HDM4000 Mount (Soon)

Hercules HDM400 is the much stronger and rigid mount in it's category. 

 

Harmonic drives reducer have huge advantages compare to worm gears and direct drives mounts :

  • Much highier torque 300Nm rated (30kg@1meter off balance) on RA and DEC

  • Work without the need for counterweight

  • Highier payload capacity

  • No maintenance or lubrification needed

  • Much longer life cycle

  • Virtually Zero Backlash

  • Can hold 2 (or more) telescopes of differents weight without having to care about balancing

  • Can be setup in Equatorial or AltaZ  by using different pier

  • Our HDM series is all integrated, so you just have to bring the mount and connect it.

  • High resolution BLDC 3 phases Servo motors (these are big for less reduction)

  • PEC and Point XP pointing model are available for the best performances

  • High Resolution Absolute encoder on both axis available (Option)
