Vinten FH-155 Overview

The Vinten FH-155 Robotic/Manual Head with Integrated StarTracker System is a fully functional robotic head that can be easily switched between robotic and manual modes. Suitable for studio or remote work, the head is nearly silent in either robotic or manual mode and supports up to 155 pounds. It features a built-in floor movement tracking system, the StarTracker system, which provides information on the head's position in relation to the floor. It has a cradle to adjust the center of gravity and balance of your camera on the head for best results. The head features accurate and highly repeatable motion control of the camera as well as compatible Canon and Fujinon servo-controlled lenses.

When switched to manual mode, the head features continuously adjustable servo tilt and pan drag to maintain the smooth function when being operated by a human operator. This head includes a pan handle rosette adapter and two telescoping pan handles. The head can tilt a total of 100° (50° down and 50° up), and can pan 359°. The built-in 3-port Ethernet switch simplifies integration with robotic pedestals and IP prompting equipment. Mounting the head on a tripod or pedestal requires an optional mounting adapter.

The optical StarTracker system provides information on the position of the head as it travels along the studio or location floor.
Designed for use with larger camera, lens, and prompter packages.
Combines sophisticated software and mechanical engineering to deliver accurate and smooth movement.
Designed to be near silent when moving, the head is well suited for use in environments with ultra-critical noise limits.
A manual mode of operation features continuously adjustable servo-controlled drag, offering smooth pan and tilt movement.
The servo-controlled drag system is powerful enough to manage payloads up to 155 pounds. Switching between robotic and manual mode can be done either at the head or controller.
A rosette adapter and two telescoping pan handles are included for use when the head is in manual mode.
