WIRIS mini

Workswell WIRIS mini is a thermal imaging system designed for commercial unmanned air vehicles, known as drones (UAV), which, compared with the traditional version of Workswell WIRIS, has significantly smaller dimensions and weight. It is a compact system, which combines a thermal camera, digital camera (in a visible spectrum) with the processor unit with the option of a recording unit for recording radiometric data with a digital HDMI system. Data can be stored either in the internal memory or on an external micro SD card.

The major advantage of the Workswell WIRIS mini system is the wide scope of control in real time directly on standard RC transmitters (Workswell WIRIS mini supports the PWM inputs and the SBus). The uniqueness of the system is based on the option for the remote configuration of series settings and parameters which include emissivity, reflected temperature, temperature range, palette, ZOOM and more.

What is also extraordinary is the precision of measurement, which achieves the value ±3 °C. This includes the Workswell WIRIS mini, together with the traditional construction of the Workswell WIRIS, which are metrologically considered to be the most precise thermal cameras for drones. For this parameter, they are suitable for metrologically demanding applications that include industrial inspections, precise agriculture, diagnostics of buildings, and more.

The Workswell WIRIS mini is also small. Its dimensions are only 85 x 65 x 45 mm and it weighs 160 g.

The Workswell CorePlayer can be used for analysing the captured images and creating reports. The Workswell ThermoFormat software can be used for bulk editing and exporting images (for example, to create 3D models).

The Workswell WIRIS mini thermo-vision system is supplied with a resolution of 384×288 pixels. The final images can be stored in the following formats:

  • Radio-metric JPEG
  • Radio-metric TIFF
  • JPEG in the visible spectrum from a digital camera
In the case of GPS connection, the GPS coordinates are saved to individual images.
