    The PTU-D47 miniature, computer-controlled pan-tilt is versatile and field-proven across 100's of applications. It is extremely compact and light weight and offers an off-the-shelf solution for positioning of any type of small sensor or other payload.

     The controller is fully integrated. A single mil-style connector provides power and pan-tilt control, as well as payload signal management (optional). The side-mount bracket allows positioning payloads for a lower center-of-gravity, and for mounting multiple payloads (top and side).

    The built-in command set offers both ASCII and binary formats. This command set supports real-time control at up to 60 commands/second 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. The RS-485 interface supports multi-drop networking of up to 127 devices. The optional Geo-Pointing Module also provides an Ethernet/IP interface for control of the pan-tilt units. The Extended I/O option allows a trackball to be connected directly to the pan-tilt unit for direct control without a computer.
