 When using a ASI Filter Wheel with a ASI Rapid Automated Modular Microscope, (RAMM), you may find that some of the larger format cameras will not fit within the width of the Filter wheels C-Mount to motor housing or will not rotate fully on the C-Mount to clear the motor housing. To alieviate this problem the Filter Wheel can be mounted backwards on the RAMM with pair of reversable adapters that can be inserted by set screws rather than rotated on threads. When using a ASI Filter Wheel with a ASI Rapid Automated Modular Microscope, (RAMM), you may find that some of the larger format cameras will not fit within the width of the Filter wheels C-Mount to motor housing or will not rotate fully on the C-Mount to clear the motor housing.

 To add or remove a filter to the C-Mount first remove the C-Mount from the C60 ring and look around the side of the C-Mount to find the filter retainer set screw. A 1.5mm driver will remove the nylon tipped set screw that retains or removes the filter. ​ To add or remove a filter to the C-Mount first remove the C-Mount from the C60 ring and look around the side of the C-Mount to find the filter retainer set screw.

 Also, the Filter Wheel has an angular limitation in this backwards configuration on the RAMM, due to contact with the arch and the table, of minus 8 degrees to minus 40 degrees as seen below. Also, the Filter Wheel has an angular limitation in this backwards configuration on the RAMM, due to contact with the arch and the table, of minus 8 degrees to minus 40 degrees as seen below.

 If further limitations arise when mounting the filter wheel in the backwards configuration,​ usually due to a different configuration in the RAMM, contact ASI as we are creating new ways to mount things to the RAMM weekly. If further limitations arise when mounting the filter wheel in the backwards configuration,​ usually due to a different configuration in the RAMM, contact ASI as we are creating new ways to mount things to the RAMM weekly.
