QPT 500

The QPT-500 Series of Pan & Tilt Positioners are designed for a wide variety of applications. They are rugged and durable enough for virtually any environment. The QPT-500 can handle payloads up to 500 lb-ft of torque making them suitable for a wide range of sensors. Multiple models are available to fit your needs. Integrated Control (IC) units can communicate via networked PC or separate controller. Analog units are cost-effective solutions where simple command and control are required without a PC. The Sentry line includes integrated Stepper Motors for higher accuracy and speed control.
