The XT2 can be mounted onto any M200 Series drone as well as the Matrice 600 Pro. Please note that the XT2 will lack certain intelligent features like Heat Track and Quick Track when flown on a Matrice 600 Pro drone.
Currently, DJI offers 12 different models of XT2 cameras that vary with different lens sizes, resolutions and thermal frame rates. Please refer to the below chart for the complete list of models:
The lenses of the XT2 thermal and visual cameras cannot be replaced, and therefore we recommend consulting with our network of DJI Enterprise re-sellers to determine which lens best suits your needs before purchasing.
Due to the XT2’s dual sensor design, DJI built in two SD card slots. One stores typical photo and video formats while the other is reserved for thermal video data, which stores the full radiometric data from FLIR’s thermal sensor, enabling a variety of post-processing workflows.
The flight time will adjust based on a wide range of environmental factors. To help you estimate your flight times, we have provided reference figures of max flight times when flying in optimal conditions.
1. Besides MOV and MP4, the XT2 now allows video formats in TIFF SEQ and SEQ. Additionally, this feature allows much more post production space and temperature analysis from videos. 2. With an added visual camera, you can now record visual and thermal images at the same time. 3. Additionally, because of the dual camera, you can also overlay visual images on top of thermal images simultaneously.
In addition to geothermal detection, fire protection, and forest inspections, the Zenmuse XT2 can also be used for electrical inspections, oil and gas inspections, as well as building inspections etc.
Yes. All XT2 models are able to detect the highest and lowest temperature points. The XT2 is also able to detect temperatures at any point on the screen, including high temperature alerts
SEQ (RAW) format allows users to do post production on the videos, such as adjusting colour settings or editing the video on each frame.
To record RAW videos in TIFF SEQ and SEQ formats, insert both Micro-SD card in the slots and RAW videos will be stored in Micro-SD card 2, otherwise you can only insert the Micro-SD card in slot 1. Keep in mind that the XT2 supports SD cards with storage spaces of up to 128GB and reaches UHS-3 level or above.
Currently, the Zenmuse XT2 can only be used on the DJI Pilot App with the M200 Series and M600 Pro drones.
No. The Zenmuse XT2 lens is integrated with the original lens module and it does not support a lens filter.
Yes. There are two 32GB Micro-SD cards in the pack.
This is an exclusive image format from FLIR. It contains temperature information in each pixel and can be analysed by FLIR Tools. RJPEG images can also be viewed and processed as with JPEG images.
You can use MSX Offset in the DJI Pilot App to adjust the alignment.
The XT2 has a more powerful processing module than the XT1 hence colours of the thermal images appear to have more detail and better sharpness when showing different temperatures.
The visual lens supports 4K video recording however the thermal lens does not.
1. The reflection of objects on metal surfaces will result in lower temperature detection than the true value. 2. The background temperature will also affect temperature detection. It will be minor in clear weather conditions but greater in cloudy or cold weather. 3.The humidity and temperature of the air. 4.The thickness of the air; thicker air results in less accurate detection results.
The Zenmuse XT2 has a focal length of 9mm, 13mm, 19mm and 25mm thermal lens. Each of them is equipped with an 8mm visual lens.
There are two kinds of working frequencies of the lens; 9Hz and 30Hz.
Yes they do.
To help you understand the character references, we will use the ZXT2A19SR model as an example: 1. ZXT2: refers to the Zenmuse XT 2. 2. A: refers to a lens with a resolution of 640*512. B: refers to a lens with a resolution of 336*256. 3. 19: refers to a lens with a 19mm focal length. 4. S: indicates a lens with 9Hz working frequency. 5. R: refers regional temperature detection.”
This option will split the video downlink into two parts; one is for the thermal view, and the other is for the visual view. The thermal part will be kept as the original size whereas the visual part is resized and then displayed accordingly.
The Zenmuse XT2 will be more sensitive to temperature difference in High Gain mode, but can only work within a narrow temperature range. Similarly, the opposite takes effect in Low Gain mode. In High Gain mode: 1. The detectable temperature range with a resolution of 640*512 is as follows: -25℃ to +135℃; 2. The detectable range with a resolution of 336*256 is as follows: -25℃ to +100℃; In Low Gain mode: All lenses can detect temperature from -40℃ to +550℃.
Burst Shooting mode has been added.
They represent three different levels of sharpness of the object’s profile and pattern. When the MSX level is set to low, the object’s profile and pattern will appear less visible.
FFC stands for Flat-Field Calibration. It enables the image scene to be clear for observing the temperature variation. The FFC can be turned off in the settings menu and triggered manually.
You can download the latest XT2 firmware on the DJI official website and store it into a formatted Micro-SD card. Insert the Micro-SD card into any one of the card slots of the XT2 camera, and then mount the camera onto the M200 or M600 Pro drone. Then power on the drone to start the upgrade. Please refer to our tutorial videos above for more details.
Heat Track: Tap on the Heat Track button and the XT2 will start tracking the hottest point in live view. Spotlight: With this feature, the XT2 can track an object based on visible light. PIP function: the live view function can be split into two parts (thermal and visible) and the thermal image can also be integrated at the center of the visual image.
1. The aperture of Infrared Camera is bigger and the scale of hyper-focal distance is larger;
2. The thermal imaging of Infrared Camera can clearly distinguish targets at night.
The lens of the Zenmuse XT is prime lens, and the fixed focus is infinity.
The camera is able to support digital zoom.
The aperture and shutter cannot be adjusted.
Yes, the camera is able to take TIFF images and video recording simultaneously.
No, Zenmuse XT’s camera and lens are integrated.
Yes, the camera will come with a 16GB Micro-SD card, it can supports the FAT format Micro-SD card with storage volume up to 32GB.
Smart Scene Optimisation, it is similar to sensitometry. After strating, it can better distinguish the temperature difference.
Digital Detail Enhancement, it can increase the image detail and it is similar to acuteness that enhance the image’s sharpness.
The Infrared Camera is limited to the technical issues and costing, therefore the lens’ resolution of 640 × 512 has already situated in the industry-leading position.
No, it does not.
Its video format is MP4.
Palette provides different colour choices for different applications. Users can choose the appropriate colour mode according to their demands.
Region Growth Algorithm, user can adjust the mode to remove the sky part (low temperature) in the scene to enable the scene concentrates on the objects on the ground.
Isotherm Mode provides three threshold values that enable user to observe the areas with different temperatures clearly. User can define the three threshold values to modify the isothermal lines and the temperature difference will be easier to be observed in different colours.
TIFF is a computer file format, called Tagged Image File Format, and the file extension is TIF or TIFF. TIFF (Tag Image File Format) is a kind of graphic format in Macintosh. Its graphic format is complex and TIFF can store more information.
Tiff format image can be edited in PhotoShop, Lightroom and other professinal softwares, or use MATLAB to process the image’s data.
The TIFF format images will store 14-bit raw data, the temperature can be obtained by multiplying a coefficient to this data.
The temperature measurement range of:
1.High Gain Mode: -40℃ to +160℃
2.Low Gain Mode: -40℃ to +550℃
In another word, the Low Gain Mode has wider measurement range, but lower accuracy than the High Gain Mode.
This image format corresponds to the software FLIR Tools (produced by FLIR Company), which allows the original temperature information in the R-JPEG image to be analysed. Meanwhile, the R-JPEG images can also be viewed as the usual JPEG format images.

1. The object’s reflectivity, as the reflective metal surface has high reflectivity that will cause lower measured temperature;
2. The temperature of the radiation background, the influence will be small if there is no clouds, otherwise it will bring great influence in temperature measurement.
3. The influence from the air factors including temperature and humidity. The higher these two factors, the easier to affect the temperature measurement of the object and lead to low accuracy.
4. The thickness of the air, also the distance from the camera to the measured object. The further the distance, the greater the influence from the air, and less the accuracy of the measurement.
The Zenmuse XT camera can be used with the Matrice 200 Series, but will require a gimbal adaptor and some versions of the Zenmuse XT camera need to be upgraded.
