PureThermal OpenMV dimensions


  • Due to the chip shortage units will not feature the WINC1500 onboard as it cannot be purchased at this time. However, you can easily solder a module onboard the system by hand if you already have one or if you buy it later.
  • The FLIR Lepton is sold separately. The PureThermal OpenMV is completely functional without a FLIR Lepton except that you will not be able to get a thermal image without it.
