Advanced Flash Technology

The flashlamps used in most thermography systems are designed for commercial photography, and can result in excessive saturation of the IR detector and nonuniform heating of the target. TWI flash technology was developed specifically for thermography. Our precision Flash Controller (PFC) provides a flash pulse that can be truncated to a duration of less than 1 msec without loss of spectral components. Our proprietary flashlamp design provides the highest degree of uniformity to the target in the shortest possible pulse.

The combination of the patented TWI PFC and flashlamp technology enables precise measurement of transient or high-speed events that are unmatched using conventional approaches.
