WiBotic announces new wireless power system for DJI Matrice 200 and 210 drones

WiBotic, which provides wireless charging and power optimization platforms for the robotics industry, has announced a new wireless power system for the DJI Matrice 200 (M200) and DJI Matrice 210 (M210) drones.

The WiBotic wireless power system enables fully autonomous charging of UAS, allowing UAS to be on constant standby, or fly repeatedly without the need for human or mechanical battery swapping.

The WiBotic wireless power system for the DJI M200 and M210 includes both ground-based transmitter components and onboard charging components. For companies that want a “completely turnkey solution,” the system is also compatible with the (additional) WiBotic PowerPad.

WiBotic says that the combination of these DJI UAS with the WiBotic wireless power system is ideal for a wide variety of applications, including long-term persistent security and defense surveillance, at-the- ready search and rescue missions, and methane leak detection at oil well sites, to name a few.

“Pairing our WiBotic wireless power system with these new DJI models creates a real power couple for corporations,” says Ben Waters, CEO of WiBotic. “Countless commercial and defense drone applications are greatly enhanced by the use of wireless power and we make it really simple to make that happen.”

The entire charging process can be remotely monitored and controlled for the WiBotic wireless power platforms using software, APIs and cloud-based tools to make sure that UAS charge as quickly as possible when needed, or more slowly when the next scheduled flight is hours away. This improves overall battery lifespan and maximizes fleet uptime.

The WiBotic PowerPad, which is a UAS landing pad that contains the transmitter components, also protects against moisture, dirt and corrosion; all of which can impact outdoor charging stations over time.

For quick installation, the WiBotic wireless power system for DJI M200 and M210 also includes mounting equipment. The entire system can be up and running in 10 minutes when used with the WiBotic PowerPad.

Standard DJI M200 and M210 batteries can be fully charged in about two hours with the WiBotic wireless power system. Built-in fleet support allows one UAS to move between multiple wireless power stations, and also enables several UAS to share a network of stations at different times.

​These wireless power stations can be used with a variety of UAS brands, as well as inside drone hangars or garages.
