Pan and tilt cameras have better than ever tracking abilities

Pan and tilt cameras have better than ever tracking abilities
CCTV pan and tilt drives are required to be faster, quieter, smaller, smoother and even more accurate than ever; however security operators also need them to be easy to set up and run. Additionally with all this, they insist that costs continue to come down, so how do you achieve all these elements? Gerard Bush of INMOCO explores how today’s high performance off-the-shelf motion products can quickly bring sophisticated systems to market and reduce the price point.

Digital amplifier delivers multi-motor capability

Digital amplifier delivers multi-motor capability
The ATLAS digital amplifiers from Performance Motion Devices, available through INMOCO have been able to control a user’s choice of DC brush, brushless DC and stepper motors for a long time, however the latest version of the compact amplifier brings enhanced multi-motor capability. This allows the motor type to be programmed by the user with no board changes required. The result is even greater flexibility in the development of motor control applications.

Expanding the horizons of motion control chips

Expanding the horizons of motion control chips
Off-the-shelf motion control chips or Integrated Circuits (ICs) are highly flexible and can in fact be used to control many other types of system, as Gerard Bush of INMOCO illustrates. Motion control systems rely on changing the speed of one or more motors in order to achieve a given outcome. For instance, glue laying and profile following typically use two motor driven linear actuators set perpendicular to one another. If you activate just one motor at a constant speed, the result is a straight line movement in one direction.

Mighty Minis

Mighty Minis
If you’re looking for high-performance control of DC brushed, brushless and stepper motors across multiple axes, the typical enclosed DIN-rail mounting box might be your first thought. But INMOCO’s Gerard Bush argues that in many general purpose automation applications, as well as in areas such as life sciences equipment, scientific automation and robotics, PCB motion cards, amplifiers and motion/amplifiers might well provide a better option.
