The comprehensive line of Telemetrics servo-based Pan/Tilt units has been expanded to include a new model that provides added efficiency and reliability to the production environment. Now available, Telemetrics PT-CP-S4 Pan/Tilt Head offers side camera-mounting, a powerful DC-DC converter to power accessories over long cable runs, a newly designed cable management system, and serial data control with multi-processor architecture plus more, making it one of the most versatile and effective compact Pan/Tilt Heads offered on the market.
“The new PT-CP-S4 has been designed for user versatility and performance. It’s the perfect tool for accommodating a variety of cameras and studio set ups without compromise,” said Anthony Cuomo, Vice President and General Manager, Telemetrics, Inc. “Additionally, the PT-CP-S4’s DC-DC converter allows more flexibility in set up by extending the distance between the Pan/Tilt head and the control location power supplies.”
The PT-CP-S4 can be set up with the camera mounted on the side or on the top as well as being positioned upright or inverted. A powerful DC-DC converter at the base of the Pan/Tilt head converts 48V power to the appropriate voltage levels for the head, auxiliary robotic devices, camera, lens and viewfinder. And when the PT-CP-S4 is used with the Telemetrics PS-RM-48V power supply, cable distances between the control location power supply and the Pan/Tilt unit can be measurably increased. The unit is controlled through serial data using RS-232 or RS-422 and also features multi-processor architecture with flash-based RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computer) servo controllers.
Also featured on the PT-CP-S4 is a newly designed cable management system that routes the cables to the camera through the Pan/Tilt Head. This design improvement offers added reliability to the set up because the cables are not swinging freely or being continually flexed as the unit pans and tilts.
The PT-CP-S4 includes Telemetrics renowned “camera operator-like” moves along with velocity servo controls for equally smooth preset motions and joystick control. End stops can be set either mechanically or electronically and heavy duty cross roller bearings and swiss motors with isolation mounts provide quiet operation. Up to 255 programmable timed presets are available with multi-axis convergence.
The unit additionally offers optional camera control for a selection of manufacturers’ cameras as well as Bluetooth® wireless control. The PT-CP-S4 also features an auxiliary control interface for the optionally available Telemetrics Trolley, Elevating Pedestal and Elevating Wall Mount.
