FLIR Boson® 320 - 4.5mm Lens
Compact LWIR Radiometric Thermal Camera
The Boson® longwave infrared (LWIR) thermal camera module sets
a new standard for size, weight, power, and performance (SWaP). It
utilizes FLIR infrared video processing architecture to enable advanced
image processing and several industry-standard communication
interfaces while keeping power consumption low. The 12 µm pitch
Vanadium Oxide (VOx) uncooled detector comes in two resolutions –
640 x 512 or 320 x 256. It is available with multiple lens configurations,
adding flexibility to integration programs.
With a weight as low as 7.5 g and a camera body as small as 21 x 21
x 11 mm, the Boson represents an industry-leading reduction in SWaP
with no reduction in performance. Advanced embedded processing and
video analytics, as well as software-customizable functionality, give
this small camera big capabilities, including integration with auxiliary
sensors such as third-party cameras, GPS, and IMU.
Your Application, Now With Radiometry.
There are times when a simple thermal image is not enough to interpret a scene. In these scenarios,
the ability to detect and record the temperature data from every pixel is vital to the task at hand.
Radiometric thermal cameras measure the intensity of infrared signals reaching the camera to provide
an accurate temperature reading of objects in the scene.
Built-In Spot Meter Accuracy
Boson Radiometric cameras include a Spot Meter Accuracy software feature that provides an assessment of how accurate a given temperature measurement appears in the scene. Available as telemetry data accessed through the Boson SDK or the Boson graphical user interface (GUI), this feature provides guidance across five confidence grades, offering in-the-moment assessment to help improve temperature measurement confidence.
