Workswell WIRIS (640 x 512 resolution)

Workswell WIRIS (640 x 512 resolution)
  • Workswell Airvision thermographic system


Workswell WIRIS is unique thermal imaging system for unmanned aircraft. It is a compact system that combines thermal camera, a digital camera and a control unit.

Workswell WIRIS system is a comprehensive solution that gives “airial” thermography completely new possibilities. Control of the system, measurement capabilities and ease of use are the same as in handheld thermal imagers. Except that in this case is the controlled camera a few hundred meters from the user, and everything can be done with switches of standard RC controller.

Workswell WIRIS is revolutionary between the thermal imaging systems primarily due to its possibility of full control in real time during the fly via very standard RC controller. Remotely, it is possible to view and store fully radiometric image data (images and video) – ie. records that retain all the information about the capturing parameters, which can be subsequently fully processed in the supplied software.

Unprecedented on similar systems is setting the manual range of temperature scale, which guarantees a constant color scheme of images – ie. a certain temperature has always the same color, whether the object is in an warm or cold environment. In addition, the user can quickly remotely define alarm limits, select one from 14 types of color palettes, set the value of the emissivity, reflected temperature and other parameters, search for and measure themaximum and minimum temperature in the measurement area or measuring the temperature in the middle of frame. The system remembers all settings of the moment before shutting down, so by the repeated measurements is not necessary to re-define the system, you need just turn it on and you can measure.

The thermal camera, built in Workswell WIRIS has a resolution of up to 640×512 pixels and a temperature range of -40 °C to 550 °C. High-quality sensor with sensivity from 30mK ensures minimal noise in images. Camera can see at night, in fog, in smoke. Parallel view of digital camera enables better orientation in space and user can easy guide the drone above the desired location. Monitoring of the objects from long distances makes the zoom function easy. Thermal camera has continuous digital zoom (up to 14x), the camera for visible spectrum zooms even 16x.

The Workswell WIRIS unit is light (only 400 g) and has very small dimensions (139x84x69 mm). The futuristic design of the cover is not an end in itself, it satisfies all that is necessary for the proper attachment to the gimbal of drone (with a mounting thread on the top and bottom).

Advantages of the Workswell WIRIS


Advanced settings allows you to configure the whole system exactly as you need


The system offers variety of measurement tools, such as hot/cold detection or center spot


Let the system automatically notify you when temperature in the scene exceeds the selected limit


You can choose one of the 14 palettes for the best visual representation of a measured scene


Select automatic temperature range for optimal contrast or manual in order to see the det

Advantages of the Workswell WIRIS

  • You can use it in a day or night, even in complete darkness
  • You can search objects through the fog, thick smoke and partly through the vegetation
  • You can control the system during thy fly via very standard RC controller
  • You can record radiometric data (video and images) – storing temperature values, not only image data, i.e. the possibility of subsequent analysis and editing of obtained data
  • One touch system for saving all images (thermal, visible, alarm) at the same time
  • Looking for maximum and minimum values, correction parameters (emissivity, reflected temperature, humidity …)
  • Manual adjustment of temperature scale – contrary to automated systems this ensures color uniformity measured temperatures, thus a better interpretation of images
  • Great zoom of thermal camera – continuous up to 14x digital zoom (digital camera has zoom up to 16x)
  • You can link the image temperature data with the value from an external GPS receiver
  • 14 color temperature palettes, 2 image modes (Thermal, Visible), 4 alarm modes (Above, Below, Between, Above & Below)
  • Software for image analysis, video editing, export to AVI, GPS tracking and measuring
  • Zoom – get closer to objects of your interest by using continuous digital zoom
  • Recording – you can take up to 80 000 of radiometric images, or record up to 2 hours of radiometric video
  • Inputs – the system allows you to remotely control all its functions using 2 to 8 channels of your UAV controller
  • GPS – connect an external GPS and see exactly where images and videos were taken

Modes and alarms of the Workswell WIRIS

The aim of the whole system is the simple transfer, storage and processing of radiometric (temperature) data directly from a UAV (drone) and displaying the data on the screen of the remote control in real time. The system offers three picture modes that can be set by the operator using the keyboard prior to take off. During the flight, the operator can switch between the modes using the UAV remote control.

Standard Infrared image

Standard mode allows users to set different color palettes, Max and Min temperature analysis, set automatic or manual temperature range and displays all the data on the operator’s controller on the ground.

Alarm (security) mode

Alarm mode allows users to set limit temperature and see (find) only objects (places) with higher or lower temperature than is set, eventually temperatures between or above and below two limit values. This is the key mode for security and industrial applications. Max and Min analysis is also available in this mode.

Digital camera mode

Digital camera mode allows the operator to see the area in the visible spectrum. Parallel view of digital camera enables better orientation in space and user can easy guide the drone above the desired location.
