Puget Systems Adds Innovative New Thermal Image Diagnostic Testing to Stringent QA Testing Process for All New Desktop Systems

Puget Systems is First in Systems Integrator Market to Add Thermal Image Diagnostic Testing to All New Build-to-Order Systems; Taps Thermal Imagery To Optimize PC Cooling and Performance


SEATTLE, WA (October 6, 2008) – Puget Systems, a boutique integrator of custom PC systems (www.pugetsystems.com) for enthusiasts, gamers, consumers and SMB markets, today announced it has adopted an advanced Thermal Image Diagnostic Testing procedure to its already stringent quality assurance testing process for all new systems built in its facility.

Leveraging cutting-edge thermal imaging technology, Puget Systems Quality Assurance experts can take a thermal image of a system’s running components, immediately identify areas of heat irregularities and anomalies, and quickly determine and diagnose potential longer term system hardware or performance issues. Additionally with thermal imaging data, Puget Systems can design superior cooling solutions that will also contribute to improved system performance and long-term reliability. Puget Systems also plans to be very transparent with this process, providing customers with the actual thermal images of each custom system they order. This type of open testing is unprecedented in the industry and will result in even higher quality systems for customers, and significantly lower post-sales service costs and requirements.

“We take QA very seriously at Puget Systems, in fact, we’ve been awarded some of the highest ratings from reputable third-party resources such as ResellerRatings.com,” said Jon Bach, president of Puget Systems. “However, even with all the accolades, we’re still not comfortable resting on our laurels -- we wanted to find new ways to trouble shoot and diagnose issues long before our systems ship to customers. By adding this level of sophistication and innovation to our QA process, we’ve significantly raised the bar for quality, and that’s something I’m very proud of.”

Puget Systems has invested in significantly in its QA process, adding a new Flir Systems A320 thermal camera. The A320 is a powerful and accurate solution for machine vision and automation systems that require non-contact imaging and temperature measurements. It is a complete machine vision and remote monitoring system that immediately identifies thermal problems that would otherwise go undetected. Its built-in logic makes it ideal for the caliber of product and process monitoring required from Puget Systems’ quality/reliability assurance programs.

Any chance you'll hit up your Mineral Oil compy with this? It'd be interesting to see what are the 'hot-spots' in the mineral oil computer, because that would affect where you'd want to put your intake & output tubes, to maximize cooling distribution.

Unfortunately, just like the thermal camera can't read through glass, it also can't read through oil. It sees surface temperatures, so it isn't a very exciting picture -- the outside of the tank is amazingly uniform in temperature.
