- Teledyne FLIR Vue TZ20-R is a new radiometric thermal camera;
- It has two 640 x 512 resolution FLIR Boson thermal camera modules;
- Two field of views: Narrow (18°) and wide (95°);
- Engineered for the DJI M300 RTK and Matrice 200 Series V2 drones;
- Suitable for a range of applications, including public safety, search and rescue and inspection.
Teledyne FLIR has unveiled the Vue TZ20-R camera - a high-resolution radiometric thermal camera offering pixel-by-pixel temperature measurement with up to 20 times digital zoom.
One of these modules provides a narrow-field-of-view (18°) and the other a wide-field-of-view (95°).
These capabilities enable the Vue TZ20-R to provide enhanced situational awareness, accuracy, and context by offering more pixels on target with the corresponding temperature data.
The Vue TZ20-R replaces the original TZ20, featuring most of the same specs but with the vital upgrade of being radiometric.
Search and Inspect More Area in Less Time
IP44 rated to provide operability in poor weather conditions and weighing just 640 grams (1.4 lbs.), the dual thermal camera system affords digital thermal zoom at five times, 10 times, and 20 times.
These screens shots show how useful the zoom is: In this case, for a rooftop inspection.
The thermal imaging capabilities can be utilised for a variety of public safety and industrial missions.
The dual Boson camera modules also provide four times more radiometric pixels on target at every zoom level versus all competitors, empowering pilots to scan and survey large areas quickly, all while preserving flight time and maintaining a safe stand-off distance.
For instance, utility, roofing, solar farm, and other industrial inspectors can achieve unmatched clarity from a safe distance.
Meanwhile, emergency response pilots in search and rescue, law enforcement, firefighting, and public safety, can more easily search for and observe in silence while using the thermal zoom to reduce false positives and make critical decisions faster - all thanks to these upgraded thermal cameras and drones.
These images show the effectiveness of the zoom for public safety.
Operators can use in-app features, such as isotherms to automatically detect temperatures of interest, ideal for industrial inspection and public safety where quickly spotting anomalies is mission critical.
Plug-and-Play Thermal Camera For DJI Drones
The TZ20-R offers simplified operation and payload connection via the Skyport V2.0 gimbal on the DJI Matrice 300 RTK (pictured below) or V2 Matrice 200 Series.
Thermal video and still-image data can be recorded on dual microSD cards along with the ability to stream thermal video mid-flight.
Post mission, operators can export the data to FLIR Thermal Studio and third-party data processing software for in-depth analysis and review.
