DJI M30T Drone Use in Solar Power Plants

DJI M30T Drone Use in Solar Power Plants is an all-weather and portable solar power plants inspection drone with thermal imager and 48 MP 4K camera, 16x zoom.
The DJI Matrice 30T is a portable all-weather commercial drone with a maximum flight time of 41 minutes, a flight altitude of up to 7000 meters and a waterproof enclosure with an IP55 rating. The DJI Matrice 30T drone has 4K video capability, a 48 mega pixel camera with 16x zoom, a thermal camera with a resolution of 640×512 pixels, a frame rate of 30 Hz, a laser range finder, a maximum horizontal flight speed (83 km/h) to measure the distance to observation or targeting objects.
It consists of unique hardware that allows you to take inspection efficiency to a new level in areas such as firefighting, search and rescue, inspection of power lines and main pipelines, wells, special operations, law enforcement, solar power plant inspection, aerial thermography. Matrice 30(T) professional drones pack portability and power without sacrificing image quality or functionality.

Excellent Flight Performance with M30T

The perfect combination of power and portability to increase the efficiency of thermographic inspection of solar power plants;

  • Maximum flight time: 41 minutes
  • Maximum permissible wind: 15 m/s
  • Maximum speed 23 m/s

The M30 series is the only commercial drone of its kind with an ultra-compact and foldable design that allows it to easily pack, transport and deploy in the shortest possible time.
The M30 series features maximum protection against water and dust ingress. The Matrice 30 is IP55 rated, allowing you to operate the drone in adverse weather conditions and temperatures between -20°C and 50°C.

Thermal Inspection of Solar Power Plants with M30T

The drones of the M30 series, like the Matrice 300 RTK, are equipped with a 360-degree sensory visualization system. Dual vision and ToF sensors are also placed on the underside of the drone, keeping it and the PV inspection safe.
The overall design of the Matrice 30 has been thought out down to the smallest detail. A compact drone with a folding arm mechanism that allows you to easily carry the M30T Drone for any solar power plant inspection will be able to easily inspect the PV plant
Matrice 30 series drones are equipped with a range of professional cameras. The M30 Series combines wide-angle, zoom and thermal cameras (M30T only) with laser rangefinders that can capture the aerial inspection you need, when you need it. By inspecting the area from the air, you can find faulty cells in solar panels. A drone with a thermal camera for solar panel inspections will help to conduct the thermographic inspection process more efficiently and accurately determine the distance to the panels on the ground.
Regular inspection of solar panels using drones equipped with thermal cameras helps to detect defects in the panels, to ensure efficient operation of solar power plants, to find and fix malfunctions.
MapperX M30T works 100% compatible with the drone, thermal inspection images taken with the M30T are quickly converted into orthophoto maps with MapperX and thermal inspection data are reported in an understandable way at world standards.
MapperX develops strategies that improve the PV plant efficiency of its customers with thermal drone-assisted solar power plant surveys. Visit the website to learn more about “Thermal Drone
