The PTU-D46-17P70T is designed for high-speed, accurate positioning of camera, laser, antenna, or other payloads up to 9 lbs. or more. It uses different gearing on the pan vs. tilt axes to provide fast pan speeds, while retaining maximum tilt payload capacity.
- Payloads to 9 lbs
- Miniature form-factor (< 5.2" tall)
- Under 3 lbs.
- Tilt Position resolution of 0.013° (1/2 step)
- Speeds up to 300° / Sec.
- Wide range DC voltage input
The PTU-D46-17P70T miniature, computer-controlled pan-tilt is versatile and field-proven across 100's of applications. It is extremely compact and light weight and offers an off-the-shelf solution for positioning of any type of small sensor or other payload.
The separate controller (4"x3"x1") can be located up to 56' away from the head. Both RS-232 and RS-485 interfaces are provided on the PTU-D46 Controller. An optional side-mount bracket allows positioning payloads for a lower center-of-gravity, and for mounting multiple payloads (top and side).
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 RS-485 interface supports multi-drop networking of up to 127 devices. The optional Geo-Pointing Module also provides an Ethernet/IP interface for control of the pan-tilt units. The Extended I/O option allows a trackball to be connected directly to the pan-tilt unit for direct control without a computer.
