The FLIR Vue Pro 640 30Hz Thermal Imaging Camera is intended for use with small unmanned aircraft systems, such as drones. This combined with its extensive footage and data capture capabilities makes it suitable for the following applications:
- Search and rescue
- Precision agriculture
- Roof inspections
- Powerline inspections
- Substation inspections
- Cell tower inspections
The FLIR Vue Pro 640 30Hz Thermal Imaging Camera is able to capture 8-bit digital videos in MJPEG and H.264 file formats and can capture 14-bit still images. It has a resolution if 640 x 512 and saves all captured media to the onboard, removable micro-SD card, in this way data is retained even if the camera suffers a transmission failure. The user needs only connect the micro-SD card or the camera to a computer in order to view and download saved media.
In addition to this, when the FLIR Vue Pro 640 30Hz Thermal Imaging Camera is used with the MAVLink function or is connected to any other compatible flight control system, it will save the aircraft’s geo-location and flight data with every image. As a result of this, image-stitching becomes easier, making the FLIR Vue Pro 640 30Hz Thermal Imaging Camera particularly well suited to mapping, surveying and precision agriculture. Moreover, the FLIR Vue Pro 640 30Hz Thermal Imaging Camera is compatible with the Pix4Dmapper software (NOT included), which is designed to create maps using aerial images captured by drones.
The MAVLink feature also facilitates the user’s ability to select colour palettes, start and stop recording and activate the e-zoom function (all via a radio controller) whilst the camera is airborne. MAVLink commands allow the user to operate up to two camera controls; whereas PWM commands facilitate the user’s ability to operate up to four camera controls.
Alternatively, the user is able to configure the camera, pre-take-off, via FLIR’s custom iOS and Android apps. A connection between the camera and the app is made possible by the integrated, low-power Bluetooth module. Via these apps, the user is able to tailor to the colour palette, image adjustment features and PWM inputs to suit his/her requirements; the apps can also be used to initiate recording.
Another integrated feature present on the FLIR Vue Pro 640 30Hz Thermal Imaging Camera is its power-in/ video-out 10-pin mini-USB which provides the user with access to analogue video for downlinking and facilitates easy integration.
The FLIR Vue Pro 640 30Hz Thermal Imaging Camera is able to function as a thermal camera, thermal measurement instrument and data recorder. It includes field-upgradability which ensures that the camera is always equipped with the latest features. These capabilities, combined with its compatibility with drones, means it is ideal for helping teams of workers make informed decisions using aerial thermal data, images and footage.

|* Because the analog video output resolutions (640 × 480 and 320 × 240, respectively) are less than the full sensor resolution captured when saving digital stills and video, their resultant fields of view are slightly smaller as well. Both sets of values are shown here to allow operators the option of choosing the FOVs that most accurately reflect their pre-flight planning requirements.
