Drones face the unique challenge of constant exposure to changing weather and environmental conditions. P2i works with drone manufacturers to provide a solution that protects the internal electronics of drones from both water and corrosion damage, without adding weight or components that will impact battery life, flight distance or manoeuvrability.
Drone technology is set to revolutionise the delivery and logistics sector. Delivery drones offer many benefits to both consumers and suppliers, such as lower costs with the reduction of human labour. They can also access difficult geographies more easily as well as having the ability to speed up the delivery of goods and shorten delivery times.
However, whether these drones are delivering parcels, essential medicines or food, delivery drones will need to be protected against weather and environmental conditions, to not only ensure that their goods are delivered, but to prolong the life of the drone.
P2i’s Barrier coating not only protects the delivery drone’s integral electrical components against damage caused by adverse weather and environmental conditions, including salt fog, but as a nano-coating it is practically weightless. This means that it will not impair battery life or affect maneuverability in any way.
As the global population continues to grow, the world’s demands on agriculture will also inevitably increase. Drone technology can help this sector improve productivity, whilst protecting sustainability, avoiding environmental damage and keeping costs downs. Agricultural drones can be used to perform a number of key tasks through every stage of the agricultural lifecycle: From the analysis of soil in fields, to planting seeds, as well as intelligently spraying drops, to determining the best moment to harvest.
The benefits of real time crop monitoring are obvious, but what is also evident is the need to protect the drone technology with a solution that not only prolongs the life of a drone, but does not hinder its performance in any way.
P2i’s near weightless weather-proof Barrier coating helps agricultural drone manufacturers who need their devices to operate in any weather condition by minimising safety-critical component failure and enabling full warrantable services/devices.
From monitoring construction sites, to aerial photography and from surveillance to exploration, drone technology has opened up the consumer and commercial worlds to new ways to see, review, analyse and report on the world around us.
The rewards gained from the use of drones are great, but only for as long as they are able to keep flying. Sending a drone out into the world means exposure to not only uncontrollable weather conditions, but also to invisible environmental conditions, which can lead to both water and corrosion damage of electronic components and the eventual grounding of the drone.
P2i’s Barrier solution provides protection against damage caused by water penetrating the device at any angle, as well as resistance to corrosion damage caused by salt fog.
P2i technology delivers market-leading liquid protection solutions for electronic products. Our patented plasma deposition processes offer unrivalled quality, protection and repairability, ensuring electronics keep working in any environment. Delivering protection from IPX1 to IPX8, P2i has a proven track record in mass production, having protected over 500 million electronic devices against liquid damage.
Everyday protection – IPx1-2
An ultra-thin, hydrophobic and oleophobic nanocoating is applied to the full device, without compromising look, feel or performance. Splash-proof is targeted towards achieving an IPX1-IPX2 rating, with additional protection against high humidity and corrosive environments. Since 2011, P2i has worked with the world’s leading OEMs and brands to deploy our Splash-proof liquid repellent nanocoating technology.
Accidents happen – IPx3-5
P2i Barrier provides unrivalled liquid protection for printed circuits board assemblies (PCBAs) in any electrical device. P2i’s revolutionary plasma coating delivers industry-leading protection and is fully reworkable, ensuring manufacturers reduce scrap and improve production yield while maximising liquid protection to increase product lifetime, reduce field repairs and returned products, and eliminate waste in the manufacturing process.
Ruggedized performance – IPx6-8
Dunkable® provides lifetime IPX6-IPX8 protection to consumer electronics with no degradation even after damage to the outer case. No seals or gaskets are required as the device is protected from the inside out, with all components protected against water damage. Dunkable® is a unique end-to-end water protection solution that provides manufacturers with protection that lasts for the lifetime of the product.
