The Telemetrics PT-LP-S4 is a precision pan/tilt head with smooth variable operating speed. Heavy duty bearings and motors with isolation mounts provide steady and quiet operation. Manual smooth motion is accomplished using digital servo controls. The unit is controlled through serial data using RS-232, RS-422 or Ethernet. Two hundred and fifty-five presets are available, memorizing pan, tilt, zoom, focus, track/televator, dolly, iris and master pedestal.* An optional camera control feature is available for certain cameras. The lens connector provides direct connection and interface to lens functions. Tally connector is provided to interface with optional Tally box (PT-LP-TL and PT-LP-TL12) and deliver video and power to a teleprompter. Extender/CC connector provides lens extender and contact closure interface. Optional video and power for a confidence monitor are provided through the same connector. The internal cable management system provides cable connections at the base of the pan/tilt to ease cable installation and operation. The PT-LP-S4 receives power from the PS-RM-48V Rack Mount Power Supply. A powerful DC-DC converter at the base of the Pan/Tilt head converts 48V to appropriate voltage levels for the head, auxiliary robotics devices, camera, lens, viewfinder, optional teleprompter and confidence monitor. Manual control option with adjustable drag without requiring power from the Pan/Tilt head is also available.

*Available only with camera control option.
