Pan-Tilt Unit D300E Standard Overview
The PTU-D300 extreme-duty computer-controlled pan-tilt is designed for precise positioning of payloads to 70 lbs. It offers an off-the-shelf solution for positioning cameras, lasers, antennas, or other heavy payloads for both fixed and mobile applications. It includes an integrated slip-ring for continuous pan-rotation applications.
The E Series models offer integral Ethernet/web interface, programmable ranges of motion, and improved motion control fidelity.
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 very high command rates 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. Geo-pointing allows units to be aimed with a latitude, longitude, altitude location. Geo-pointing is built into all E-Series models.
