1. Ongoing Operations in Inclement Weather
During the wet season, powerline inspection with traditional methods can be hazardous. When a powerline emergency occurs during heavy rains, drones such as DJI Matrice 300 RTK will be able to tackle the high-rise inspection under the downpour easily. Thanks to the IP45-rated waterproofing, rain water will not stop this beast of a drone from flying and operating as usual.
2. Improved Worker’s Safety
Traditionally, inspection workers used to climb up the electricity pylon to check for issues on the powerlines. With the flying and live-view attributes of DJI Matrice 300 RTK, inspection workers are no longer needed to risk their lives climbing up electricity pylons to perform inspection. This allows inspection workers to stay safe on the ground while operating a drone to scan and record the situation up high.
3. Advanced data transmission & connection
The magnetic fields generated from the live powerlines may disrupt the connection between the drone and the remote controller. However, the improved systems in Matrice 300 RTK that includes OcuSync Enterprise and AES-256 Encryption enables the connection and transmission of data to be stable in high-interference spots.
4. Longer flights, smooth workflow
Matrice 300 RTK utilises the convenience that TB60 Intelligent Flight Battery provides. Besides the impeccable flight time, the battery system is cleverly designed for “F1 pitstop -like” experience. How? The battery can be easily swapped in with a fresh one when it’s low without restarting the drone’s ongoing task; keeping the flow and reducing downtime.
DJI Zenmuse H20T is a powerful payload that is loaded with 4 distinct sensors; dedicated to the DJI Matrice 300 RTK. The H20T payload is able to generate thermal vision, which is a handy tool for powerline inspection work.
It can easily and accurately locate damages on the photovoltaic systems. Heat is usually generated at damaged areas which have higher resistance. Hence, thermal vision from this payload is the most reliable scan that can be used to detect defects or damages.
Besides, with a payload such as Zenmuse H20T, the drone pilot will be able to accurately measure the distance between powerlines and trees. This allows safer flight to avoid the drone from flying too close to the powerlines by keeping a safe distance.
Furthermore, H20T payload has 1 Zoom RGB camera and 1 Wide RGB camera. This provides the drone to be able to take clear close-up recording from a safe distance.
Therefore, the combination of different sensors of DJI Zenmuse H20T and the powerful mobility of DJI Matrice 300 RTK made the whole package a dream tool for inspectors.
6. Smart Controller
Matrice 300 RTK comes with a fully integrated touch screen on the controller. The level of control it provides is simply amazing and user-friendly, making the whole process of controlling the drone to perform inspection to be a breeze.
7. Silent Workflow
The Matrice 300 RTK is much quieter than its previous generation. This allows them to work without attracting unwanted attention from passers-by or disturbing the nearby residences or the public.
