Our DDP155 Pan system is perfect for the rotation of cameras or sensors on a flat surface. One of the biggest problems with servos is they can not always handle a heavy side load even though they have the power to rotate your attachment. The system can even make the $9.00, nylon geared HS-311 servo an extremely rigid panning platform. As you can see from the pictures and schematic, this system mounts the servo away from the ABS top plate via 4 aluminum standoffs. By incorporating an external ball bearing in the ABS plate ensures that whatever the servo is set to rotate will be extremely rigid side to side. Once mounted, simply use the 1/4” bore clamping hub to assist in attaching your camera or sensor to the ball bearing supported shaft. The kit comes with a 4.25” diameter, 1/4” thick ABS top plate. The plastic can be easily drilled or tapped for various needs. Kit includes all hardware and detailed instructions. Servo shown is not included and must purchased separately. Patented
The drive plate is set to accept any standard size Hitec or Futaba servo. The output shaft is supported by a precision 1/4” ball bearing for extremely smooth operation even with heavy loads.
The top plate bolts to the 1/4” clamping hub. It is then clamped to the 1/4” output shaft coming from the servo.
Pictured above is the top plate attached to the bottom drive plate. Once attached, the system is extremely rigid.
The rigidity of the system comes from the spacing of the servo and the drive plate along with our patented broached servo shaft horn. Once the shaft is aligned with the top ball bearing, the system is ultra smooth and very robust.
The system is now ready to be attached to the cylindrical ABS enclosure.

The system is slightly shorter than a soda can.
