Pan-Tilt Unit D300 RF Overview

The PTU D300 RF 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.
