Cable powered quadcopter system for continuous monitoring and signal transmission from the height up to 100 meters.

System description

Cable powered quadcopter system for continuous monitoring and signal transmission from up to 100 meters altitude. Allows performing video monitoring and/or broadcasting radio signals for portable and stationary applications. High-voltage power supply and payload data transmission is carried out via a cable connected to a ground station. The ground station might be powered by a 220 V outlet or by a generator.

The automatic cable tension system ensures stable operation of the system even under strong wind conditions. Built-in backup battery on the UAV ensures automatic safe landing in case of the ground power loss.

electrical safety and EMC

To ensure the safety of the UAV during flights and to prevent possible threats, the following equipment is used:

  • The symmetry of the power line between the UAV and the ground module;
  • Galvanic isolation of the UAV power line;
  • Reducing the capacity of the UAV power line on the primary power supply circuit of the product;
  • The use of surge and interference protection devices on the ground module and on the UAV;
  • Relay protection of primary power equipment, protection of the operator from two-phase touches and faults;
  • Filters and galvanic isolation for sectioning the product and localization of signals and interference in their functional zones;
  • High-voltage galvanic isolation of external interfaces of the ground module;
  • Continuous monitoring of the electrical safety equipment by a test system;
  • Grounding device included.
