Workswell Wiris Enterprise
Workswell WIRIS® Enterprise is a Multi-sensor Camera that has been specifically designed for use with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV/UGV), or drones. The WIRIS OS and integrated sensors provide unprecedented aerial imaging capabilities for a range of commercial drone applications, including thermal inspections, security applications, firefighting, geological, archaeological, forestry studies, ecological and environmental research.
Workswell WIRIS® Enterprise has been designed first and foremost as an inspection camera. Its thermal camera is equipped with a LWIR microbolometric sensor with 640 × 512 px resolution (in the 7.5 – 13.5 μm range) and the Super resolution mode functionality providing an option to have the final thermogram in the 1 266 x 1 010 px resolution.
The first RGB camera comes with 16Mpx resolution, which is designed primarily for high-resolution imagery and terrain mapping. Second RGB camera comes with Full HD (1920 x 1080 px) resolution and, most importantly, it provides an absolutely unrivaled optical ultrazoom 30x in real-time, which is suitable for security applications.
IP66 AND RUGGED CONSTRUCTION
Industrial inspections are often carried out in demanding environments. As a result, there is a high risk that inspection cameras will be damaged during the course of their normal use. That’s why the WIRIS Enterprise is coming with IP66 rating – Complete protection from dust, oil, and other non-corrosive material also waterproof against rain, snow even from powerful jets of water.
Ensconced in a rugged case of lightweight aluminium. What’s more, the most sensitive component of the entire system, the thermal camera lens, is protected by a replaceable protective cap made of germanium.
Workswell built the WIRIS OS to ensure the security of its WIRIS systems while enhancing their diagnostic capabilities. The WIRIS OS is simply the only software that enables the maximum utilization of the WIRIS Pro’s hardware. Together, Workswell’s hardware and software offer advanced measurement functions that cannot be replicated by any other product on the market.
DEVELOP YOUR OWN APPLICATIONS
Along with the Workswell WIRIS Pro, we provide an SDK (Standard Development Kit) that enables end-user application development. These libraries give access to low-level functionalities and help the application developer to maximize the potential of the camera’s hardware.
There are two SDK variants – the WIRIS Stream SDK, and the WIRIS Data SDK.
We know that industrial applications present a serious challenge to metrological endeavors. To ensure the accuracy of our devices in the face of this challenge, we calibrate each of our lenses individiually. Our thermal cameras are individiually manufactured and precisely calibrated, and we deliver a final calibration certificate along with each unit.
THE WIDEST RANGE OF CONNECTIVITY
Workswell’s WIRIS Pro offers an interface enabling the widest range of connections to the drone, the control unit, an external GPS sensor, and other devices. We provide a Wi-Fi low latency live video streaming and command link, and the WIRIS Stream SDK is also available.
HW COMMUNICATION, CONTROL PORTS AND INTERFACES
- CAN bus (DJI M600 and A3 controller compatible)
- Ethernet (RJ 45 with RTPS streaming and control signals transmission option)
- MavLink – Provides a wide range of standard and custom commands for controlling the thermal camera during the flight.
- GPS connection potential
- External trigger
- CANbus & UART serial communication
ADVANCED SOFTWARE FOR THERMOGRAM ANALYSIS
Thermolab is a software for detailed analysis of thermograms, allowing the user to edit the data into different formats and create clear reports from the thermograms. All standard data analysis functions are available in the program (temperature at a point, minimum and maximum of the area, temperature profile, zoom, temperature scale change, color palette, emissivity, etc.) as well as extended functions such as GPS location of the image and the ability to display RGB digital images.
ThermoLab reads radiometric images and videos only from Workswell thermal cameras.
- With the pixel value indicator you can instantly find the temperature at any point in the image
- ROI (region of interest) measures the lowest, middle and highest temperature for quick problem analysis
- Choice of 19 professional colour palettes to instantly highlight temperature differences
This feature takes thermographic analysis to the next level. With this feature, we can spatially represent significant temperature differences and determine the severity of a possible defect. 3D Graphs are designed to display, for example, surface homogeneity and to Analyse measured temperature data in a 3D representation with a number of advanced features that can be set by the user.
The advantage of calibrated radiometric video is the ability to monitor temperature changes over time. This allows the user to accurately Analyse thermal dynamic processes that cannot be Analysed from a single image. Video analysis can also be used in the 3D Graph function showing spatial differences over time.
Thermolab’s export function makes it easy to create a snapshot, video or numerical temperature matrix in commonly compatible formats such as: jpeg tiff

- Setting measurement parameters (such as emissivity, apparent reflected temperature and atmospheric parameters) for both individual images and radiometric video.
- Inserting measurement functions: point temperature measurements, minimum and maximum in area, polygonal and triangular areas, temperature profile and other functions.
- Display of GPS coordinates on the map and in the case of radiometric video, display of the GPS position of individual frames and the entire trajectory.
- Editing radiometric images (thermograms), changing the palette, changing the temperature range.
- The camera section is used to process data from a camera connected via USB or Ethernet
- The histogram shows the frequency of pixels with the same temperature and works for all ROIs.
- Continuous zoom – advanced zooming and display of thermographic image in detail
- RGB digital image display option
