The 6X Thermal extends the 6X Multispectral with the additional of a thermal sensor. This replaces one of the global shutters on the sensor. For more information about the 6X and the 6X Thermal, review our spec sheet .
The spectral bands of the 6X are:
Blue: 475 nm x 30 nm
Green: 550 nm x 20 nm
Red: 670 nm x 30 nm
Red Edge: 715 nm x 10 nm
NIR: 840 nm x 20 nm
It is possible to customize the spectral bands of the 6X, please contact our Sales Team for more information
The 6X is compatible with DJI Inspire and Matrice series. The 6X can also support integration with MAVLink, including Pixhawk.
You can change the operating settings of the 6X by accessing the camera control and settings web page. It is possible to configure imager settings like image alignment, vignetting correction, multipage TIFFs, and RGB color correction. For further information, please view the. 6X user manual .
The 6X is offered with a companion Incident Light Sensor (ILS). The light sensor data is stored in the XMP and EXIF tags of taken images. Post processing will correct the multispectral images for the ambient color condition.
FieldAgent iOS App allows users to plan and fly missions with compatible drones. To learn more, view
our user guide
for FieldAgent Mobile.
6X data can be imported into FieldAgent via our Desktop application. For more information on how to import and view your data in FieldAgent, view this support article .
The imagery from the 6X is compatible with all standard photogrammetry tools such as Pix4D, Agisoft, QGIS, and ArcGIS. For now, some post processing is required for Agisoft, QGIS and ArcGIS. Contact our Support team for more information.
Standard configurations for DJI systems are equipped with a GPS module and operate in GPS overlap mode, which will trigger the camera as needed to provide the desired amount of image overlap. Desired overlap can be changed in the configurations settings via a cabled connection to the webpage.
Non-DJI and other systems can be triggered manually through the web page, through a discrete I/O pin, periodic time, GPS overlap, or MAVLink/Pixhawk trigger commands. Regardless of the triggering mechanism, photos from all six sensors will have synchronized capture.
Expansion port provides 5V and 3.3V power outputs, 2X 3.3V UARTs, GPS pulse per second time synchronization, shutter output synchronization, trigger input, and battery power input. For further information, please view the 6X user manual .
