The next-gen FLIR One is a small and lightweight thermal imaging attachment that is compatible with either iOS or Android devices. It weighs less than a third of the original, extends the limits of human vision to the infrared light spectrum and unlocks practical applications ranging from home improvement, outdoor adventure and personal safety. Operating through the FLIR One app, it displays a live thermal image on screen, giving users the ability to see in various conditions including complete darkness, light fog and smoke. FLIR One converts heat into color images so users can observe temperature differences to fractions of a degree. Use cases include identifying heat loss or energy inefficiency, observing wildlife and detecting intruders. Inside is FLIR’s upgraded Lepton thermal camera core, which features 4x the resolution of the original. When combined with multi-spectral dynamic imaging (MSX), it increases a user’s ability to interpret a thermal image in real-world environments. MSX is a proprietary technique that uses two cameras (visible camera next to thermal sensor) to enhance image This technology is additive where no thermal information is lost, enhancing the perceived 640 by 480 resolution of the thermal image. The next-gen FLIR One has automatic tuning and its own dedicated battery source.
