UAV / UAS are used on different Inspections works, a large variety of Solutions available, based on applications, most common uses in the Industry are:
1- Roof Inspections (RBG Camera, Thermal Cameras)
2- Cell Tower and Utilities Tower Inspections
3- Wind Turbine Inspections,
4- Industrial Plant Inspection Work (flare stack fro example)
5- Infra Structure Inspections (Bridges , Towers etc.)
To make a solution, the idea is simple , selecting a sensor and compatible platform (UAV). for Thermal Cameras (Infra Red - Heat Sensor), there are more than 3 platforms are compatible, for Zoom Cameras like Z30, Z3, Matrices are available , normal camera (RBG) Inspections , a lot of platforms are available.
For Industrial use , the most common platforms are :
Matrice Series (M100, M600)
Matrice 200 Series (NEW)
Inspire 1 Series
Inspire 2 Series
For Commercial inspection
Phantom 4 Pro can also be used.
Step 1 : Selecting a Sensor
with the industry leading thermal imaging technology of FLIR, the Zenmuse XT is the ultimate solution for rapid and reliable aerial thermal imaging.
The Zenmuse Z30 is the most powerful integrated aerial zoom camera on the market with 30x optical and 6x digital zoom for a total magnification up to 180x. Whether you are inspecting cell towers or wind turbines, it enables you to get a detailed look at structures, wires, modules and components to detect damage.
Normal RGB Cameras / Gimbals
Zemmuse X4S, Zenmuse X5S
Step 2 : Selecting a Platform
Following Table explains Platform Compatibility to Sensors:
The DJI Matrice 100 is a fully customizable and programmable flight platform that lets you to turn your ideas and dreams into reality. Equipped with DJI’s easy-to-fly technology and optimized for easy programming through the DJI SDK, the Matrice 100 is ready to carry any sensors, devices that you want to put into the sky
Matrice 200 Series
Quick Model Comparison
1. M200 model’s features
The M200 Series’ folding body is easy to carry and to set up, with a specially designed travelling case that can carry all necessary parts you need to finish each mission. With a weather- and water-resistant body, rated at IP43, this platform is ideal for field operations. The dual batteries, using either TB50 or TB55 batteries, can reach a maximum flight time of 38 minutes (TB55, no payload). The drone is compatible with 4 payloads: X4S, X5S, XT, Z30 (need a special adaptor to mount XT on M200). The M200 drone is the first DJI drone with the DJI AirSense system, enhancing airspace safety. The DJI AirSense system includes a built-in ADS-B receiver which provides the operator with real-time information about nearby manned aircraft equipped with ADS-B transmitters. AirSense enables safer and more efficient use of airspace, particularly in locations where other manned aircraft may be operating.
The Matrice 600 Pro flying platform designed for professional aerial photography and industrial applications. Pre-installed arms and antennas reduce time required for setup, and the system’s modular design makes it easy to mount additional modules.
Inspire 1 Series
Carbon fiber arms give you the strength to maneuver in the air and they transform, moving out of the camera’s way at the flick of a switch. With a full 360⁰ unobstructed view, you now have the freedom to capture shots independent of the direction you are flying.
Inspire 2 Series
The Inspire 2 takes everything that was good about the Inspire 1 and improves it. It goes from 0 to 50mph (80kph) in just 5 seconds and hits a maximum speed of 58mph (94kph) and has a max descent speed of 9m/sfor unheard of speed and agility in an aircraft this size. A dual battery system prolongs the flight time to a maximum of 27 minutes ,while self-heating technology allows it to fly even in low temperatures. An upgraded video transmission system is now capable of dual signal frequency and dual channel, streaming video from an on board FPV camera and the maincamera simultaneously, for better pilot and camera operator collaboration.
