Global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Electronics has announced a global distribution agreement with FLIR Systems to distribute Lepton series thermal imaging cameras. Digi-Key selected FLIR due to a growing demand for technology applications in safety and security, unmanned, automation, smart devices, robotics and gaming and augmentation Using high volume manufacturing techniques, FLIR can deliver Lepton at a price point that is an order of magnitude below other thermal camera cores.
“We are excited to partner with Digi-Key Electronics to provide a quick and easy way to purchase Lepton, whether you need one or a thousand,” said Bill Terre, vice president and general manager of OEM and Emerging Markets at FLIR. “Lepton offers unrivaled versatility, at a tenth the cost of traditional thermal camera cores. There is simply nothing like it on the market.”
The FLIR Lepton series enables designers to add thermal imaging technology into applications that were once unreachable due to cost, size and integration complexities. The FLIR Lepton modules eliminate traditional roadblocks, enabling thousands of new product design possibilities.
“We are thrilled to bring FLIR onto our line card and we are already seeing very positive sales activity around the Lepton series of thermal imagers, on a global scale, said David Stein, Digi-Key vice president of Global Semiconductors. “Design engineers now have access to bleeding edge thermal imaging components that will support limitless opportunities for new product development, across a wide spectrum of industries.”
