At the FLIR manufacturing facility in Richmond, BC, Canada, achieving total Brickstream sensor quality is our top priority. A comprehensive approach to ensuring 24/7 sensor reliability begins with our dedicated staff of engineers and equipment operators. Hardware engineers choose qualified components from only authorized distribution networks; IPC trained operators assemble the sensors at our ISO:9001:2008 certified manufacturing plant; and quality assurance employees validate build quality for each sensor unit through robust testing procedures.
Our IPC trained staff operate state-of-the-art equipment: SMT assembly lines, humidity controlled dry storage, intelligent storage systems, 3D SPI, 3D AOI, X-ray machines, CNC routing machines and industrial inspection equipment. We put each and every Brickstream sensor through a series of inspections and tests throughout the manufacturing process to ensure 100% functionality. Having these features and procedures at one location allows us total quality control.
Our ISO 9001:2008 Richmond BC, Canada manufacturing plant covers over 20,000 sq.ft and consists of dual SMT lines capable of producing 250,000+ units a year.
Components are automatically released based on real-time inventory tracking generated by connected placement machines. Components are also provided ESD and humidity protection.
Circuit boards used in the Brickstream sensors are all 3D inspected for proper assembly. Microchip placement, electrode quality, and solder paste application are inspected to ensure proper manufacturing.
Our anechoic chamber allows us to perform electromagnetic interference (EMI) testing on our products to ensure proper compliance standards are met.
Tests are run to inspect enumeration, power consumption, imaging, programming and other functionalities while the sensors are cycled between hot and cold temperatures. Sensors are also tested at 45° for 10-12 hours burn-in stage.
The manufacturing floor complies to ANSI ESD S20.20.2014 reducing potential electrostatic (ESD) damage to components. Our ISO Class 7 cleanroom (FS209E Class 10,000) allows us to minimize dust particles in your sensor.
