D300 E-Series: General overview
The PTU-D300 E-Series extreme-duty computer-controlled pan-tilt is designed for precise placement of payloads to 31.7 kg.and offers an off-the-shelf solution for positioning cameras, lasers, antennas, or other heavy payloads for both fixed and mobile applications. Included, is 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. The controller is fully integrated and 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 and 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.

Summary of features
• Complete and proven control interface. Flexible mounting for single and multi-part payloads; Built-in RS-232/485
• Proven system component; headroom for broad feature set
• High level, full-featured real-time command protocol
• Low-cost, off-the-shelf solution readily available; Fast integration with other system elements
• Compact, rugged design; Supports 100% duty cycles
• Fully sealed, weatherized design (IP67); Wide temperature ranges

Included among the many benefits to OEMs and systems integrators are:
Reduce development/integration time
Minimize technical risk
Speed time to market
Lower cost of operation
Reliable all-weather operation

TU-D300E standard model overview
Excellent system reliability through low parts count and highly integrated design
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 31.7 kg or more and features a integrated Ethernet, programmable ranges of motion, and enhanced motion control

The PTU-D300 E-Series pan/tilt offers very high precision positioning and speed control. The stepper motor/worm gear design supports microstepping and is based on a rigid bearing and mechanical design to ensure solid repeatable motion. The unit is highly programmable with user parameters for range of motion, speed, acceleration, power consumption and more. Real-time
command interface supports advanced applications such as video tracking.

The PTU-D300 E Series includes a fully integrated controller with single weatherized connection for outdoor fixed and mobile applications. The Side Mount model features a modular payload hub that allows simple "L" brackets to be mounted on the side and/or top. The dual-side mount configuration includes a top mount plate, and allows "L" brackets on either or both sides. The modular hub adapts easily to customer OEM brackets and payloads.
