The first truly wireless mobile infrared camera

| By Mary Page Bailey

FLIR One Edge Pro (photo) is said to be the first truly wireless thermal-visible camera for mobile devices. Unlike previous models, the reimagined FLIR One Edge Pro doesn’t need to be physically connected to its companion mobile device, nor does it have separate models for specific operating systems, providing maximum flexibility for thermal inspections. The IP54-rated FLIR One Edge Pro has a spring-loaded clip designed to allow operators to attach the camera to many types of mobile phones and tablets. Thanks to the combined Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connection, users can operate the Edge Pro up to 30 m away from their mobile device, providing the flexibility to effectively inspect hard-to-reach places or those scenarios requiring greater standoff distances to maintain operator safety. The device features a 160×120-resolution thermal-imaging camera paired with a visible camera. The MSX image-enhancement feature overlays the edge detail of the visible camera onto the thermal image without sacrificing any thermal data within the image. — Teledyne FLIR LLC, a Teledyne Technologies company, Wilsonville, Ore.
