“I want to use thermal imaging technology on my drone. Now, what would be the best thermal camera I should be using? What is the difference between a Flir Vue, Flir Vue Pro, Tau 2 VPC, Tau 2 ThermalCapture or TC MiniAV?”
From a technical perspective, we at TeAx Technology created on overview to provide answers to that. In our matrix, we consider and compare technical features but also hard facts, such as weight, size and resolutions.
Talking about technical features of the various thermal cameras, we compare the capabilities for
Analog live video
Multiple color palettes
Wide field of view lenses
Record 14-bit data
Remotely start/stop recording
Geo‐location of data
Narrow field of view lenses
Sensitivity (NEdT) < 50mK at f/1.0
Record radiometric data
Per pixel temperature measurements
Record 14‐bit data with full framerate
