Pan and Tilt Unit - Model PTU-D300E Series


  • High-performance pan-tilt units that provide accurate real-time positioning of cameras, lasers, antenna, or other payloads to over 90 lbs
  • Fully weatherized, offer continuous pan rotation, internal wiring for payload signals, and are designed for harsh environments in fixed and mobile applications.
  • integral Ethernet/web interface, programmable ranges of motion, and improved motion control fidelity.
  • Compact, rugged, high duty cycles, ideal for fixed or mobile applications
Ordering Info: Part No. See Below


The PTU-D300 model family of full-sized computer-controlled pan-tilts are designed for a wide range of outdoor fixed and mobile applications. They are compact, rugged and offer an off-the-shelf solution for positioning of any type of small sensor or other payload. The D300 family has been proven over several years in a wide variety of fixed, ground vehicle, air, and sea applications in harsh environments.


The E Series models offer integral Ethernet/web interface, programmable ranges of motion, and improved motion control fidelity.


The PTU-D300 models utilize stepper motors with an asymmetrical worm-gear design. The gear system is complete sealed in an oil bath for maximal performance under high duty cycles. The body of the pan-tilt is constructed from machined aluminum and provides very rigid, repeatable positioning. The controller is fully integrated and the units provide a single weatherized mil-style connector for power, pan-tilt and payload signals.


Payloads can be mounted on the sides and/or top (multiple bracket configurations available). The RF configuration provides continuous pan rotation for antenna applications, with a rotary joint providing a single DC-18GHz RF pass-through channel, in addition to a slip-ring for other signal pass-throughs.


The inertial stabilization module (ISM) configuration uses an integrated gyro to actively control the pan-tilt to maintain the current pointing angle. This provides for improved camera images and communications links to be maintained from moving platforms including ground vehicles, boats, and aircraft. A real-time control interface is available through the ISM to support user joystick control, tracking and other applications in stabilized mode.


The built-in command set offers both ASCII and binary formats. This command set supports real-time control at very high command rates with very low and predictable latencies. The rich command set provides fine-grained control of position (absolute and relative), velocity, acceleration and other unit functions. The optional Geo-Pointing Module also provides an Ethernet/IP interface for control of the pan-tilt units.
