The wait is over. Get the latest in thermal imaging technology with the Radiometric FLIR® Lepton™ 2.5 core and bundle it with our PureThermal 1 Smart I/O Module (below) to easily get factory-calibrated non-contact temperature data over USB and other comms paths.The FLIR Lepton 2.5 camera core is a long-wave infrared (LWIR) thermal imaging marvel that builds upon its 2.0 predecessors in that it now delivers a factory-calibrated temperature value for each pixel irrespective of the temperature of the camera itself. This has long been desired by the Lepton developer community. Already have a PT1 and don't want to wait? Lepton 2.5 is available now in our store.
Much like the 2.0 cores, the 2.5 core has a resolution of 80x60 pixels and the same 8.5 x 11.7 x 5.6 mm package that draws only 150 mW nominally (and 650 mW during shutter events). The frame rate is still 9 Hz at a spectral response wavelength range of 8 - 14 microns (nominal). Basically, it fits into the same socket and its electronically interfaced the same way as Lepton 2.0 so there is no need to hack your current development system hardware but your firmware may need some tweaks. Speaking of tweaks, the PT1 in this bundle ship with our latest firmware release to accommodate the 2.5 core.
