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 a separate CMC is ease of service, but this is not compromised on with the TG-18i. It is still a simple task to access the internal electronics and power circuits without any impact on the head or the payload, making service easy.
