Elistair has introduced its Ligh-T version 4, its new generation of drone tether system.
Launched at AUVSI Xponential in Chicago, the newest development in a product first released in 2015 has a 230-feet long micro-tether.
Throughout its four year development, emergency services and public service bodies have all had input.
The new version provides unlimited power to a wide range of drones thanks to the Plug and Fly Air modules and is compatible with DJI’s M200 V2, M200 V1, Inspire 1 and 2 and the Yuneec H920.
Unlimited data transfer is also possible through the device’s 10.5 g/m micro-tether.
The micro-tether is also equipped with a new Dual Mode Tether Management system (DMTM), enabling smart motorized control of the micro-tether tension while allowing the user to manually wind and unwind manually, in case of power outage for example.
The smart system is completed by the T-Monitor application that allows a full monitoring of the drone tether station’s state during each flight.
