The products are backed by the world’s largest uncooled micro-thermal camera manufacturing capacity.
Teledyne FLIR announced the first micro-thermal camera module with an ultrawide 160-degree field of view (FOV), the Lepton UW. It is compact enough to fit on the tip of a finger.
It features 120 x 120 thermal resolution and a scene dynamic range of up to 400 degrees Celsius. It also features unmatched thermal sensitivity of less than 50mK and integrated digital thermal image signal processing capabilities .
The module is well suited for applications requiring a wide field of view, including fire detection, process monitoring and people counting.
Specifically, for people counting, the Lepton UW offers a unique dataset that prevents overcounting through glass, while ensuring personal privacy. Integrated with building automation software, it can help facility managers to better optimize and automate energy usage, occupant comfort, and workspace management.
“Offering the ultra-wide field of view in such a compact package will enable smart building system integrators to utilize thermal data within more affordable systems and simplify deployment,” said Mike Walters, vice president, product management, Teledyne FLIR.
Teledyne provides developers with a technical service team and online resources. The online resources include source codes as well as licenses for eased development process.
Teledyne FLIR, formerly FLIR Systems Inc, is a subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies. The company specializes in the design and production of thermal imaging cameras and sensors.
