This compact and lightweight motorized head is useful for mounting and controlling the pan and tilt of a camera where automatic or remote operation is preferred.

MP-101 Motorized Pan Tilt Head

Range of Motion

The MP-101 has two motors, one each for the pan and tilt functions. The motors operate independently of each other and can be controlled by the included MP-REMOTE.

Tilt Range: -15 to 15° and set to position using the included MP-REMOTE.
Note: The tilt axis has no automatic movement functionality.

Pan Range: 0 to 340°, with the following settings:

  • Auto mode: 0 to 340°, then returns to 0° and cycle repeats
  • 90° mode: 0 to 90°, then returns to 0° and cycle repeats
  • 45° mode: 0 to 45°, then returns to 0° and cycle repeats
  • 0° mode: Unit pans to 340°, then returns to 0° and parks

Note: For Auto, 90°, and 45° modes, the MP-101 starts by panning to zero before starting its cycle.

Remote Operation

The included MP-REMOTE can be used to set both pan and tilt position on the MP-101 head. The remote can also be used to control both pan and tilt movement directly, and the speed slider can vary the speed of the movement from between normal to 3x slower. The speed slider also varies the speed of the pan movement when the head is in Auto, 90°, and 45° mode.

Power

The MP-101 is powered by the included Bescor 90-645 battery, or by the following non-included power sources:

  • Four AA batteries
  • Bescor PS-260 power supply
