Mo-Sys L40

Remote Head

2 axis remote head with back-pan option. Optimised for precise work with, e.g. an ALEXA and the biggest Optimo lens

Extremely strong and backlash-free drive units gives the operator instant and delay-free control. The precise gear drive enables flawless operation even with the biggest zoom lenses, unlike worm gear drives which can cause judder. The hole through the centre of the gear boxes for cable pass-through removes the need for slip-rings and makes it future proof for high bandwidth digital video. This also allows for tangle free direct cabling.

The L40 boasts a payload of incredible 40kg while only weighing 18kg. It is one of the lightest heads on the market with that strength. The space-frame design that was inspired by our experience working on the film Gravity, contributes to its lightness.

The L40 can be operated with a variety of input devices such as hand-wheels, pan-bar or joystick. The Button-Console interface provides controls for pan/tilt velocity adjustment, input smoothing and direction, user defined position limits with feathering and axes zeroing. It simplifies the operation of the head in remote-mode making it ideal for tech-less operation. Our intuitive touch screen console gives access to the extended extra features like back-pan.

Lightning quick to set up utilising a daisy-chain system of identical “Mo-Sys bus” cables, providing simplicity and redundancy of spares. The head features a quick release camera plate to enable fast camera installation. All head frame size adjustments are by quick release levers for quickness and ease of balancing and nodal point positioning.
