Thermal Imaging Smartphone

The CAT 560 is a thermal imaging smarphone that comes with an integrated FLIR Lepton microcamera. The phone, part of the Caterpillar brand, is completely waterproof.

The unit’s built-in thermal imaging camera (TIC) makes the device suitable for firefighting applications, including use for initial 360 sizeup and during search and rescue operations and overhaul.

The unit features a built-in thermal camera, is waterproof to depths of five meters for up to one hour, is hardened to resist damage from drops, features a bright display and Gorilla Glass 4, and also offers wet finger and glove-on working technology. 

The TIC displays a live thermal image, measures surface temperatures, and can capture both still images and video. The HD screen is 4.7 inches. The phone also featurs a 13-megapixel main camera with dual flash and a five-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone has 32 gbytes of ROM and three gbytes of RAM. It uses the Android™ Marshmallow operatint system.

To access the FLIR thermal camera in the Cat S60, users will open FLIR’s @Work app that comes pre-installed on the device. Opening the app powers the thermal camera on and allows users to begin seeing the world around them in thermal and to take photos or videos.
