USB3, GigE Modules for TAU2

USB3 & GigE for FLIR TAU2

Workswell’s USB3 and GigE modules for FLIR TAU2 are designed for easy integration into extension systems and rapid connection to PCs. These modules are compatible with all FLIR TAU2 9Hz/30Hz sensors (TAU2 640, TAU2 320/336, TAU2 160/162/168), and they enable easy access to sensor data, controls, and administration. The FLIR TAU2 is operated and powered through either a USB3 or GigE interface by means of a Hirose 50-pin connector. The entire unit’s internal electronic content is protected by an aluminum case.

Workswell’s CorePlayer software automatically identifies the USB3 or GigE interface and FLIR TAU2 core type, and it delivers a notification in the case of a faulty IP address setting. Depending on the core, the resolution is set to 8 or 14 RAW data formats.

Main Features


The USB3 interface is directly powered through the USB3 cable without incurring the need for an additional external energy source. Its very low energy consumption also reduces the need for special cooling systems.

The GigE interface is directly powered through the Ethernet cable (PoE), and its very low energy consumption reduces the need for special cooling.

Development libraries (SDK) for Windows and Linux x86 are included in the USB3 and GigE module delivery packages. They enable easy integration and data access. Extra analytical CorePlayer software is available for separate purchase and can be used for data analysis or special development libraries for Labview, Matlab, and Linux ARM.



Even as you rely upon the Workswell WIRIS system to execute diagnostic flights, a large part of your work will be dedicated to the analysis and evaluation of its collected data. Most of the time, simply transferring “pictures” will not be enough – a detailed analysis will be required to understand the WIRIS’ thermograms. That is why we offer both Workswell CorePlayer and Workswell ThermoFormat analytical software, which are included in every WIRIS delivery package.

Workswell CorePlayer

Workswell’s CorePlayer software is designed to perform detailed analytics, and it enables the execution of a wide range of actions, including edits, data exports, and the creation of detailed thermogram reports on thermograms. All standard data analysis functions are available within the program, including temperature on the spot, area minima and maxima, temperature profile, zoom, change in the temperature scale, color palette, emissivity, and GPS location for each image, in addition to the display of full-spectrum digital pictures. See our data list for further information on all functionalities.

All versions of the FLIR TAU2 thermal camera can be purchased together with the converter. We deliver thermal calibration for FREE on each unit.
