Telemetrics Displays New Line Of Servo Pan/Tilt Heads

New Digital Units Are Faster & More Accurate Than Previous Models.

Las Vegas, NV (April 8, 2002) - Telemetrics, Inc is displaying its new line of servo controlled pan/tilt heads to complement the company's comprehensive line of camera robotics systems. The new PT-CP-S2, PT-LP-S2 and PT-HP-S2 Servo Pan/Tilt Heads deliver more than twice the speed and three times more accuracy than previous models. In addition, the PT-HP-S2 offers a slip ring option that allows the unit to pan a continuous 360-degree circle.

"Our enhanced line of servo controlled pan/tilt heads deliver the control, programming versatility and smooth movements required for the most demanding broadcast and production applications," said Anthony Cuomo, Vice President, Telemetrics, Inc. "These new servo controlled pan/tilt heads are complemented by our new line of servo controllers and enhanced control panel software."

Telemetrics new line of servo pan/tilt heads can be controlled via RS-232 or RS-422 protocol with direct lens and camera interface connectors for camera and lens control functions. Serial control interfaces are available for most Hitachi, JVC, Panasonic and Sony cameras. A separate camera power connector provides optional power through the pan/tilt heads using the control system power supply. Manual smooth motion is accomplished using velocity servo controls, along with "camera operator" like convergent pan, tilt, zoom and focus presets.

All three units incorporate heavy duty cross roller bearings and precision Swiss DC motors with optical encoders that are isolation mounted for quiet operation. The units provide easy field upgradeable software with flash based technology through
the serial port. Both electronic and mechanical end stops are also provided. The units also come complete with an auxiliary connector for direct interface to Telemetrics' Televator Elevating Pedestal, Camera Trolley or Elevating Wall Mount Systems.

The PT-CP-S2 is a compact pan/tilt head available with either top or side mounting platforms; the PT-HP-S2 is an "H" shaped pan/tilt head that's available with extended arms and yoke, and an optional slip ring to provide unimpeded and continuous 360
degree panning; and the PT-LP-S2 is an "L" shaped pan/tilt head that is ideal for studio applications using a teleprompter. All three units are currently available.
