Airborne RADIOMETRIC thermal camera
The Workswell WIRIS Pro is airborne radiometric thermal camera for drone that has been specially designed for use with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or drones. The WIRIS Pro is at the forefront of a new generation of thermal cameras built for the most demanding applications, including industrial inspections, archaeology, and precision agriculture.
State-of-the-art BISPECTRAL camera.
The Workswell WIRIS Pro airborne radiometric thermal camera is a specially designed thermodiagnostic device. Its thermal camera is equipped with an LWIR microbolometric sensor with 640×512 px resolution (in the 7.5 – 13.5 μm range), and its ‘Super Resolution Mode’ functionality can deliver a final thermogram in 1266×1010 px resolution. The RGB camera comes with Full HD (1920 x 1080 px) resolution and provides an absolutely unrivalled optical ultrazoom 10x in real-time (6.9° to 58.2° field of vision). The highest possible temperature that the thermal camera can measure is 1,500 °C (2 732 °F).
Three Recording Options
Since the WIRIS Proairborne radiometric thermal camera records a large amount of radiometric data over the course of a single inspection, we decided that it should be the only drone-mounted camera to have its own internal SSD. The WIRIS Pro comes in two storage capacities – 128 and 256 GB – and its data can be offloaded to an external USB drive or micro SD card as well.
Like all of Workswell’s WIRIS cameras, the WIRIS Pro airborne radiometric thermal camera operates on the specially designed WIRIS OS platform. Workswell built the WIRIS OS to ensure the security of its WIRIS systems while enhancing their diagnostic capabilities. The WIRIS OS is simply the only software that enables the maximum utilization of the WIRIS Pro’s hardware. Together, Workswell’s hardware and software offer advanced measurement functions that cannot be replicated by any other product on the market.
Industrial inspections are often carried out in demanding environments. As a result, there is a high risk that inspection cameras will be damaged during the course of their normal use. That’s why the WIRIS Pro airborne radiometric thermal camera is ensconced in a rugged case of lightweight aluminum. What’s more, the most sensitive component of the entire system, the thermal camera lens, is protected by a replaceable protective cap made of germanium.
Along with the Workswell WIRIS Pro, we provide an SDK (Standard Development Kit) that enables end-user application development. These libraries give access to low-level functionalities and help the application developer to maximize the potential of the camera’s hardware.
There are two SDK variants – the WIRIS Stream SDK, and the WIRIS Data SDK.
HW Communication, control ports and interfaces
- CAN bus (DJI M600 and A3 controller compatible)
- Ethernet (RJ 45 with RTPS streaming and control signals transmission option)
- MavLink – Provides a wide range of standard and custom commands for controlling the thermal camera during the flight.
- GPS connection potential
- External trigger
- CANbus & UART serial communication
