Pan-Tilt Unit-D300 E Series GigE

The PTU-D300 E-Series GigE is a precision pan/tilt designed for extreme performance on demanding applications. It provides high-speed, accurate positioning of camera, laser, antenna, or other payloads up to 70 pounds,

  • Payloads to 70 pounds
  • Integrated slip-ring for 360-continuous pan rotation
  • Gigabit Ethernet to the payload
  • Software configurable pass through lines
  • Small form factor
  • Under 29 pounds

D300 E Series GigE


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. Easy 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.

Tough, Flexible, Programmable Pan/Tilt


With payload capacity up to 25 pounds and precise positioning, D300E 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, D300E pan/tilts provide advanced performance at affordable prices.
