The Zenmuse Z15-A7 3-Axis Gimbal for Sony a7S / a7R from DJI performs two key functions: keeping the camera level and providing stabilization, thus helping you transform a larger multi-rotor UAV, such as the S1000+ or S900, into a platform for professional aerial video and aerial photography. Featuring ±0.01° control angle accuracy, the Zenmuse Z15-A7supports three operation modes; two optimized for aerial video and photo use and one for FPV (first person view) applications. The gimbal is operated using a dedicated stick on your transmitter (hand-held radio controller), and the receiver must have at least four free channels that can be assigned to gimbal operation.3-AXIS PROFESSIONAL GIMBAL WITH HIGH PERFORMANCE
DJI Zenmuse Gimbal is a milestone gimbal system which is developed for professional filming, aerial photography for commercial use. Even if aircrafts are in a fast-speed flight, it can still stabilize and control the camera equipment precisely with highest stability. The precision of control angle is within the range of ±0.05°, so picture or video output can reach the best effect.
GIMBAL DESIGN CUSTOMIZED FOR DIFFERENT CAMERAS
In order to make the gimbal function the best, DJI provides the customized Gimbal according to the type of camera. For example, the Zenmuse Z15 supports two types of camera, which are Sony Nex5/7 and Panasonic GH2. One type of Gimbal can only support one series of camera. When users want to use a different series of camera, they need purchase the related additional accessories.
MULTIPLE CONTROL MODES
Zenmuse gimbal system has three types of control modes, which are Orientation-locked control mode, Non Orientation-locked control mode and Back to Mid-point mode (Horizontal mode). The three types of modes can be switched quickly from one mode to another to meet the different requirements of aerial photography. With the perfect mode and easy operation of the stable 3-axis Zenmuse gimbal, users can take excellent aerial works.
3-AXIS ROTATION ANGLE UNLIMITED
The 3-axis Zenmuse gimbal system has creative design for its mechanical structure design. The slip rings inside avoid the complicated wiring. All the wires of the power and signal lines are integrated into pipes of the Gimbal , which means the axis can rotate without any limitation. The Yaw control could reach ±360°, the Pitch control could reach ±360° and the Roll control could reach ±40° (±360° mechanic continuous rotation).
BUILT-IN INDEPENDENT IMU MODULE
Due to years of dedication, DJI have achieved for their UAV autopilot systems a perfect attitude-stabilized algorithm, which, together with the high-precise induction device, can perfect performance of attitude control. Without the requirement of extra installation and connection of extra wires, it is also easy to assemble and it can maintain stable when flying.
INDEPENDENT GIMBAL CONTROLLER
The separate controller available for the gimbal is connected by the CAN wires with the main controller of DJI autopilot system. According to gimbal attitude feedback, it can control the rotation directions and angles high precisely and also communicate and receive real-time control orders from the main controller of the autopilot system.
DJI GIMBAL SPECIAL SERVOS DRIVE MODULE
The DJI Customized Gimbal Special Servos Drive Module meets all the control requirements of the high performance Zenmuse gimbal. With high precision, low vibration, high torque characteristics, this module provides quality additional features.
In order to minimize the payload of aircraft, the video output module with expanded features like camera shutter is customized to transform HDMI signal to AV with neat wiring, which ensures the smooth and free movement of the 3 axial Gimbal.
S-BUS RECEIVER SUPPORT
The module supports most transmitters and receivers in the market. It provides the Futaba S-Bus receiver with support and it is user-friendly.
3 AXIS ROTATION SPEED CONTROL
Zenmuse Gimbal 3-axis rotation controlling function is simple and easy to apply. Stick range corresponds with rotation speed of gimbal axis. Excellent control algorithm guarantees high precision performance of the axis rotation. Zenmuse gimbal rotation speed will not be influenced even when the aircraft is in high-speed spin or quick ascent.
