TotalDrive™ Integrated Positioning Mechanism

A Highly Compact and Cost Effective Positioning Mechanism

TotalDrive is an enhancement of the iBLDC Positioning Mechanism where the two motors have been integrated in a pair with a single set of intelligent DSP drive electronics driving both Pan and Tilt motors.

The TotalDrive mechanism is a highly compact and cost effective solution with the same performance and features as the Titan™ or LetoiBLDC Positioning Mechanism packaged in a very easy to integrate solution. The implementation shown has 120 cm² of free space on the pan PCBA to accommodate client specific, custom, electronics providing flexibility and very rapid time to market for new PTZ camera solutions.
