What to learn about the wider DJI Agras household
The DJI Agras T20P originates from the wider portfolio of DJI Agras items, which are a series of agricultural-minded aerial items. Together, the DJI Agras items produce an environment of aerial tech that can assist enhance spraying of pesticides or fertilizer, collect and examine aerial information, and much better handling operations.
The Agras brand name initially came onto the scene in 2015, and now consists of other T-series farming drones, plus MG-series farming drones, the Mavic 3 Multispectral drone, along with software consisting of DJI Terra and DJI SmartFarm App.
The DJI SmartFarm Web is a quite crucial piece of farmland details management software application that can quickly create high-definition pictures of farmland and orchards, along with examine crop development with overall clearness (it’s developed to choose the Mavic 3 Multispectral). In action to commentary that it’s simple to get aerial information however hard to in fact handle it, the DJI SmartFarm App permits more-convenient management of digitalized farming details– and for that reason offering assistance for making automated farming equipment operations more efficient.
DJI Agras T20P vs. Agras T40 drone
The Agras T20P was very first launched in November 2021 together with the Agras T40, which has actually long been readily available globally. That’s a major spraying drone, with a dispersing capability of 50 kg and a spraying capability of 40 kg, which indicates it might– in theory– spread 1.5 lots of urea or spray pesticides on a 320-acre field in an hour.
That drone begins at $20,000 for the drone just, and is likewise frequently offered with a ready-to-fly set for more than $26,000.
In basic, it’s a far bigger and more effective drone than the Agras T20. Here’s a contrast of the 2:
|Agras T20||Agras T 40|
|Overall weight (without battery)||21.1 kg||38 kg|
|Max launch weight (at sea level)||42.6 kg|| 90 kg (for spraying)
101 kg (for dispersing)
|Airframe max diagonal wheelbase||1883 mm||2184 mm|
|Max wind resistance||8 m/s||6 m/s|
|Making sterile system operating payload (complete)||20 kg||40 kg|
|Max circulation rate|| 3.6 L/min (with SX11001VS nozzle)
