BTC - 101 Standard
The BTC-101 can be outfitted with 720p HD Sony FCB - EH 3150 or a standard definition digitally stabilized Sony FCB - EX11D Sensor. Additionally the BTC-101 can be fitted with the FLIR TAU 640 Thermal Sensor. This gimbal offers excellent coverage with a pan axis at ±180°, and the tilt axis that ranges from 20° up to 100° down.
Construction is composed of molded and machined polymers and carbon fiber. The ball is molded high impact thermoplastic and internally reinforced with a composite laminate. Chassis is fabricated from a combination of light weight polymer and a rigid carbon fiber main mounting plate. All pivoting points use precision ball bearings.
Control is by standard servo inputs (PWM) for the pan and tilt. Easy manual hookup can be done with an R/C transmitter. Most autopilots in use today can output inertial stability parameters in order to take full advantage of the high 1.25 sec for a full 360° rotation capability. The elevation function is equally fast at 0.45 sec with a maximum deflection of 130°. Full pulse width calibration schedules are provided with respect to degrees of pan rotation and tilt angle.
