Antech Hydraulics – Mast / Reel / HPU
Mast / Reel / Power Unit System
To design a system capable of elevating an infra-red night sight camera to a height of 9.0 metres with rapid lowering in the event of enemy contact. The mast was to operate on a moving armoured MOD vehicle.
Antech project managed the design and build of the entire unit. Antech sourced a synchronised telescopic cylinder, designed and manufactured a DC power unit and developed as a sub contract a reel winding assembly purpose built including sophisticated slip assembly to take all the neccesary
camera image/pan and tilt functions.
The three aspects were fully installed and commisioned by Antech UK.
