The Micro Scorpio Head offers a light, and compact head with simplified mechanics. Compared with the other Scorpio Heads it has cables instead of HD slip rings and for the electronics, one main servo boards for both axes instead of one of each per axis and smaller driver boards.
The mechanics do not compromise quality of movement or the payload capacities of the Scorpio products. The motors are the same as the Mini Scorpio. This reduces the weight and dimensions. The head weighs 6kg with a payload of 12kgwith the smallest configuration or up to 25kgwhen 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….
It was designed with a new control that consisted in a main module that incorporates a joystick and then accessories for Pan Bar and Hand wheels. This head is 100% compatible with all other Scorpio products and option to be wirelessly controlled.
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.
