FLIR Vue Pro
FLIR Vue Pro – Overview
Introducing FLIR Vue™ Pro – Take drone thermal imaging and data recording to the new heights with Vue Pro
With FLIR Vue™ you get all the thermal imager you need for sUAS operations without having to pay for functionality you’ll never use.
Designed for professional use, FLIR Vue Pro is more than a thermal camera, it is a thermal measurement instrument and data recorder that adds tremendous value to your sUAS operations and services.
Still with the same industry-leading thermal imaging quality and great value as the best-selling FLIR Vue, the Vue Pro adds full data recording of thermal video and 14-bit still imagery. FLIR Vue Pro also uses FLIR Vue’s popular and convenient power-in/video-out connection over a 10-pin mini-USB making integration a snap, and ensuring that you’ll have easy access to analog video for downlinking.
FLIR Vue Pro gives you in-flight control of two camera functions through direct PWM connections, and it’s future MAVLink compatibility will make it ready for the easy image stitching required for mapping, survey, and precision agriculture applications. Plus, it’s compatible with Pix4Dmapper right out of the box.
The convenient mobile app makes pre-flight camera set-up and configuration quick and easy so you won’t have to drag a computer out to your flying site just in case you need to change a camera setting.
Best of all, with MSRPs starting at only $1,999, FLIR Vue Pro is the only thermal imager your drone operations will ever need, and it’s affordable for today’s commercial sUAS operations.
FLIR Vue Pro gives you more than thermal images, it gives you thermal data for informed decisions.
Vue Pro records 8-bit digital video in MJPEG or H.264 formats and 14-bit still imagery to a removable micro-SD card so you won’t lose any of your data to transmission loss. Imagery is saved to the micro-SD card and can be retrieved either from the card or by plugging the camera into a USB cable, where your computer will see it as a storage device.
MAVLink Integration & Camera Control
Like Vue Pro, Vue Pro R’s Accessory Port connection gives you access to MAVLink commands camera controls over PWM commands, so you can select color palettes, start and stop recording, or trigger the camera’s e-zoom in-flight from your radio controller. If MAVLink is enabled, two camera controls are available; without MAVLink you can control up to four camera controls.
Easy to Configure
Vue Pro comes with a built-in, low-power Bluetooth module, so you can easily configure your camera with our custom iOS or Android apps before you take off. Change color palettes, set your image optimization features, configure your PWM inputs, and start recording all without lugging a computer to the field.
Power & HDMI Video Module
An optional accessory, the Power/Video Module makes Vue Pro R easier to integrate than ever. Its 10-pin mini-USB connector accepts a much wider span of input power – from 5 to 28 VDC – and provides reverse polarity protection. This connector still provides analog video output and gives you access to the camera’s on-board storage like any other USB device.
Its micro-HDMI connector outputs HDMI video that is compatible with digital drone airborne systems like DJI Lightbridge and 3DR Solo, making full digital downlink of thermal video a breeze. All this in a package that’s only 11 mm thick and weighs 15 grams.
The Power & HDMI Video Module is an accessory and is sold separately.
With the same powerful thermal imaging core used in the most popular cameras in the world, FLIR Vue Pro gives expanded flexibility and performance for a price that makes it perfect for applications like:
- Search and rescue
- Precision agriculture
- Roof inspections
- Power line inspections
- Substation inspections
- Cell tower inspections
- And anything else you can dream up
