The following will give you the key information about the DJI Matrice 30(T) series drones to learn more about it.

Drone

Lightweight, reliable and easy to deploy, the all-new DJI Matrice 30 series is designed for commercial use in human applications such as law enforcement, search and rescue, firefighting, power line/ pipeline and well inspection. M30 series was developed from scratch, however, in order to fully realize the potential put for this series, the developer has turned its attention to the two top models of drones own production – a cinematic Mavic 3 and commercial Matrice 300 RTK, where during the painstaking work DJI engineers managed to fit into a new portable housing, the lion’s share of potential M300RTK. At the same time, the developer notes that the Matrice 30 series is not implemented to replace the unique Matrice 300 RTK, but only in addition to it.

Lightweight and portable

The M30 series is the only commercial platform of its kind with an ultra-compact and foldable design that allows corporate users to easily pack, carry and deploy a drone in the shortest possible time. In practice, the time from the start of deployment to launch takes less than 1 minute.

Powerful flight performance

Using the Matrice 30 drone series as an example, the developer has clearly demonstrated how a balance between power and portability can provide greater efficiency:

An all-weather solution

The M30 series has received optimum IP55 protection against water and dust ingress. The drone can easily withstand adverse weather conditions and temperatures ranging from -20°C~50°C.

Safety and Reliability

The M30 series drones, like their big brother Matrice 300 RTK, are equipped with a 360-degree sensor system for visualizing the world around them. A complex of optical and ToF sensors located on all six sides of the drone allows the output to provide the best safety in every mission. In addition, the developer has equipped the drone with a built-in ADS-B receiver, which provides timely warning of any aircraft in close proximity to the piloting area.

Redundancy of key systems

To ensure maximum flight safety and reliability, the Matrice 30 Series has a wide range of redundant systems and sensors that include:
Learn more about the drone’s redundant systems on the developer’s website.

DJI O3 Enterprise

To significantly improve the quality of video streaming, the developer has equipped the M30 series with a more interference-resistant OcuSync 3 Enterprise video transmission system, working in tandem with four high-performance built-in antennas. This approach, even in harsh environments, allowed not only smooth switching between input channels, but also the transmission of the video stream in 3-channel mode in FHD quality.

Multifunctional camera system

In developing the camera system, the developer did not reinvent the wheel, but used the proven M20T (weight: 828g) multifunctional camera installed on Matrice 300RTK machines, which was subsequently reduced to the required size while maintaining the same performance and eventually got the name – M30(T) (M30T weight: 320g). So, the Matrice 30 series drones can be equipped with one of the two possible cameras without the possibility of quick replacement/upgrade:

  1. DJI M30 – the camera built into the 3-axis mechanical suspension has three sensors based on which are implemented: a wide-angle camera, a zoom camera and a laser rangefinder.
  2. DJI M30T – the camera built into the 3-axis mechanical suspension has four sensors based on which the wide-angle camera, zoom camera, laser rangefinder and thermal imager are implemented.

Key features of the camera system:

Wide-angle camera.

Zoom camera

Thermal camera

Laser rangefinder

FPV camera

To realize more effective control of the drone equipped with a FPV camera, optimized to work in low light conditions. The developer notes that the ground and the horizon line will be clearly visible even at night. According to the specification FPV camera provides shooting in FHD resolution at 30 frames per second, with a viewing angle of 161 °.

Smart Low-Light Photo

To ensure the best possible light sensitivity in low-light conditions, the developer has added a Smart Low-Light Photo mode to the RGB camera functionality, allowing you to capture bright and clear images even at night.

200x Hybrid Zoom

The zoom potential of the camera deserves special attention. A lossless 16x optical zoom is available to the operator. However, if for some reason this is not enough, the camera system also offers a 200x digital zoom, which greatly expands the Matrice 30 (T).

IR Shooting

Search and rescue, fire detection at a distance – this is all the domain of the high-resolution infrared module built into the multifunctional camera, allowing in the end a significant gain in time, which in some cases can cost lives.

Laser rangefinder

Closing the camera system’s potential is the high-precision laser rangefinder, which, through advanced sensor fusion algorithms, allows the operator to quickly obtain the coordinates of the selected object from a distance of up to 1,200 meters.

TB30 Intelligent Flight Battery

The TB30 Intelligent Flight Battery is a smart flight battery implemented to power the Matrice 30 (T) series drones with high efficiency. Each battery supports a self-heating function for operation in sub-zero temperatures, a hot-swap function to ensure quick start-up immediately after landing, and 400 charge cycles during which their claimed efficient operation is ensured.

Intelligent Battery Station

The BS30 Intelligent Flight Battery is a smart, portable solution with multiple charging modes designed to meet the needs of corporate customers. Capable of charging four pairs of TB30 Intelligent Flight Batteries and one pair of DJI RC Plus remote-control batteries. Each pair is charged in turn, noting that it only takes 30 minutes to charge one pair from 20 to 90%.

The list of key features of the updated software includes:

Updated interface

The developer notes that they have markedly improved the functionality of the interface in order to provide a more responsive interaction with the UAV. For example, access to the controls of the drone and payload is now a single tap. Also, practice has shown that the intuitive presentation of flight details and navigation information has improved the quality and efficiency of piloting.

Ergonomic design

The developer notes that the Pilot 2 software is as compatible as possible with the DJI RC Plus. Even the virtual and customizable buttons are now within intuitive reach and allow you to quickly interact with hot options such as adjusting the camera view and resetting pinpoints.

Preflight Checklist

The pre-flight checklist has also been redesigned. Now all the key information about the drone’s safety systems, as well as a number of key settings, will be available in a single sheet, allowing you to quickly determine the current health of the UAV and get on with the mission without delay.

Navigation Display

For proper safety and comprehensive flight awareness, an optimized interface now displays the takeoff location, PinPoint coordinates recorded and nearby obstacles side-by-side.

Alerts

The developer also revised the operation of system alerts, resulting in improved overall visualization, resulting in timely and progressive display of alerts as events unfold.

DJI FlightHub 2

The next announced component of DJI’s enterprise drone ecosystem is the second generation of the versatile cloud-based platform for the comprehensive management of drone fleet operations – FlightHub 2. Now, in addition to the ability to receive live telemetry from each drone involved in a mission, view up to four video streams simultaneously in real time, and coordinate and manage the entire workflow online, the developer has added the following features:

2.5D terrain map

FlightHub 2 offers a 2.5D base map for quick terrain exploration, one-touch panorama synchronization for a quick overview of the terrain and a cloud map for quick RGB or infrared display.

Live Mission Broadcasting

FlightHub 2 allows you to connect multiple users to one or more drone operations simultaneously and keep teams up-to-date with high resolution, low latency live streaming.

The following will give you a look at the DJI Dock’s key information to learn more about the product.

Full Cloud Computing Control

The Dock is fully compatible with FlightHub 2, allowing you to use all of DJI Dock’s features directly from the cloud. Plan missions, create and edit flight paths, and view photos, videos, maps, and geo-tagged panoramas collected by your drone park. All collected data can be automatically downloaded and saved for later use.

Online Awareness

The DJI docking station is equipped with a built-in wide-angle surveillance camera, so corporate users can monitor their surroundings online in high resolution at any time, so that they are always aware of the current status of the docking station and drone.

Operation and maintenance

The operator can monitor the current status of both the docking stations and the DJI drones themselves remotely from the cloud, allowing for timely maintenance, thus ensuring a high level of responsiveness and maximum operational safety. Plus, the docking station itself is built on a modular design of the main components, which greatly simplifies its maintenance.

Fast charging

Thanks to the built-in TEC air conditioning system, which intelligently cools the drone’s batteries, the developer was able to achieve an impressively fast battery charge from 10 to 90% in just 25 minutes.

A powerful all-weather solution

The developer has made sure that the docking station works continuously at any time of the day or night, regardless of weather conditions. In particular, the following features contributed to this potential:

  1. Sand and dust protection: IP55
  2. Temperature working range: -35℃ to 50℃
  3. Overvoltage protection: 40kA
  4. Max run time on built-in backup battery: 5 hours
  5. Active temperature control to ensure fast charging of drone batteries
  6. Maintenance interval: 6 months

Broad coverage

The overall capability of the docking station and drones is without exaggeration worthy of respect. A fully charged M30 can stay in the air for up to 40 minutes and perform monitoring missions up to 7 kilometers from the docking station.

Easy installation

The DJI docking station weighs less than 100 kg and takes up less than 1 square meter of space. Installation requires fixation on the ground, access to a power source and internet. Launch and setup is done in minutes with a single DJI RC Plus remote control.

Modular maintenance

The developer notes that thanks to the modular design of the main components, maintenance of the docking station will not take much time.

Hardware

DJI Dock is equipped with highly integrated hardware that enhances the functionality of the system:

  1. Wide-angle security camera
  2. Integrated weather station
  3. Built-in omni-directional antenna
  4. RTC module
  5. Expansion slot for peripheral calculations

Peripheral Computing

DJI docking stations include so-called peripheral computing expansion slots that allow you to perform media pre-processing and more to further improve performance.

Private deployment

The Cloud API opens up docking station functionality to developers and system integrators who can set up their own private server. Based on standard protocols such as MQTT, HTTPS, and Websocket, DJI Cloud API sufficiently abstracts the feature set and isolates the complex logic of hardware operations in the drone, allowing our developers to focus on their business without worrying about flight logic. Furthermore, the DJI Cloud API can adapt to any network as long as the DJI Pilot2 or DJI Dock is allowed access to a third-party platform server.

Notes

  1. The maximum range of 7 km has been achieved with no transmission or signal interference and wind speed <4 m/s, with a flight speed of 15 m/s and a system reserve of 20% battery charge as a safety buffer for landing.
  2. A fast charge in 25 minutes was achieved at an ambient air temperature of 25℃. It follows that as the temperature rises, the battery cooling time will increase, which will increase the downtime accordingly.
  3. The AC overvoltage protection capacity is 40 kA (8/20 μs waveform) and meets the protection levels of EN/IEC 61643-11 TYPE 2. The RJ45 surge protection capacity is 1.5 kA (8/20 µs waveform). They correspond to CATEGORY C level of protection according to EN/IEC 61643-21. The ability to protect against overvoltage depends on the capacity and reliability of the grounding. To minimize the risk of voltage surges, make sure grounding is done properly during installation.
  4. Each DJI docking station has a built-in backup battery that can provide power for 5 hours and ensure that the drone can safely return and land in the event of a power outage.
  5. Depending on environmental conditions and frequency of operations, maintenance of the DJI Dock is recommended for at least 6 months.
  6. The drone can take off and land in wind speeds up to 12 m/s.
  7. The result of the maximum flight time of 40 minutes was achieved in windless conditions, with a horizontal flight speed of 36 km/h. It is worth considering that the actual flight time may vary depending on the environment, flight mode and accessories.

The DJI Dock is only compatible with the M30 Dock version (Dock version) and M30T Dock version (Dock version) drones. Regular M30 series drones are not compatible with the dock, nor can they be converted to it. This is because the M30 (T) Dock version drones have slight body differences to ensure dock compatibility. When you purchase the DJI Dock, the M30 Dock version or the M30T Dock version will also be included.
Yes, it is supported. The M30 series drones are equipped with the Drone Beam Lock feature. If any of the drone’s beams have not been properly locked, the mobile app will issue a warning prohibiting takeoff.

With the BS30 Intelligent Battery Station, it will take about 50 minutes to fully charge the two TB30 Intelligent Flight batteries, about 40 minutes to charge to 90%, and only about 30 minutes to charge from 20% to 90%
TB30 Intelligent Flight batteries can operate in ambient temperatures ranging from -20°C to 50°C. However, it should be understood that operating at low temperatures will shorten battery life. Please plan your flight time appropriately. To ensure optimal battery performance, it is recommended to keep the battery temperature above 18°C or to warm the battery to 18°C using the self-heating function (the takeoff restriction will be triggered automatically if the battery temperature is below 10°C).
The TB30 Intelligent Flight Battery has a capacity of 131.6-watt hours. This issue requires approval by authorized airline personnel. Please follow local airline regulations if you plan to fly with batteries.
Prolonged storage of a fully charged lithium battery greatly reduces its life. To ensure safe storage and extend battery life, a fully charged battery will automatically activate its self-discharge function and discharge to about 60%. During the auto-discharge process, the battery will generate some heat, which is normal.

Battery Station

Remote control

At the time of release, the DJI RC Plus remote control is only compatible with the M30 series drones. However, it will support other corporate UAV models in the future.
