24-07-2015 | RS Components | Design & Manufacture

RS Components is to stock the next generation FLIR ONETM thermal imager. With versions for both Apple iOS and Google Android device platforms, the versatile and pocket-sized FLIR ONE transforms a mobile device into a powerful thermal imager that sees heat and measures temperature accurately.

The new FLIR ONE utilizes either a micro-USB connector for Android devices or a Lightening connector for iOS devices to offer a compact accessory that easily connects to a smartphone or tablet. The FLIR ONE is powered by an internal battery and utilizes FLIR's latest generation Lepton thermal camera core, which features four times the resolution of the previous version. Images are further enhanced with FLIR's patented multi-spectral dynamic imaging (MSX) technology, which embosses the edge details from FLIR ONE's visible camera onto the thermal image producing high fidelity images.

FLIR ONE brings the advantages of thermography to a wide range of users such as building or machinery maintenance engineers, facilities managers, development engineers, security officers, students or consumers. FLIR also announced that it will release an updated iOS software development kit (SDK) and a new Android SDK to enable developers to build and launch creative apps for both smartphone environments. The FLIR ONE app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Various other thermal imaging apps are available, providing features such as time lapse, panoramic view or creative image editing.

As a low-cost introduction to the power of thermography, FLIR ONE joins the RS Components portfolio of professional thermal imaging solutions from FLIR Systems, including the popular FLIR products, E4 and other E series cameras, and accessories including tripod adapters, cases, visors and a vehicle adapter kit.
