How do I use the thermal features of my ANAFI Thermal?

About Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging – or infrared (IR) thermography – is the process of acquiring, measuring and analyzing thermal information from non-contact devices, such as ANAFI Thermal’s FLIR Lepton 3.5 camera.


Thermal imaging devices transform invisible IR radiations, or heat transfers, into colored images the human eye can interpret and analyze.


To access ANAFI Thermal’s thermography mode, either tap the “THERMAL” box on the homepage of FreeFlight 6 or tap the “SPECTRUM” box on the lower bar of the HUD and select “Thermal”.


Presentation of the Thermal HUD

* Note that depending on your device (tablet or phone) and OS (iOS or Android), lowest and highest scene temperatures can be displayed on the right part of the screen, under the “PREFERENCES” icon.


Note the “Pause view” button enables you modify your settings through the “PREFERENCES” icon, on the far right of the top HUD bar: exiting the PREFERENCES menu brings you back to the “paused view”. This is especially useful, for example, when you want to change your settings for a precise inspection.


As for the Visible Spectrum, you can record both Thermal photos and videos:

Make your choice through the photo/video toggle button in the lower bar of the HUD.


When in Thermal Spectrum:

The choice of photo modes is limited to three options, each of which delivering 3264x2448 rectilinear JPEG thermography images:


  • Single shot
  • Timelapse (10, 30, 60, 120 or 240 seconds intervals between shots)
  • GPS Lapse (5, 10, 20, 50, 100 or 200 meters spherical intervals between shots)


Remember that all thermography pictures taken by ANAFI Thermal can be analyzed and processed into a report with the free version of FLIR Tools ® (smartphone app and desktop software).
