The PTU-D100 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-D100 E-Series is an open platform that provides the flexibility needed while minimizing your development and integration effort. It 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.

Tough, Flexible, Programmable Pan/Tilt


With payload capacity up to 25 pounds and precise positioning, D100 pan/tilts have a wide range of pan speeds for smooth, precise 360° control.


Precise, real-time control of position, speed, and acceleration — plus a rigid worm gear design — provides steady positioning in windy environments and vehicle-mounted applications.


With integrated Ethernet and Web interfaces, increased command rates, reduced jitter, and advanced microstep control, D100 pan/tilts provide advanced performance at affordable prices.

1 Over-the-top payload assumes COG <6” from tilt axis; over the side payload assumes balanced COG.
2. Maximum speed may depend on exact payload inertia and input voltage.
3. Reduced speeds may be required for low temperature operation
