High power focuser motor with 1:120 reduction

229.00  incl. Vat

High-resolution high torque Robofocus compatible focuser motor with built-in 1:120 reduction. Metal gearbox. Cable included.


Unipolar focusing stepper motor 12V with built-in 1:120 reduction gearbox that gives resolution 5760 steps per revolution that correspond to about 3 micrometers per step at standard Crayford focuser. This resolution is enough to set focus in instruments with a focal ratio of f/3 and slower. The motor is equipped with an RJ 6-pin socket and the cable ended with a DB9 or RJ plug. This is compatible with the Robofocus standard, which can be powered by many different controllers – AstroLink, AstroHub, Moonlite, USB Focus, and many others. Motor torque is enough to work with medium and large Crayford focusers and R&P focusers (up to 3″) with loads up to 4-5kg (like a monochromatic camera with filter wheel and OAG). Gears are all metal.

To rotate the microfocuser shaft version with 1:20 reduction should be used.
