Motor E1 (F9900) for single axis control of a Nodal Ninja Mecha system and a Mecha controller (F9910) for controlling the motor. Supports Nodal Ninja R1, R10, R20, Turntable, NN3 MK1, NN3 MK2, NN3 MK3 (heads sold separately).
Supports smaller cameras and mid-range DSLRs. Maximum supported load for the Mecha E1 is 2kg including camera, lens and panoramic head. Later versions will follow allowing for larger panoramic heads (NN6, M series) and heavier cameras and of shooting at longer focal lengths.
The manufacturer states that the rotator has been tested thoroughly for the load specified and we believe it will outlast 100,000 panos (test sequence for 28mm eq. focal length: 12 columns x 3 rows + zenith and nadir). Overloading or using in unusual angles (e.g. upside down) will reduce the lifetime of bearing and gear. Worn bearing will introduce more play in rotator and cause instability. Worn gear will significantly increase backlash and reduce accuracy and precision of rotator. Bearing and gear are classified as consumables and not covered by warranty. Customers are liable for the cost of labor and parts for the replacement (approx 60 EUR).
By purchasing this product you agree that this product is sold as BETA limited first release before official introduction to market (hence reduced price). Each unit is a tested prototype but there can be bugs in unforeseen circumstances or environments. If your unit has a fault that significantly negatively influences its function or safety we will replace it under warranty. We welcome and feedback on software and user interface as it may be frequently updated after purchase.
Total weight: 492g.
Support cameras up to 2kg or 1.25kg at 8cm from pivot, 1Nm output torque.
Mecha Motor E1 Key Features:
The motorized rotator head will support up to 2kg vertical loading and 1Nm turning torque. It is lightweight, quiet and power efficient. Together with the Single Axis Controller (F9910), it automates the panning axis of Nodal Ninja R1/10/20 series as well as the Nodal Ninja 3 (MK1 to MK3), RS1 and RS2 series. It is NOT recommended for larger Nodal Ninjas NN6 and M Series (stronger Mecha Rotators to accommodate greater weights are to be introduced later). Together with a "dual axis" controller (also to be introduced), two E1 rotators can be added to motorize Nodal Ninja MK3 pan and tilt axes for multi-row application.
- Supports one Mecha E1 rotator (controller for two motors will be introduced later)
- Compact controller with built in battery and charger.
- Two NCR18650GA 7.2v 3300mAh high capacity batteries.

- 3 buttons to run presets stored in the memory, which can be configured via the web page inteface.
- 5 LEDs to indicate the remaing battery capacity.
- CAM port with opto-isolated trigger for focus and shutter release. The CAM port is compatible with many 2.5mm stereo remote shutter cords.

- Also suitable for NN3 with lower axis motorized - for rotating around, dual axis controller that includes tilting up and down to be announced soon
Remote Shutter Release Cable (CAM port)
As a special offer this cable is provided free of charge to all Mecha preorders. You must select your desired option in order notes or contact us with your selection before shipping of your order otherwise we will ship your order without a cable. The cable ensures camera triggering and focus lock. You can see the list of options here: Mecha remote shutter cable. Note that we don't list compatible cameras. The reference is the manufacturer's original remote. The CAM port on the Mecha is compatible with many 2.5mm 3rd party stereo remote shutter cords.
Shutter Release Confirmation (under development)
This feature makes use of the signal from the hot shoe during exposure as a confirmation of shutter release. High end cameras have PC Sync port. A PC sync cable will be included free of charge for each Mecha Controller (no need to ask for it). For cameras without PC Sync port, an optional Hot Shoe to PC Sync adapter is needed. As a special offer for pre-order customers, this adapter can also be included free of charge if you ask for it in order notes. In that case please let us know your selected type from the options listed at the dedicated page: Shutter Confirmation Hotshoe for the Nodal Ninja Mecha. If you don't select a hotshoe your order will ship without it (we will assume you are not insterested in this feature).
