FLIR Systems introduces Vue TZ20 dual thermal camera drone payload
FLIR Systems, Inc. today announced the availability of the FLIR Vue® TZ20, the first high resolution, dual thermal sensor gimbal purpose-built for the DJI®Matrice 200 Series and Matrice 300 airframes. Featuring both a narrow-field-of-view and a wide-field-of-view 640×512 resolution FLIR Boson®thermal camera module, the Vue TZ20 offers greater situational awareness with a 20-times digital thermal zoom capability to complete public safety and industrial inspection missions both near and far.
“With the FLIR Vue TZ20, FLIR Systems is introducing our first dual thermal gimbaled payload for the DJI Matrice 200 Series and Matrice 300 airframes,” said Paul Clayton, General Manager, Components Business at FLIR Systems. “Now public safety drone pilots from police, fire, and search and rescue teams, to industrial and critical infrastructure inspectors, will have greater awareness to complete their missions.”
IP44 rated to provide operability in poor weather conditions and weighing just 640 grams (1.4 lbs.) in total, the Vue TZ20 includes a wide-angle Boson with a 95-degree field of view and a narrow-angle Boson with a 19-degree field of view, enabling pilots to put more pixels on target with ease.
FLIR developed the Vue TZ20 with the DJI Payload Software Development Kit (PSDK) and DJI Skyport 2.0 platform, offering simplified, plug-and-play operation through the DJI Pilot Software. Payload functions include thermal video streaming, video recording, and still-image capture with 20-times zoom, enabling operators to conduct missions at safe distances while capturing the thermal data and detail required.
The FLIR Vue TZ20 is available for purchase and delivery today through FLIR and authorized FLIR distributors. Learn more at: www.flir.com/vue-tz20
