The TG-18i is based on Shotoku’s highly popular and on-air proven TG-18 Pan and Tilt head. The TG-18i is at the heart of the Shotoku remote camera range, being widely used either standalone or with TI-12 or TI-11 elevators and SmartPed robotic pedestals. The TG-18i variant now allows customers to choose to have the CMC motion control system and PDU power unit fully integrated within the body of the TG-18 itself.
With integrated CMC and PDU, the TG-18i provides convenient connection points to the outside world, typically needing only AC power and network directly to the head. One of the benefits of the traditional, separated CMC is ease of service access, but this is not compromised with the TG-18i – it is still a quick and simple task to access the internal electronics and power circuits without any impact on the head or the payload, making service easy.
