Thermal by FLIR powers new ruggedized mobile phone and assisted reality wearable solution

Teledyne FLIR is showcasing two new Thermal by FLIR products with collaborators Blackview and RealWear at Mobile World Congress (MWC). The new rugged BL9000 Pro 5G mobile phone from Blackview and the new RealWear NavigatorTM Z1 assisted-reality wearable feature the FLIR Lepton 3.5 thermal micro camera module.

The new Blackview BL9000 Pro features MyFLIR Pro, the most advanced user application in the market. The upgraded app empowers BL9000 Pro users with the patented image processing capability, VividIRTM, along with advanced features including temperature alerts, isotherms, and MSX intensity adjustment to view thermal images in greater detail. The BL9000 Pro can also interface with the Teledyne FLIR Mobile SDK for Android OS, allowing for approved third party apps and enterprise software integration.

“This is the only handset on the market with the latest Android 14, FLIR Lepton 3.5, 5G connectivity, and MyFLIR Pro advanced thermal ecosystem offerings, making it the ultimate smartphone device for getting the job done in harsh environments,” said David Xu, founder, general manager, and CEO, Blackview. “We are proud to launch an enhanced, ruggedized handset that provides a masterful blend of practicality and innovation in technology and design.”

RealWear’s Navigator Z1 hands-free headset is the first intrinsically safe assisted-reality thermal product built for oil and gas professionals in production environments. The Z1 allows for hands-free communication and two-way data sharing that revolutionises knowledge sharing while tackling operational inefficiencies and mitigating safety risks. RealWear’s hardware and software, enabled by the power of the FLIR Lepton 3.5, provide streamlined workflows in the most hazardous of environments.

“It is always impressive to see the new ways that our innovative Thermal by FLIR collaborators integrate our camera modules and use our experience to develop cutting-edge, high-value products to industry and consumers,” said Mike Walters, vice president, uncooled thermal imaging camera cores, Teledyne FLIR.

Thermal by FLIR program collaborators benefit from more than four decades of dedicated thermal industry expertise, gaining assistance across every stage of product exploration from development to marketing.
