IR Component Scaffolds

Pre-tested assemblies, with wiring harness and PC boards, mounting two IR LEDs and two IR phototransistors, replacing the parts originally provided on one RA or DEC motor encoder housing. These help make replacement easier and avoid stress on leads. Sold as a set, as shown.

For the 8", 10", and 12" LX200 Classic telescope, and may also fit the LXD750/LXD650 mounts.

Additional Information

These products are meant to assist an experienced technician in the replacement of the LX200 Motor Encoder assembly. Installation requires basic soldering. The components should be fixed in place at the housing, for example with a hot glue gun. Any existing LEDs and phototransistors must be removed before installing, and the cavities for them should be clean and free of loose debris. The new boards can then be carefully pressed into place. Note that the phototransistor side (with the blue wire), should not be pressed in further than the thickness of the aluminum cover plate they sit within (they can go just a bit farther).
