Description

本発明は、例えば、デジタルカメラ等の撮像装置をパン方向およびチルト方向に回転動作させる雲台機能付きクレードルに関する。   The present invention relates to a cradle with a pan / tilt function that rotates an imaging apparatus such as a digital camera in a pan direction and a tilt direction.
デジタルカメラ等の撮像装置の撮影方向をパン方向およびチルト方向に回転動作させる駆動源を備えた雲台機能付きクレードルがある(特許文献1および2参照)。   There is a cradle with a pan head function that includes a drive source that rotates an imaging direction of an imaging apparatus such as a digital camera in a pan direction and a tilt direction (see Patent Documents 1 and 2).
近年、撮影機能の性能が向上するにつれて撮像装置の容積が大型化する一方で、撮像装置の可動部分の小型化および雲台機能付きクレードルの小型化を図って、持ち運びや設置が簡単で、利便性の良い雲台機能付きクレードルが望まれている。
特許3336698号公報 特開2001−223919号公報
In recent years, the capacity of the imaging device has increased as the performance of the imaging function has improved, while the movable part of the imaging device has been reduced in size and the cradle with a pan head function has been reduced in size, making it easy to carry and install. A cradle with a pan head function is desired.
Japanese Patent No. 3336698 JP 2001-223919 A
ところで、通常、雲台機能付きクレードルは、撮像装置をパン方向およびチルト方向に回転動作させるために、それぞれ独立した2つの駆動モータを備えている。この場合、チルト用の駆動モータは、パン方向の回転動作の際、撮像装置と共にパン方向に回転する。   Incidentally, the cradle with a pan head function normally includes two independent drive motors for rotating the imaging device in the pan direction and the tilt direction. In this case, the tilt drive motor rotates in the pan direction together with the imaging device during the rotation operation in the pan direction.
従って、チルト用駆動モータのパン方向の回転が妨げられないように、回転軌道上とは異なる位置にパン用の駆動モータを配置しなければならない。また、パン用駆動モータは、撮像装置のみでなくチルト用駆動モータの質量も考慮したトルクが必要となる。   Accordingly, the panning drive motor must be arranged at a position different from the rotation trajectory so that rotation of the tilting drive motor in the panning direction is not hindered. In addition, the pan drive motor requires a torque that takes into account the mass of the tilt drive motor as well as the imaging device.
このため、撮像装置の可動部分とパン用駆動モータとが大型化するとともに、2つの駆動モータの制御が複雑になる。また、チルト用駆動モータへの電気配線も煩雑となり、パン方向およびチルト方向の回転動作の高速度化にも限界がある。   For this reason, the movable part of the image pickup apparatus and the pan driving motor are enlarged, and the control of the two driving motors is complicated. Also, the electrical wiring to the tilt drive motor becomes complicated, and there is a limit to increasing the speed of the rotation operation in the pan direction and the tilt direction.
そこで、本発明は、撮像装置の可動部分と駆動手段との小型化を図ることができるとともに、2つの駆動手段の制御を簡易にすることができる雲台機能付きクレードルを提供することを目的とする。また、本発明は、駆動手段への配線を簡易にすることができるとともに、パン方向およびチルト方向の回転動作の高速度化を実現することができる雲台機能付きクレードルを提供することを目的とする。   SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION Accordingly, an object of the present invention is to provide a cradle with a pan / tilt head function that can reduce the size of a movable part and a driving unit of an imaging apparatus and can easily control two driving units. To do. Another object of the present invention is to provide a cradle with a pan head function that can simplify the wiring to the driving means and can realize a high speed rotation operation in the pan direction and the tilt direction. To do.
上記目的を達成するために、本発明の雲台機能付きクレードルは、撮像装置を支持する支持台座を備え、該支持台座に支持された前記撮像装置の撮影方向をパン方向およびチルト方向に回転動作させる雲台機能付きクレードルにおいて、第1の駆動手段と、該第1の駆動手段の出力軸に設けられ、前記第1の駆動手段の回転駆動力を伝達する第1の伝達部材と、前記第1の駆動手段と対向する位置に配置された第2の駆動手段と、該第2の駆動手段の出力軸に設けられ、前記第2の駆動手段の回転駆動力を伝達する第2の伝達部材と、前記第1の駆動手段および前記第2の駆動手段の出力軸に対して直交する前記支持台座の回転軸に設けられ、前記第1の伝達部材および前記第2の伝達部材に係合する第3の伝達部材と、を備え、前記支持台座の回転軸をパン方向の回転中心とし、互いに同軸上に配置された前記第1の駆動手段および前記第2の駆動手段の出力軸をチルト方向の回転中心とした、ことを特徴とする。   In order to achieve the above object, a cradle with a pan head function according to the present invention includes a support base that supports an imaging apparatus, and the imaging direction of the imaging apparatus supported by the support base is rotated in the pan direction and the tilt direction. In the cradle with a pan head function, the first drive means, a first transmission member provided on an output shaft of the first drive means, for transmitting the rotational driving force of the first drive means, and the first A second driving means disposed at a position facing the first driving means, and a second transmission member provided on the output shaft of the second driving means for transmitting the rotational driving force of the second driving means. And a rotating shaft of the support base orthogonal to the output shafts of the first driving means and the second driving means, and engages with the first transmission member and the second transmission member. A third transmission member; and the support base Of the rotation axis as the rotation center in the pan direction, and the rotation center output shaft of the tilt direction of the first drive means and said second drive means being disposed coaxially with each other, it is characterized.
本発明によれば、2つの駆動手段の合計トルクを利用して撮像装置をパン方向およびチルト方向に回転動作させることができるので、2つの駆動手段の制御を簡易にすることができる。   According to the present invention, the imaging device can be rotated in the pan direction and the tilt direction by using the total torque of the two drive means, so that the control of the two drive means can be simplified.
また、2つの駆動手段は、パン方向の回転動作の際に撮像装置と共にパン方向に回転することはなく、また、チルト方向の回転動作時では、撮像装置のみの回転モーメントとなる。このため、撮像装置の可動部分と2つの駆動手段との小型化を図ることができるとともに、駆動手段への配線を簡易にすることができ、さらに、パン方向およびチルト方向の回転動作の高速度化を実現することができる。   Further, the two driving means do not rotate in the pan direction together with the imaging device during the rotation operation in the pan direction, and become a rotation moment of only the imaging device during the rotation operation in the tilt direction. For this reason, it is possible to reduce the size of the movable part of the image pickup device and the two driving means, simplify the wiring to the driving means, and further increase the rotational speed in the pan and tilt directions. Can be realized.

The rotation center axis of the bevel gear 22 (output shaft of the drive motor 21) and the rotation center axis of the bevel gear 24 (output shaft of the drive motor 23) are arranged coaxially.
可動カバー部材17は、鉛直方向に位置した状態での支持台座13の回転軸を中心に回動自在に設けられ、駆動モータ21,23の取付部分と、該部分の両側に配置された略扇形状の両翼部とを備えて、該両翼部が本体カバー部材14と重なっている。   The movable cover member 17 is provided so as to be rotatable about the rotation axis of the support base 13 in a state of being positioned in the vertical direction. The movable cover member 17 is attached to the mounting portions of the drive motors 21 and 23 and substantially fans arranged on both sides of the portions. Both wings are shaped to overlap the main body cover member 14.
可動カバー部材18は、可動カバー部材17に取り付けられた駆動モータ23の出力軸を中心に回動自在に設けられ、略球形状の一部が本体カバー部材14と可動カバー部材19とに重なっている。   The movable cover member 18 is provided so as to be rotatable about the output shaft of the drive motor 23 attached to the movable cover member 17, and a part of a substantially spherical shape overlaps the main body cover member 14 and the movable cover member 19. Yes.
可動カバー部材19は、支持台座13の回転軸を回転自在に保持して、駆動モータ21の出力軸を中心に回動自在に設けられ、略リング形状の一部が本体カバー部材14と可動カバー部材18とに重なっている。   The movable cover member 19 is rotatably provided around the output shaft of the drive motor 21 while holding the rotation shaft of the support base 13 so as to be rotatable, and a part of the substantially ring shape is provided with the main body cover member 14 and the movable cover. It overlaps with the member 18.
また、雲台機能付きクレードル11の底部には、電気的機能をつかさどるメイン電気基板26が設けられている。駆動モータ21とメイン電気基板26とがフレキシブルケーブル27を介して電気的に接続され、駆動モータ23とメイン電気基板26とがフレキシブルケーブル28を介して電気的に接続されている。   In addition, a main electric board 26 that controls an electric function is provided at the bottom of the cradle 11 with a pan head function. The drive motor 21 and the main electric board 26 are electrically connected via a flexible cable 27, and the drive motor 23 and the main electric board 26 are electrically connected via a flexible cable 28.
次に、図3を参照して、撮像装置12のパン方向の回転動作について説明する。   Next, the rotation operation in the pan direction of the imaging device 12 will be described with reference to FIG.
駆動モータ21の出力軸を該出力軸側から見て時計回り(矢印M1cw方向)に回転させるとともに、駆動モータ23の出力軸を該出力軸側から見て時計回り(矢印M2cw方向)に駆動モータ21と同一速度で回転させる。すると、傘歯車22と傘歯車24と傘歯車25との噛み合せにより、撮像装置12が装着された支持台座13は、支持台座13の回転軸を回転中心として、パン方向(矢印P1方向)に回転動作する。   The output shaft of the drive motor 21 is rotated clockwise (arrow M1cw direction) when viewed from the output shaft side, and the output motor of the drive motor 23 is rotated clockwise (arrow M2cw direction) when viewed from the output shaft side. Rotate at the same speed as 21. Then, by the meshing of the bevel gear 22, the bevel gear 24, and the bevel gear 25, the support pedestal 13 to which the imaging device 12 is mounted rotates in the pan direction (arrow P <b> 1 direction) about the rotation axis of the support pedestal 13. Operate.
なお、撮像装置12が装着された支持台座13を、矢印P1方向とは逆方向のパン方向に回転動作させる場合は、駆動モータ21および駆動モータ23の各出力軸を、それぞれの出力軸側から見て反時計回りに同一速度で回転させればよい。   When the support base 13 on which the imaging device 12 is mounted is rotated in the pan direction opposite to the direction of the arrow P1, the output shafts of the drive motor 21 and the drive motor 23 are connected from the respective output shaft sides. Just rotate counterclockwise at the same speed.
次に、図4を参照して、撮像装置12のチルト方向に回転動作について説明する。   Next, the rotation operation in the tilt direction of the imaging device 12 will be described with reference to FIG.
駆動モータ21の出力軸を該出力軸側から見て反時計回り(矢印M1ccw方向)に回転させるとともに、駆動モータ23の出力軸を該出力軸側から見て時計回り(矢印M2cw方向)駆動モータ21と同一速度で回転させる。すると、傘歯車22と傘歯車24と傘歯車25との噛み合せにより、撮像装置12が装着された支持台座13は、互いに同軸配置された駆動モータ21,23の出力軸を回転中心として、チルト方向(矢印T1方向)に回転動作する。   The output shaft of the drive motor 21 is rotated counterclockwise (arrow M1ccw direction) when viewed from the output shaft side, and the output shaft of the drive motor 23 is rotated clockwise (arrow M2cw direction) when viewed from the output shaft side. Rotate at the same speed as 21. Then, by the meshing of the bevel gear 22, the bevel gear 24, and the bevel gear 25, the support pedestal 13 on which the imaging device 12 is mounted has a tilt direction with the output shafts of the drive motors 21, 23 arranged coaxially as rotation centers. It rotates in the direction of arrow T1.
このとき、可動カバー部材18と可動カバー部材19とは、支持台座13に連動して、互いに同軸配置された駆動モータ21,23の出力軸を回転中心として回動する。かかる回動時には、可動カバー部材18と可動カバー部材19と本体カバー部材14との重なり部分により、雲台機能付きクレードル11の内部構造が露出することがない。   At this time, the movable cover member 18 and the movable cover member 19 rotate around the output shafts of the drive motors 21 and 23 arranged coaxially with each other in conjunction with the support base 13. During such rotation, the internal structure of the cradle 11 with a pan head function is not exposed due to the overlapping portion of the movable cover member 18, the movable cover member 19, and the main body cover member 14.
なお、撮像装置12が装着された支持台座13を矢印T1方向の逆方向のチルト方向に回転動作させる場合は、駆動モータ21を出力軸から見て時計回り回転させ、駆動モータ23を出力軸から見て反時計回りに駆動モータ21と同一速度で回転させればよい。   When the support base 13 on which the imaging device 12 is mounted is rotated in the tilt direction opposite to the arrow T1, the drive motor 21 is rotated clockwise as viewed from the output shaft, and the drive motor 23 is rotated from the output shaft. It may be rotated counterclockwise at the same speed as the drive motor 21.
次に、図5を参照して、撮像装置12のチルト方向およびパン方向の回転動作について説明する。   Next, with reference to FIG. 5, the rotation operation of the imaging device 12 in the tilt direction and the pan direction will be described.
図4に示すチルト方向の回転動作の後に、駆動モータ21を出力軸側から見て反時計回り(矢印M1ccw方向)に回転させ、駆動モータ23を出力軸側から見て反時計回り(矢印M2ccw方向)に駆動モータ21と同一速度で回転させる。すると、傘歯車22と傘歯車24と傘歯車25との噛み合せにより、撮像装置12が装着された支持台座13は、チルト方向に傾いた状態の支持台座13の回転軸を中心として、パン方向(矢印P2方向)に回転動作する。   After the rotation operation in the tilt direction shown in FIG. 4, the drive motor 21 is rotated counterclockwise (arrow M1ccw direction) when viewed from the output shaft side, and the drive motor 23 is counterclockwise (arrow M2ccw when viewed from the output shaft side). Direction) at the same speed as the drive motor 21. Then, the support pedestal 13 on which the imaging device 12 is mounted is meshed with the bevel gear 22, the bevel gear 24, and the bevel gear 25 so that the rotation direction of the support pedestal 13 tilted in the tilt direction is the pan direction ( It rotates in the direction of arrow P2.
なお、ここでは、チルト方向の回転動作の後に、パン方向に回転動作させる場合を説明したが、駆動モータ21と駆動モータ23との回転方向の組合せで、撮像装置12を装着した支持台座13をチルト方向とパン方向の複合方向に回転させることも可能である。   Here, the case where the rotation operation in the pan direction is performed after the rotation operation in the tilt direction has been described. However, the support base 13 on which the imaging device 12 is mounted is combined with the rotation direction of the drive motor 21 and the drive motor 23. It is also possible to rotate in the compound direction of the tilt direction and the pan direction.
また、駆動モータ21と駆動モータ23との両方の出力軸は同一速度での回転方向の組合せのため、簡単な機構で2つの駆動モータの合計トルクを利用することが可能となり、駆動モータ同士の制御も簡易となる。   In addition, since the output shafts of both the drive motor 21 and the drive motor 23 are combined in the rotational direction at the same speed, the total torque of the two drive motors can be used with a simple mechanism. Control is also simplified.
さらに、この実施の形態では、同一形状のギア比1:1の傘歯車としたが、撮像装置12の質量などを考慮してギア比を変更しても、傘歯車22と傘歯車24とが同一形状の傘歯車となるので、同様の効果が得られる。   Further, in this embodiment, the bevel gears having the same shape and a gear ratio of 1: 1 are used. However, even if the gear ratio is changed in consideration of the mass of the imaging device 12, the bevel gear 22 and the bevel gear 24 are Since the bevel gears have the same shape, the same effect can be obtained.
次に、図6を参照して、雲台機能付きクレードル11の撮像装置12のパン方向およびチルト方向の回転動作以外の機能を説明する。   Next, with reference to FIG. 6, functions other than the rotation operation in the pan direction and the tilt direction of the imaging device 12 of the cradle 11 with a pan head function will be described.
図6に示すように、雲台機能付きクレードル11の底部には、脚部31が設けられている。脚部31は、本体カバー部材14に対して出っ張り位置と引き込み位置との二つの位置へ垂直方向(図の上下方向)にスライド可能とされている。脚部31の上部には、傾斜状のカム部32が形成されている。また、本体カバー部材14の内側には、脚部31を引き込み位置に付勢するリフト脚戻りバネ33が取り付けられている。駆動モータ23には、脚部31のカム部32にカム係合する係合部34が設けられている。   As shown in FIG. 6, the leg part 31 is provided in the bottom part of the cradle 11 with a pan head function. The leg portion 31 is slidable in the vertical direction (vertical direction in the figure) to two positions of a protruding position and a retracted position with respect to the main body cover member 14. An inclined cam portion 32 is formed on the upper portion of the leg portion 31. Further, a lift leg return spring 33 that urges the leg 31 to the retracted position is attached to the inside of the main body cover member 14. The drive motor 23 is provided with an engaging portion 34 that cam-engages with the cam portion 32 of the leg portion 31.
そして、駆動モータ21を停止制御して出力軸の回転を停止させ、駆動モータ23を出力軸側から見て反時計回り(矢印M2ccw方向)に回転させる。ここで、駆動モータ21が超音波モータの場合は、停止時に出力軸を回転させない状態を保つ保持力(無通電保持力)を持っているので、出力軸の回転の停止させる部材などを必要としない。   Then, the drive motor 21 is stopped to stop the rotation of the output shaft, and the drive motor 23 is rotated counterclockwise (in the direction of the arrow M2ccw) as viewed from the output shaft side. Here, when the drive motor 21 is an ultrasonic motor, since it has a holding force (non-energized holding force) that keeps the output shaft from rotating when stopped, a member that stops the rotation of the output shaft is required. do not do.
駆動モータ21の出力軸を停止状態に保持することにより、駆動モータ21側の傘歯車22と噛み合う支持台座13側の傘歯車25も回転せず、停止状態となる。従って、駆動モータ23側の傘歯車24は傘歯車25の歯面を自走していくことになり、駆動モータ23自体が、垂直に立った状態での支持台座13の回転軸を中心に矢印S1方向に旋回動作する。   By holding the output shaft of the drive motor 21 in the stopped state, the bevel gear 25 on the support pedestal 13 side that meshes with the bevel gear 22 on the drive motor 21 side also does not rotate and enters the stopped state. Therefore, the bevel gear 24 on the side of the drive motor 23 is self-propelled on the tooth surface of the bevel gear 25, and the drive motor 23 itself has an arrow centering on the rotation axis of the support base 13 in a vertically standing state. It turns in the S1 direction.
かかる旋回動作時には、可動カバー部材17も駆動モータ23と一体的に旋回するが、可動カバー部材17と本体カバー部材14との重なり部分により、雲台機能付きクレードル11の内部構造が露出することがない。また、フレキシブルケーブル28は、少々長めに余裕を持っているので、電気的な接続に支障はない。   During such a turning operation, the movable cover member 17 also turns integrally with the drive motor 23. However, the internal structure of the cradle 11 with a pan head function may be exposed due to the overlapping portion of the movable cover member 17 and the main body cover member 14. Absent. Further, since the flexible cable 28 has a little longer margin, there is no problem in electrical connection.
そして、駆動モータ23の矢印S1方向への旋回動作により、係合部34が脚部31のカム部32を押し下げ、脚部31は雲台機能付きクレードル11の底面より下方に出っ張る位置に移動する。これにより、雲台機能付きクレードル11が設置面より持ち上げられる。従って、垂直方向(図の上下方向)の二つの位置で撮像装置12による画像撮影が可能となって三角測量などに利用可能となり、特別な手段を設けずに、パン方向およびチルト方向の回転動作以外の機能を簡易に得ることができる。   Then, by the turning operation of the drive motor 23 in the arrow S1 direction, the engaging portion 34 pushes down the cam portion 32 of the leg portion 31, and the leg portion 31 moves to a position where it protrudes downward from the bottom surface of the cradle 11 with a pan head function. . Thereby, the cradle 11 with a pan head function is lifted from the installation surface. Therefore, it is possible to take an image with the imaging device 12 at two positions in the vertical direction (up and down direction in the figure), and it can be used for triangulation and the like, and rotation operation in the pan direction and the tilt direction without providing special means. Other functions can be easily obtained.
なお、駆動モータ23を出力軸側から見て時計回りに回転させて、駆動モータ21と駆動モータ23との両方の出力軸が互いに同軸になる位置に駆動モータ23を戻すと、リフト脚戻りバネ33の付勢力により、脚部31も引き込み位置に復帰する。   When the drive motor 23 is rotated clockwise as viewed from the output shaft side, and the drive motor 23 is returned to a position where the output shafts of both the drive motor 21 and the drive motor 23 are coaxial with each other, the lift leg return spring is returned. The leg 31 is also returned to the retracted position by the urging force of 33.
次に、図7を参照して、図6に示す状態での撮像装置12のパン方向の回転動作を説明する。   Next, the rotation operation in the pan direction of the imaging device 12 in the state shown in FIG. 6 will be described with reference to FIG.
図6に示す脚部31が出っ張り位置にある状態で、駆動モータ21を出力軸側から見て時計回り(矢印M1cw方向)に回転させ、駆動モータ23を出力軸側から見て時計回り(矢印M2cw方向)に駆動モータ21と同一速度で回転させる。すると、傘歯車22と傘歯車24と傘歯車25との噛み合せにより、撮像装置12が装着された支持台座13は、支持台座13の回転軸を中心として、パン方向(矢印P1方向)に回転動作する。   In the state where the leg portion 31 shown in FIG. 6 is in the protruding position, the drive motor 21 is rotated clockwise (in the direction of the arrow M1cw) when viewed from the output shaft side, and the drive motor 23 is rotated clockwise (as indicated by the arrow). (M2cw direction) at the same speed as the drive motor 21. Then, by the meshing of the bevel gear 22, the bevel gear 24, and the bevel gear 25, the support pedestal 13 on which the imaging device 12 is mounted rotates in the pan direction (arrow P1 direction) around the rotation axis of the support pedestal 13. To do.
つまり、駆動モータ21の出力軸と駆動モータ23の出力軸とが互いに同軸上になくても、パン方向の回転動作が可能であることが分かる。また、駆動モータ21と駆動モータ23との両方の出力軸が、互いに同軸配置される位置に駆動モータ23を戻したときのみ、撮像装置12のチルト方向の回転動作が可能となる。   That is, it can be seen that the rotation operation in the pan direction is possible even if the output shaft of the drive motor 21 and the output shaft of the drive motor 23 are not coaxial with each other. Further, only when the drive motor 23 is returned to a position where the output shafts of both the drive motor 21 and the drive motor 23 are coaxially arranged, the imaging device 12 can be rotated in the tilt direction.
次に、図8を参照して、雲台機能付きクレードル11の撮像装置12のパン方向およびチルト方向の回転動作以外の機能の他の例を説明する。   Next, another example of the function other than the rotation operation in the pan direction and the tilt direction of the imaging device 12 of the cradle 11 with a pan head function will be described with reference to FIG.
図8に示すように、本体カバー部材14の内側には、シャッター部材16を窓部15(図1参照)を閉じる方向に付勢するシャッター戻バネ35が取り付けられている。シャッター部材16の後方にはアクセスボタン36が配置されている。このアクセスボタン36は、窓部15がシャッター部材16で閉じられている状態(通常状態)では、不用意に操作されることはない。   As shown in FIG. 8, a shutter return spring 35 that urges the shutter member 16 in a direction to close the window portion 15 (see FIG. 1) is attached to the inside of the main body cover member 14. An access button 36 is disposed behind the shutter member 16. The access button 36 is not inadvertently operated when the window portion 15 is closed by the shutter member 16 (normal state).
そして、駆動モータ21を停止制御して出力軸の回転を停止させ、駆動モータ23を出力軸側から見て時計回り(矢印M2cw方向)に回転させる。ここで、駆動モータ21が超音波モータの場合は、停止時に出力軸を回転させない状態を保つ保持力(無通電保持力)を持っているので、出力軸の回転の停止させる部材などを必要としない。   Then, the drive motor 21 is controlled to stop, the rotation of the output shaft is stopped, and the drive motor 23 is rotated clockwise (in the direction of the arrow M2cw) as viewed from the output shaft side. Here, when the drive motor 21 is an ultrasonic motor, since it has a holding force (non-energized holding force) that keeps the output shaft from rotating when stopped, a member that stops the rotation of the output shaft is required. do not do.
駆動モータ21の出力軸を停止状態に保持することにより、駆動モータ21側の傘歯車22と噛み合う支持台座13側の傘歯車25も回転せず、停止状態となる。従って、駆動モータ23側の傘歯車24は傘歯車25の歯面を自走していくことになり、駆動モータ23自体が、垂直に立った状態での支持台座13の回転軸を中心に矢印S2方向に旋回動作する。   By holding the output shaft of the drive motor 21 in the stopped state, the bevel gear 25 on the support pedestal 13 side that meshes with the bevel gear 22 on the drive motor 21 side also does not rotate and enters the stopped state. Therefore, the bevel gear 24 on the side of the drive motor 23 is self-propelled on the tooth surface of the bevel gear 25, and the drive motor 23 itself has an arrow centering on the rotation axis of the support base 13 in a vertically standing state. It turns in the S2 direction.
駆動モータ23の矢印S2方向への旋回動作により、係合部34がシャッター部材16の後端部16a(図6参照)を押して、シャッター部材16が窓部15を開く位置に移動する。これにより、アクセスボタン36が雲台機能付きクレードル11の外部より操作可能となる。   By the turning operation of the drive motor 23 in the arrow S2 direction, the engaging portion 34 pushes the rear end portion 16a (see FIG. 6) of the shutter member 16, and the shutter member 16 moves to a position where the window portion 15 is opened. As a result, the access button 36 can be operated from the outside of the cradle 11 with a pan head function.
ここで、アクセスボタン36の機能として、初期設定のリセットボタンや隠しコマンドボタンなどを例示できる。また、アクセスボタン36を、撮像装置12を支持台座13に対して着脱するためのボタンとした場合、支持台座13がチルト方向への回転を規制される位置なので操作性がよくなる。このように、特別な手段を設けずに、パン方向およびチルト方向の回転動作以外の機能を簡易に得ることができる。   Here, examples of the function of the access button 36 include an initial reset button and a hidden command button. Further, when the access button 36 is a button for attaching / detaching the imaging device 12 to / from the support pedestal 13, the operability is improved because the support pedestal 13 is a position where rotation in the tilt direction is restricted. In this way, functions other than the rotation operation in the pan direction and the tilt direction can be easily obtained without providing special means.
なお、駆動モータ23を出力軸側から見て反時計回りに回転させて、駆動モータ21と駆動モータ23との両方の出力軸が互いに同軸になる位置に駆動モータ23を戻すと、シャッター戻りバネ35の付勢力により、シャッター部材16が窓部15を閉じる位置に復帰する。   When the drive motor 23 is rotated counterclockwise as viewed from the output shaft side and the drive motor 23 is returned to a position where the output shafts of both the drive motor 21 and the drive motor 23 are coaxial with each other, the shutter return spring is restored. Due to the urging force of 35, the shutter member 16 returns to the position where the window portion 15 is closed.
そして、図7の場合と同様に、駆動モータ21の出力軸と駆動モータ23の出力軸とが互いに同軸上になくても、パン方向の回転動作が可能であることが分かる。また、駆動モータ21と駆動モータ23との両方の出力軸が、互いに同軸配置される位置に駆動モータ23を戻したときのみ、撮像装置12のチルト方向の回転動作が可能となる。   As in the case of FIG. 7, it can be seen that the rotation operation in the pan direction is possible even if the output shaft of the drive motor 21 and the output shaft of the drive motor 23 are not coaxial with each other. Further, only when the drive motor 23 is returned to a position where the output shafts of both the drive motor 21 and the drive motor 23 are coaxially arranged, the imaging device 12 can be rotated in the tilt direction.
以上説明したように、この実施の形態では、2つの駆動モータ21,23の合計トルクを利用して撮像装置12をパン方向およびチルト方向に回転動作させることができるので、2つの駆動モータ21,23の制御を簡易にすることができる。   As described above, in this embodiment, since the imaging device 12 can be rotated in the pan direction and the tilt direction using the total torque of the two drive motors 21 and 23, the two drive motors 21, 23 can be simplified.
また、撮像装置12のパン方向の回転動作の際に撮像装置12と共に2つの駆動モータ21,23がパン方向に回転することはなく、また、チルト方向の回転動作時では撮像装置12のみの回転モーメントとなる。   In addition, the two drive motors 21 and 23 do not rotate in the pan direction together with the image pickup device 12 when the image pickup device 12 rotates in the pan direction, and only the image pickup device 12 rotates in the tilt direction rotation operation. It becomes a moment.
このため、撮像装置12の可動部分と2つの駆動モータ21,23との小型化を図ることができるとともに、2つの駆動モータ21,23への配線を簡易にすることができ、さらに、パン方向およびチルト方向の回転動作の高速度化を実現することができる。   For this reason, the movable part of the imaging device 12 and the two drive motors 21 and 23 can be reduced in size, and wiring to the two drive motors 21 and 23 can be simplified. In addition, it is possible to increase the speed of the rotation operation in the tilt direction.
なお、本発明は上記実施の形態に例示したものに限定されるものではなく、本発明の要旨を逸脱しない範囲において適宜変更可能である。   In addition, this invention is not limited to what was illustrated to the said embodiment, In the range which does not deviate from the summary of this invention, it can change suitably.
例えば、上記実施の形態では、駆動モータ21の出力軸を停止させ、駆動モータ23の出力軸を回転させて該駆動モータ23を旋回させているが、両方の駆動モータ21,23に対して所定の回転制御を行うことで、同様の旋回動作を行うようにしてもよい。   For example, in the above embodiment, the output shaft of the drive motor 21 is stopped and the output shaft of the drive motor 23 is rotated to turn the drive motor 23. The same turning operation may be performed by performing the rotation control.
