This video is a brief introduction to the Hig-Mover rotary actuator system. Additional videos provide more detailed info on system components mentioned here, such as the Hig-Hub bus master and our Windows and Android apps.
This video shows initial setup and testing of a new Hig-Mover actuator out of the box. We’ll show how to connect a basic system (with no Hig-Hub bus master), and how to do basic configuration, testing and tuning from our Windows app.
This video demonstrates a possible coffee bean material-handling application for the Hig-Mover system. Using the Hig-Hub bus master and our Scripty programming tool, John Higbie gives a step-by-step tutorial for sequencing actuator motions in response to digital sensor inputs.
This video is a step-by-step tutorial for the mechanical assembly of our pan-til-roll camera head system. The system is based on the Hig-Mover rotary actuators, together with a set of lightweight plastic elbows to connect the three actuators and mount a camera. While the tutorial is for a three-axis head, the components may also be configured as a two-axis, pan-tilt system. The next video will cover control and tuning of the head actuators.
Camera mounts present special constraints for smoothness and stability. This video will be of interest to anyone interested in controlling and tuning a multi-axis Hig-Mover system, especially with nested axes. The video is a step-by-step tutorial for controlling and tuning the Hig-Mover pan-tilt-roll camera head system with the Hig-Hub bus master. It covers connecting and configuring the three-axis joystick, and tuning the three Hig-Mover rotary actuators. It also discusses certain tuning difficulties that can arise in such systems, and how they can be dealt with.
