Entry-level thermal sensor

The Workswell WIRIS MINI is a small system for professional use and combines a thermal camera, a digital camera and a processor unit in one ultra lightweight device of just 160 grams


Thermal Sensor





The Workswell Mini is a thermal imaging system designed for commercial unmanned air vehicles, known as drones (UAV). It is a compact system, which combines a thermal camera, digital camera (in a visible spectrum) with the processor unit with the option of a recording unit for recording radiometric data with a digital HDMI system. Data can be stored either in the internal memory or on an external micro SD card. The major advantage of the WIRIS mini system is the wide scope of control in real time directly on standard RC transmitters (WIRIS mini supports the PWM inputs and the SBus). The uniqueness of the system is based on the option for the remote configuration of series settings and parameters which include emissivity, reflected temperature, temperature range, palette, ZOOM and more.

Features Not just a Sensor

    Full Remote Control of all Settings and Updates

    All settings can be controlled easily and during flights. The system retains all settings at the time of shutdown. When repeating measurements, it is therefore not necessary to redefine the parameters in the system. You can repeatedly carry out your assignments very efficiently and quickly. Further measuring functions can be used during analysis on a PC in the CorePlayer Software.

    Temperature Ranging

    Completely new and unique compared to similar systems is to manually setup temperature scales during flights. It guarantees a consistent color scheme in the images – in other words, a certain temperature always has the same color, whether the object is in a hot or cold environment.

  • null

    Temperature Measurements

    The WIRIS automatically shows you the exact minimum, maximum and center point temperature that’s been captured

  • null

    Isotherms and Alarms

    Setup custom isotherms and alarms. With Isotherms you can filter out the temperature you want to detect and let the system automatically notify you when temperature in the scene exceeds the selected limit.

  • null


    You can choose one of the 14 palettes for the best visual representation of a measured scene.

Coreplayer Software

CorePlayer provides all the necessary functions for the analysis of thermograms for nearly all applications. CorePlayer enables you to edit the acquired data, export it to other formats (PNG, AVI etc.) and create self contained reports. All common functions are available in the software for the analysis of radiometric data, as well as the usual functions like creation of protocols, 3D models and highly detailed analysis of radiometric videos, including editing sequences and the option to store individual images, etc.


Analyse Your Data

Simple images will be insufficient and you will need to conduct an analysis and produce a self-contained document with clearly defined conclusions drawn from your measurements.

3D Sample Data


Applications A solution in many ways

Security / Search & Rescue / Firefighting


Ensure the security of our people with thermal imaging: see through fog, smoke, vegetation and bad weather. Enable your night-vision and set temperature alarms on certain targets (humans or animals). Thermal cameras are good to use as a safe guard for buildings or areas. Detecting all living-beings from a far distance, no matter the circumstances. A thermal camera and a drone combined gives security companies, rescuers and fire fighters several major advantages as well as the ability to observe and investigate large areas from a safe distance.

Industrial Inspections

Detect industrial defects that can result in energy or material losses and/or security risks.

A thermal camera can expose problems that cannot be seen on a traditional camera. Defects that can lead to serious problems in the near future can be obtained from the air.


High Voltage

Inspect all kinds of power constructions, detecting defects can prevent energy losses and fire outbreaks.


Building Diagnostics

Detect water and heat leakage of a building with just one easy flight.



Inspect pipelines even below the ground and expand your view from the air. Detect weak areas and corrosion, stay ahead of problems.


Solar Fields

Check the cells of your solar panels, find the weak spots and maximise energy production.
