San Diego, CA – December 4, 2008
Sidus Solutions, Inc’s SS250 pan & tilt recently passed a benchmark test with flying colors for a major subsea acoustics provider. Within a small footprint, the SS250 can position heavy loads with ease and high accuracy. Delivering a whopping 65 ft-lbs of maximum torque, the pan & tilt successfully provided precision positioning of a 50 lb sonar system while subjected to currents over 8.6 knots. The SS250 features a unique module design and internal pressure compensation capable of operation to as deep as 3000 meters. The SS250 gains its dependability and ease of maintenance through the integration of reversible synchronous motors, extremely low backlash harmonic drives, and precision ball bearings. Other standard features include adjustable speeds up to 35 deg/s and digital encoder feedback remotely accessible via an RS232 or RS485 interface. The unit can be customized with customer selectable hard stops and subsea connector configurations.
Sidus Solutions, Inc. (SSI), headquartered in San Diego, California, is an integrated systems provider of robust security and surveillance systems and services for numerous worldwide businesses in the heavy commercial, industrial, and oil and gas markets. The impressive test data and compact, rugged design of the pan & tilt resulted in a large contract awarded to Sidus for several SS250 units.
