The PT-30 positioning head pans and tilts your film or video camera smooth and accurately by proportional joystick control.
Use on jib arms, remote mounts, or tripod mounted and run 2 cameras with 1 operator.
The new digital control has linear and logarithmic joystick capability,
in addition to deadspot and speed control.
Linear Joystick - Each degree of movement reflects and equal amount of speed increase.
Logarithmic Joystick - In the first half of the joystick movement, each degree reflects smaller increases in speed.
Second half of joystick movement increases faster to catch up to full power.
This makes slow speed more controllable yet keeps top speeds available if necessary.
Deadspot Control - Opens the center fo the joystick where no movement of the motors occurs.
This way you can set it to your abilitites and insure no crossover to the other axis when not wanted.
Speed Control - Limits top speed and spreads the new speed over the full movement of the joystick.
Creating more accuracy where needed.
Comes standard with 12 volt AC transformer. Also accepts 12 or 24 volt battery power
through 4 pin XLR connector (fits most battery belts). 24 volt power doubles the speed of
the motors but is not for extended use.
