Aerial thermal imaging has become more popular and now with the DJI Zenmuse XT it is easier than ever. The all new Zenmuse XT was created in collaboration with FLIR and features the TAU 2 Series core.  The gimbal was created to integrate the TAU 2 core for use with the DJI Inspire 1 and Matrice 100 drone and utilizes the DJI GO app for controlling all of its features.

INTEGRATED THERMAL CAMERA

The DJI Zenmuse XT and FLIR camera provide high-sensitivity (50mK) infrared scanning at 640/30fps. This level of sensitivity allows for more accurate temperature measurements, and this makes it ideal for telemetry and analytics. Both cameras are available with four different lens options on order to fit any industries needs. The custom designed DJI gimbal allows for full 360 degree control via the DJI Inspire 1 Remote Control.

PRECISION FULL SCREEN TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT

The Zenmuse XT Advanced Radiometry camera provides twice the temperature measurement accuracy of the standard Zenmuse XT along with new analysis and recording functions. Simply tap any point in an on-screen image to view the temperature of that point or select an area to measure the average, highest and lowest temperatures as well as their location. The camera can also be calibrated to further increase temperature measurement precision by setting external parameters including background temperature, scene emissivity and more. If photos are captured in the TIFF format, the temperature of each pixel can be recorded for further processing and analysis. A temperature alert threshold can be set, automatically activating when that temperature is detected. This capability could simplify and accelerate search and rescue and inspection activities.

IMAGE ENHANCEMENT SOFTWARE

Infra-red Imagery is different than normal imagery from a camera in the fact that it requires software optimization to ensure maximum definition for capturing information. The image enhancements that are featured in the Zenmuse XT were designed in partnership with FLIR and include Digital Detail Enhancement™ (DDE); Smart Scene Optimization™ (SSO), which enhances extremes in bi-modal scenes; Active Contrast Enhancement™ (ACE) that adjusts scene contrast relative to its temperature difference; and Information Based HEQ™ (IBHEQ) which compresses complex image data to create the best quality image.

FINGER TIP CONTROL

The Zenmuse XT gimbal combines with the DJI GO application, allowing the user full control over the cameras features such as:

  • Digital Zoom

  • Spot metering, temperature measurement at the mid-point

  • Single or interval shooting modes

  • Photo, video preview and download

  • Take photos while recording video

  • Various camera settings and parameters including:

    • Palette, also referred to as Look-up Table (LUT)

    • Scene, also referred to as Automatic Gain Correction (AGC)

    • Region of Interest (ROI)

    • Isotherm mode

SEAMLESS EFFICIENCY

 

The Zenmuse XT gimbal provides seamless integration with DJI Platforms such as the Inspire 1 and Matrice 100. Both platforms feature DJI’s integrated LightBridge technology which provides up to 3.1 miles (5km) of 720P video transmission range. These platforms also provide the user with five intelligent flight modes such as Point of Interest, Course and Home Lock, Waypoints, Follow Me and DJI SDK for third party applications.

INDUSTRIAL PLATFORMS

 

The Zenmuse XT combines with the customizable Matrice 100 platform, allowing for up to 35 minutes of flight time.* These extended flight times can be useful in large scale inspections and can also assist during search and rescue missions.

*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.

MAX FLIGHT TIME

*Maximum range in open areas under optimal conditions free of interference.
*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.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR ZENMUSE XT

Let us assist you in choosing the perfect setup for your application.

Using the three easy steps below you can configure the perfect Zenmuse XT powered by FLIR.

STEP 1: Select Performance (XT) or Radiometric Version (XTR)

 

  • Performance: Includes Isotherm and Spot Meter

 

  • Radiometric: Includes Isotherm, Spot Meter, and High Volume Temperature Measurement. 

Isotherm: The Tau 2 core performance configuration provides an “isotherm” feature in which portions of the scene exceeding a user-selectable threshold are mapped to different portions of the palette. The isotherm feature is most useful for palettes in which the bottom half is composed of gray shades and the upper half is composed of color shades (for example, yellow to orange to red).

Spot Meter: The Tau 2 core performance configuration provides temperature-measurement capability via a spot meter in the central 4×4 area. The spot meter value is readable via command. Additionally, two user-selectable options for on- screen display of spot-meter data are provided: a numeric value and/or a thermometer-style gauge.

High Volume Temperature Measurement:

  • Improved accuracy: typical performance on the order of +5 Co or 5% in high-gain state (varies slightly across the full operating temperature range).

  • Moveable / resizable spot-meter: coordinates user-selectable to any arbitrary location on the array.

  • Additional spot-meter data: spot-meter reports average, standard deviation, minimum, and maximum value.

STEP 2: Select a Refresh Rate – 9Hz or 30Hz

 

  • Although both refresh rates will work for various applications, the 30Hz refresh rate will appear smoother than the 9Hz. See video for reference.

  • The 30Hz refresh rate will bode well for applications pertaining to speed. 

  • The 9Hz is slightly less expensive than the 30Hz and may not be as smooth.

  • Export restrictions will apply to the 30Hz refresh rate. The 9Hz refresh rate can be exported outside the United States. 

The video above is NOT from the DJI Zenmuse XT, but from a camera with similar resolutions. The video is intended to demonstrate a comparison between slow refresh rate vs. a fast refresh rate. Actual quality will be higher.

STEP 3: Select a Resolution – 336 x 256 or 640 x 512

 

  • Both the 336 and 640 resolution will work well when viewing a subject or objects from a close distance.

  • The 640 resolution will produce a sharper image when viewing a subject or object from a further distance. Please see the video for a comparison. 

  • The 640 resolution will cost significantly higher than the 336 resolution. 

The video above is NOT from the DJI Zenmuse XT, but from a camera with similar resolutions. This video is intended to demonstrate a comparison between low resolution vs. high resolution. Actual quality will be higher.

STEP 4: Select a Lens – 6.8 mm (336 ONLY), 7.5 mm (640 ONLY), 9 mm, 13 mm, or 19 mm

  • Lens options are NOT interchangeable. The lens chosen will be fixed to the TAU 2 core. 

  • Lower Lens Size = Wider Field of View.

  • Higher Lens Size = Narrower Field of View.

  • A 6.8 mm lens on the 336 camera corresponds to a wide 49° field of view, whereas a 19 mm lens corresponds to a narrow 17 ° field of view.

  • A 7.5 mm lens on the 640 camera corresponds to a wide 90° field of view, whereas a 19 mm lens corresponds to a narrow 32° field of view.

  • The 336 avails a 4X digital zoom, and the 640 avails a 8X digital zoom.

The video above is NOT from the DJI Zenmuse XT. This video is intended to demonstrate a comparison between various lens options and field of views. Actual quality will be higher.
