Pan/tilt motor specifications
« on: March 15, 2011, 08:57:53 AM »
Hi everyone,
I'm new to the forum (found a lot of usefull threads :) thanks!) and new to Pan/tilt motors.
I want to use a motor to control the yam and pitch angles of a camera. Something like this:

http://www.servocity.com/html/spt200_pan___tilt_system.html
http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/p/3139-Pan-and-Tilt-Kit-with-Servos.aspx
http://superdroidrobots.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=188
http://www.crestron.com/resources/product_and_programming_resources/catalogs_and_brochures/online_catalog/default.asp?jump=1&model=C2N-CAMIDSPT

It needs to hold a camera with 600gr.

My problem is that I dont know what are good specifications and bad specifications, so I need some guide lines in what I need and what problems I will find.

Can you help me?

Hi,

It needs to hold a camera with 600gr.
Any of them should do then, the first one is probably the easiest one to use - the last one is overkill and have functions that you won't need.


My problem is that I dont know what are good specifications and bad specifications, so I need some guide lines in what I need and what problems I will find.
What exactly will you be using it for?
Are you aware of how to control the servos?
Regards,
Søren

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
Please remember...
Engineering is based on numbers - not adjectives

Thanks for your reply.

Im going to use it to move the camera according the orientation of a imu. My idea is to change the imu orientation and the camera moves to the new angle.

I never worked with this kind of mottors and I'm not aware of what I have to do (complete newbie :s ).

Sorry for my basic english.
