Benefits EQDrive upgrade kit:
1. Fast installation on regular EQ mount that excludes completions,alterations and loss of an original form of your equatorial mount.
2. The high-quality belt drives applied in a design, will relieve you of mount noise, which arose on traditional gear wheels. The system isn't subject to wear and development,as polyurethane belts in additives strengthened by steel cords are applied.
3. These drives have positive influence on the periodic error in mount, exclude the side play (backlash), which is an integral part of usual gear reducers
4. Ability to maintain overloads above, the best moment of acceleration.The EQDrive Standard unit support slewing speed up to 8,5°/sec (2000x).
5. Higher maintaining accuracy, correction of a form of current of windings of engines.
Shortcomings of existing solutions:
 Uneven movement
 Discrete change in velocity
 Dependence on microsteps
 Acceleration and deceleration with a push at the beginning and at the
end of movement
 Private protocol, limited functionality
 The complexity of the formation of non-linear trajectories (spiral, fast
asteroids, satellites)
Benefits EQDrive STANDARD system :
 Precise mathematical calculations
 Stepless algorithm of current in the winding
 Nonlinearity correction
 Acceleration and deceleration at any speed
 One step precise GOTO positioning
 Guiding (ST4, ASCOM)
 Open protocol ASTEP
 Eqmod compatibility
 Spiral search
