TeAx ThermalCapture addon for FLIR Boson

TeAx Technology has announced the release of the company’s first ThermalCapture add-on for the new FLIR Boson thermal core. The add-on provides a serial interface (UART) and enables users to communicate with the FLIR Boson and the sync interface to integrate with other sensors. This is especially ideal for designers of thermal capture UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and other unmanned systems.

“Since the FLIR Boson is finally available on the market, we at TeAx have just started with a series of exciting developments for this thermal core from FLIR,” commented Stefan Thamke, one of the founders and CEOs of TeAx Technology. “We started with an add-on for the FLIR Boson, which particularly enables drone system integrators to communicate with the FLIR Boson via UART.” The new add-on is a lightweight board that interfaces between the FLIR Boson thermal core and a VPC module.

“In addition to the serial interface we now provide, the new add-on also allows synchronization of signals between the FLIR Boson and additional sensors that our clients may want to combine with each other,” continued Stefan Thamke. “We recognize a demand from the drone market that clients would like to combine and synchronize multiple sensors with each other. This is the answer from TeAx to those who work with multiple sensors, amongst professional thermal ones from FLIR.”

Michael Thoss, VP Sales & Marketing, added: “I am happy that we at TeAx – again – are one of the first who can provide additional values to the new thermal cores from the market leader FLIR. without revealing too much yet, there are more exciting solutions and add-ons to be announced shortly for the global thermal drone industry.”

Overview of features:

  • Control of Boson Cores without the need for USB
  • Low-Level interface for maximum control
  • Access to External Sync for sensor fusion
  • Customizable for special client request
