  The Foveal Mounts with Pan and Tilt Angle Protractors for small-to-medium-to-large sized "box" cameras feature:
  • Read Out Pan and Tilt Angles to the nearest degree.

  • The Protractor Dials can be repositioned to the 4 quadrants; 0, 90, 180, and 270 degrees.

  • The Indexes can be repositioned to either the front or back side of the mount.

  • Fine Adjustment of all axes.

  • Individual axis lock down making adjustment easier and more precise, and preventing accidental change.

  • Sturdy construction.

Motivation

A customer wanted a Foveal Fine-adjustment Mount that could be easily reset to specific positions.  "We want the operator to dial it in to the approximate position, say a degree or so, and then tweak it using the camera monitor."

We now offer both the Fine-adjustment Mounts and the Rigid Mounts with Protractor Dials on the Pan and Tilt Axes, so the angles can be read out.

The addition of the Pan Dial raises the mount 1/16 inch.

 

Features

These mounts are identical to their cousins:

and share all their features, plus the added ability to read the Pan and Tilt angles to the nearest degree.

Specifications, CAD Files

Each of the Pan and Tilt Protractor Dial mounts is virtually identical to its dial-less cousin.  As can be seen in these photographs, the 3-inch diameter Tilt Protractor Dial is 1 inch wider than the 2-inch wide camera platform and 1 inch wider than the 2-inch wide Rectangular and L-bracket Mounting Plates.  Also, the Pan Protractor Dial raises the mount 1/16 inch more above the base plate.

What are the differences between the FM1_2a_PTD and the FM2_2a_PTD?

First, the position and spacing of the two slots for the camera mounting screws are not the same.  In the FM1_2a_PTD, one of the slots is centered over the Pan pivot.  In the FM2_2a_PTD, the Pan pivot centerline goes between the two slots.

Second, in the FM1_2a_PTD, the slots are three-quarters of an inch apart.  In the FM2_2a_PTD, the slots are 20 millimeters apart.

The FM1_2a_PTD works well with most cameras with 1/4-20 mounting sockets.  The FM2_2a_PTD works well with some cameras with M6 metric mounting sockets.  Of course, you can drill the anodized aluminum or create an adaptor plate.  Or call us and we can discuss a custom design to match your specific needs.

Camera Mounting Alternatives

Please note that the Pan Protractor Dial is always between the tilt table support and the tilt table.  Most Foveal Mounts can be reassembled into several different configurations.  See the Fine-adjustment Mount and 2- and 3-Axis Rigid Camera Mount web pages for examples.

In the case of the FM (Fine-adjustment Mounts) with Pan and Tilt Dials, the configurations that would have the tilt table hanging outside the tilt table support are not possible as delivered. We can provide that configuration as a special order. 

If you need to verify a particular configuration, please contact us.
