Hercules Motorized Drive Unit


Hercules Motorized Drive Unit: The Hercules drive unit is the primary component of the Rollocam product line. This piece serves as the motor component of whatever setup the operator chooses to work with and functions by moving the base wheel in the selected direction to provide motion.

The drive unit can be used in conjunction with all of the accessories offered by Rollocam in order to change the user experience depending on the desired shot and camera type being used. The drive unit can be set to operate in either direction (left or right), in two different modes (rolling or stop motion) and at five different speeds (.1, .2, .3, .4, or .5 inches per second).

The base wheel can be swapped out depending on the desired wheel size (to further manipulate the speed by essentially doubling the above rates) or whether or not the unrestricted free-bearing wheel is needed (for hand-controlled or natural movement).

The drive unit is equipped with a magnet sensor that will trigger direction change when used with the included magnets. The drive unit uses LED light indicators to designate the selections being made. Included is the drive unit, the small and large base wheels, and a wrench to swap base wheel out.

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.

Programmable settings: (when using small wheel set)

  • Continuous speed = .1, .2, .3, .4, .5 inch/sec. (2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5 mm/sec.)
  • Index increment (time lapse) = .01, .025, .05, .125, .25 in (.3, .6, 1.3, 3, 6.3mm)
  • Cycle time (time lapse) = 1, 5, 10, 30, 60 sec.

For large wheel set, the speed and index increment is approximately double.
