Drone manufacturer DJI has launched a new weatherproof motor designed for use in a wider range of conditions. The E2000 has been developed for industrial applications and for film making. The motor's bearings are sealed to prevent fluids like sea water causing corrosion and a surface coating has been added to the stator. This also improves the kit's ability to resist rusting. E2000 weatherproof motor The motor also has a built-in centrifugal cooling system which not only keeps the motor's temperature down, it also help to keep dust and small particles out.

It's designed to produce extra power to lift add-ons such as advanced imaging sensors and computing equipment. It will carry payloads of 1800 to 2500 gms per axis with a maximum thrust of up to 5100 gms/rotor. The ESC has a silica thermal pad and heat sink for efficient heat dissipation.

The E2000 Standard has an IP56 rating. The 5 means it's protected against dust (not totally protected) and the 6 means it's protected against strong jets of water (but not against immersion). It has a separate ESC. The Pro version has the ESC incorporated in the motor unit. It's designed to fit on any aircraft with a 28mm diameter tubular arm. This would make it suitable for the DJI S900 or S1000+. The new motors will be released shortly. [caption id="attachment_4341" align="aligncenter" width="555"]IP Ratings table IP ratings explained.
