Don't Dread Drones - Pro Drone Available

DJI has unveiled the new Matrice 200 drone series (M200), which is purpose-built for professional users to perform aerial inspections and collect data – making drone technology an affordable tool for enterprises that recognise how aerial imaging can transform their operations.

The M200 series’ folding body is easy to carry and easy to set-up. With a weather and water resistant body, it is suitable for field operations. It offers an upward-facing gimbal mount, opening up the undersides of bridges, towers and other structures to inspection. It is compatible with DJI’s powerful X4S and X5S cameras, as well as the high powered Z30 zoom camera and the XT camera for thermal imaging.

It has a forward-facing and a first-person view camera, allowing a pilot and a camera operator to monitor separate images on dual controllers.

Its safety features include obstacle avoidance sensors facing forward, up and down, as well as an ADS-B receiver for advisory traffic information from nearby manned aircraft.

With a dual battery set-up, the M200 platform can fly for up to 35 minutes with a mounted camera.

“Drones have quickly become a standard part of the enterprise toolkit and industrial users have come to rely on DJI technology to efficiently collect aerial data,” said Paul Guo, Director Enterprise Solutions at DJI.

 

Standard and Pro versions

The M200 series comes in three versions. The standard M200 is equipped with one downward-facing gimbal mount. The M210 opens up for multiple payload configurations – one single downward facing gimbal mount, two parallel downward-facing gimbal mounts or one upward-facing gimbal mount. The M210 features additional connectivity ports to support third party sensors and accessories. The M210 has the capability to support additional sensors in the future and additional payload can be mounted on top of the aircraft. The M210 RTK is available with D-RTK modules for precision navigation.
