Hercules Motorized Drive Unit
Hercules Motorized Drive Unit: The Hercules drive unit is programmable and is the primary component of the Rollocam product line. It can be used with all of the accessories offered by Rollocam in order to change the user experience depending on the desired shot and camera type.
The drive unit can be set to operate in either direction (left or right) and in three different modes.
Continuous move - roll in both directions at 5 different speeds
Time lapse - indexes (move, stop, move) at 5 index distances and 5 time settings
Stop motion - use a magnet to command to move one step at a time
(For more information download instructional manual under support page)
The drive wheel can be swapped out between a small drive wheel and a large drive wheel to increase the speed range if needed. All drive units are equipped with an integrated magnet sensor that will trigger direction change automatically when used with the magnets (included) and the slider track (purchase separately).
In the stop motion setting, the Hercules will advance a preset distance every time a magnet is in close proximity to the sensor. In this mode, the user commands the Hercules to index whenever he chooses.
