Pressure measurements are taken from 0 to 1034 Pa.

The iQ-200 system comes preloaded with user-friendly iSTAGE application software which manages the incoming data from multiple sensing devices and provides graphic presentation on monitors and documents. The instrument connects via USB to any conventional PC for convenient data management, storage and sharing.

The iQ-200 can be factory modified to measure higher airflows, up to 50 m/s, and air temperatures to 85°C.
