The Kessler Crane CineDrive Pan & Tilt Head features a 50:1 high-torque brick pan motor and 27:1 high-speed brick tilt motor, supporting up to 25 lb and 12 lb, respectively.
The 50:1 pan motor provides nearly twice the torque of the 27:1 pan motor and is recommended for when the Pan & Tilt head is used at an incline on a slider. Increased gear reduction results in motions of 54° per second and the ability to handle up to 25 lb loads (on center of gravity).
The 27:1 tilt motor provides fast motions of up to 106° per second, ideal for action shots, over-cranked slow motion, or ultra-quiet operation at slower speeds. Because of the faster gearing, torque is reduced, so the max load is 12 lb (on center of gravity) in horizontal use.
This Pan & Tilt Head uses a high-precision worm drive system that provides ultra-smooth, lash-free motion. This eliminates the need to calibrate for lash compensation and prevents the possibility of back-driven motion, ensuring safety to your camera even in case of power loss. An adjustable camera basket, used for vertical positioning, provides the center of gravity control required for vertical movement. Fixed and adjustable degree rulers, heavy-duty and weather-resistant cable connections, and a multitude of mounting holes provide the tools and flexibility that will allow for precision performance.
