Innovision Optics Camera Shuttle

Challenge

CNN Headline News in Atlanta needed a monorail pan and tilt camera for the newsroom.

Solution

Trust Automation designed and implemented a servo-controlled pan and tilt shuttle camera system. We developed a custom drive control system and dual control board for robotic control of the camera and shuttle. The system included program button that could be set to launch a pre-recorded move sequence for all five axes, simultaneously. The shuttle was capable of moving at 2 meters per second.

Results

This project was so successful for our customer and Trust Automation that we went on to develop many more shuttle systems including:
