CAN I USE THE REV2 HEAD AND THE SECOND SHOOTER ON A CINE SLIDER

I BOUGHT THE REV2 BUNDLE FOR MY CRANE. FOR MOVING ( SLIDE ) ON A SLIDER I NEED TO BUY A SECOND ELECTRA DRIVE!
SO I THOUGHT INSTEAD TO CONTROL THE SLIDE MOVE ON THE SLIDER WITH THE ELECTRA DRIVE CAN I USE THE SECOND SHOOTER.?

You would not be able to control the elektraDRIVE or REV2 motors with the Second Shooter or Second Shooter Plus controller. The SS/SS+ system uses digital encoded motors, the elektraDRIVE motors are NOT encoded.

You could used the SS/SS+ controller and SS slider motor to control the slider movement, then you would use the Oracle with the Rev2 to control the pan/tilt movement. Going this route, you would have the base of the SS/SS+ system, and then could add the SS pan/tilt or soon to be released Digital Rev pan/tilt (similar form factor as Rev2, but with encoded motors) later in the future.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact our team at support@kesslercrane.com. Thanks!
