Elistair launches its Ligh-T v4 compact tethering station for drones

Elistair launches the Ligh-T V.4, the newest version of its rugged and compact tether station for drones.

With the first version released back in 2015, Ligh-T has been widely deployed by police forces, public safety, private security and industries in over 50 countries, and was selected by for various major events such as the Superbowl 2019 held in Atlanta with CNN or Trinidad Carnival 2019
known as the biggest carnival in the Caribbean.

With its experience and its large tethered drone customer base in more than 50 countries, Elistair proved itself capable of providing drones users with mission-critical and game-changing technology. Keeping up with its goals of flexibility, robustness and mobility, the Ligh-T V4 sees itself endowed with new features designed to facilitate operators’ workflow.

The French company released the V1 for the first time back in 2015. The V4, with its 230 feet long micro-tether, provides unlimited power to a wide range of drones thanks to Plug and Fly Air modules, such as DJI’s M200 V2, M200 V1, Inspire 1 and 2, or the Yuneec H920. Unlimited data transfer is possible through its 10.5 g/m micro-tether.

The micro-tether is also equipped with a new Dual Mode Tether Management system (DMTM), enabling smart motorized control of the micro-tether tension while allowing the user to manually wind and unwind manually, in case of a power outage for instance. Housed in a rugged cased with an open and accessible interface, the system is easily transportable, optimized for easy maintenance and fully protected from the elements, allowing it to be deployed quickly in the most demanding and challenging conditions.

It is the perfect plug-and-fly tool to have to ensure fast and safe surveillance, defense, public and private safety, incidents/natural disasters assessment and pop up telecommunication missions.

The smart system is completed by the T-Monitor application that allows a full monitoring of the drone tether station’s state during each flight.

The Ligh-T V4 has been thought, designed, manufactured and tested to meet the needs of operators seeking a modulable, ready to use and rugged tool.
