The MX2 is a small, lightweight controller that packs a lot of punch. At 3"x4"x1.5" it fits right in your hand, but offers endless features for DIY motion control projects.
Note: this product does not include a power source, one must be purchased separately.
The MX2 supports two DC brushed motor axes directly using the
built-in motor drivers. An additional two axes of motion in pan and
tilt can be added simply by hooking up a Merlin Telescope Head to the
Hook any camera with a supported remote cable up to the MX2 and start shooting motion-integrated timelapse videos right away. No need for additional intervalometers or other electronics to synchronize the camera with the motion. Control every aspect of the exposure, including auto-focus and exposure on-camera or controlled by the MX2.
The MX2 can run all axes of motion in both continuous and interleaved
(shoot-move-shoot) modes. Complete control of the output motion
including ramping/feathering in the output video and delayed lead-ins
are possible with the MX2.
Auto-dim the screen, or disable it completely on a timer to reduce
power draw when shooting in the field. Advanced motor control reduces
power draw during continuous motion moves.
Interact with your environment, integrate with other systems and expand your capabilities. The MX2 is ready to take inputs and make changes to the program on the fly based on triggers from external sources. Switches, relays, and more can be used in conjunction with the MX2.
The MX2 is built around open-source electronics and firmware. Hack it, mod it, change the code, add new features - it's yours: you are free to experiment.
Note: A power source is NOT included. You must also purchase a battery or AC adapter to power the MX2.
