Inquiry about Sony's P-mount Biotracers

Post by By-Tor » 28 Sep 2017 06:28

I've been trying to find out a list of model numbers of all of Sony's p-mount biotracers that many have been referring to.

However, from what i have seen so far, the only Biotracer marked p-mount table i have seen is the PS-FL77; Out of the large number of other front loading tables, including the PS-FL5, PS-FL7, PS-FL990, PS-FL770, and their very similar brethren PS-LX500, PS-LX520, PS-LX55II, PS-V9900 etc. Is there any other models with a true Biotracer arm?

I'm guessing these other arms use some kind of servo motors but how well do they dampen resonant frequencies if at all?

You must be careful with Sony's T4P linear-trackers, as most of them are NOT Bio-Tracers. Only a couple of models are Bio-Tracers, and unless it says so on the plinth, it is not. I was fooled myself, once, but am happy with my non-biotracer
