7.5mm DJI FLIR Zenmuse XT Cameras
Sensing and Recording Heat
Heat can be seen — in extreme cases, the naked eye can see a desert mirage, heated air coming off a highway, or the exhaust from a jet plane’s engines. But in most cases, it’s invisible to humans. A thermal camera can see even low-level heat’s transference into the air. It can sense and record heat, even in darkness or through smoke. FLIR XT series cameras can measure and record the temperature of the heat they detect.
DJI FLIR XT Camera Applications
When mounted on a professional-grade flying platform, such as the DJI Matrice 100 or Matrice 600, UAV pilots or technicians can reach areas difficult or impossible to access by foot or vehicle. Law enforcement can watch in full darkness, capturing aerial night video without lights as the suspects’ bodies give off heat.
In firefighting, pilots can identify and zoom in on hot spots, helping to prevent injuries and flare-ups. Building inspectors can identify heat leaks. Search and rescue operations can fly over earthquake or explosion rubble, sensing heat plumes that identify possible survivors in need of rescue, and helping to direct deployment of rescue dogs.
Lens, Resolution Choices
Cameras are available with lens lengths of 6.8mm, 7.5 MM, 9mm, 13mm & 19mm. The 6.8mm is available in non-radiometric models, and the 7.5mm in radiometric models. Resolution, depending on the model, is 336x256 or 640x512.
