Success: inexpensive Wi-Fi dongle for FLIR SC6xx-series

(1/6) > >>

Ultrapurple:
Update / spoiler alert: Fraser found some answers and I have purchased something that will hopefully work an Edimax EW-7711UTN that works a treat.


Has anyone got a Wi-Fi dongle that will work with a FLIR SC6xx-series camera, specifically a SC-660?

As I understand it there are only a very few Wi-Fi USB dongles that will plug into the back of the camera and actually work. Doubtless so FLIR could charge a premium for their own unit (which, to be fair, would be guaranteed to work, with no compatibility issues).



If any one knows of a 'compatible' that I can search for then I'd really like to know about that, too.

Thanks al

Giles,

The official FLIR dongle may be seen here…… and the image includes the FCC approval code !

I will look up the licence for you :)

Fraser:
The “P5T” Grantee Code is Ambicom Holdings and there are 28 entries for them on the database. The one you are interested in is here……

It uses a Ralink driver.

Fraser:
You are looking for a Ambicom WL150N

Amazon used to sell it……

Fraser:
Ambicom has gone out of business !

So it would be an idea to search for the WL150N driver and see which chipset it is for. Then search for a WiFi dongle that uses the same Ralink chipset. It is a Circa 2009 product so the chipset will be quite old. The problem will be if the FLIR only recognises an Ambicom WiFi dongle ID.
