Sidus SS320 Underwater Titanium Rotator Assembly

SS320 Titanium Rotator

The Sidus SS320 underwater titanium rotator assembly is designed in a compact modular configuration and uses high quality precision ball bearings, low backlash gear drives and motors. The high output brushless, synchronous electric motors can operate reliably even after thousands of cycles. 

The SS320 deepsea titanium rotator assembly can operate in any type of harsh environment due to its corrosion resistant titanium design which prevents rusting and water ingestion. These compact precision positioning units can operate at a depth of 10,000 feet with internal compensation, (Up to 20,000 ft (6000 m) with external compensation) and are capable of generating impressive amounts of torque.

Communication is supported through Analog, RS232, RS422 and RS485 protocols. Users can choose from a range of input connectors.

Modifications can be made to include feedback circuits and limit switches for applications where rotational information is vital. Optional Position Limits: +/-175° Pan, +/-85° Tilt (other configurations available)
