RADIOMETRIC THERMAL CAMERA

WIRIS® Pro

The WIRIS Pro is a fully radiometric thermal camera that has been specially designed for use with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The WIRIS Pro is at the forefront of a new generation of thermal cameras built for the most demanding applications, including industrial inspections, archaeology, and precision agriculture.

State-of-the-art bispectral camera

The WIRIS Pro is a specially designed thermodiagnostic device. Its thermal camera is equipped with an LWIR microbolometric sensor with 640×512 px resolution (in the 7.5 – 13.5 μm range), and its "Super-Resolution-Mode" functionality can deliver a final thermogram in 1266×1010 px resolution. The RGB camera comes with Full HD (1920 x 1080 px) resolution and provides an absolutely unrivaled optical ultrazoom 10x in real-time (6.9° to 58.2° field of vision). The highest possible temperature that the thermal camera can measure is 1,500 °C (2 732 °F).

Broad temperature range
High accuracy
Precise laboratory calibration
The WIRIS® thermal cameras are individually manufactured and precisely calibrated and are delivered with a final calibration certificate along with each unit.

We know that aerial applications present a serious challenge to sensor performance. To ensure the accuracy of the devices in the face of this challenge, all cameras and lenses are calibrated individually.

A thermal camera for both inspection and mapping

The WIRIS Pro thermal camera is designed with both mapping applications and inspection work in mind.

Like all WIRIS cameras, the WIRIS Pro thermal imager operates on the specially designed WIRIS OS platform. The WIRIS OS is built to ensure the security of its WIRIS systems while enhancing their diagnostic capabilities. Photogrammetry, 3D mapping, and 3D modeling are standard post-processing tools that enhance the presentation and visualization of captured aerial data. Together, the hardware and software offer advanced measurement functions that cannot be replicated by any other product on the market.

High Resolution and Thermal Sensitivity

Our thermal camera is equipped with an LWIR microbolometric sensor with 640×512 px resolution and Super Resolution Mode functionality, which facilitates the creation of a final thermogram at 1266 x 1010 px resolution. The standard WIRIS Pro delivers 50 mK temperature sensitivity, and we offer a 30 mK premium version.

WIRIS OS to capture the full potential

WIRIS OS has been in continuous development for over 4 years, and it has been tested on previous generations of Workswell WIRIS® cameras. Today, WIRIS OS allows you to capture the full potential of the camera’s sensor and computing hardware, and thus enjoy functionalities that similar products without an operating system cannot even come close to.

Three Recording Options

Since the WIRIS Pro records a large amount of radiometric data over the course of a single inspection, we decided that it should be the only drone-mounted camera to have its own internal SSD. The WIRIS Pro comes in two storage capacities – 128 and 256 GB – and its data can be offloaded to an external USB drive or micro SD card as well.

SDK – an opportunity to develop advanced applications

We provide an SDK (Standard Development Kit) with every Workswell WIRIS® Pro to enable you to develop your own applications. These libraries give access to low-level functionalities and help the application developer maximize the potential of the camera’s hardware.

Picture in Picture Functionality

The innovative picture-in-picture feature allows you to merge a thermal image with an RGB camera image in real-time, even with 10x optical zoom.

Durable Design

Industrial inspections are often carried out in demanding environments. As a result, there is a high risk that inspection cameras will be damaged during the course of their normal use. That’s why the WIRIS Pro is ensconced in a rugged case of lightweight aluminum. What’s more, the most sensitive component of the entire system, the thermal camera lens, is protected by a replaceable protective cap made of germanium.
