GM3000 HPS GOTO-MOUNT INCL. COLDTEMP UPGRADE

The GM 3000 HPS reaches a Satellite tracking and positioning speed from 12 degrees / sek. with an average positioning accuracy <20" and a tracking accuracy of approx. 1"/15min (peak to peak).

The GM 3000 HPS disposes, in addition, of high-precision Absolut-Encoders on both axes which opens absolutely new possibilities. The mount never loses its orientation, even if one axis is shifted by hand. Also after a power failure no new Alignment is necessary. In the mobile company the mount is quicker and easier to instal and to align than any conventional equatorial mount.

10Micron has modernized the well proven parallactic / equatorial mount. By "Dual Axis Tracking", small errors in the polar axis and other disturbing parameters, such as deflection of the telescope tube, are compensated fully automatically during tracking.

Standard configuration of all HPS Mounts from 11/2015

  • 4-Lines Stand-Alone Keypad with metal housing and heated screen (#1452059)

  • Interface: RS232, Ethernet, (Wi-Fi not available in Cold Temp version )
  • Connectors for: GPS, Autoguider, Keypad, Mount, Aux and Remote Switch
  • Latest QCI software (Version 2.x)
  • Connection cables, counterweight bar

  • Instruction manual

ColdTemp-Upgrade for GM 2000 COMBI mounts is included

Modification package for ext. temperature range to -30°C

Not available for retrofitting existing mounts

Standard cables and greases become brittle and cause severe premature aging when subjected to deep freeze temperatures over longer periods of time. We strongly advise to choose this upgrade package for either GM3000 or GM4000 mounts, in case the mechanics and electronics of the mount have to work flawlessly under hard environmental conditions. Please note that this can only be integrated into the mount during master assembly and cannot be upgraded. This treatment would cost many times as much, if it were to be performed on an existing mount that would need to be fully disassembled to the core.

The ColdTemp-package includes:

  • Highest cost low temperature grease for bearings and worm gear (suitable viscosity stretched down to - 60°C)
  • Pre-tension springs on axes and shafts for thermal compensation
  • Integrated Linux PC w. extended XT range survival pack (up to -40°C/specified by the manufacturer)
  • All internal cabling replaced w. high endurance silicon flex cables (internal cable strands are being replaced by low temp copper alloy w. individual high strength silicone mantling)
  • Absolute encoders modified for -40°C continuous operation
  • Heavy duty test in cold chamber for several days

WiFi adaptation is not available in conjunction with the ColdTemp package!

HPS Features

HPS stands for High Precision and Speed and the mount is a further development of the known GM2000 QCI of 10micron with the same proven mechanics but less capacity than this – and thus easier to transport.

MECHANICS

  • Premium materials and processing for high quality and durability.
  • No casting parts, all pieces are CNC-milled.
  • High-precision traditional worm-wheel drives and clutches for thebest reliability.
  • Internal wiring – no external mount cables.
  • High torque brushless servo motors, maintanence free, allowing a pointing speed of up to 20°/s (GM 2000).
  • Proprietary motor drive electronic board for easy servicing.

ELECTRONICS

  • Closed loop system with on-axis encoders feedback.
  • Absolute encoders directly mounted on both RA & Dec axes, featuring < 0.1 arcsec readout error, fully encapsulated and factory calibrated.
  • Extremely low power consumption and micro format (20 x 15 x 8cm) electronics.
  • Control box and keypad can be easily detached and safely stored after your observations – for a better protection of the electronic components or for servicing, no need to return your mount!
  • Premium quality electric and electronic components for use in a wide range of operational temperatures.
  • Virtual Keypad tool on PC available for remote control.

Professional Graphic Display Included

  • Stand alone control unit – no PC required – includes all necessary functions for field use
  • Rugged keypad with metal body and reliable industrial grade micro switches
  • Large graphic display with up to five text lines and status icon, heated for low temperature operation, dimmable display and keyboard with LED backlit keys

FIRMWARE

  • Powerful firmware featuring advanced mount modeling, with several parameters computation (refraction, optical/mechanical flexures, leap second, mount orientation, object motion, clock synchronization, temperature etc.) and special functions (dual tracking, assisted polar alignment procedure etc.): the only way for perfect unguided tracking during long exposures (up to 0.6" RMS accuracy).
  • Intuitively operated system, proprietary motor controller with temperature compensated clock, onboard industrial grade Linux computer – intelligence built-in.
  • No external PC or laptop mandatory in the field – all functions in the onboard computer can be operated via stand-alone hand control unit (Keypad).
  • Precise multistar pointing model, suitable for applications such as high precision spectroscopy, TLE manager for satellite tracking, orbital parameters management for minor planets and comets, individual observing sessions management and much more.
  • Stable pointing models for safe East/West load reversal – recordable models database for different telescope setups and accessories configuration.
  • Precise and fast polar alignment procedure, managed by the internal software and executable in minutes.
  • Fully remote controlled via your observatory PC through 10/100/1000 LAN or WiFi, thanks to a well documented command protocol and drivers, via custom software or standard planetarium software.
  • Manual-, Automatic- (ClockSync proprietary software) or GPSbased time; leap second support and full computation of the UT1/ UTC timescales.
  • Electronic balance feature.
  • Remote diagnostics web assist option with. dedicated server.

Important note:

  • The Price does not include the counterwights and the power supply unit, these must be ordered in addition.
    To avoid loss of warranty, only power supplies approved by us from our price list may be used.

  • When purchasing a 10Micron mount, the heavy transport box #1453100 is mandatory.
