TeAx has unveiled its smallest and lightest solution to hit the drone market yet – and as well as being able to stream thermal imaging it also utilises an Ethernet interface.
The commercial drone company’s latest product is able to optimise live data streaming to FLIR Tau 2 cores and FLIR Vue Pro / R cores.
Being designed for two existing drone models, the ThermalCapture IRnet brings real-time access in drone flight operations to thermal imaging data.
However, next to real-time access, it also stores the full 14bit radiometric thermal data on a microSD card. Real-time access remains available whilst radiometric data are being recorded to the microSD card and operators can also control the camera and settings via Ethernet, according to the company.
“Especially over the last year we recognised an ever increasing request for drone thermal imaging solutions providing an Ethernet interface,” said Markus Ax, co-founder of TeAx Technology..
TeAx also explains that the use of an Ethernet interface allows for greater data privacy for clients. “That said, we don’t have any access to collected data from our clients – unless they actively share those with us, for instance to get support or special features requests over to us,” he commented.
