4-axis gyro stabilised multi gimbal

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


The all new four axis multi sensor gyro stabilised OTUS U-250 gimbal reaches an entirely new level of stabilisation due to a combination of purpose-built high-bandwidth torque motors and geared motors.

All electronics required for the advanced digital control fits within the unit shell. The user only has to connect external power, a video monitor and a joystick.

A three dimensional micro-mechanical IMU and a laser range finder mounted directly on the optical bench, allows for advanced features like geo-location and geo-positioning, provided an external heading source is connected to the OTUS-U250.

The powerful digital servo controller of the OTUS-U250 is even capable of providing enough computational power to drive optional features like vehicle control and navigation.
