DJI Zenmuse XT FLIR Thermal Camera

The DJI Zenmuse XT Thermal camera for use on Inspire and Matrice is available to buy with Heliguy in the UK. This thermography solution for commercial users combines the expertise of two industrial market leaders DJI and FLIR Systems enabling a range of sectors to benefit from a portable, easy to use thermal imaging device.

Currently available for both purchase and rental through Heliguy in the UK, you're guaranteed superior quality support with this exceptional product.

Please Note: Heliguy is only able to supply the thermal camera to UK customers and we are not able to supply to anyone for export.

DJI Zenmuse XT Thermal Camera Details

The Zenmuse XT  combines the FLIR thermal camera technology and stabilisation from DJI's Zenmuse range. Both 336x256 and 640x512 resolutions are available to buy from Heliguy, however. We will also be stocking the following lens sizes: 9mm, 13mm and 19mm. Options outside of these recommended options will have a five week delivery time. Available in radiometric and non-radiometric variations.

The camera on the DJI Zenmuse XT is developed by FLIR. It provides high-sensitivity (50mK) infrared scanning at 640/30 fps or 336/60 fps depending on the camera model. This sensitivity provides accurate temperature measurements ideal for analytics and telemetry. Both cameras are available with four lens options to meet different business needs. Stabilised and controlled by a custom DJI gimbal, it provides smooth, clear imagery and 360 degrees of seamless rotational movement.

Zenmuse XT DJI GO App Image

An Intuitive Thermography Solution

The Zenmuse XT can be controlled completely through the DJI GO app, providing a real-time, low latency view of what the camera sees, and instant access to core camera functions including:

    • Spot metering, temperature measurement at the mid-point (4 x 4 pixels)
    • Digital zoom
    • Single or interval shooting modes
    • Photo, video preview and download
    • Take photos while recording video
    • Palette also referred to as Lookup Table (LUT)
    • Scene, also referred to as Automatic Gain Correction (AGC)
    • Region of Interest (ROI)
    • Isotherm mode

Seamlessly Integrated with DJI Products

When used with either the Inspire 1, Matrice 100 or Matrice 600, the Zenmuse XT can be put into the air in seconds. It is seamlessly integrated, giving it complete access to key features including the powerful Lightbridge video transmission system (providing up to 3.1 miles of HD range), automated Point of Interest, Course and Home Lock, Follow Me, and the DJI SDK.

When combined with the Inspire 1, the Zenmuse XT works with incredible speed, efficiency and convenience. If used with the Matrice 100 or Matrice 600, the Zenmuse XT can stay in-flight for up to 35 minutes (dependant on conditions), ideal for large-scale inspections and especially useful in search and rescue scenarios.

Which Zenmuse XT is Right for Me?

The Standard XT system offers a lower cost solution ideal for emergency services. It's capable of recognising body heat in multiple environments and a centralised spot measures temperature on-screen. For industrial use, the XT Radiometric is able to disseminate hot and cold areas with more accuracy; tap the screen to see the temperature of that pixel. Alert thresholds can be set, activating when the desired temperature is detected.

- 336: Lower price, good performance in most applications -  6.8mm, 9mm, 13mm, 19mm Lenses
- 640: Higher price, more detail at long range & on smaller objects - 7.5mm, 9mm, 13mm and 19mm Lenses

Refresh Rate
- 9Hz: Good for most applications 
- 30Hz: Preferred in dynamic FPV flying, smoother framerates when flying actively

- Narrow FOV: When objects of interest are far away / harder to search for 13mm, 19mm 
- Wide FOV: When flying lower / more situational awareness is important 6.8/7.5mm, 9mm

Thermal Imaging: What Is Emissivity?

A core factor in thermography is the emissivity of the subject. Emissivity measures the target area’s efficiency of thermal energy emission when compared to a ‘perfect emitter’. A measurement that does not account for the real emissivity of a surface will appear “colder” than it actually is. This approach to thermographic measurement directly scales the intensity of the thermal emission with all real values displayed as less than 1.0. The closer the 1.0 you get, the more effective the target's emissivity and lack of reflectivity.

Emissivity is generally determined by the subject material’s composition and surface texture. The most highly emissive materials tend to be organic such as skin, wood, rocks and soil. At the other end of the spectrum, you will find shiny or polished materials which are more reflective and much less emissive. While an object’s emissivity is highly dependent on surface composition, it can also be affected by its roughness, oxidation, spectral wavelength, temperature, and sometimes even the viewing angle or atmospheric conditions such as mist.

For more information on emissivity ratings, take a look at our Thermography Enterprise Page and also the table to the right.

The Benefits of Thermal Sensors

    • Measure temperature: Non-contact assessment and diagnosis
    • Accurately detect people and animals: Ideal platform for reliable analytics
    • See gases: Stand-off detection of gas emissions
    • See in total darkness: True 24/7 imaging
    • Eliminates obscurants: See through smoke, light fog, rain, dust or foliage

Commercial Examples

    • Easily spot people at night*, even under tree cover
    • Find energy loss in a building
    • Find unusual moisture patterns on roofing
    • Detect defects in electrical infrastructure before it fails
    • Detect failure in solar panels
    • See effectiveness of irrigation and plant health in agriculture

* Night rating on your PfCO is needed for nighttime drone operation

Wow..... Just wow

Being from a military background I have considerable experience with thermal imaging equipment. The XT i recently received is an incredible piece of equipment and so far it has proven itself to be very sensitive, affords brilliant clarity and is very well made. The FLIR sensor is such a valuable piece of equipment to own as its added a whole new dimension to my business. I also would like to mention the customer services, communication and team at Heliguy. From start to finish an amazing company to deal with who really value their customers and their opinions. Huge thanks and an amazing piece of equipment.


Highly experienced team in their knowledge of drones & very willing to share their expertise with customers & general public. They have a great website with a vast array of kit. Competitively priced & fast delivery service. I can highly recommend them.

From: Taj


Quick response and above and beyond what I expected with respect to customer care




From: Colin barr


Can’t thank All concerned at heliguy especially Matthew and Michael Fantastic service and help over phone Highly recommended Will go nowhere else for my drone needs Many thanks




From: John Kirk


Thanks for your help. I think I will design one. I did see one that wraps around the base of the handle and has the tripod screw thread offset to the side. I think I can do better, a hinged bottom plate, with a tripod screw hole in the center and a clasp that inserts into the handle release slot.





From: Chris


Fabulously informative. I'm a professional photography by trade but I'm new to drones and perhaps asked some daft questions but they were replied very professionally and very informatively. Many thanks!




From: Michael Fox


Both my emails where answered to help try and fault find my problem, so I can see if it would be cost affective to repair myself. Before deciding weather it's worth spending too much to have the drone sent in for repair.




From: Lynne Medlock


Thank you for sending the receipt over so promptly, really appreciate your help!




From: Dale


I requested a repair. Told heliguy what was wrong. He gave me advice. Totaly sorted all my problems so didnt have to send away. I got a response 29 minutes after i messaged. (Dji still havnt been in contact 24 hours later) saved me a small fortune and will deffo be using these services again. Thanks heliguy





From: Derek Gardiner


Helpful and getting there




From: Alistair Holmes


Very prompt response.




From: Eugenio Manghi


Thank you for the quick answere. It helped me a lot.
