MPT-RF Positioner

Literature

The MPT-RF series of Pan & Tilt Positioners employ RF Rotary Joint technology for management of radio frequency signals along with the enhanced electronics offered with our latest generation of control electronics.. These rugged antenna positioners support a wide range of antenna sizes, and utilize integrated dual isolated channels of RF pass-through signals. Auxiliary sensor loads, such as visible and/or thermal cameras, can be mounted with the antenna and are completely supported. Typical applications include UAV tracking/telemetry, satellite communications, radar, GPS and many others.

MPT Positioners are also equipped with an integrated Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS). This provides intelligence to users regarding the condition of payloads, allowing for preventative maintenance to extend the life of critical equipment. An embedded web server enables easy discovery and control of all positioners and integrated components on a network. Expanded velocity control offers the MPT finer resolution of speed and acceleration control, ultimately improving tracking and scaling applications. Users will enjoy the capacity of multiple configurable communication ports for convenient payload integration and communication as well as the ability to feed GPS location data for either static or mobile applications. Finally, if there is a feature or option not available that is critical for your application, please reach out to our development team for customization options.
