The PTU-D48E-ISM integrates a powerful, low-cost MEMs gyro to provide
active inertial stabilization of any type of payload. Stabilization
improves images while on the move and allows communications links to be
maintained from air, ground, or sea platforms. The PTU-D48E-ISM is
available in most of the PTU-D48E configurations, making it an ideal OEM
platform for a wide range of applications.
- Payloads to 10 lbs (stabilized)
- Integrated slip-ring for 360-continuous pan rotation (option)
- Small form-factor
- Light weight
- Position resolution down to 0.003°
- Pan speeds up to 100° / Sec.
- Wide range DC voltage input
The PTU-D148E-ISM provides stabilized pointing for virtually any type of
payload. The integrated MEMs sensor is used by the ISM processing
module to measure platform motion in real-time, and to dynamically
control the pan-tilt to compensate for unwanted motion. Its light weight
make it suitable for airborne as well as fixed or ground
mobile/portable applications. The real-time control interface allows
applications to dynamically control the PTU-D48E-ISM while stabilized,
to support applications such as slew-to-queue, video tracking, antenna
tracking, and more. Detailed information about the ISM can be found here.
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.
