Before you connect, you must specify the filter wheel serial port. By default, it is set to /dev/ttyUSB0. After verifying the port, it is recommended to save configuration under Options tab so that it gets loaded automatically on subsequent startups.
Once you're connected you can read or set filter wheel position in the Filter Wheel tab. The filter wheel tab also enables setting a unique name and focus offset to each filter position.
Change the filter wheel position by changing the filter slot property.
The Main Control Panel offers simple commands for the following functions:
- Hard Reset
- Reset filter position to 1
- Perform calibration. Please refer to your filter wheel manual for details on calibration procedure.
- Reset calibration values.
