The FLIR PTU-D47 computer-controlled pan/tilt is compact, lightweight, versatile, and field-proven across hundreds of applications. It offers a low-cost, offthe-shelf solution for positioning camera, laser, antenna, or other payloads up to 12 pounds. It features a fully-integrated, mil-style controller with a single weatherized connection for power and pan/tilt control, as well as payload signal management (optional) in outdoor fixed and mobile applications. The side-mount bracket allows positioning payloads for a lower center-of-gravity, and for mounting multiple payloads (top and side).
Positions any payload: IP cameras, antennas, lasers
Smooth, repeatable motion provides steady images in windy environments
Solid and vibration-tolerant for vehicle-mounted applications
Rigid worm gear design; no belts/pulleys
High holding torque (no sag when powered off)
Wide range of pan speeds (< 0.01º/sec. to 300º/sec.)
Extremely precise positioning (0.01º) allows translating object positions map coordinates accurately
Integrated controller – no other electronics box required
Flexible payload mounting (top and/or side)
Single connector for all video, control, power interfaces
Precise control of position, speed, and acceleration
Simple control from host computer via RS-232/-485
Fully sealed for outdoor/marine applications (IP66)
CE Mark certification
Geo-Pointing Module: powerful command set supports real-time detection and tracking applications including absolute angle, relative angle, velocity control, geo-pointing (lat/lon); continuous velocity control
Ethernet/IP Interface Module
Payload wiring: flying leads from base to payload
