Thermal imaging cameras for smartphones and tablets
Flir Systems has announced that the new third-generation Flir One and Flir One Pro thermal imaging cameras are available for pre-order worldwide with product deliveries starting in late June. Powered by Flir’s Lepton thermal micro camera core, the latest Flir One is Flir’s most affordable smartphone thermal camera while the first edition Flir One Pro is the most advanced Flir One to date. 
 
Like its predecessors, both new Flir Ones come equipped with a thermal and a high-definition visible camera. Using Flir’s patented multispectral dynamic imaging (MSX) technology, both Flir One models emboss high-fidelity, visible-light details onto the thermal imagery to dramatically improve image quality. The Flir One and Flir One Pro offer a breadth of new and improved features including:
 
OneFit adjustable connector enables the connection to be adjusted up to four millimetres to accommodate a variety of smartphone cases without the need to remove the case. This patent pending feature is available for both iOS and Android devices.
 
Improved Flir One app that now features in-app tips and tricks for problem solving and uses cases, a community for sharing images and videos.
 
Smartwatch compatibility with the Apple Watch and select Android smartwatches, providing the ability to stream live thermal imagery to see around corners and take images or video from your smartwatch.
 
The all-new Flir One Pro designed for professionals and consumers alike, is the most advanced Flir One ever created. With a distinctive ruggedised design that is drop tested to 1.8m, the Flir One Pro is made to withstand work and outdoor environments. Combining Flir’s MSX with Flir’s video signal processing technology, VividIR, the Flir One Pro delivers the highest thermal image quality and clarity of all FLIR ONE generations. It also offers exclusive, advanced Flir One App features, including multiple spot temperature meters and selectable onscreen temperature tracking regions.

FLIR Systems specialises in technologies that enhance perception and awareness.  The company brings innovative sensing solutions into daily life through its thermal imaging and visible light imaging technology and systems for measurement, diagnosis, location and advanced threat detection.  Its products improve the way people interact with the world around them, enhance productivity, increase energy efficiency and make the workplace safer.

FLIR Systems has six operating segments – surveillance, instruments, OEM and emerging markets, maritime, security and finally, detection. Of these six, ‘instruments’ is of greatest interest to trade and industry and the second largest segment in the company’s portfolio. This division provides devices that image, measure and assess thermal energy, gases and other environmental elements for industrial, commercial and scientific applications.

These products are manufactured across five production sites, three in the USA and two in Europe; Sweden and Estonia.

A model to suit every application and budget
The options that FLIR Systems provides for measuring temperature and studying thermal performance have never been greater.  Not only does the company offer a huge range of models to suit all thermal application needs but the technology is also affordable and very easy to use.  Thermal cameras now come in various shapes, sizes and degrees of sophistication and FLIR continues to invest heavily in the development of new and complementary technologies to differentiate itself from competitors.

An important milestone in the development of thermal imaging has been the introduction of the FLIR Lepton® core, a micro longwave detector, the size of a mobile SIM.  This has allowed thermal imaging to be repackaged to meet the needs of an even wider audience and, in combination with another new technology called Infrared Guided Measurement – IGM™ – has led to the development of a range of test and measurement meters with imaging capability.

Another important growth area for FLIR thermal imaging is in continuous monitoring to assure quality and safety.  Through its introduction of discrete fixed mounted thermal cameras which are fully compliant industry standard plug-and-play protocols, FLIR Systems has provided industry with infrared machine vision which is instantly ready for quick and easy network installation.

Protecting assets and people from fire is an area for which thermal imaging is least known but, thanks to FLIR Systems’ development, it is now one of the most cost-effective methods available.  Its application flexibility and rapid return on investment present an attractive proposition for any site or safety manager.
