Camera Lifting Rig – Built for National Treasure II
This system was built to raise and lower camera systems of up to 150Kg over a range of 1.8m (6 feet) in as little as 3 seconds using the vehicle’s electrical supply. Control is by means of a simple position knob and a speed knob. The control system was entirely housed in the first aid compartment in the boot of the Toureg and is now in Peli-Case. (PC shown only required for changing initial system set-up parameters.)
Mechanical Design: Aerospace Design Facilities
Motion Control / Software: DMI
We have also done the motion-control system for a smaller lifting rig primarily designed for small cars/quad bikes. The entire drive unit sits in a Peli 1450 case, and is controlled by Preston FIZ remotely.
