Title:
SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DETECTING AND REPAIRING DEFECTS IN AN ELECTROCHROMIC DEVICE USING THERMAL IMAGING
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2012/154320
Kind Code:
A8
Abstract:
System (1) and method (100) for detecting and repairing a defect in an electrochromic device (30) may include acquiring a thermal image of the electrochromic device (30) when the device is in an operating state. In addition, the system and method may include processing thermal imaging data representative of the thermal image to detect a defect in the electrochromic device by comparing a thermal amplitude detected at one or more pixels of the thermal image with a predetermined value, and to determine a location of the electrochromic device corresponding to the detected defect.
