QHY 3rd Generation M Color Filter Wheel - Thin Version

 

With the introduction of their innovative new 3rd generation models, QHYCCD has revolutionized what one can expect from a filter wheel moving forward. Incorporating an ultra-thin stepper motor drive, this 17 mm thick filter wheel is capable of fully automatic filter switching. It offers five positions for 2" and 50 mm filters. Since this is the thin version of the QHYCFW3 medium filter wheel, maximum thickness for mounted filters, excluding filter thread height, is 5.5 mm.

Ultra-Thin Hybrid Stepper Motor Drive

 

For their third generation color filter wheel design, QHYCCD is using an ultra-thin supreme quality hybrid stepper motor. This hybrid motor is more precise with a smaller step angle when compared to the PM stepper motors employed by many other filter wheels. To keep dust from accumulating, the motor is enclosed. This enhances the motor's dependability while prolonging its life. Carousel rotation can be conveniently made in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions for quick and easy filter access.

Friction Drive with Zero Backlash

 

Regarding the evolution of the motor drive, QHYCCD's 2nd generation filter wheels used a gear drive while their 3rd generation filter wheels use a friction drive that results in zero backlash during operation.

USB Serial Port Switch

 

Serial port switch supports fast serial communication mode to USB communication mode switching.

USB Powered

 

The firmware used by this filter wheel is open source and compatible with Arduino. QHY 4-pin connection control mode is also supported, while the design makes it suitable for use with the QHY OAG (Off-Axis Guider) that matches its size.

Beautiful Appearance

 

Cut from a single section of aluminum, QHYCFW3 filter wheels are expertly crafted with precision CNC machining and an exquisite main body finish. With a small design and comfortable feel, you won't want to put this filter wheel down!

 

The filter carousel has been especially designed to allow the installation of unmounted filters with varying thickness. Mounted filters below 5.5 mm in thickness can be installed while unmounted filters of different thicknesses can also be mounted to the same filter disc. This makes filter positioning quicker and more precise.

Please Note : Image shows two separate versions of the QHYCFW3 filter wheel. If you purchase this item, you will receive only the 5 position filter wheel.
