DC motors on the trail of wild animals.

maxon DC motors are used in a digital camera specially designed for making documentaries capturing herds of lions, elephants or wild antelope.

Documentaries are large productions utilising as small a team as possible. The ARRI AMIRA has been especially designed for single operator use. What sets this camera apart is the DC motors made by maxon inside, that ensure there are no chromatic aberrations (or “color fringing”) in the recordings. maxon RE8 motors with MR encoder and GP8 A planetary gearhead were specifically selected because of the small size and compact drive unit that fits within the camera casing. The brushed DC motors drive spindles in the sensor assembly that moves the filter into place in front of the image sensor and back again.
