The PTU-D48E Series miniature, computer-controlled pan-tilt is compact and light weight, extremely rugged, fast, and precise. It features the E-Series electronics providing integrated Ethernet, improved command rates, programmable ranges of motion.
A single mil-style connector provides power and pan-tilt control, as well as pass through of payload signals via the integrated slip-ring.
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. The optional Geo-Pointing Module also provides an Ethernet/IP interface for control of the pan-tilt units.
