DJM Aerial Solutions, a Middlesbrough-based commercial drone service provider, has enhanced its inspection services with the addition of a new unmanned system.
The DJI Matrice 210 is a newly designed high-specification UAV, designed in line with industrial practices.
A spokesperson from DJM said: “DJI have surpassed themselves in designing this machine to operate in an industrial environment. Drone inspection was, in the past, carried out by the likes of the Falcon 8 or heavy lift UAVs well above the 10kg bracket.
“These UAVs are fantastically designed but with shorter flight times than the M210, the risks are of course greater with more often than not a lot more mass to fall.”
The M210 is capable of 45-minute flight times with 0 payload utilizing its 2 x TB 55, 7660Mah intelligent flight batteries, and has the ability to operate on one battery. If its secondary charge fails the system instantly returns to home without prompt, landing safely in the same location it takes off from.
The M210 has a maximum weight of 6kg, including its full dual sensor payload configuration, allowing attachment of several sensors including the Zenmuse Z30, Zenmuse XT, and Zenmuse X5S.
The Matrice M210 also has the capability to inspect any asset from a safe working distance with the Zenmuse Z30, its 30 x optical zoom and 6 x digital zoom combined with its full 1080p HD.
