DJI Cendence Remote Controller
With the Cendence remote controller, the initial idea was to combine the Inspire 2, Tracktenna, and CrystalSky monitor as a highly-integrated unit. As an essential part of this approach, Cendence offers modular components and controls that realise the full potential of Inspire 2 & Matrice 200 applications.
What's in the Box?
Includes Cendence Patch Antenna.
Giving You Greater Control
To improve overall control efficiency, Cendence provides up to five analogue control channels and over ten customizable buttons. The design of Cendence also offers antenna interchangeability. A high-gain antenna, or DJI’s Tracktenna, can augment the power of DJI Lightbridge technology, significantly increasing overall anti-interference and video downlink quality.
The two knobs on the front panel of the Cendence control the gimbal pitch and yaw. The right and left levers and 'focus adjust knob' tune your flight controller settings and camera in real-time allowing for pulled focus and aperture setting. For rapid camera adjustments, you can customise several shortcut buttons.
Rotate the dials or toggle the right and left levers while holding certain (customisable) buttons to control gimbal roll, shutter speed and ISO amongst other settings.
Detachable Design & Dual Operators
The CrystalSky monitor mounts to the Cendence remote controller via the Cendence Monitor Mounting Bracket. Cendence's antennas, PCB, mounting bracket, and battery are all detachable, making its hardware upgradeable. Customising the controller for compatibility with future DJI aircraft has never been easier.
The USBA supports connection with other mobile devices. When precision camera control is required, Cendence can connect as either a master or slave controller with the Inspire 2's remote controller or another Cendence remote controller.
Multiple Ports & Intelligent Battery System
SDI and HDMI ports support broadcasting at 1080i50 and 720p60. Connect DJI Focus, Tracktenna, or other compatible accessories via the CAN port. Use Tracktenna to achieve stable and high-bandwidth transmission over long distances at 2.4GHz or 5.8GHz frequency bands. When used with the Inspire 2, Tracktenna can achieve a maximum data transmission speed of 10Mbps within a 2km range, dramatically improving video downlink quality. The USBA port supports connection with other mobile devices.
Cendence uses the same batteries as CrystalSky monitors for enhanced product synergy. If you run out of power, just swap in a charged battery or charge Cendence via the power port.
Practical accessories make using Cendence easy. The Cendence Support Rig takes on part of the controller’s weight, making it easier to hold for long periods of time. Control Stick Covers prevent dust from entering both sticks, ensuring smooth and reliable control. The Interchangeable Mobile Device Holder lets you attach a phone or tablet instead of a CrystalSky monitor.
The DJI Cendence is currently compatible with the Inspire 2 and Matrice 200 aircraft series.
DJI Cendence FAQs
What are the main differences between the DJI Cendence and the Inspire 2 and Matrice 200 remote controllers?
Unlike the Inspire 2 and Matrice 200 controllers, the Cendence has a built-in ultra bright LCD display monitor. A variety of functions in the app can be activated by customizable buttons on the controller. Operation time is longer, and batteries and antennas are interchangeable. The Cendence is better equipped to excel in complex environments and is compatible with DJI’s CrystalSky monitor.
Why does the Cendence have SDI ports?
The standard broadcasting signal can be exported via SDI ports, which enables the Cendence to be used in live broadcasting scenarios.
What are the CAN ports on DJI's Cendence used for?
CAN ports allow Cendence to connect to DJI Focus, Tracktenna, or external GPS modules.
Does the Cendence support dual operator control?
Yes. You can set one master and one slave controller.
