What is Lepton UW? Teledyne FLIR Introduces Groundbreaking Micro-Thermal Camera Module


Teledyne FLIR, a subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated, proudly unveiled its newest product, the Lepton UW. This innovative micro-thermal camera module boasts an unprecedented ultrawide 160-degree field of view (FOV) while maintaining a compact size that can fit on a fingertip.

Designed for applications demanding a broad field of view, such as fire detection, process surveillance, and human traffic analysis, Lepton UW is setting new industry standards. The module provides a 120 x 120 effective thermal resolution and a remarkable scene dynamic range, scaling up to 400 degrees Celsius. Upholding the legacy of the Lepton series, it offers unparalleled thermal sensitivity of less than 50 mK. Additionally, it comes with built-in digital thermal image signal processing features, making it a top choice in the micro-thermal camera segment. Clients can anticipate prompt and efficient deliveries, courtesy of the expansive uncooled micro-thermal camera manufacturing infrastructure Teledyne FLIR has established in the US.

Mike Walters, Teledyne FLIR’s Vice President of Product Management, commented, “The introduction of an ultrawide FOV in such a condensed format empowers building system experts to seamlessly incorporate thermal data into cost-effective systems, easing the installation process.” He further emphasized the availability of Teledyne FLIR’s Technical Service Team and a plethora of online resources to expedite the development journey for users.
