  • Mast mounted surveillance cameras
  • Fast patrol boats
  • Heavy vehicle vision aids and systems
  • Port and shipping surveillance systems
  • Customs, coastguard and police vessels
  • Security and perimeter defence

Instro's D2 motorised Pan and Tilt is engineered for surveillance applications using the latest HD format cameras with digital IP streaming interfaces at Gigabit data rates.

Designed for modular configuration, D2 features 100°/Sec agility, with milliradian accuracy and repeatability. When fitted with the optional Gyro kit, it's stabilisation bandwidth makes it an ideal platform for streaming HD video on fast patrol boats, wheeled vehicles, high masts and towers.

Other D2 modular options include, built-in digital image stabilisation, 2-channel auto tracker and a wide choice of payload configurations . Depending on payload needs, D2 supports 2 independent 1000Base-T channels or a mix of analogue and digital formats. To simplify integration in IP based security networks, the Pan and Tilt unit features Ethernet control as well as legacy RS-422/RS-232 communications.

Motorised Pan and Tilt

Instro's motorised pan and tilt units are characterised by high performance designs with milliradian accuracy and repeatability for precise remote control of camera and sensor payloads. With payload capacities up to 100Kg and variants suitable for land, sea and vehicle use, Instro's platforms offer an economic solution for a wide range of security, surveillance and positioning applications.

For systems requiring additional capability, factory fitted configuration options include:

•Gyro Stabilisation, to automatically maintain sensor line of sight in the presence of disturbances

•Digital Image Stabilisation, to electronically remove high frequency video jitter

•Auto Tracking, to automatically follow moving objects in the field of view

•Marinisation, to protect the pan and tilt from the harsh environment of marine and coastal applications

When observing on the move, Instro's latest D2 platform has the dynamic performance to suit integration on fast patrol boats and vehicles and equip them with HD quality streaming digital video at gigabit speeds.

Control of Instro's motorised platforms is either by using Instro's standard serial RS-422 interface, or on selected models via Ethernet.
