Caracal - Generic

Caracal pedestal is small, light and designed to be carried easily by a single person.

This small, yet robust, pedestal includes all the benefits of our precision positioning mechanisms incorporated into a small economic package.

Due to its size to weight ratio, the Caracal is capable of supporting payloads of up to 40kg while maintaining perfect precision and movement. Built-in control electronics and software provide a precise, smooth motion at all speeds, while an integrated slipring allows a continuous rotation of the yaw axis.

Our SELF-LOCK-SYSTEM will guarantee that you save your position even in case of a power off.
