I'm thinking of getting a Flir E4 with the goal to update it for full resolution.
No idea what version i would receive and if that will be possible.

My question is, is it possible to unsolder/dump out the flash contents so i have a known working state a could fall back on if i brick it?
Or is there some hardware features that makes that impossible.

2 questions:
1) How to enter the credit screen that bud implemented?
2) Using Iron or Rainbow with temp range.. and looking at objects like a house with the sky in the background (-40°) - how do I compensate the scale?

I just ask again ;)

2) not sure if this is what you mean, you can switch temperature scale to Manual and play with adjustment of low and high  limit separately or together.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for this forum post once again. I have one newbie question here to ask any pro here.

1. When the surrounding temperature was 31c-32c, the e4 is showing object around 36.1.c.

2. But when it reaches noon time, the surrounding temperature got hotter (38c), the target temperature became higher (abnormal) at around 39c to 40c. Can anyone kind enough to explain the fluctuations in temperature?

3. The unit is being used outdoor. Noon time temp can reach 38c. Morning time is abour 31c-32c.


Thank you very much!

You need to adjust Emissivity, Ambient temperature and Reflected temperature settings.

Hi bud,

Do you mean when it reaches noon time, the ambient temperature needs to be adjusted accordingly? And to adjust it back during the morning?

Sincerely,

You should always match ambient and reflected temperature in Settings if you want better accuracy. These parameters represent vvariables into the object temperature  calculation formula.

In some kind of configuration I got a (cyan) limiter for the lower temperature (by accident) with iron, rainbow and other pallets which might be nice. But I'm not sure how I got it. The other Question is more a general question how to really messure object with the sky in the background? Just ignore it and post-process in flir tools? the sky is more or less always below 0. Or do I just have to adjust ambient temperatur and so on and my issue is gone?

Currently I have a much bigger problem. I overtightened the fixed Focus lense and scratched a ring (from the metal case/frame) in it.. this might wouldn't be much of a problem but now the Image of the sensor and camera do not match as the lense is shifted. Does anyone know how to fix that or get a replacement of the screwed in lense? |O

Edit: If I change "rset image.fusion.ypanvol"  to like 40 it's close..  but not "perfect" from other angels. - I will post pictures tomorrow

Edit2: Hm.. I'm pretty sure I somewhat broke the lense in some way (throug the pressure? - is it possible?) from the distance everything seems fine but in close ups the pictures are way off, like 2-3cm :/ - // Would it be enough to replace the lens and does someone know where to get it?

Edit3: Now I'm not so sure if anything is broken or it's just the distance which causes the shifting. - here some pictures:
- close shots (shifted)
- the scratched lense
- rainbow palet with a minimal range option?! - not sure how this happend but is somewhat nice.

Perhaps you tried just too close ? The stock E4 I believe minimal distance is 0.6m that it can correct for the parallax. Check the "Alignment distance" setting in Settings menu. The liberated E4 can go closer than 0.6m so make sure you set that parameter properly depending on the distance to the object you are trying top measure. The E4 does not have auto-alignment, it is up to the user.
