The DM2X combines torque, speed, and size in a lightweight magnesium housing. A direct replacement for the beloved DM2 motor, the DM2X adds higher torque capabilities and increased durability in the same physical size as its predecessor. Like all Preston digital motors, the DM2X is built to last with metal (not plastic) internal gears, coated with Diamond-Like Carbon that virtually eliminates wear and backlash.
The standard output gear is 0.25” wide, but can be swapped for a 0.5” version for lenses with significant travel on the focus ring. You can also stack multiple gears with the three 2-56 thread screw holes in the side of the gear to achieve the same effect. The 15mm rod makes for easy and compact coupling to lenses using our motor brackets, and can easily be switched to the opposite side of the motor for mounting versatility.
