AWR Technology - Intelligent Drive Systems


THE FIRST BRITISH DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED INTELLIGENT DRIVE SYSTEM.

The Intelligent Handset and Drive Box is a complete system to drive a telescope and is designed to provide the ultimate in tracking, control, position readout and computer connection. It can be fitted to ANY new or existing scope fitted with slow motions. For many telescopes it is the ONLY way to get a GOTO system. Our systems are renowned for smoothness in tracking and acceleration, QUIET and ideally suited for many mount configurations and sizes.

The heart of the system is the Microstep Drive Box and motors chosen for the specific telescope. A huge dynamic speed range offers many steps per second for precise following and slews up to several degrees per second. Step sizes are available in the range 0.4 arc second to 0.01 arc second depending on telescope configuration. The Intelligent Handset provides control, GOTO operation and readout. It is fully portable requiring only a 12V DC power supply. It does not need a computer, even to perform GOTOs. If a computer is connected, then Planetarium programmes, such as "THE SKY" or "SKYMAP PRO" can do point and click GOTO's, SYNC, and tracking the telescope. The optional on board DATABASE completes the package. A complete lineup of components allows exactly the right choice for you and your telescope.
