HELPING YOU HELP YOUR CUSTOMERS
Here at Sohn Systems, we know that you are committed to giving your customers the best possible products. We are, too. We are developing an advanced quick-connect gimbal/mount adapter for commercial drones, like the ones you manufacture.
Our system will use our patented tool-free, fastener-free connector technology, U-Dot. Add our adapter to any gimbal or mount, and it becomes a quick-connect component. Your customers can easily swap out all the different cameras and other sensors they need, INSTANTLY.
The U-Dot design gives you a very strong positive lock, because the flanges on the U’s hook into the flanges on the Dot’s on the other piece. The connection can only be broken by sliding the pieces apart, and that is blocked by a locking bar. The electrical connections are molded into the U-Dot pieces, like a printed circuit board, eliminating the wiring harness.
ADVANTAGES OF U-DOT
|Each gimbal has a different mounting configuration||Standardized mounting|
|Requires many, small screws or bolts||Requires no fasteners|
|Requires the right tool||Requires no tools|
|Takes time to attach||Instantly attaches and detaches|
|Vibration can cause screws to loosen||Mechanical integrity is built in to the design|
|Requires wires and connectors||Has the wiring and connectors built in|
