Store all the lens accessories in the included hard case for protection during transport and storage.
RT MK3.1 4-Axis Wireless Lens Controller
Teradek's RT MK3.1 4-Axis Wireless Controller enables you to regulate up to four lens motors, or other controls such as 3D functions (receiver and motors available separately). This controller offers a large focus knob, one slider control, and two side knobs (A and B). Each input on the versatile MK3.1 Controller can be mapped to any lens axis (focus, iris, zoom, or 3D function) as you prefer. In addition to F/I/Z control, the MK3.1 system enables you to remotely start/stop select HD cameras such as ARRI, Blackmagic, Phantom Flex, RED, Sony, and LANC-compatible models.
Navigate the MK3.1 Controller's menu using its push buttons, and view your settings on the OLED screen display. Automatic and manual calibration options combine with a large, adjustable fluid-feel knob to provide lens-friendly adjustments. The lightweight MK3.1 system features 42 selectable channels, 16-bit transmission up to 0.9 miles, and minimal latency of 2 ms. Wired operation is supported for locations like medical facilities where RF transmission is not allowed.
Constructed from aerospace-grade aluminum, the MK3.1 Controller is designed with internal antennas to lessen the possibility of damage. A lanyard-mounting point, and three 1/4"-20 mounts provide options for safely securing the controller when you need to free your hands for other tasks. The MK3.1 Controller is powered using widely available Canon LP-E6 batteries, providing a runtime of up to 36 hours. The MK3.1 can also be powered via USB, after removing the spent LP-E6 battery.
The Teradek RT Latitude MDR-M Receiver (1-2 Axis) is compatible with RT MK3.1 controllers and motors, driving up to two lens motors with functions such as iris, focus, and or/zoom. The receiver is part of the Latitude lens control system and has a wireless range of 0.6-miles perfect for drone use in harsh RF environments. The MDR-M's WiFi connectivity provides camera control for RED DSMC2/DSMC cameras.

Teradek's RT MK3.1 Brushless Lens Motor is designed to remotely control your lens focus, iris, or zoom, or other function. The MK3.1 motor operates smoothly and quietly, even during slow, high-torque moves. This brushless motor features electronic backlash-compensation, a high-resolution encoder, and an integrated heat sink. For optimal flexibility, a gear can be attached to either side of the MK3.1 Motor, expanding position choice to either side of the lens, depending on your camera configuration.
Use the 12" RT Latitude MDR Motor Cable to connect the MDR lens motor to a Latitude MDR or MK3.1 receiver. Design features include thin, ultra-flexible cable, and two right-angle connectors. This cable is designed to exit the motor in a vertical position, creating a neat, compact route to the Latitude MDR receiver (however, the angle points downwards from the MK3.1 receiver).
The 16" RT MDR Power Cable connects power to the Latitude MDR receiver from a battery with a D-tap output port. This cable is designed with a right-angled, 4-pin, Hirose connector on one end, and a straight, D-Tap connector on the other.
Use the 6.6' RT Wired-Mode Controller Cable to connect an RT controller to an RT receiver in settings like hospitals where wireless use is not practical, or not permitted. This cable is compatible with the MK3.1 Controller, MK3.1 Receiver, all Latitude MDR models, Smartknob, other RT controllers, and supported OMOD controls.
Use the RT MK3.1 System Case from Teradek to transport a complete MK3.1 lens control system. The interior of this hard case has a foam interior custom-cut to fit up to three lens motors, one receiver, eight marking disks, and accessories such as a thumbwheel. The MK3.1 System Case is a dust-proof, waterproof case with an integrated pressure valve. Your receiver and motors may be stored attached to their mounting brackets, saving you time when reassembling the system.
The RT Receiver Rod Clamp is used to securely mount an RT receiver to a single 19mm or 15mm rod. Mount the Receiver Rod Clamp directly to the 1/4"-20 thread on an MDR-M or MK3.1 Receiver, or to the 1/4"-20 thread on the mounting bracket for the MDR-MB unit. This compact, double bracket's 1/4"-20 thumbscrew fastens to a 19mm rod on one flank, or to a 15mm rod on the other.
This RT Controller Neck Strap is designed to carry the MK3.1 controller hand unit. Use this strap to position the control unit around your neck or across your body, or to drape the controller from a stand when not in use.
The Paralinx 7.4V/2000mAh Li-Ion Battery is a Canon LP-E6-style battery designed for powering the Paralinx Triton transmitter unit. It features a capacity of 2000mAh and 7.4V of output and can power the receiver for approximately 2 to 3 hours. It attaches directly to the compatible battery plate on the transmitter unit.
The Paralinx Battery Charger is designed for charging the LP-E6 compatible 7.4V/2000mAh battery pack for the Paralinx Triton transmitter unit.
The White Marking Disk for RT MK3.1 Controller works with the RT MK3.1 hand unit. Use this beveled disk for marking focus distances or iris stops. Marks from non-permanent and china markers are easily removed; use isopropyl alcohol to clean notations made with permanent markers.
