DJI Matrice 200 Series: The Perfect Industrial Drone Solution
Posted on March 07 2017
DJI has recently added the Matrice 200 to its fleet of commercial/industrial drone solutions. With three different options and multiple configurations for each, this aircraft will fulfill almost all drone operators requirements.
17-inch propellers fixed to powerful motors pair for stable flight, even in strong winds. The Matrice 200 has a dual-battery setup for redundancy as well as longer flight times and automatically heats the batteries when under sub-zero temperatures to ensure it performs to optimum standards in the worst of conditions. The enclosed design offers IP43 (water and dust resistance) to keep it safely in the air in a wide range of environments.
Operation Range: 7km (4.35mi)
Max Flight Time: 38min
Ingress Protection (Water & Dust Resistance): IP43
Max Payload Capacity: 2kg (4.41lb)
The M200 Series drones fold down in a snap and unfold just as quickly. Gimbal mounting plates and aircraft arms stay mounted during transportation so you're ready to fly within minutes.
Aircraft Size & Weight:
716mm (2.35ft) x 220mm (8.66in) x 236mm (9.29in)
Search & Rescue
With the suggested package of dual-mounted Zenmuse Z30 zoom camera and Zenmuse XT thermal camera, first responders can now quickly locate missing people in remote areas and plan the safest approach path.
Wind Turbine Inspection
Improved stability in high-wind conditions as well as a top-mounted gimbal, inspection teams can spot millimeter-sized damage to turbine blades without having to climb to the top, increasing bot efficiency and safety.
The top mounted gimbal option makes bridge inspection quicker and easier than ever. Instead of blocking traffic with a large crane and climbing on suspension cables, inspectors can now fly under a bridge to look for damage again increasing effieciency and safety, as well as reducing insurance cost.
Precision Agriculture: Combine visual and multispectral cameras for quicker crop scouting.
Solar Panel Inspections: Inspect panels with visual and thermal imagery to detect defects.
Firefighting: Get a complete view of a dangerous situation with visual and thermal cameras.
Telecom Inspections: Rapidly detect millimeter-sized damages while conducting routine inspections.
Construction Site Mapping: Quickly obtain data to generate accurate 3D maps for progress tracking.
Offshore Rig Inspection: View inspections of offshore assets remotely to ensure site safety.
Matrice 210 Multiple Configurations
Multiple Payload Configurations
The Matrice 200 Series is compatible with a wide range of DJI camera and gimbal systems.
Zenmuse XT: Precise and rapid aerial thermal imaging with <50 mK sensitivity.
Zenmuse Z30: 30x optical zoom camera ideal for detailed inspections.
Zenmuse X4S: Shoot 20 MP stills with a leaf shutter, ideal for surveying.
Zenmuse X5S: Micro 4/3 camera with multiple lens options for the best image.
DEVELOP AND MANAGE YOUR FLEET
DJI Flight Hub: Oversee your aerial operations remotely to view live inspections and manage your fleet of drones. (Coming Soon)
On Board SDK: Integrate an onboard computer to analyze in-flight data, or connect third party sensors, such as a LiDAR scanner.
Mobile SDK: Develop personalized mobile apps to make flight planning and on-site data collection simpler, faster and repeatable.
Intelligent Flight Features:
The M200 series’ computer vision enables intelligent flight modes to help with data collection. These features are available for multiple DJI sensors, enabling advanced shots such as zooming while tracking an object:
Spotlight: to lock the camera onto a subject during flight while the aircraft moves freely
Point of Interest: to circle around an object for a smooth orbit
Tripod: to fine-tune position and angle for position framing and safe navigation in narrow environments
ActiveTrack: to follow a person or object while keeping it in frame
