The Compact PRO is Seek Thermal's most powerful thermal camera available for Android* smartphones and tablets!
Boasting a number of improvements compared to Seek's Compact and Compact XR models, this camera is ideal for a wide variety of professional inspections. Use it to detect problems with electrical components, use it to find building defects or even use it outdoors to track animals. There's nothing the Compact PRO can't do; if you've been looking for an affordable, high quality solution to get you into thermography, this is the product you've been looking for.
The main difference between this model and the Compact and Compac tXR is vastly improved thermal resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. This means that the image taken with the Compact PRO is higher quality than the same image you'd get with the other models. Similarly, the frame rate of the Compact PRO is also improved to above 15Hz, an improvement on the 9Hz offered on the Compact and CompactXR. This will give you a smoother image when moving with the camera.
There are three different models available in the Seek Thermal Compact series. The following table outlines the difference between each.

Please note that not all Android smartphones and tablets are compatible with the Seek Thermal Compact.
Please review all of the following information carefully to determine whether or not your device is compatible with the Seek Thermal Compact.
Any questions? Please call us directly.
Smartphone Case Compatibility
In some cases, thicker smartphone cases (especially ruggedized ones) will not provide enough clearance around the connection port. To use the camera you must either remove the case or attach the camera using an extender or adapter (sold separately).
Operating System Compatibility
You will require an Android smartphone or tablet running at least Android 4.3 to use this camera and the compatible app.
Please note that the Seek Thermal is designed for use with smartphones with a micro-USB slot running at least Android 4.3. Therefore it has not been tested but may work with many other HTC, LG, Sony Xperia and some Galaxy Tab models.
*Please note that new Samsung phones, such as the S8 are supplied with adaptors which are not OTG enabled. Therefore you will need a separate adaptor with OTG (On The Go) capability in order to connect this Thermal Camera to your device.
List of Incompatible Devices
The Seek Thermal Compact will NOT work with these products.
NOTE: Android devices sometimes orient the microUSB connecter in different directions or locations. For correct usage the USB port should be located on the bottom, with the widest portion of the port aligned with the back of your smartphone. Many LG and HTC devices orient the connecter in the opposite direction, and many devices from Sony and Motorola often position the port on the side. In these cases it is recommended to use a microUSB cable or adapter to allow proper aiming and positioning of the camera (sold separately).

A good cheap alternative to the mainstream equipment and ideal for spot checking circuit boards etc
