The remote head is able to carry cameras up to 40 kg. Its parts are NC-machined out of DUR-Aluminium to provide high strength.
Both axes, PAN and TILT, are fitted with a 130mm special 4-point-ball bearing, which is free of backlash and maintenance, and stands for a maximum of stability. The backlash-free motor-gear-unit drives the axes noise-free with a special tooth-belt. A high-resolution incremental encoder captures the movements of the axes digitally.
Due to the hollow shaft, the application of MIL-sliprings is possible so there is no rotational limitation. All electrical connections come out on hexagonal flanges of the PAN- and TILT-axes.
The head mount is optional, either 150mm bowl or Mitchell-Adapter. Two bubbles assist in adjusting the head for upright and hanging operation.
The motor electronics is located inside the housing. A 32-bit microprocessor provides the necessary control accuracy and the necessary software-transfer for the Servo-electronics and for multiplex-application of several heads.
 
The remote head can be controlled by three different operating consoles:
 

  1. pan bar control head
  2. joy-stick
  3. Pan / Tilt crank wheels
