Large, Multi-Payload, Durable Pan/Tilt Unit with Gigabit Ethernet pass through and configurable I/O

The PTU-D300 E Series supports any type of single or multi-part payload through a flexible bracketing system of top and/or side mounting. It has been designed to be simple to integrate. The PTU-D300 E Series is an open platform that provides the flexibility needed while minimizing your development and integration effort.
The PTU-D300 E Series has been proven in a wide range of mission-critical applications for positioning of cameras, lasers, antennas, or other instruments in both fixed and mobile environments. The real-time command interface supports advanced applications such as video tracking. It is designed for high duty cycles and reliable operation 24/7 in harsh all-weather environments. The low parts count, and highly integrated design provides unsurpassed system reliability.
The latest update to the D300 E Series family, the D300E-GigE offers Gigabit Ethernet pass through to the payload, and configurable I/O, making integration with high speed payloads even easier..
