The HEDEN YMER 2-Motor Lens Control Kit with M26VE allows you to wirelessly control focus and aperture with the included two M26VE motors. Additionally, it supports an optional LANC controller unit for wired zoom control. The included transmitter and receiver provide up to 330' of wireless transmission indoors and up to 1640' line-of-sight transmission in open areas. The receiver is capable of driving both motors, one at a time, switching between them at the press of a button. The system provides fast, accurate responsiveness and high motor speed.
HEDEN YMER Lens Control Kit without Motor
The HEDEN YMER Lens Control Kit without Motor provides wireless focus and iris control and supports zoom control via an optional wired LANC controller unit. Included are a transmitter and receiver that provide up to 330' of wireless transmission indoors and up to 1640' line-of-sight transmission in open areas. The receiver is capable of driving up to two motors (focus/iris), one at a time, switching between them at the press of a button. It supports the HEDEN M21VE-L, M26VE, VM35, LM30, and CM55 motors. The system is designed to provide fast, accurate responsiveness.
A key feature of this system is HEDEN's LenSaver Calibration, which provides a simple and effective way of calibrating for follow focus control. Press the "calibration" button, move your lens by hand from end-stop to end-stop, and then press the "calibration" button again as the last step. This is done without risk of damaging delicate lenses or lenses without end-stops. Another key feature is Manual Override, which lets you take manual control of the lens without affecting calibration. This feature allows the DP or camera operator to take manual control of the lens from the focus puller.
The YMER 1 transmitter's comfortable control knob offers very smooth rotation and features adjustable resistance for varying needs. Limit points can be set for easier focus adjustments, and the rotation range can be increased for finer control. Mounting threads on the rear allow attaching other devices, and an onboard button also allows you to remotely trigger recording. The transmitter is powered by a Sony NP-FM500H compatible battery, sold separately.
The YMER 1+1 receiver offers one wireless channel for focus and iris control, and one wired channel for an optional HEDEN LANC controller for zoom control.

HEDEN M26VE Motor (256 Encoder, 3.3k ID Resistor)
The HEDEN M26VE Motor is a quiet, yet high-torque lens motor for driving focus, zoom, or iris rings on cinema or ENG lenses. The included 0.8 MOD gear interfaces with standard cine lenses or photo lenses with gear rings and can be attached on either side of the motor. The high torque of the motor can drive most lenses, regardless of mechanical stiffness due to cold weather or age. Secure the motor itself to your rig using the 19mm rod clamp, which includes a 15mm bushing for lightweight setups. This particular model of M26VE features 256 encoders and a 3.3k resistor for compatibility with HEDEN and Bartech equipment. A 7-pin LEMO connection provides both power and control signals to the motor from the receiver or motor driver.
HEDEN Motor Cable for CARAT System
The HEDEN Motor Cable for CARAT System allows the HEDEN CARAT receiver to drive a M21VE, M21VE-L, or M26VE motor. This cable is terminated by 7-pin LEMO-type connections.
