PTU-D47

Pan-Tilt Unit-D47 Models

The PTU-D47 computer-controlled pan/tilt is compact, lightweight, versatile, and field-proven across hundreds of applications. It offers a low-cost, off-the-shelf solution for positioning camera, laser, antenna, or other payloads up to 12 pounds. It features a fully-integrated, mil-style controller with a single weatherized connection for power and pan/tilt control, as well as payload signal management (optional) in outdoor fixed and mobile applications. The side-mount bracket allows positioning payloads for a lower center-of-gravity, and for mounting multiple payloads (top and side).

  • Payloads to 12 lbs
  • Small form-factor (<6.5" tall)
  • Under 5.4 lbs
  • Tilt position resolution of 0.003° (with microstep)
  • Pan speeds up to 300° / Sec.
  • Wide range DC voltage input

 

Overview

D46-70

The PTU-D47 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 controller is fully integrated. A single mil-style connector provides power and pan-tilt control, as well as payload signal management (optional). The 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.
