Flir expands thermal camera range


The pocket-sized Scout TK is aimed at outdoor types like campers and hikers, giving them the ability to take in their surroundings even when it's pitch black outside. Meanwhile, the entry-level TG130 is heading for home and small business use, to aid in DIY building projects or assist with office energy efficiency measures.

The Lepton microcamera core – the same technology that brought thermal imaging to smartphone users with last year's Flir One – is reported similar in size, weight and power consumption to a CMOS smartphone camera module. The design also allows for high volume manufacture, lowering production costs and enabling thermal imaging technology to be delivered into the hands of consumers.
