TS150 Tethered Station
The NM& TS150 Tether Station permits to power the UAV directly from an on-ground power source, providing unlimited flight time.
The NM& TS150 Captive Station was designed by Embention to directly supply power to the Drone from a ground power source, providing unlimited flight time. Tether Station uses an innovative ultralight cable to connect the NM&TS150 to the base station on the ground so the drone has access to a continuous power source during the operation.
Embedded Veronte Autopilot Technology
Tether Station for NM&TS150 drone includes Veronte Autopilot technology providing advanced system control. Apart from tether release system control, embedded Veronte autopilot monitors embedded sensors (current, temperature, power input…) predicting and detecting system failures and commanding safety procedure activation.By combining it with a Veronte Autopilot powered NM&TS150 drone is possible to install it in moving platforms. Tether station shares its position with the drone. In this way, the drone will move with the base station. This functionality enables tether installation on moving platforms: cars, boats… to be used as a surveillance system, for lightening…
Safer than Drone Systems
Being a leash system, it is more secure than drones. Once defined a safety area with a radius equal to the maximum height configured, and thanks to fibre reinforced cable, it is possible to guarantee that there will be no material or personal damages in the event of an accident.Veronte Autopilot technology together with sensors on the tether station provides advanced system safety.
During the operation, the system is continuously self-checking system status. Once a failure or a deviation is detected it automatically displays an alert to the operator in charge of monitoring and performs a fail-safe procedure.It is possible to customize fail-safe routines based on data from the onboard Veronte Autopilot unit or from ground side sensors. Being possible to configure the action to be performed depending on the severity of the failure detected.
Tether Station is independent on the installed payload. In this way it can be used with a wide range of payloads for various applications: cameras, lights, sensors, …Payload can be powered from the ground power system by using same tether cable used for drone power.
It makes possible to customize payload bay and use different payloads that may not be suitable for a standard drone due to high power consumption.
