Elistair launches Ligh-T V.4 compact tethering station
Elistair has launched Ligh-T V.4, the latest version of its compact tethering station for UAS, the company announced on 29 April.
The UAS tether system offers unlimited flight time to a wide range of commercial UAS, including DJI’s M200 V2, M200 V1, Inspire 1 and 2 and the Yuneec H920.
The system features a 230ft long micro-tether, which is equipped with a new dual mode tether management system, enabling smart motorised control of the micro-tether tension while allowing the user to wind and unwind manually, in case of power outage. Housed in a rugged cased with an open and accessible interface, the system is easily transportable. Unlimited data transfer is possible through its 10.5 g/m micro-tether.
The system is completed by the T-Monitor application that allows a full monitoring of the UAS tether station’s state during each flight.
The plug-and-fly tool ensures fast and safe surveillance, defence, public and private safety, incidents/natural disasters assessment and pop up telecommunication missions.
