Weatherproof heavy payload robotic pan and tilt head
The FHR-155E is a robotic pan and tilt head designed to support full size broadcast cameras and lenses as remote controlled robotic devices in outdoor locations. With a maximum payload capacity of 90kg/200lb, the FHR-155E combines sophisticated software and mechanical engineering to enable exceptionally accurate, smooth, and quiet camera movements in challenging open-air environments.
As part of the FH/R-155 range of robotic heads, the FHR-155E delivers broadcast quality production values to challenging environments including heat, cold, dust or rain.
Designed to military specification for use in desert conditions, the IP65 rated FHR-155E is insulated against extreme temperatures with an operating range of 4°C to 50°C. The weatherproof camera enclosure features a remote-controlled wiper with optional jet wash for a clear field of view and is pressurized to prevent any dust being drawn inside. An optional Cooler Module that is independently regulated by an internal thermostatic control can be attached to the enclosure to maintain a constant optimum operating temperature for the camera and lens.
With IP network connectivity, camera operators can make intuitive and smooth pan-and-tilt movements remotely using the familiar Vinten HD-VRC control system used in studio robotics. The FHR-155E features a pan range of 359° and a tilt range of ±30° (±179° with extended cradle arm) and is designed to be near-silent when in motion — making it ideal for environments with noise limitations.
The FHR-155E is the ideal solution for areas where it would be impractical to deploy a manual camera operator such as broadcast weather cameras, inaccessible areas of sports arenas or religious gatherings.
