Aerial platforms are rapidly becoming vital tools for businesses looking to more efficiently collect information crucial to their operations. As the first integrated aerial camera with an optical zoom up to 30x and digital up to 6x, the Zenmuse Z30 offers unparalleled image data capture. Enterprises are now able to capture the information they require from a greater range, making image data collection significantly faster and eliminates the risk of harm to both personnel and equipment.
Designed to seamlessly integrate with DJI’s Matrice series of airframes, the Zenmuse Z30 works right out of the box and gives access to the intelligent features DJI is known for.
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. As a result of letting you conduct inspections from a distance without the need to fly close, not only is speed and efficiency of your operations increased but the risk of collision is obviated.
Adapting the Z30 to your existing Matrice-based aerial system is easy thanks to its integrated design. Simply slide the camera in the mount and you’re ready for take-off. The Zenmuse Z30 is designed for use with DJI Lightbridge 2, breaking technical limits to increase range up to 3.1 miles (5km). The integrated controller and intelligent algorithms set a new standard for wireless HD image transmission by lowering latency and increasing image fidelity.
See below for examples of how the Zenmuse Z30 can be used in an industrial setting:
Inspections: Safer and quicker cell tower inspections with the Zenmuse Z30. Eliminate the need for dangerous manual inspection and the risk of crashing into assets by inspecting from a distance. Stream your footage to a central hub to reduce boots on the ground and ensure no extra trips are needed. Detect fine damages from afar while avoiding damage to personnel and equipment. Set up your aircraft to circle your object of inspection with Point of Interest for a full 360° view of your asset.
Firefighting: First responders can now quickly get an overview of a scene, and use the 30x zoom to drill down for accurate and specific intelligence to base their strategy on. This is perfect for on-site operations management and can be instrumental in the planning and successful deployment of resources from teams on the ground.
