FLIR signs global disty deal with Digi-Key

Digi-Key responds to global demand for cost effective IoT and automation needs


Global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Electronics, reached a global distribution agreement with FLIR Systems Inc., Wilsonville OR, to distribute its Lepton series thermal imaging cameras.

Digi-Key selected FLIR due to a growing demand for technology applications in safety and security, unmanned, automation, smart devices, robotics and gaming and augmentation using high volume manufacturing techniques.

“We are excited to partner with Digi-Key to provide a quick and easy way to purchase Lepton, whether you need one or a thousand,” says Bill Terre, vice-president and general manager of OEM and emerging markets at FLIR. “Lepton offers unrivaled versatility, at a tenth the cost of traditional thermal camera cores. There is simply nothing like it on the market.”

The FLIR Lepton series enables designers to add thermal imaging technology into applications that were once unreachable due to cost, size and integration complexities. The FLIR modules eliminate traditional roadblocks, enabling thousands of new product design possibilities.

“We are thrilled to bring FLIR onto our line card and we are already seeing very positive sales activity around the Lepton series of thermal imagers, on a global scale”, adds David Stein, Digi-Key vice-president of global semiconductors. “Design engineers now have access to bleeding edge thermal imaging components that will support limitless opportunities for new product development, across a wide spectrum of industries.”
