DJI Zenmuse XT
The most highly-integrated thermal imaging solution for commercial drones – only from DJI and FLIR
Thanks to the Zenmuse XT from DJI and FLIR, thermal imaging from the air has never been easier. By combining DJI’s unrivaled expertise in flight stability, gimbal technology, and image transmission with the industry-leading thermal imaging technology of FLIR, the Zenmuse XT is the ultimate solution for reliable, rapid-deployable aerial thermal imaging. Capture your thermal images faster, covering large areas, and save them for analysis and reporting.
Available in either 640×512 or 336×256 resolutions, the Zenmuse XT has multiple lens options to make sure you’ll have the right combination of situational awareness, magnification, spot size, and area coverage to suit your mission requirements.
The Zenmuse XT provides complete camera control through the DJI Go app. This gives you real-time configuration of camera controls like color palette selection, isotherms, level and span adjustment, and zoom just to name a few. It also lets you control your video recording or still image capture settings with the press of a finger, making capturing the thermal data you need as seamless as possible.
Mounted on either the Inspire 1 or the Matrice 100, the Zenmuse XT is ready to launch in seconds. Its seamless integration gives you access to important features like DJI’s powerful Lightbridge video transmission system, automated Point of Interest, Course and Home Lock, Follow Me, and the DJI SDK.
Fast, efficient, yet stable airframes, the Inspire 1 will keep the Zenmuse XT aloft for 22 minutes. If used with the Matrice 100, the Zenmuse XT can stay in flight for up to 35 minutes*, ideal for large scale inspections and especially useful in search and rescue scenarios.
*Inspire 1: Flight times vary based on flight conditions, with a maximum 22 minute flight time being recorded when hovering with a TB48 battery using the Zenmuse XT gimbal camera. *M100: Flight times vary based on payload and flight conditions, with a maximum 35 minute flight time being recorded when hovering with dual TB48D batteries and no additional payload other than a Zenmuse XT gimbal camera.
FLIR+DJI=Powerful Airborne Solutions
DJI’s Zenmuse gimbal technology has become the industry standard among demanding aerial cinematographers, and everything that makes DJI’s aerial platforms world-class for cinematography also makes them the perfect platforms for aerial thermal imaging: they’re stable, easy to fly, and fully-integrated with apps.
When you get right down to it, the main purpose of any drone is to position a sensor in three-dimensional space; when that sensor is a FLIR thermal imager, you expand the possibilities for drone operators and thermal inspectors alike. Using FLIR thermal imaging from small drones brings new capabilities to dozens of applications like search and rescue, the inspection of power lines, cell towers, bridges, substations, and buildings, firefighting, precision agriculture, and natural resource and wildlife protection.
Applications With the same powerful thermal imaging core used in the most popular cameras in the world, the Zenmuse XT gives expanded flexibility and performance for a price that makes it perfect for applications like:
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. Stabilized and controlled by a custom DJI gimbal, it provides smooth, clear imagery and 360 degrees of seamless rotational movement.
