AstroLink 4 USB

790.00  incl. Vat

 

AstroLink is now available with an integrated USB3.0 hub. The digital part power supply is galvanically isolated from the analog, and the data stream is opto-isolated as well. Out of the box focuser unipolar, bipolar, and microstepping control, regulated PWM outputs, switchable DC outputs, 5V regulated output,  overcurrent and overvoltage protection, temperature/humidity/sky temperature sensors – all in one box. Advanced panel software with ASCOM multidriver support to control all functions.

Please add 1-2 days to the lead time due to new enclosures manufacturing and the device final tests.

In the box:

  • AstroLink 4 USB device (black, graphite, or red)
  • XT60 female socket for custom power supply adaptation

Dedicated power supplies or cables can be purchased separately in recommended accessories.


And here are the key features of AstroLink 4 USB:

  • focuser motor control for Robofocus, Moonlite, or generic unipolar or bipolar stepper motor
  • 1/8 and 1/32 microstepping control with 1.5A maximum current
  • advanced temperature compensation with scripting support and compensation calculator
  • permanent focuser position – no need to park focuser after the session
  • 2 adjustable PWM power outputs to control dew heaters, telescope fans, or custom Peltier coolers. The maximum load is 40W per output
  • 3 switchable power outputs to power mount, cameras, or filter wheels. The maximum load is 5A per output
  • 1 additional permanent power output
  • 1 additional regulated 5V output (maximum load for connected USB devices and additional 5V output cannot exceed 3A). This output voltage is galvanically isolated from the input voltage.
  • XT60 high current input voltage socket
  • temperature/humidity/sky temperature/pressure sensors to monitor environmental conditions and calculate the dew point. It is also used to automatic control od dew heaters
  • monitor voltage, current consumption, and total energy consumed during the session – useful when working in the field with battery
  • user-defined alerts for voltages, current, energy, and temperature changes conditions
  • programmable overcurrent and overvoltage protection
  • integrated USB 3.0 hub with galvanically isolated power supply (three outputs available)
  • opto-isolated USB 3.0 input
