Shelyak SPOX Module - for Aply 600 with 5 m Cable

This SPOX is a small control module for the Alpy 600 spectrograph calibration lamps with a 5 meter cable. (Also available for the LISA, and LHIRES III spectrograph calibration lamps.)


This can be done manually, near the telescope (if you are in mobile configuration for example) or through your computer, by a USB cable – whether on Windows or Linux.

Shelyak SPOX Module-A

Manual control near the telescope is simply done using the SPOX push-buttons. Each button controls either the halogen lamp for the flats or the Neon / Argon lamp for spectral calibration.

Shelyak SPOX Module-B

A red led indicates whether one of the spectrograph lamps is defective.


You can also control calibration lamps via a small dedicated software (available in the download section) or via an application using an ASCOM driver.

Shelyak SPOX Module-C

Shelyak SPOX Module-D

The SPOX module comes with its 2 m USB cord (6.7-feet) and this option, and configuration for the Aply 600, the cable needed to connect SPOX with your spectrograph is the 5 m (16.4-feet) cable.


The cable is equipped at the both ends with a Tiny XLR 4 pin plug and an additional adapter is included for the Aply 600.


You will also need a 12V power supply.
