Pan limits?

 A pre-sales question: If a PTZ OPtics camera were mounted on a pole hanging from the center of the ceiling of a horse arena, could it follow a horse around and around and around in the same direction?  In other words, is there a pan limit, or can you pan thousands of degrees in the same direction (which would probably require slip ring connections to T, Z, and signal)?

Hi Ed,

Excellent question and we'll be happy to assist.

The PTZOptics cameras do not feature a slip ring and thus would not be capable of continuously following a horse, or object, as it moves around a track.

We typically see these scenarios deployed with multiple PTZ cameras into and out of the bends OR

With multiple ZCams spaced appropriately to provide a full 360 degree view all of the time at a specific zoom level.

If we can be of any additional assistance with your research please don;t hesitate to return to the forums.
