Teledyne FLIR has announced its new Lepton UW, which it says is the “world’s first” micro-thermal camera module with an ultrawide 160-degree field of view (FOV) that is small enough to fit on the tip of a finger. 

According to the company, the new ultrawide module provides high level size, weight and performance for applications requiring a wide field of view, including fire detection, process monitoring and people counting.  

Lepton UW features a usable 120 x 120 thermal resolution and a scene dynamic range of up to 400 degrees Celsius. 

It also features thermal sensitivity of <50 mK and integrated digital thermal image signal processing capabilities.

Personal privacy

The company says customers will continue to receive Lepton products quickly and efficiently, backed by the world’s largest uncooled micro-thermal camera manufacturing capacity, all located in the US.

“Offering the ultrawide field of view in such a compact package will enable smart building system integrators to utilize thermal data within more affordable systems and simplify deployment,” said Mike Walters, Vice President, Product Management, Teledyne FLIR. 

“Developers can also leverage the Teledyne FLIR Technical Service Team for assistance along with online resources – from source codes to licenses, to speed the development process.”

Teledyne FLIR says that Lepton UW provides a unique dataset that is not susceptible to overcounting through glass while also maintaining personal privacy. 

When combined with building automation software, the Lepton UW can help facility managers better optimize and automate energy usage, occupant comfort and workspace management.
