The Motorized Filter Wheel 6 is an accessory which permits remote selection of one of 6 filters in the optical path of the illumination system of many different microscopes. The Motorized Filter Wheel is installed between the Episcopic-Fluorescence Attachment and the lamp house. The stand-alone version of the system consists of a Filter Wheel attachment and a Control Module. The system permits remote manual filter selection via the six push-buttons on the Control Module, or computer selection of a filter block using an RS-232C link. In addition, an optional electricly actuated shutter can be opened either via a push button on the Control Module or by remote computer. The system can be integrated into automated microscopy processes.
