Positioners For Static Applications

Available in both over the top and side mount configurations, Bowler pan and tilts are extremely compact (just one third the volume of the Topper), externally robust and aesthetically designed to an IP68 rating. Providing a rugged and stable mobile camera platform for use in CCTV applications where a smaller size is required, the Bowler’s gearbox is engineered to provide higher gear ratios for lower speeds without costly modifications. The Continuous Rotation option incorporates an extruded aluminum column which houses the 24 way slip ring with 4 contacts per ring providing all necessary cable management and power. There is some spare capacity within the column which is fully adjustable to allow connector orientation

Positioners For Static Applications

On a prison wall looking in, or a power station looking out; on highways, at ports; in town and city centers; on police mobile surveillance units and for ANPR. In fact, for any application that calls for uncompromising quality, performance and maintenance free reliability, chances are you’ll spot the unmistakable profile of a Will-Burt pan & tilt positioner.

Available in three different sizes, all units can be configured for over the top or side mount operation. Bowler and Topper heads are also available with continuous rotation.

Our RX variants with internal controller cards which do away with the need for an external receiver and add electronic braking, limit stops and other functionality. Traditional control variants are available on all models.

In our small Bowler range we offer Heavy Duty unit, upgraded to handle the wear and tear of being mounted and operated on vehicles in motion.

For use in corrosive or clean environments, the medium sized Topper is available with a 316 stainless steel casing. If your application calls for the ultimate in maintenance free all-weather performance look no further.
