Flyability has unveiled the Elios 2 – a new coalition tolerant drone ideal for indoor inspection, helping you access hard-to-reach and dangerous areas safely and quickly.
This new aircraft builds on the success of the first Elios, boasting further intelligent flight handling and improved data-collection capabilities to help you make critical maintenance and certification decisions.
The Elios 2 also brings to market many other features including a thermal camera, shockproof payload; Full HD live video feedback, distance lock, 2D measurements, 3D modelling, a modular design for easy maintenance and a completely redesigned software suite that streamlines data management for planning to report.
Flyability has reinvented collision-tolerance transforming a formerly passive mechanical protection design into active intelligence built into the flight controller and motors of the Elios 2. Complemented by seven vision stability sensors pointing in all directions to provide GPS-free stabilisation, Elios 2 makes indoor airborne inspection accessible to everyone.
With its 4K camera optimised for rendering images with a resolution of 0.18mm/px at 30cm, Elios 2 provides the level of detail professional inspectors would get by standing at an arm’s length of objects of scrutiny.
The Elios 2, which has a maximum flight time of up to 10 minutes, also features the most robust and intelligent lighting system ever built on a commercial drone. It produces 10K Lumen of light for increased situational awareness in large spaces. The Indirect, dustproof lighting configuration allows traversing dirty places without losing sight of the objective.
Finally, detecting pitting and cracks has never been easier; Elios 2 features an oblique lighting mode to reveal the texture of surfaces by creating shadows in all asperities. Coming together, these features turn the Elios 2 into an inspection tool fit to carry on regulated inspections.
Since the launch of its first Elios platform in 2016, Flyability has quickly become the industry leader in the remote aerial inspection of confined spaces. To date, more than 550 Elios drones have been deployed at over 350 sites to inspect critical infrastructure for industries as diverse as power generation, mining, oil and gas, and chemical, even operating in radioactive areas of nuclear plants.
