General CineDrive Support

Kessler CineDrive® is a revolutionary multi-axis camera motion control system that puts the emphasis on filmmaker creativity. Never before has any one system provided the power and versatility required to give users multi-axis control that is configurable enough to meet the needs of filmmakers in the studio and in the field as elegantly as CineDrive® does. Its modular design allows users to custom build their system in a matter of minutes or months, depending on budget and use. Whether for live-action, time-lapse or stop-motion, CineDrive® was built to give users robust key-framable motion control at their fingertips. Its rock-solid engineering and innovative technology ensures it performs today and will continue to for years to come.

Intuitive Interface [iPad, Mac OS X, Windows 7 & 8]
As featuring rich and powerful as CineDrive is, the ease-of-use is just as impressive. Instead of wasting time on shoots trying to figure out the system, CineDrive's quick set-up and intuitive kOS software gives users the ability to set up incredibly complex motion control moves, with relatively litte learning in a short amount of time. Setting and editing key frames on-the-fly ensures ultimate control and flexibility in the system's workflow - eliminating wasted time for you and your clients.

Perfect Repeatability [100% Repeatable Moves]
When precision is essential, CineDrive delivers. Perfect repeatable motion control is a hallmark of the system. Don't waste time fixing in post what CineDrive can accomplish in camera.

Zero Backlash Wormdrive Motors
CineDrive® delivers superior flexibility and reliability when accomplishing motorized movements. Its high-precision worm drive system ensures ultra-smooth motion that is lash free, eliminating the need to calibrate for lash compensation and preventing the possibility of being back-driven, keeping your camera safe even if power is lost to the system. Unlike typical motors, the Kessler CineDrive® motor system is fully digitally encoded. This allows the motors to communicate precise position back to Kessler CineDrive®, making highly accurate motion control possible and repeatable time after time. CineDrive® uses high resolution motors for micro adjustments. Incremental control down to .000045 degrees at the motor shaft. If you want insane precision, the Kessler CineDrive® motors can deliver.

Modular Design
Each user has specific needs and CineDrive accommodates. Built for modular expansion, users have the ability to expand their system as their needs change. No matter if the job requires a 10 axis move or just 1, CineDrive can be configured to meet your demands.

CineDrive® Motor Explanation 
We recommend the 100 series motor for most applications. If lifting (vertically) more than 12.5 lbs., we would suggest a stronger motor - however you will lose top end speed. (100 series is 2X faster than the 200 series when at the same speed setting) 

This explanation pertains primarily to the use of our slider in a vertical or inclined configuration. 

Although the mechanical portion of the motor is the exact same as its analog elektraDRIVE counterpart, the way the motor is controlled is completely different. This means the way it performs will also be completely different. With our analog system, we would simply send pulses of energy to the motor and we would predict the position. This means that if you were performing a slow vertical/incline move where the pulse was far apart and you had a motor with a high enough gear ratio (e.g. 50:1 & 100:1), that could be back driven (reversed/fall) when not under power, the motor would drift back between pulses and throw off the “predicted” position. 

Now with the CineDrive® digital system we have a high resolution encoder that monitors exact position of the motor and will use the available power to hold that position. Because of this feature we can now recommend the higher geared motors for slow movements and still have the high speed, all the while, increasing the virtual/incline lift capacity. 

The one limiting factor is the one amp limit on the control board. The max limits you see listed by each motor is based off of the highest speed (highest current draw). If you as the user set the speed on the motor to a lesser/slower amount the a motor will be able to lift more. For example, the 50:1 motor will kick the current limit switch when lifting more than 7.5 lbs. at full speed, but if you set the max motor speed to 50% you will be able lift 15 lbs. because at half the speed you will not draw enough power to kick the current limit switch. 

Please keep in mind that if you do chose a motor that can be back driven, if you have a power loss to the system, your camera can possibly back drive (reverse/fall) rapidly and damage could be possible.

Pan and Tilt Motor Options
The 27:1 high speed brick option provides fast motions of up to 106 degrees per second, ideal for action shots, over cranked slow motion or ultra quiet operation at slower speeds. Because of the faster gearing, torque is reduced so it is advised to keep your camera setup under 12 lbs. (on center of gravity) in horizontal use.

The 50:1 high torque brick option provides nearly 2 times the torque of the 27:1 high speed brick and is recommended when the pan/tilt head is used at an incline (vertical slider orientations). Increased gear reduction results in motions of 54 degrees per second and the ability to handle up to 25 lb. camera rigs (on center of gravity).

CineDrive Operating Voltage Range
• 11.9VDC MIN to 16VDC MAX


Dreams do come true!Review by Jonathan Ellison
This rig is awesome! It is a huge amount of functionality jam-packed into a small, inexpensive package. True, at this point, it's still in a "pre-release" stage... but the software and support is only getting better. I've also gotten personal feedback from the team at Kessler about issues I was having... on the very same day that I contacted them. I couldn't be happier, unless the new parts and software came out even quicker!
