Flir C5 or HTI HT-A2 ?
« on: August 01, 2020, 07:23:36 am »

Im looking for my first thermal camera.
This is mainly to observe the impact of cooling solution on PCB ( layout, heatsink, thermal pad etc etc ), and the temperature evolution over time, or to check connections quality on the power connectors.

I find that the smartphone form factor is not bad for myself but I don't want thermal camera on USB-C for Android for some reasons.
I could use the camera on a telephone support or a tripod so the Flir C5 seems to be good.
I dont know if It is going to be far superior to the C2 for what I want to do....and finally there is the HTI HT-A2 which has much better resolution but I can't find much information on those two.

I just could see that the HTI might have been a bit noisy sensor and I have often seen people changing the optics to focus more closely.

Do you have an opinion on these two models or others which could be suitable?

Thank you  :)

Is essentially Lepton 3.5 vs Seek QVGA at heart. You can add a lens for closeup on both.

And I would always like to remind everyone that the C5 is obsolete as the CAT S62 has better specs for the same price.... And is a fully fledged phone compared to just a gadget.

It will be a question of features, and the FLIR will give you radiometric images that you can use in the various software tools, where for Seek based products this has been a little difficult at times.
