This custom tracked robot is our solution for going into tight spaces with low clearance height. It includes a pan and tilt camera with 30X optical zoom. The robot comes programmed, fully assembled, and ready to run right out of the box.

The robot itself is extremely rugged and well-built. The tracks are molded without (no splice), are axle mounted, and direct driven by powerful right-angle 42mm gear motors. The chassis is made of aluminum, which is all cut using our CNC Plasma table for an exact fit-up and then hand welded.

The robot has a custom PTZ camera mounted on the lid with 360 degrees of pan and tilt ranging from -10 to +90 degrees. The camera has a 30X optical zoom. All the camera functions are controlled from the tablet wirelessly as you stream the video. The video feed can be recorded on the tablet and still pictures can be taken for reviewing.

  • MLT-42 Robot with PTZ camera

  • Touchscreen Tablet: Tablet software displays camera feed and contains all robot controls, including virtual joysticks for drive and camera pan/tilt. Portable and lightweight.
  • Enclosed Case Remote: Enclosed in a durable hard plastic case. Spring-loaded joysticks for drive and camera controls offer the operator better feedback and more precise control of the robot. They also make it easier to operate the robot while wearing gloves. LCD Touchscreen displays camera feed and controls other functions of the robot.

These controllers can connect using two different methods, wireless and tethered. The WiFi control system is great for operating the robot up to 300 feet away with a direct line of sight.

A tethered system is necessary for areas with obstructions, underground sections, or pipes. Our tether system includes a spool for easy deployment and cable management.

  • WiFi only system: (Touchscreen Tablet or Enclosed Case Remote)

  • 500ft Tethered System: (Enclosed Case Remote)

If your application requires a different cable length than the options we have listed, please contact us.
