COMMON APPLICATIONS

  • Color CCD photography
  • Fluorescence microscopy
  • Photometry

Remote or Manual Operation

Filter selection can be made manually from push buttons on the unit, or remotely from either a USB 2.0 or RS-232 interface.

Interchangeable Filter Wheels

The 3.5" dia. wheel is easily changed, allowing quick conversions between applications. Additional wheels are available.

Programming and Remote Control

Automation of filter sequences is available through the USB 2.0 or serial (RS - 232 interface) using LabVIEW software for both Mac and Windows platforms. A simple command language facilitates retrieving filter status and making filter selections.

The unit comes with the controller, filter housing, filter wheel, and a 5 VDC power supply, and threaded rings to hold the optics in place.

Manual Filter Wheels

A simple, low-cost alternative to the motorized wheel, is our manual filter wheel. Two 4" dia, wheels are available: one which accepts six 25mm filters, and one which accepts twelve 12.5mm filters. Wheels are field-swappable.
