Simplifying Motion Control

X-FWR-E Series: Motorized filter wheels with built-in controllers and motor encoders

  • Interchangeable filter holders for 25 mm optics (10 positions) or 32 mm optics (7 positions)
  • Smooth, high speed filter changes; Adjacent filter change time of 57 ms (10 position wheel)
  • Built-in controller; daisy-chains with other Zaber products
  • Mounting provided for optical cage systems and C-mount components

Zaber's X-FWR-E Series devices are computer-controlled, motorized filter wheels with high speed filter change capabilities, a low profile, and interchangeable filter holders. Each filter wheel is sold with one included filter holder (FH0625 for 10 x 25 mm filter positions or FH0632 for 7 x 32 mm filter positions). The X-FWR-E filter wheels are stand-alone units requiring only a standard 48 V power supply. The built-in motor encoder allows closed-loop operation and slip/stall recovery features. An indexed knob provides convenient manual control for versatile operation even without a computer.

These devices connect to the RS-232 port or USB port of any computer, and they can be daisy-chained with any other Zaber products. The daisy-chain also shares power, making it possible for multiple X-Series products to share a single power supply. Convenient locking, 4-pin, M8 connectors on the unit allow for secure connection between units. Like all of Zaber's products, the X-FWR Series is designed to be 'plug and play' and very easy to set up and operate.

Zaber's positioners with built-in controllers, stand-alone controllers, and joysticks are divided into three series: the T-Series, the A-Series, and the X-Series. Please refer to our Series Reference Table for more information.
