Introducing Skysense Outdoor Charging Pad

The Outdoor Charging Pad is Skysense's first Drone Charging Station designed for outdoor deployments.

The system derives its design and robustness from the technology used to power the indoor charging pad.

It works in the rain, transfers high currents, and the drone payload weight is lightweight.

The Charging Platform

Skysense Outdoor Charging Pad consists of one rugged IP55 stainless steel conductive platform and a drone retrofit-kit. The charging platform is installed on the ground and is activated when the drone lands on its surface regardless of its size, position, and orientation.

Management Interface

Skysense Charging Pad is managed and monitored via APIs and Graphical User Interface. Check device status, monitor and manage the charging process.

 

We found Skysense’s Charging Pads easy to setup and use for our Drone Energy Cycling Project. We enjoyed our communication with their team which we hope to continue working with Skysense in future.

Rainproof

IP55 design and made of stainless steel, the system can recharge batteries even in the rain.

High-Power

In its standard configuration, the Outdoor Charging Pad can transfer up to 10A and 50V.

Lightweight

Unlike common wireless charging systems, the weight of the retrofit-kit is limited to 45-150g up to 10A.
