VuIR Touch Pro
IR means Thermal Vision
for Phantom 4 Pro, Inspire 2, Inspire 1, Matrice 600 Pro, Matrice 100 and other drones
The self-powered Thermal Gimmera System with Wearable Touch Screen controller and GPS MAVLink system. This works natively for FLIR Vue Pro. For FLIR Vue, you can upgrade to FLIR Vue Pro and it will fit. For FLIR Tau 2, we can upgrade it to a Tau 2 Pro and make it work for you as well.
Runs its own rechargeable batteries. Easy snap on and off. No modification to the Inspire 2 or another drone needed.
The Pro version is equipped with GPS module and can feed MAVLink GPS data to the FLIR Vue Pro/Tau Pro for GPS geotagging needed for Thermal Mapping with Pix4D, DroneDeploy...
Gesture mode: tilt&pan the video monitor to tilt&pan the camera! Sway it to switch palettes, zoom, start record... easier for you to focus on the drone.
Check out the version for Boson here.
Version for FLIR Duo Pro R will follow soon.
Mobile - Versatile - Future-proof
It runs on its own rechargeable battery, no need to extract the power from the drone. No modifications to the drone needed = peace of mind on the drone warranty. It can be handheld or transferred to other drones or systems. Increased utility, reduced idle time: you'll get much more out of your investment. Future-proof protects your investment: if you need upgrading the drone, VuIR still functions.
Gesture mode - even more convenient
EZ-Trak: user can tilt and pan the thermal video monitor to tilt and pan the gimbal.
Sway-2-Switch: sway or gently shake the controller to change color palettes, zoom, start record...
This makes it so easy to control the angle the the shot while having most attention on the scene itself.
Geotag with MAVLink
The wait is over: The VuIR Touch Pro is equipped with GPS module and MAVLink communication with the FLIR Vue Pro camera. This allows geo-tagging of the thermal imaging pictures taken with Vue Pro. It's ideal for 3D mapping with Pix4D, DroneDeploy... or simply logging for records. The entire flight paths GPS coordinates and date/time will also be logged onto a micro SD card on the gimmera. You will be able to read out the info for post-flight analyses.
Touch screen & Wearable control
A revolutionized way to control the system. It's so compact that you can mount on top of the Phantom controller, or even wear it on your wrist and switch around quickly on the fly. No more bulky and clumsy second controller. Transporting and storing are much easier, leaving more space for other important gears. Ease of use means you can pay more attention to the actual inspection job itself, boosting your efficiency of your work.
Multiple Pro functions
No more sacrifice of one function for another. Now you can control all the functions the Vue Pro has to offer:
- Tilt & pan the gimbal for perfect viewing angles
- Change color palettes of Vue Pro
- Record thermal video. Take thermal pictures or time lapse.
- Do digital zoom of the thermal imagery
- Recalibrate the camera (FFC/NUC), ROI or Scene.
And more below
With a quick mount, gimmera can be easily and quickly attached/removed: ideal for setting up for the job and unpacking for storing in the existing carrying case of backpack. All of this convenience makes it ideal for any type of job, from casual once-in-a-while to frequent constant thermal imaging works.
The radio communication at 900mhz will not interfere with the main drone radio and HD video, while having the reliability and long ranges of communication. The built-in telemetry will tell you the battery level as displayed on the controller screen, together with the battery level of the controller. You will know when it's time to change the battery. Durations on a single charge: 2+ hours for the controller, and 25-30 mins for the gimmera, which actually outlasts the flight time of the drone itself.
Good CG and flight time
With our design, Center of Gravity of the whole loaded drone is well maintained compared to the unloaded drone: near even loads on the motors = more stable flights and more flight time than other ill-designed solutions. The fully loaded Inspire 2 will fly from 20-22 minutes
Dual Visions - Triple cameras possible
With its own Thermal Video monitor, you will have dual visions, thermal and visible (through the drone's camera), simultaneously. The HD visible live video from the Inspire 2 gives you visual aid for flying and help you adjust the VuIR for best angles. The dual visions greatly enhance the efficiency of the inspection compared to when only thermal vision is used.
Multiple drones compatibility
