FLIR has introduced Lepton, an advanced longwave infrared (LWIR) imager that is 10 times less expensive than conventional IR cameras. It is a complete IR camera solution and provides a resolution of 80 × 60 active pixels.
The FLIR Lepton® is ultra- compact and can be easily fitted inside a cell phone. It brings thermal imaging to a new generation of electronic instruments for work, play and mission-critical applications.
The LWIR imager is available in three models such as 25° FOV without shutter, 50° FOV without shutter and 50° FOV with shutter for manual calibration.
The main features of the FLIR Lepton are as follows:
- Low cost
- Improved IR sensor
- Ultra-compact thermal Imager
- Easy Integration
- Thermal imaging for stationary and mobile electronics
- Greater heat detection than traditional thermopile arrays
- Simplified R & D of emerging thermal-enabled devices
