The PTU-D48 E-Series supports any type of single or multi-part payload through a flexible bracketing system of top and/or side mounting. The real-time command interface supports advanced applications such as video tracking. The PTU-D48 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. It is designed for high duty cycles and reliable operation 24/7 in harsh all-weather environments.


With payload capacity up to 15 pounds and precise positioning, D48 pan/tilts have a wide range of pan speeds for smooth, precise 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, D48 pan/tilts provide advanced performance.
