The Telemetrics PT-HP-S4 is a precision pan/tilt head with smooth variable operating speed. Heavy duty cross roller bearings and servo motors with isolation mounts provide quiet operation. The lens connector provides direct link and interface to lens functions. The unit is controlled through serial data using RS-232/422 or 10/100 BASE-T ethernet connections. Manual smooth motion is accomplished using velocity servo controls. Two hundred and fifty five presets are available. Presets are called using shot convergence technology, allowing for gradual transitions. Tally light on front panel indicates camera is successfully “On Air”. Receives power from the rack mount power supply (PS-RM-48-2). DC-DC converter at the base converts 48 volt to appropriate voltage levels for the head, auxiliary robotics devices, camera, lens and viewfinder.
