UNLOCK THE POSSIBILITIES OF SIGHT

Integrated Thermal Camera

The camera on the DJI Zenmuse XT is developed by FLIR. It provides high-sensitivity (50mK) thermal imaging at 640/30 fps or 336/30 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.

Performance Model

Quickly Visualize Temperature Differences
Performance model cameras display thermal imagery in real time while showing a temperature estimate at the center of the camera view, so users can quickly identify temperature differences.
Engineered for:Emergency Responders

Radiometric Model

Capture Detailed Temperature Data
The Radiometric model allows users to tap any pixel for accurate temperature measurements or select an area to display average, highest, and lowest temperatures within the selection.
Engineered for:Inspectors

Applications

See the unseen. FLIR cameras reveal details invisible to the naked eye by making subtle differences in temperature visible. This new view on the world can reveal when equipment or buildings are damaged, the location of lost people and much more.

Image Enhancement Software

Infra-red imagery requires optimization to ensure maximum definition for capturing information. The Zenmuse XT features a suite of image enhancements designed by FLIR including 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.
