Cat has launched its new S62 Pro smartphone which is expected to be a game-changer for more demanding work environments, such as engineering, mining, manufacture, agriculture and wildlife.
Compared with its predecessor, it is 12% more compact, with a 10% bigger screen. It is faster, more powerful and incredibly tough, making it the ultimate work phone.
It incorporates the highest resolution FLIR Lepton thermal imaging as well as isotherm alarming which users can use to monitor a custom temperature range (anything between -20 degrees Celsius to +400 degrees Celsius)
Powered by the FLIR Lepton 3.5 and the new MyFLIR Pro app, the S62 Pro offers a four-fold increase in the number of thermal pixels and an unmatched feature set within the included application. For the first time, professionals and consumers can access FLIR Systems’ VividIR image processing, enhanced MSX (Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging), and visible-to-thermal blending technologies integrated into their smartphone.
Users can now vary the intensity of MSX, which overlays visual outline detail from the scene onto the thermal image or use the new alpha blending feature to combine thermal detail with the visual image from the Sony dual-pixel camera.
Together these upgrades deliver dramatically enhanced image quality, sharper images and higher thermal resolution to provide greater context and understanding of the thermal image you are seeing.
The S62 Pro’s display has been upgraded to 5.7” FHD+ (18 x 9), and memory is now 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM. It also features a faster Qualcomm chipset, Android 10, and a large, optimised long-life battery.
