Wow, I am impressed! I am surprised by how much heat is being transferred to the X carriage or is that from the Z stepper motor? The Y motors do not seem to putting off much heat.

Now I want an infrared camera.

Wow, that’s pretty cool (or hot, depending on how you look at it). As for the heat transfer, you have to remember the FLIR might only be showing a range of 10 degrees from the purple to the white.

Good point, is there a color code?

So there is the ability to place a marker on the photo to read the temps in the flir app

So about 34 degrees difference between white and purple.

Nice, that’s actually not to bad for such a small sensor.

It must have two cameras (thermal and optical) with the images overlayed to make such a detailed image.

Got this from the FLIR-One website:

"Ordinarily, the camera uses an Automatic Gain Control (AGC) process to automatically adjust the image based on the range of temperatures that are in the scene. The camera detects the range or span of temperatures, and maps the temperatures to colors in the color palette dynamically. As a result, the color of an object at a certain temperature can vary, depending on the other temperatures in the scene. "

and

“scene range temperature: 32°F to 212°F (0°C to 100°C)”

not a bad little device!

You are correct sir
