Blue Vigil’s Power Drone Tether now features a 300ft tether length

Herndon, VA — 10/05/2020 — Blue Vigil has announced the introduction of their latest version of their RS1000 drone power tether system. The company’s Drone Power Tether System enables a drone operator to keep their aircraft in hover for unlimited flight durations. The RS1000’s reactive spooling system ensures that the tether cable is never underfoot.

The company is now selling the RS1000X which features a 300ft tether which is twice the length of the original tether on the RS1000 (now referred to as the RS1000C).   The RS1000X also features an  improved and more durable tether, higher power capability and enhanced thermal management. The system will work with most commercial grade drones including DJI’s Inspire 1, Inspire 2, and Matrice 200/210; the Tarot X4; Terraview’s Range proand any other drone in a similar class up to 9kg.  Despite the longer tether the RS1000x continues to be able to provide up to 1500 watts of sustained power (using 220V input), and is fully compatible with all Blue Vigil air modules.

“With the Blue Vigil RS1000X UAS operators can respond to use cases that had been previously limited by the tether length,” said Rob Schumann, Blue Vigil’s CEO. “Blue Vigil continues to be the best value in tether systems in today’s market when you consider features, versatility and price.  Those benefits all hold true with the RS1000X.”

The Blue Vigil system used by customers on six continents for a wide range of applications. It is made in the USA. The tether system is designed to allow for quick and easy set up with the customer’s commercially available, off-the-shelf drone. The drone can remain aloft as long as power is conveyed through the tether. The power source can be a generator, household current or battery providing unlimited flight.  The drone can be easily detached from the tether to enable unrestricted flight with the same aircraft maximizing operator mission flexibility.
