ThermoImager TIM LightWeight camera

Share this on social media:

Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has launched a lightweight thermal imaging camera that can be mounted easily to a variety of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), including micro-drones and multicopters.

UAVs equipped with the thermal imager are ideal for numerous potential applications in aerial maintenance, including inspection of solar energy installations and wind power systems, and thermographic surveys of buildings and other tall structures where manual inspection would be costly and time-consuming.

The ThermoImager TIM LightWeight consists of a miniature infrared camera (Micro-Epsilon’s ThermoImager TIM 400 or 450 thermal imager) and a miniature, lightweight ‘NetBox mini’ PC.

With a total weight of 380g, the company say this two-piece system is the ideal choice for aerial thermography applications. Infrared video recordings can be taken, with the video stored on a microSD storage card in NetBox.
