The SPOX module is compatible with the following spectrographs:

  • Alpy 600
  • LISA

Just the cable connecting the SPOX box to the spectrograph will depend on the type of spectrograph you have.

Product Details

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