The PTU-D300 E Series 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 lbs. or more. It features a integrated Ethernet, programmable ranges of motion, and enhanced motion control. The PTU-D300 E Series includes a fully integrated controller with single weatherized connection for outdoor fixed and mobile applications.

- Tilt position resolution down to 0.00625°
- Pan/tilt speeds up to 100° / Sec.
- Wide range DC voltage input
- Integrated Ethernet
- Programmable ranges of motion
- High resolution digital encoders
The PTU-D300 extreme-duty computer-controlled pan-tilt is designed for precise positioning of payloads to 70 lbs. It offers an off-the-shelf solution for positioning cameras, lasers, antennas, or other heavy payloads for both fixed and mobile applications. It includes an integrated slip-ring for continuous pan-rotation applications.
The E Series models offer integral Ethernet/web interface, programmable ranges of motion, and improved motion control fidelity. For more information on the E-Series Models, click here.
The controller is fully integrated. A single mil-style connector provides power and pan-tilt control, as well as payload signal management (optional). Integrated flex-circuitry absorbs tilt motion for all internal wiring to provide long life over high duty cycles.
The built-in command set offers both ASCII and binary formats. This command set supports real-time control at very high command rates with very low and predictable latencies. The rich command set provides fine-grained control of position (absolute and relative), velocity, acceleration and other unit functions. Geo-pointing allows units to be aimed with a latitude, longitude, altitude location. Geo-pointing is built into all E-Series models.

* Pan-tilts support 1/2, 1/4, and 1/8 microstep modes as well as autostep mode, all software configurable. Quoted resolutions are for 1/8 step mode. Firmware default is 1/2 step. Torque and speeds are somewhat reduced at 1/4 and 1/8 step modes.
The PTU is offered with the following wiring options:
PL01: This option provides an alternate RS-232 communication option for communicating with the PTU-D300E in addition to the RS-485 lines, and includes a total of 10 payload pass-through lines that provide:
- 2 video channels (4C)
- 1 power circuit (3C)
- 3 general I/O lines (3C).
The PTU also provides two auxiliary serial ports to the payload connector that can be controlled using special commands for use controlling cameras or other peripherals without an additional serial port.
PL02: The standard wiring option provides additional pass-through lines from the PTU to the payload, including:
- 2 video channels (4C)
- 1 set of power lines (3C)
- 6 general I/O lines (6C)
The PTU also provides RS-232 control to the payload, which allows the PTU to be controlled by a module on the payload side. Please refer to “PL02 Wiring Diagram” on page A-5 for more information about the PL02 wiring option.
ISM: ISM-equipped PTUs are equipped with the PL02 wiring option.
