 Locate the ASI motor drive. ​ Install the drive by using the 7/64” Allen wrench to first loosen the clamp at the end of the ASI drive shaft. ​ This clamp is located near the black encoder case and shown in figure 7.  Also loosen, but do not remove, the two vertical adjustment screws located on the adjustment bar that is attached to the drive as shown in figure 4.  After loosening the clamp and screws, slide the ASI drive shaft over the microscope’s fine focus shaft as shown in figure 5.  Then slide the tab on the bottom of the horizontal adjustment bar into slot on the base plate. ​ (Please Note:  the baseplate may need to be moved to properly align the adjustment bar.)  Use the 3mm horizontal adjustment screw removed in part 2 to secure the drive to the base plate as shown in figure 6 above. ​ Leave the screw loose enough so that the horizontal adjustment bar can slide easily in the groove in the baseplate. ​ Use the 7/64 inch hex wrench to tighten the drive shaft clamp, as shown in figure 7 below. Locate the ASI motor drive. ​ Install the drive by using the 7/64” Allen wrench to first loosen the clamp at the end of the ASI drive shaft. ​ This clamp is located near the black encoder case and shown in figure 7.  Also loosen, but do not remove, the two vertical adjustment screws located on the adjustment bar that is attached to the drive as shown in figure 4.  After loosening the clamp and screws, slide the ASI drive shaft over the microscope’s fine focus shaft as shown in figure 5.  Then slide the tab on the bottom of the horizontal adjustment bar into slot on the base plate. ​ (Please Note:  the baseplate may need to be moved to properly align the adjustment bar.)  Use the 3mm horizontal adjustment screw removed in part 2 to secure the drive to the base plate as shown in figure 6 above. ​ Leave the screw loose enough so that the horizontal adjustment bar can slide easily in the groove in the baseplate. ​ Use the 7/64 inch hex wrench to tighten the drive shaft clamp, as shown in figure 7 below.
