Introduction

Introduction

The AXB-PT10PosiTrack 10,AXB-PT15PosiTrack 15, andAXB-PT30PosiTrack 30 Camera Controllers(FIG. 1) are camera/lens controllers used for precisecamera-positioningapplications. Each PosiTrack unit supports both AXlink andRS-232control protocols and connects directly to an AXlink network. All controllers containon-boardintelligence for consistent motion and lens control. TheAXB-PT10andAXB-PT15Camera Controllers use identical connectors and camera mounts but support different camera/lens weights (refer to theSpecifications section for more detailed information).
