The PlaneWave EFA kit automates focusing on the optional Hedrick Focuser or IRF90 rotating focuser. The EFA control box can be mounted to the back plate of any PlaneWave telescope OTA (12.5 through 24 inches). The EFA Kit plugs into the temperature sensors and fan control systems that are built into each telescope (on the primary mirror and OTA back-plate).
A Hand Control is provided to control an optional Focuser or Rotator when standing at the eyepiece. The EFA kit comes with PlaneWave Interface (PWI3), a software package that controls all EFA functions from a PC. Cables and adapters are provided to attach the EFA kit to a PC. The EFA kit is ASCOM compatible.
