The Micro Scorpio Head is the smallest member of our family, designed to fill a blank in the market to offer a light and compact head with a very good quality of movements and possibilities. Comparing with the other Scorpio Heads, we have simplified the mechanics (cables instead of HD slip rings) and the electronics (one main servo boards for both axes instead of one of each per axis and smaller driver boards) but without giving up the quality of movement and the payload capacities of the Scorpio products, the motors are the same that we use with the Mini Scorpio. This way we are not only able to reduce the cost and the price but also reducing the weight and dimensions. The head weights 6kg with a payload of 12kgs/27lbs with the smallest configuration or up to 25kgs/56lbs when mounting the cage and as per its modular design with the possibility to make it bigger, smaller, work over-slung, under-slung, inside position, outside position, centre position, offset position and many more….
We have also designed a new control that consist in a main module that incorporates a joystick and then accessories for Pan Bar and Hand wheels, this way there is no need to buy several controls, one single control adding the Pan bar or the Hand wheels kit. Also and as usual, this head is 100% compatible with the rest of the Scorpio products and with the possibility to be controlled wireless.
Another interesting characteristic is the new exchangeable crane mounts (very quick to mount and release) and the external commands in order to be able to operate the Micro Scorpio head and lenses from several cranes like theJimmy Jib, the ABC and Felix crane.
