Teledyne FLIR TAU® 2+

TAU® 2+ LWIR Thermal Imaging Cores

640 17µm pitch thermal cores with improved NETD of less than 25mK.

Supplier: Teledyne FLIR

Technology type: Infrared Thermal Cores and Lenses

Plug-and-play with Teledyne FLIR’s TAU® 2+. This solution is an advanced, high-performance thermal imaging OEM camera module made in the USA.

With real-world-tested Tau® 2 mechanical, electrical, and optical interfaces, the Tau® 2+ is a drop-in replacement, and with a 1.5x sensitivity improvement and an entirely redesigned image processing engine, it delivers to expectations on contrast and sharpness, even when operating in the most challenging environments.

Range features

A high level overview of what this range offers

  • Object detection at greater distances
    - NEDT of less than 25mK (millikelvin), delivering significantly improved detection, recognition, and identification (DRI) performance
    - Wide lens options and simple optical interface for integrator-designed optics - improved DRI can now be exploited over multiple Fields-of-View (FoV)
  • Resolve key information with sharper images and improved contrast
    - Best-in-class image processing algorithm providing clearer thermal details in challenging environments
    - A new level of minimum resolvable temperature differences (MRTD), improved scene contrast with blacker blacks and whiter whites, and a low image noise
