A set of drive heads consists of two drive heads, one head per side of the slider. The heads are equipped with power transmission elements and a toothed belt connecting the slider cart and the driving motor.
The drive heads do not shorten the working range of the cart.

First drive head is equipped with 1/4 " and 3/8" holes with hardened inserts for attaching accessories.

 driving motor consists of a worm gear and a housing equipped with a number of sockets:

  • RJ 45 socket (2 pcs) for communication between the controller and the motor, also for connecting Wi-Fi module with other drives
  • DC power socket (2 pcs) to connect power source
  • 2,5mm Trigger jack to connect the shutter release cable

Second drive head is used for mounting X-GEAR40 (motor + gear) using a hinge clamp.

Single knob connection of the belt and the cart allows to easily disconnect the drive and move the cart manually.


The AION IQ controller has many extended programs. VIDEO for live action, ANIMATION for stop-motion photography and the very popular TIMELAPSE.

The 1/4” socket in the base of the controller enables it to be mounted to the cart with a 8” or 11” VARIO Magic Arm.

AION IQ controller programs:

  • Free Ride Mode - allows the user to control the speed of the slider using joystick and adjusting knobs.
  • Recording Mode - records movements of the slider in order to play it back later in Playback mode.
  • Playback Mode - plays back movements of the slider saved in Recording mode.
  • Video Loop Mode - during VideoLoop mode slider automatically turns back and starts moving in the opposite direction once it reaches the end of movement range.
ANIMATION:moves the camera on a programmed path during series of shots (drive can trigger the shutter by the cable connected to the camera).
TIMELAPSE:designed for interval shots synchronized with a very slow movement of the cart.


Controlling Slidekamera gear has never been more comfortable. The SLIDEYE™ PRO free app will help you manage our devices with easiness and precision.

The X™ MOTOR20 drive can be equiped with an additional WiFi module, that enables wireless conection to the app on a mobile device (both Android and iOS supported)
