 Compared to the Lepton 3.5 it doesnt offer temperatur measurements,​ but we are not interested in it anyway so we can use the 3.0 version. Lepton 3.5 cannot be shipped in corona times anyway. Compared to the Lepton 3.5 it doesnt offer temperatur measurements,​ but we are not interested in it anyway so we can use the 3.0 version.

 ''​Needs special material as glas blocks IR. Common materials for LWIR windows include silicon, germanium, and zinc selenide (LWIR absorption in silicon is on the order of 15%/mm, which means NEDT is adversely affected using a silicon window. Bulk absorption in germanium and zinc selenide is negligible, and performance is essentially unchanged provided both surfaces of the window are anti-reflection (AR) coated.)''​ ''​Needs special material as glas blocks IR.

 Its visible, that thin plastics are a option. The actual thinnest one doesnt protect at all, its too thin. But maybe we can find some cheap fitting material, or we use the professional thermal plastics. Its visible, that thin plastics are a option.
