Welcome to the
CCTV cameras on the move
Youve probably gathered by now, a P/T does exactly what the name says; it allows an operator to remotely command the camera to move up and down (Tilt), and left to right (Pan). As with camera housings, the P/T heads come in different sizes, and with various degrees of environmental protection, depending on where its intended to be used. So if you need to get a camera moving, here are the options:-
Pan only heads - If you simply need to make a camera turn from side to side, a basic minipan unit may be all thats required.
Over the Top (OTT) Pan and Tilt heads - A more recent innovation (only just!) is the P/T head that supports the camera from below.
Specialist Pan and Tilt heads - The range is almost endless; medical, low noise, nuclear, high temperature, deep water, arctic ....
Control systems for Pan and Tilt heads - What are the options for controlling a remote control platform?
10 must know things about PT heads - What only ten I hear you ask! Well the other 158 are just soooo boring, you really don't want to know.
