PowerVision Tech has released its new industrial drone system — PowerVision True Unmanned Aerial Solution. The solution integrates the PowerVision Dock, PowerEgg X 8K drone and the PowerVision Cloud web-based software platform. This solution can be used widely across countless applications, such as powerline inspections, environmental compliance, O&G asset inspections, facility security, GIS, surveying, and mapping.
The PowerVision True Unmanned Aerial Solution weighs 15.8kg in a 570×400×250mm form factor. This compact design allows the entire solution to be deployed by a single person, without special tools or equipment. Powered by artificial intelligence, the PowerVision True Unmanned Aerial System streamlines the drone’s takeoff, flight, dynamic mission and return to the charging dock autonomously. A single installed solution can cover an area with a radius of 3.1 miles (5km). Multiple units can be connected and installed in an area to cover large-scale infrastructure projects or assets.
To meet the requirements for outdoor operations, PowerVision Dock is IP55-rated to resist dust and water in different environments. With the help of an intelligent temperature control system, it can still perform at an ambient temperature between 20℃ and 45℃. The onboard intelligent system monitors real-time temperatures, precipitation and wind to secure operational safety.
The PowerEgg X 8K uses a 1/2-inch CMOS sensor to capture 48-megapixel photos and 8K UHD videos, all with 4x lossless zoom. Optimisations to the propellers, ESC, and the entire system have been made to achieve a 34-minute flight time. PowerEgg X 8K supports dual-band communication (2.4/5.8GHz), interference detection and avoidance, dynamic frequency switching, anti-disturbance and real-time FHD image transmission with a max transmission distance of 7.5miles(12km). The PowerEgg X 8K can withstand the wind up to Level 7 on the Beaufort Scale (Near Gale) and fly in adverse weather conditions. A newly designed supplementary landing light automatically triggers under low light conditions to secure the take-off and landing.
In order to meet the special demands for the power industry, the PowerVision True Unmanned Aerial Solution also supports centimetre-level positioning, solar power supply and transmission extension antennas.
