Hand Held Thermal Sensor AKA the “Iron Man device”
Looking for a cold spot?….How about a hot spot?……………Or EMF?
Goal of the Hand Held Thermal Sensor
Ever tried to hold a flashlight in the dark and use an EMF meter at the same time? Well the Hand Held Thermal Sensor solves that issue and provides a wearable easy to read interface.
For the Old Lincoln County Hospital we devised a hand held thermal sensor flash light / energy meter. The device is compact, light and hands free. The flashlight color adjusts as the temperature around it changes. The small flashlight tucks in your palm while the display shows the readout on the back your hand.
How the Hand Held Thermal Sensor functions:
On the back the device can display temperature or energy readings as well as histograms of either source.
The unit weights a couple ounces. It is powered by an internal rechargeable Li-Po battery that is can be recharged via a small USB port in the side of the device. Typically the battery can run the flashlight and display for up to 4 hours.
The display can show temperature or a chart, so you can sweep a room and view the changes. Additional modes read EMF and display the wave forms on the screen.
How the Ghost Adventures Hand Held Thermal Sensor was made:
This build took nearly 90 hours to complete from concept, print, assembly to programming and test. The finished device printing time was roughly 7 hours for two units.
The entire case for this device was 3D printed all the wire and controls are mounted inside the band which was a hallow printed tube. Multiple small laser cut parts finish off the unit and encase the internals. Below you can see the shell before the laser cut parts finish it off and the lights/sensors were put in place.
What kind of 3D printers do we use? We have a fleet of 12 printers based on the original Rep-Rap Pursa design.
