PTU-D300-RF

Pan-Tilt Unit-D300 RF - Antenna Positioner

The PTU-D300-RF provides fast, accurate positioning of antennas and other RF equipment that require 360-continuous rotation. It supports payloads to 70 lbs., and its light weight and compact size make it ideal for mobile and portable applications. The dual-side mount configurations simplifies mounting of counterweights and a variety of antenna types.

  • Payloads to 70 lbs
  • Integrated slip-ring for 360-continuous pan rotation with DC-18 GHz RF pass-through (DC-26.5 GHz option)
  • Small form-factor
  • Position resolution down to 0.00625°
  • Pan/tilt speeds up to 100° / Sec.
  • Wide range DC voltage input

 

Overview

The PTU-D300 extreme-duty computer-controlled positioner is designed for precise positioning of antennas and other RF equipment up to 70 lbs. It includes an integrated slip-ring and rotary joint for continuous pan-rotation applications for DC-26.5 GHz RF signals. Its light weight make it suitable for airborne as well as fixed or ground mobile/portable applications.

 

The real-time control capabilities make it well suited for antenna tracking applications such as air-to-ground and ground-to-air communications, communications-on-the-move, and shipboard communications.

 

The controller is fully integrated. A single mil-style connector provides power and pan-tilt control, as well as payload signal management (optional). Integrated flex-circuitry absorbs tilt motion for all internal wiring to provide long life over high duty cycles.

 

The built-in command set offers both ASCII and binary formats. This command set supports real-time control at up to 60 commands/second with very low and predictable latencies. The rich command set provides fine-grained control of position (absolute and relative), velocity, acceleration and other unit functions. The optional Geo-Pointing Module also provides an Ethernet/IP interface for control of the pan-tilt units.
