The TG-18 offers exceptional robotic pan and tilt control, allowing complete freedom for on-air adjustments from any of our control systems. The head combines all the features expected of a high performance remote pan and tilt head (i.e. high accuracy, smooth movement, silent operation and high payload) with a full manual override capability.
The use of high resolution absolute encoders ensure accurate shot storage and ultra-smooth movement even at the tightest of zoom angle – essential for the demanding applications for which the TG-18 is intended. When used with our TR-XT advanced robotics control systems the TG-18 is able to support the unique real-time motion learning feature, by recording precisely the movements of the head and lens.
The robotic head is fitted with electronic clutches to instantly de-couple the motors for manual operation and high-quality adjustable fluid dampers provide the smooth, variable resistance required for precise manual control. Quick release brakes and a tilt paddle locking mechanism to assist camera mounting and de-mounting are included. No referencing of any kind is ever required (even at power-on) and when switching between manual and remote there is no head movement whatsoever.
