DJI unveils two new payloads for M200 Series
DJI has unveiled two new payloads for the M200 Series of drones – a methane gas detector and a bright spotlight.
The AILF Instruments U10 UAV Based Laser Methane Leakage Detector is a lightweight, high-sensitivity gas detector based on Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS), which enables rapid identification of methane from up to 100 metres away, or at a concentration as low as 5ppm.m.
The Wingsland Z15 is a bright, three-axis stabilised gimbal spotlight with high power beads. With a maximum power of 48W and an operating range of up to 150 metres, this sensor is ideal for nighttime or lowlight missions across various industry verticals, including firefighting, emergency response and law enforcement.
Powered by SkyPort, both the U10 and Z15 can be seamlessly integrated with the DJI Matrice 200 Series V1 and V2 platforms.
A Closer Look At The AILF Instruments U10 UAV Based Laser Methane Leakage Detector
Equipping DJI’s leading M200 Series with the U10 is the perfect solution for critical inspection, helping enterprise customers monitor and maintain facilities like liquefied natural gas plants, gas storage tanks, and gas pipelines.
Combining the U10 with a drone ensures that hard-to-access areas can be reached and that methane leakages are detected and monitored accurately. This means that the data is collected and decisions are made quickly and safely.
Here are some of the key features and advantages of deploying the U10.
Accurate Results from Afar:
Get real-time readings on the concentration of methane from up to 100m away, and adjust the pitch of the gimbal to pinpoint gas leaks in dangerous or hard-to-reach areas while keeping personnel safe.
Visualise the Detection:
The high sensitivity allows detection at a concentration as low as 5ppm.m. Receive concentration data in just 25ms, so you can make decisions quickly. Gain an aerial overview of the suspected leakage site through the 720p visual camera.
Plan flight missions and view flight paths, monitor gas concentration levels and historical trends in real-time, and flag specific points along the flight route for abnormalities, and generate inspection reports – all through the α-ONE iOS application.
Some of the key specifications are:
- Size: 155 x 90 x 100mm
- Weight: 534g
- Camera: Video at 720p.
- Operating Temperature: -20 to 50℃
- Supported Aircraft: DJI Matrice 200 Series, Matrice 200 Series V2.
A Closer Look – The Wingsland Z15 Gimbal Spotlight
Thanks to its high luminance and long operating range, the Wingsland Z15 provides public safety officials crucial visibility in lowlight conditions across many different types of missions, helping teams gain an aerial overview over a large area.
Some applications include:
- Firefighting: Light up a path to guide the public to a safe place after a fire or a natural disaster.
- Emergency Response/Search and Rescue: Locate missing persons in hard-to-reach areas when visibility is low.
- Law Enforcement: Act as a flexible light source for crowd management, forensic investigations, or routine patrols.
- Infrastructure/Facility Repair and Maintenance: When the power suddenly cuts off or when structures collapse at night, the Wingsland Z15 can be used to light up a large area from the air so that emergency repairs can be conducted in an efficient, timely manner. This will help keep both the public and the personnel safe as well as save costs.
So, what are the key features of the Z15?
Switch between Always on, Flashing, and SOS modes for different environments and applications.
Air Cooling System
The built-in air-cooling system prevents the spotlight from overheating by constantly dissipating heat.
The Wingsland Z15 is protected against overheating. The system will automatically adjust when the internal temperature exceeds 90℃.
Supports Dual Downward Gimbals
The Wingsland Z15 can be used with DJI Zenmuse payloads on DJI aircraft that include a dual-downward gimbal, helping to illuminate operations.
The Wingsland Z15 can be controlled using the DJI Pilot app. It supports the use of both Wingsland and DJI Zenmuse payloads on the models that include a dual-downward gimbal, including the M210, M210 V2, M210 RTK, and M210 RTK V2.
The Z15’s key specifications are:
- Dimensions: 100 x 110 x 150mm
- Weight: 500g
- Rated Power: 48 W
- Operating Temperature: -10 ℃ to 50 ℃
- Supported Aircraft: DJI Matrice 200 Series, Matrice 200 Series V2
The DJI M200 Series – The Go-To Drones For Enterprise
The rugged and dependable DJI Matrice 200 Series has been developed to offer professional operators an adaptable solution for industrial use cases, such as surveying and emergency services.
Available in three variants, Matrice 200, 210 and 210 RTK, the 210 models are capable of supporting dual payloads as well as a top-mounted sensor.
