The Matrice 600 (M600) is DJI’s new flying platform designed for professional aerial photography and industrial applications. It is built to closely integrate with a host of powerful DJI technologies, including the A3 flight controller, Lightbridge 2 transmission system, Intelligent Batteries and Battery Management system, for maximum performance and quick setup.
Total IntegrationThe modular design makes the M600 easy to set up and ready to use in just minutes. Its dust proof propulsion systems simplify maintenance while actively cooled motors make for reliable operation during extended periods of time. All Zenmuse cameras and gimbals are natively compatible, and a maximum payload of 6 kg allows it to fly the Ronin-MX gimbal and a range of cameras from Micro Four Thirds systems to the RED Epic.
Smart Flight SafetyThe M600 uses sine-wave driven, intelligent ESCs to ensure it performs accurately, safely and efficiently while A3’s self-adaptive flight systems adjust flight parameters automatically based on different payloads. The A3 can be upgraded with two additional GNSS and IMU units to A3 Pro or with D-RTK GNSS for enhanced accuracy.* * The A3 Pro and D-RTK GNSS are sold separately.
Extended Flight Time and Transmission RangeThe M600 features an extended flight time and a 5 km* long-range, ultra-low latency HD image transmission for accurate image composition and capture. By using 6 small DJI Intelligent Batteries, allowing it to easily be shipped to wherever it is needed. A customized battery management system and power distribution board allows all six batteries to be turned on with one button press, and keeps the system in flight in the event of a failure of a single battery, and allows users to check the battery status in real-time during flight.
Professional HD TransmissionDJI Lightbridge 2 has been designed from the ground up to meet the requirements of professional broadcasting, offering high frame rates and HD live streaming. USB, mini-HDMI and 3G-SDI ports support video output at up to 1080p/60fps or a broadcast standard output of 720p/59.94fps and 1080i/50fps.
Powerful App ControlThe M600 supports the DJI GO app and the brand new DJI Assistant 2. Get a live HD view, battery status, redundancy status, transmission strength and much more, straight from the DJI GO app. DJI GO is also the control center for the camera, giving access to shutter speed, ISO, photo or video capture on any Zenmuse X series camera and remote focus and aperture on the Zenmuse X5 and X5R cameras. The brand new DJI Assistant 2 supports firmware updates and the new Ground Station, and comes with a built-in flight simulator.
Custom DevelopmentThe M600 is fully compatible with the DJI Onboard SDK and Mobile SDK to meet the requirements of those building software for industrial applications. It has a dual parallel CAN and API ports for connecting DJI devices including the Guidance sensor system, the D-RTK GNSS units or third party components of your choice.
The Ronin-MX from DJI is dual-use gimbal suitable both for mounting on the Matrice 600 aerial platform as well as deployment closer to the ground. Improving over the Ronin-M, it features magnesium construction to yield high rigidity while keeping the weight down. The gimbal is suitable for cinema cameras, mirrorless cameras, and DSLRs weighing up to 10 pounds. Out of the box it supports two-operator operation, and includes a radio controller (transmitter) for the camera operator. There is an optional Thumb Controller (available separately) for solo operation. When installed on the Matrice 600 aircraft, the gimbal can be controlled via the DJI GO app. Included are an universal mounting adapter allows it to be adapted for use with jibs, car mounts, and various other types of camera support equipment, and a handlebar for handheld use.
Built to Perform
360° Freedom of MovementA slip ring allows the Ronin-MX to rotate 360° continuously when mounted to aircraft or vehicles, opening up more creative options. This is further enhanced by an increase in tilt-axis range (compared to the Ronin-M) from 90° straight down and beyond to 135°. Popular features of the Ronin series, such as the three modes of operation and SmoothTrack, are also present, giving filmmakers a range of creative angles and movements.
Wireless Control and TransmissionThe Ronin-MX is compatible with Lightbridge 2, providing long-range HD video transmission from the air to the ground from up to 3.1 miles away. If combined with the separately available DJI Focus and Focus Expansion Module, focus or aperture can also be pulled remotely with a twist of the wrist. An optional Remote Start/Stop add-on provides the ability to control shooting on a range of airborne cameras.
App ControlUsing DJI Assistant and the dedicated Assistant app for iOS and Android allows complete customization of the Ronin-MX and its behavior. If connected to Lightbridge 2, the DJI GO app can be used to control the gimbal and see an HD live feed from the camera.
Refined BalanceA redesigned structure moves the Ronin-MX battery from the back to the front. This centers the weight of the camera, minimizing instability when flying directly forwards. It also dramatically increases the Ronin's agility and ability to handle rapid movements or high-G situations.
Magnesium ConstructionBuilt extensively of lightweight magnesium, the Ronin-MX weighs just 6.1 lb. This lightness allows it to be mounted to the Matrice 600, even when equipped with cameras as advanced as the RED EPIC, and to vehicles, with a minimum impact on vehicle handling.
Strengthened Motors and ESCsA combination of stronger motors and ESCs makes the Ronin-MX 50% more powerful than the Ronin-M. This additional stiffness and power allows the system to better withstand wind resistance, when mounted to moving vehicles and aircraft, as well as more rapid movements.
External Camera BatteryCameras such as the RED EPIC need an external battery for power. A dedicated position designed for an optional battery plate provides an easy, cable-free mounting point for a second DJI Intelligent Battery. This provides two 12V D-Tap power sources for powering cameras and accessories.
Intelligent BatteriesRonin-MX batteries offer a battery life of up to three hours. Over-charge and over-depletion protection are built in, as is individual cell charge balancing. Remaining power is shown by clear LEDs and in the DJI GO app.
Built-In Power DistributionA dedicated power distribution box keeps wiring to a minimum while providing power to essential accessories. Two regulated 12V D-Taps, one 500mAh full-size USB connector, and a DJI Lightbridge connector enable connectivity and power to nearly everything a filmmaker might need.
Solo Mode with Optional Thumb ControllerThe separately available Ronin Wireless Thumb Controller makes controlling the Ronin-MX easy and intuitive, enabling the capture of shots that would otherwise be impossible for a single operator.
Second Operator ControlA wireless 2.4 GHz remote controller is included with the Ronin-MX enabling a second operator to remotely control pan, tilt, roll, and other functions.
Three Operation Modes
- Upright Mode allows the gimbal to be flipped over so the camera can be operated closer to eye level without straining to lift the gimbal. This can be used in various situations, such mounting on the top of the vehicle.
- Underslung (Suspended) Mode is the standard operation mode for Ronin-M. Low slung, close to the ground, or simply holding the gimbal in front of you offers stabilized handheld footage. This mode would also be used when mounted the gimbal on a flying platform such as a multirotor RC helicopter.
- Briefcase Mode for when a slimmer gimbal profile is needed – such as when moving through doorways or narrow paths – Briefcase Mode is ideal. It allows the gimbal to be held to the side and close to the legs, much like a briefcase.
SmoothTrack TechnologyEven with only one operator, SmoothTrack technology is designed to ensure the Ronin-MX translates movements into smooth camera angle changes. SmoothTrack settings, from speed to deadband to acceleration, are fully customizable. A "Single Axis Follow Mode" enables two axes to be locked while SmoothTrack guides the camera along only one axis of motion.
Universal MountingMount the Ronin-MX to aircraft using a specially designed mounting plate. A separate universal Quick Release system that doubles as a vibration-dampening system allows the Ronin-MX to be connected to everything from jib to tripod and anything in between. This plate isolates the Ronin-MX from unwanted vibrations coming from the platforms it is mounted to.
Short Range Wireless TransmissionOn the ground, the separately available SRW-60G* allows filmmakers to see the image from the camera without running cables up the Ronin-MX. * The SRW-60G is not permitted for use on aerial platforms in North America.
