$99.00

 Lepton FS is a non-radiometric 160 x 120 resolution micro thermal camera module with reduced thermal sensitivity, reduced scene dynamic range, and up to 3% inoperable pixels but the lowest price ever for a factory Lepton. These units balance performance and price, enabling monitoring applications where radiometry is not required and pixel-level image information is less important than broad thermal data. With the lowest cost per pixel in the Lepton family, low power consumption, and simple integration, Lepton FS provides integrators an appropriate thermal capability for innovative thermal monitoring products in smart building automation, security, occupancy sensing, and more.

Just as we were the first place to get FLIR Lepton seven years ago, we are bringing this new Lepton to you first at a highly compelling price to make your thermal imaging application more economically viable. To celebrate, all accessory boards below are 10% off excluding the new tCam-mini Wi-Fi board.

Tips for integrating Lepton into a Housing

  • Recommended Material
    • PORON®
  • Socket Stack
    • Socket > Lepton > Foam > Window > Enclosure
  • Maximum Force
    • < 1Kg (more force will damage the shutter)
  • The foam must be cut out so that it does not interfere with the mechanical shutter pins.
  • Thickness
    • Depends on the enclosure and spacing, do not exceed 1Kg of force.
