Pan and Tilt Positioner/Unit

Pan tilt positioner, also known as pan tilt head/pan tilt unit (or pth, for short), which is a three-dimensional rotary mechanical & electronic devices, have been widely used in many fields, typically the CCTV video surveillance industry as part of various integrated video solutions.

Over 15 years ago, BIT CCTV developed and manufactured our 1st pan tilt positioner unit and made continuous, multi-angle CCTV video surveillance possible instead of a fixed camera picture at all time. With the progress and development of video surveillance industry, our pan tilt units have been upgraded from time to time with the most advanced technologies like preset position, cruising track, pattern tour, guard location, position query/feedback, absolute angle control, worm/gear drive transmission, extra slow speed for long range video solutions, high accuracy and corrosion resistant coating powder, IP66/67 ingress protection etc.

Today, as a reputable surveillance camera supplier we are offering our clients worldwide a wide range of pan tilt heads, small-medium-large  sizes, payload capacity from 8kg to 80kg with many advanced features mentioned above.

To make sure that the most suitable pan tilt head will be chosen for your system/solution among our pan tilt products line, it is highly suggested to send us an email to with your detailed technical requirements and specifications, so that you will get your perfectly customized pan tilt head for your solution/project.

Advantages of Motorized Pan and Tilt Heads/Units


Motorized pan tilt units are widely used in many situations because of a few advantages compared to traditional CCTV camera that wider view angle to cover most critical spots, no blind area.


Based on advanced absolute positioning via Pelco P/D protocoal, many special surveillance requirements can be met.


For any unique surveillance systems, custom service is always available to build the motorized pan tilt user may need while most exisiting products can't do.


It is easy to mount a motorized pan tilt camera with the guide.

Motorized Pan and Tilt Camera Heads/Units System

Motorized pan & tilt video heads are equipped with a motorized pan tilt camera mount for carrying the camera to rotate in both horizontal and vertical directions. A motorized camera head on the PTZ enables the camera to take pictures from multiple angles. Two electric motors are installed in the pan/tilt. The angle of horizontal and vertical rotation can be adjusted through the limit switch. Using programming control with sensor components and HD-SDI output interface, real-time, lossless output can be achieved with the highest resolution.

How to Mount a Heavy Duty Motorized Pan Tilt Head/ Positioner?

  • Remove the lower cover of the pan tilt units and install the integrated motorized pan and tilt with inch screws.

  • Connect the red and black (mostly) wires on the pan/tilt decoder board to the power supply of the camera, the red positive and black negative.

  • Connect the marked zoom (Z) and common (c) on the pan/tilt decoder board. Generally, you don't need to connect to focus (camera auto focus)

  • After connecting, control the three wires outside the motorized pan tilt head/ positioner, video (two-way for docking), power supply (24V AC, regardless of positive and negative) (a\b is both positive and negative)

  • According to the PTZ manual, set the address code and baud rate on the decoder board. The protocol does not need to be controlled. The general protocol decoder can support it.

  • After installation, it is best to take the engineering treasure or hard record to try it and install it on the wall.

FAQ of Motorized Pan and Tilt Heads/Units

What is motorized pan & tilt video heads/units? + -
