The Black arm is a 3-axis dampening system with an additional vibration mount for stabilizing roll and tilt errors as well as vertical motion and vibrations. The Black arm is a hardmount system, made for gimbals, that you want to mount on vehicles such as cars, ATVs, boats, snowmobiles etc.
The damping action of all axes, vertical, tilt and roll is created by custom made actuator hydraulic dampers that are fully adjustable.
Each Black arm ships with one anti-vibration mount (AVM). The main purpose of the AVM is to reduce high frequency vibrations, such as noise from a cars engine. In order to maximise the efficiency of the AVM, you should use the version that matches your load and conditions. There are two types of AVMs, the original Wire AVM and the new Tranquilizer.
The Wire AVMs comes in five different weight ranges, and is very easy to use. You just put the correct one on and go.
The Tranquilizer has many adjustments to fine tune it’s performance, and may give better results if you have the time and skills to configure it properly.
Pick the one that matches the total weight of everything (gimbal, camera and accessories) you will hang on to the Black arm.
