Sometimes you just need both. FLIR's DUO camera brings a new capability to the lightweight imaging world. While the Infrared sensor is a much lower resolution than the FLIR Vue, the ability to select between the 1080P visible spectrum sensor and infrared remotely can be critical for certain flight missions.
FLIR Systems, Inc. announced the launch of five new thermal imaging cameras at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), including two new third generation FLIR ONE thermal camera attachments for smartphones, two new dual sensor thermal cameras for drones, and a ruggedized compact thermal camera for home and building inspectors.
All five products feature FLIR Lepton®, FLIR’s revolutionary thermal micro-camera core, and FLIR’s patented multispectral dynamic imaging (MSX®) technology, which dramatically improves image quality and readability by dynamically embossing high-fidelity, visible-light details onto the thermal imagery.
“These innovative new thermal imaging devices further extend the utility and value of low-cost thermal imaging into consumer and small business applications,” said FLIR President and CEO, Andy Teich. “Thermal imaging is more accessible than ever today thanks to our continued effort to make the technology smaller, more powerful and more affordable. We’re excited to provide a thermal imaging ‘sixth sense’ with the third generation FLIR ONE, FLIR Duo for drones, and FLIR C3 camera for professional users.”
FLIR Duo Cameras for Drones
The FLIR Duo is the drone industry’s first multi-sensor camera that features FLIR’s Lepton thermal micro-camera core, a high-definition (HD) 1080p visible camera, and FLIR’s patented MSX technology. The FLIR Duo offers versatile onboard recording to a micro SD card and real-time remote control of camera functions and can be mounted to any airframe capable of holding the most popular action cameras. Operators can switch between the FLIR Duo’s thermal and visible cameras in-flight or view both in a picture-in-picture mode. Priced at $999.99, the FLIR Duo is accessible to drone hobbyists and professionals alike.
The FLIR Duo R, priced at $1,299.99, adds accurate temperature measurement capabilities for commercial applications including agricultural, construction, civil engineering, building inspection, and public safety use cases.
