DescriptionBlends thermal and visual images on a single display Uses ceramic pyroelectric sensor arrayLow resolution at low cost to make thermal imaging a common tool
Yole Développement is pleased to publish the reverse costing report of the DCT416 Infrared Imaging Thermometer from Dewalt. The analysis is performed by System Plus Consulting.
Being part of Dewalt 12V cordless tool platform, this rugged product is meant to bring thermal imaging tools to everyone in the field. Its low-cost when compared with microbolometer-based cameras is coming with the low thermal resolution of its 15x15 pixel array. However the possibility to blend the thermal array with a visual image enhances its usage.
The thermal sensor used in this camera is a ceramic pyroelectric array. A camera module, an infrared optical lens, a 2.2” display are packed in a compact housing. The system with its accessories is supplied in a rigid transport case.
Based on a complete teardown analysis, the report provides an estimation of the production cost as well as the selling price of the product.
The Reverse Costing of the IRISYS pyroelectric array is available in a separate report.

SYSTEM PLUS CONSULTING
Across the Enterprise, from marketing to purchasing and R&D, product manufacturing cost is a major factor which has to be measured and then optimized. Since 1993, System Plus Consulting’s mission has been to develop and sell the right tools and services to meet these costing requirements.
System Plus Consulting utilizes an engineering approach to cost. Cost models and technology expertise are combined to provide customers with an accurate and objective estimation of manufacturing costs and selling prices.
Headquartered in Nantes, France, System Plus Consulting is specialized in technology and cost analysis of electronic components and systems. During our 20 years in business, we have built and refined detailed cost models as the primary tools for hundreds of analyses. The highly qualified System Plus cost engineers combine broad and deep skills in semiconductor and electronics technologies with years of experience in cost modeling.
− Custom reverse costing analyses: technology analysis followed by cost evaluation
− Standard reverse costing reports: regular publications on innovative products (available from our catalogue)
− Costing tools: software tools combining models and data to perform cost analysis
System Plus Consulting analyzes any type of electronic devices and systems, with a special focus on semiconductor technologies. Major fields of technology and cost expertise are:
