HAE43B iMate Dual AZ/EQ SWG Mount w/ High Precision Encoder (HE434B)

The newest members of iOptron strain wave gear mount family - AZ/EQ dual mount HAE43B and HAE43B EC! These light weight, compact, medium payload titans will deliver an astronomy experience like never before. Imagine a mount head weighing in at less than 13lbs with a payload capability 44lbs, without needing a cumbersome counterweight or shaft. Applying iOptron’s multi-decade experience creating precision mounts, the HAE43 brings this vision to reality.

Utilizing state-of-the-art strain wave gear technology for both RA and DEC movement, the HAE69s deliver unparalleled weight to payload efficiency. Its black anodized, all metal CNC machined body is appealing to the eye and is a rugged platform that will perform at the highest level for many years to come. Unique features include an electronic friction break to safely stop movement during a planned or unplanned power interruption.

The new “B” iMate HAE43 model mounts feature a powerful 64-bit ARM based on-board computer with Wi-Fi, preloaded KStars planetarium software, Ekos control and automation tool with INDI drivers. This hardware-software combination will support the use of most current and future devices allowing the user choice of brand and model (cameras, focusers, filter wheels, etc.).

With 32GB eMMC storage along with a slot for an up to 64 GB TF(microSD) memory, the iMate has the ability to control and capture an entire automated imaging session. The iMate is cross-platform; use it with Windows, IOS, Linux, Android etc .

All HAE iMate dual SWG Alt-az/Eq mounts now have an internal main board and no longer requires a handset for operation.All the accessories can be connected to the iMate and there is no cable drags when the mount is operating.

An HAE43B mount can also be controlled by a computer via the USB-C port on the mount base, either via ASCOM/Commander for a Windows PC or a third party INDI driver for a Mac OS software.

The HAE43B EC features a high precision RA axis encoder that delivers incredible tracking accuracy, enough that many will choose to image “sans” guiding.
