Weight and Size: DJI Dock 2 is significantly lighter and more compact than its predecessor, weighing only 34kg compared to the 90kg of DJI Dock 1. The size reduction enhances portability and installation flexibility.
Ingress Protection: While both docks are designed with durability in mind, including IP55-level dust and water resistance, the DJI Dock 2’s design allows for operation in harsh climates and reduced size and weight contribute to its improved protective performance.
Charging and Turnaround: The original DJI Dock features rapid charging that readies drones for flight in 25 minutes, whereas the DJI Dock 2 charges from 20% to 90% in approximately 32 minutes.
Operational Radius and Flight Time: DJI Dock 1 offers a 7 km flight radius and 40 minutes of flight time. While DJI Dock 2 can fly up to 50 minutes and 10 km flight radius.
Intelligent Features and Cloud Integration: Both docks integrate intelligent features and cloud-based operations. However, DJI Dock 2 has enhanced integration with DJI FlightHub 2, providing advanced functions like cloud modelling and automated flights.
Maintenance and Monitoring: DJI Dock 1 features a Health Management System for maintenance and status monitoring. DJI Dock 2’s overall design and features suggest similar or improved maintenance capabilities, ensuring long-term, independent operation.
Environmental Monitoring: Both docks have environmental monitoring systems to adjust to weather changes, but the DJI Dock 2 emphasises its improved environmental sensors and alarms for more effective flight risk management. The DJI Dock 2 is clearly designed with an emphasis on enhanced portability, rapid deployment, and advanced integration for intelligent drone operations, building upon and exceeding the foundation laid by the original DJI Dock. Stay tuned for more updates and detailed insights and get ready to see how the DJI Dock 2 could fit into your operational workflow. ,/p>
