Telemetrics Introduces High Performance Digital Servo Controlled Pan/Tilt Mechanism
Mahwah, NJ (December 12, 2001) - Telemetrics, Inc. has introduced a new high performance digital servo controlled pan/tilt mechanism to complement the company's comprehensive line of camera robotics systems. The new PT-HP-S2 High Performance Pan/Tilt Mechanism provides more than twice the speed and three times more accuracy than previous models. It is the second product in a new series of digital servo controlled pan/tilt mechanisms from Telemetrics. "Telemetrics new line of digital servo pan/tilt mechanisms deliver unsurpassed performance with the ability to simulate smooth camera operator movements, which makes them ideal for the most demanding broadcast and production applications," said Anthony Cuomo, Vice President, Telemetrics, Inc. The new PT-HP-S2 High Performance Pan/Tilt Mechanism is designed specifically for today's high performance ENG and compact CCD cameras with digital drive lenses. The unit is a precision pan/tilt mechanism 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 Sony, Panasonic, Hitachi and JVC cameras. A separate camera power connector provides optional power through the PT-HP-S2 using the control system power supply. Manual smooth motion is accomplished using velocity servo controls, along with smooth "camera operator" like convergent pan, tilt, zoom and focus presets. The PT-HP-S2 is available with either top or side mounting platforms. It incorporates heavy duty cross roller bearings and precision Swiss DC motors with optical encoders that are isolation mounted for quiet operation. The PT-HP-S2 provides easy field upgradeable software with flash based technology through the serial port. Both electronic and mechanical end stops are also provided. The PT-HP-S2 also comes complete with an auxiliary connector for direct interface to Telemetrics' Televator Elevating Pedestal, CTS Camera Track System Trolley or EMW-PT Elevating Wall Mount. The PT-HP-S2 is currently available.
