Sentera Adds Late-Season Data Capture Options to DJI Phantom 4 Series Drones

Double 4K Sensor's fully customizable filters offer impeccable crop health insights

MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Sentera announced the availability of its Double 4K precision agriculture sensor on DJI Phantom 4 Professional, Advanced, and Standard drones. This offering provides Double 4K quality at entry-level pricing, expanding late-season data collection options for agronomists, crop consultants, and growers. Several system configurations are available including collection of normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), normalized difference red edge (NDRE), and high-resolution RGB data in a single flight. The Phantom 4 series drone with a Double 4K Sensor offers a robust yet affordable solution that helps users quickly detect and respond to problems.


Just in Time for Late Season Decisions
Better in-field data leads to better decisions, which translate into improved outcomes. The Double 4K sensor delivers outstanding high-resolution crop health imagery and data.

"We've experienced tremendous demand for our Double 4K Sensor during the first half of the 2017 North American growing season. We are excited to extend compatibility to the popular Phantom 4 drone family - just as critical late-season applications are being calculated," remarked Kris Poulson, vice president of agriculture for Sentera. "This solution gives ag professionals more control over their data capture than ever before, offering multiple configuration options on an easy-to-use platform."

A Variety of Data Capture Options
By retaining full functionality of the DJI Phantom 4 stock camera while integrating the versatile Sentera Double 4K sensor onto the commercial drone, ag professionals can capture even more data, all in a single flight.

For Phantom 4, Sentera will offer the Double 4K Sensor in two different configurations:

Five-band Multispectral (blue, green, red, red edge, and near-infrared (NIR)
Precision NDVI + Precision NDRE (for use with specific digital agriculture platforms)
Leveraging the Data
All data is seamlessly compatible with Sentera's AgVault™ Web, Mobile, and Desktop Software, integrating the Double 4K data with all major digital agriculture platforms.

EXAIR Corporation - Chip Trapper™

The patented Chip Trapper offers a fast, easy way to clean chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids. The Chip Trapper vacuums the coolant or liquid that is filled with debris and traps all the solids in a reusable filter bag. Only the liquid pumps back out. It is ideal for use on machines with sumps, parts washers, tanks and storage containers of contaminated liquids. The Chip Trapper uses EXAIR's compressed air powered Reversible Drum Vac (included) that can fill or empty a 55 gallon drum in less than two minutes. Simply set the Reversible Drum Vac pump and directional flow control valve on top of the drum to "fill" for it to quickly vacuum the liquid with solids. Once the sump, pit or tank is empty, set the pump and directional valve to "empty" for it to pump out clean coolant/liquid. All the chips and other solids are trapped inside the reusable filter bag of the Chip Trapper. Learn more here
