Please note that there are four versions of this thermal camera available. All cameras work exclusively with DJI Matrice or Inspire 1 drones (sold separately).
All models come with the same 9mm lens, however there are two models which are classed as 'radiometric' - they have the ability to analyse the temperature reading in every pixel on the taken image. The non-radiometric versions do not have this capability.
These cameras are also available with your choice of 9Hz or 30Hz frame rate. The 30Hz model delivers a more stable image when moving; however there are some limitations on who this version of the camera can ship to (please call us for more information on this process.
Take to the skies and see the world in thermal with the powerful FLIR thermal camera, the Zenmuse XT.
Precision-made for use with DJI drones (see below for more information on compatibility), the camera attaches to the drone by a 360° rotating precision gimbal; the user controls the camera's operation and the drone itself from the ground using a controller and an iPad/tablet or smartphone. The camera relays real-time thermal data back to the controller, making piloting and gaining quality thermal footage as simple as possible.
This thermal camera can be combined with a DJI drone for a wide variety of thermal surveys, including search and rescue, building studies and as a firefighting aid to plot the correct course of action when tackling fires.
Here's the important specs of the camera:
|Zenmuse XT Specs|
|Thermal Resolution - The quality of images captured using the camera||336 x 256 pixels|
|Frame Rate - the rate at which the camera displays video. The higher the frame rate, the smoother the image||9Hz and 30Hz versions both available|
|Thermal Sensitivity - the ability of the camera to adjust itself to different temperatures||<50mK at f/1.0|
|Pixel Pitch - the lower the value, the higher quality the image||17μm|
|Thermal Imager Type||Uncooled VOx Microbolometer|
|Photo Formats||JPEG (8 bit) and TIFF (14 bit)|
|Digital Zoom||2x, 4x and 8x|
|Lens||6.8mm lens (45 x 35°)|
If you choose the 'Kit R' version of the Zenmuse XT when ordering, you'll gain a variety of extra features not included on the standard model.
The most beneifical of these is fully radiometric imagery; with this, you can hone in a specific point of the thermal image and get a precise, reliable temperature reading from that point.
Here's what's included in the Kit R model
This camera and its stabilising gimbal can be attached to DJI's Inspire 1 and Matrice 100 aircraft.
The gimbal system is designed to seamlessly integrate into these drones. When in the air, you can use the powerful DJI Lightbridge system to transfer live images and videos to a control point (included with the drones) from up to 3.1 miles away!
When attached to the drones, the equipped gimbal system gives the camera completely smooth, clear imagery and gives the user full 360 degrees of seamless rotational movement.
