The Tranquilizer by Flowcine is a vibration isolators, specifically designed around the geometry of a electronic gimbal device such as Stab One, DJi Ronin, etc.
Variable capacity of charge
Small & Compact
Stabilize lighter gimbals with small amounts of mass
Reduce vibrations from lowest possible frequency range and maximise motor torque without getting into self oscillation
The Flowcine Tranquilizer use custom polymers instead of wire rope. It lets the operator go from different types of hardness and amount of polymers, that allows for perfect tweaking of the setup weight, allowing the Tranquilizer to work optimally. It also includes the Flowcine Passive plates. These adds more mass to the system, and lets the operator dials in the perfect weight and also makes a huge difference compensating incoming hard shocks. These are very easy to add and remove on the fly, while the gimbal is already attached to the system. There are eight of the passive plates coming with the standard product, enabling you to add just over 5KG/11LBS to the Tranquilizer.
To reduce the problem with when the pan motor goes into self oscillation, Flowcine designed this system to reduce a great deal of incoming vibrations, while at the same time keep the gimbal in check from jittering around the pan axis. This allows the operator to tune a gimbal/gyrohead with the highest possible pan motor torque settings and the result will be a head that handles high speeds, wind and other dynamics when shooting from vehicles better.
Tranquilizer weight ranges:
Shore 20 weight range: up to 5.40 - 10.75kg
Shore 30 weight range: up to 6.70 - 13.25kg
Shore 40 weight range up to 11.25 - 22.50kg
Shore 50 weight range up to 13.75 - 27.50kg
Shore 60 weight range up to 19.00 - 34.50kg
The Tranquilizer ships with two sets of polymers, the shore 30 and shore 40. Softer shores (20/30) are best suited for lighter rigs and/or flat (regular car) road. Harder shores (40/50/60) are more suitable for heavier rigs and/or offroad (ATV) driving. Weights above includes eventual passive plates.
