INFRAPRO 100 – XT R 640 | Stability, Power and Safety!
INFRAPRO: Professional Thermographic Reports made easy. The new module which generates Reports and detailed Thermal analysis of hot spots on Solar Panels.
Available in the Analist 2017 CLOUD latest version: INFRAPRO, the new module for thermographic analysis. The Analist Group Complete Drone Solution for Thermographic Inspections comes as a complete workflow. The Drone with the FLIR camera which captures thermal images, now joins Analist CLOUD with INFRAPRO, able to produce a detailed report of the critical issues with temperatures. Suitable for photovoltaic panel inspection in the identification of Hot Spots, or the single cells with a malfunction or critical issues. .
The DJI Matrice 100 represents a versatile and safe choice: it is ready-to-fly, stable and simple to fly. It includes the flight control, propulsion system, GPS, DJI Lightbridge, dedicated remote controller and a rechargeable battery. The great advantage of the Matrice 100 is the possibility for it to be used for many operations: all you have to do is change the sensor mounted on board the Drone in only one click.
Add the extra battery compartment and you will get up to 30 minute flight time. This feature provides extra power to your platform as well as to all the other devices and accessories mounted on the UAV. The dual battery is an essential feature as it allows for actions impossible with only one battery; and to top it off you can fly more safely. You must bare in mind that flight time is influenced by weather conditions and payload.
IR + RGB Orthomosaic | With Analist 2017 CLOUD and Pix4Dmapper. Thermal Orthomosaic + RGB Orthomosaic!
The INFRAPRO 100 – XT R 640 is able to obtain the thermal orthomosaic as well as the RGB. The greatest advantage is to have all the necessary information in hand to carry out thermal inspections and visual inspections, to visually see such things as weeds, and trees obstructing the panels, as well as identifying hot spots.
Identify the hot spots with the utmost accuracy, and Generate your Orthophotos for a perfect match.
The Orthophotos provide the exact condition of the Solar farm and help identify the panels with critical issues.
Highly performing Radio controller – Control your DJI Matrice 100 from 5 Km away.
The DJI Matrice 100 is equipped with a control system that provides extraordinary performance features. The radius reaches up to a 5 km distance and allows you to fly the aircraft in total safety and stability following your flight mission plan on your PC, tablet or your mobile device. You will have all the parameters in hand: from altitude, and speed to battery life and so on.
DJI Go APP – Unique and stable flight experience!
How to fly a DJI Matrice 100? Simple, with the DJI Go APP: a unique stability experience, this FREE mission planning APP (for both iOs and Android) is developed directly by DJI. And what’s more, you may even develop your own flight planning APP, thanks to the SDK provided by DJI.

Point Clouds, Contour Lines | Profiles, Sections, Plano-altimetric Surveys.
The (IR + RGB) orthophoto geneartion is automatic with Pix4Dmapper and Analist 2017 CLOUD. Pix4Dmapper generates Point Clouds, RGB and IR Ortophotos directly from photos and videos from your flight. With Analist it is possible to import these Point Clouds and carry out Vertical and horizontal planimetric surveys, measure aereas and surfaces, distances, volumes and create contour lines, cross profiles and cross sections.
On board Cameras – Highest Quality and Technology.
The Solution includes the RGB Zenmuse X3 Camera and the Zenmuse XT radiometric Thermal Camera. The Zenmuse XT is equipped with a dedicated gimbal and a FLIR Thermal camera. It’s perfect not only for solar farm panels but also for other types of thermal analysis.
With the RGB X3 camera, with its dedicated gimbal you can take photos and record 4k videos, and you can perform visual surveys and orthomosaic generation.
INFRAPRO 100 – XT R 640: All the advantages. – The Complete and Professional Solution.
RGB and IR Orthophoto with Analist 2017 Cloud and Pix4Dmapper Software.
With the INFRAPRO 100 – XT R 640 you can acquire the IR and the RGB Orthomosaic. The greatest advantage is that you have all the necessary data to carry out thermal inspections as well visible inspections, such as for example the identification vegetation which obstructs one or more solar panels. The generation of the orthomosaic is automatic and direct with Pix4Dmapper and Analist.
Immediate Orthomosaic processing on the spot
Thee orthomosaic is generated rapidly immediately after the flight. This enable the use to immediately identify the critical panels providing the analysis of the entire farm. The generation of the orthomosaic is made easy, thanks to Pix4Dmapper and Analist 2017.
Difference between INFRAPRO 100 – XT R 640 and traditional techniques in terms of time/cost
Thermal Drone Inspections allow for time and cost saving with the benefit of the highest accuracy results. For a 2 hectares, 1 Megawatt farm 1 hour and 30 minutes are required with a Drone compared to the 2 days required with traditional methods. (30 minutes for the flights and 1 hour for the post-processing).
Automatic Flight Plan
The solution includes (if required) the whole software part and APP for the generation of the orthophoto and the creation of automatic flight plans. This way even the uninitiated will become autonomous and expert in no time without the need to undergo long and expensive training courses. Our solution is designed to help companies rapidly form new specialists and to be autonomous in dealing rapidly and successfully all those specialized operations for the thermal and visual inspections.
Cameras: Zenmuse XT R and X3
The solution includes an X3 RGB Camera and a Zenmuse XT R Thermal Camera. Both are provided with dedicated gimbals. The X3 Camera, with dedicated gimbal, enables for pictures and videos in 4k high definition and it can be used for visual inspections, photos, videos and also for the RGB orthophoto generation.
Speed in data acquisition
The INFRAPRO 100 – XT R 640 is three times faster during the acquisition of the RGB and IR because it uses frames from videos and not pictures. The acquisition from video, in fact, allows to reduce the times of acquisition and data processing, speeding up all the operations performed on site. The acquisition of the data to photos, instead, would require a slower flight, with consequent lengthening of the times and for the operations costs.
Wind Turbine and Solar Panels
Generally speaking solar farms are highly exposed to currents. This depends on their geographical location, but also on the fact that not having vegetation that can shield them from the currents. In these conditions it is important to have a highly efficient and safe aircraft like the DJI Matrice 100. Only with a reliable aircraft it is possible to complete the mission successfully. It is impossible to get consistent and usable data and with blurry images and unstable videos.
Point Clouds and plano-altimetric measurements with Analist
The generation of orthophotos ( RGB + IR ) is automatic thanks to Pix4Dmapper and Analist 2017 CLOUD. Pix4Dmapper generates Point Clouds, RGB and IR orthophotos automatically from photos or video . With Analist 2017 CLOUD you can import Point Clouds and carry out plano – altimetric surveys, areas, distances, volumes and obtain contour lines, profiles and cross sections.
