FLIR LEPTON 2 cores on eBay UK at the moment £80 (New)
« on: March 10, 2016, 10:04:44 pm »
I just stumbled upon someone selling a load of FLIR LEPTON 2 cores on eBay UK. It has an FOV of 50 Degrees. No integral FFC shutter though.

The seller is asking £80 each for these units and describes them as new.

I have no connection with the seller.

Mike

Neither LEPTON 1 nor 3 are available retail ;)

LEPTON 1 - Prototype only. Not released
LEPTON 2 - 80 X 60 pixel. Used in FLIR One first. Available retail.
LEPTON 3 - 160 X 120 pixel. Used in FLIR One Generation 2 first. Not available retail

The seller is offering 80x60 LEPTON 2's. :)

Am I getting senile - what was the Lepton 1?
My guess is these are harvested from old Mk.1 Flir Ones

FLIR never released the LEPTON 1. Their first public release was LEPTON 2. I have no tech spec on the LEPTON 1 sadly. It would not be unusual to name the prototype as the LEPTON 1 though.

Maybe harvested units as you say, he sure has a lot of them though. Defunct project maybe ? He claims they are new.

I asked for more detail from the seller and got the following reply:

New message from: branchco06 (322Turquoise Star)
lepton 2 80 by 60

I also came across the PureThermal 1 from https://groupgets.com/manufacturers/getlab/products/purethermal-1-flir-lepton-smart-i-o-module - anyone use one of these - seems like a fairly plug and play solution.
