Has this motorized filter wheel (FW102C) ever been used in a vacuum chamber?
asundararaj  (posted 2020-01-08 09:12:31.0)
Thank you for contacting Thorlabs. The motorized filter wheels are not vacuum compatible, and have not been tested in vacuum. These have anodized parts that will out gas, however we would expect that even an unanodized version would have issues with other components (including electronics and grease).

Hello, I would liike to know if the software and APIs are compatible with Linux Environment. Thank you in advance, Best regards, Claudia
YLohia  (posted 2019-07-02 11:29:57.0)
Hello Claudia, thank you for contacting Thorlabs. The USB port connection for these filter wheels uses an FTDI chip, for which you can find drivers online here: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm. You will not need a specific driver if you use the RS-232 connection. Unfortunately, we don't officially support Linux for this software currently, but you can refer to the serial port commands and settings in the manual for more information in order to write your program.

Hi, I'm having trouble with getting the FW212C filter wheel to register 12 positions with micromanager software rather than 6. which is the default. I'm using the Thorlabs driver. The wheel registers 12 positions in the Thorlabs software, and operates normally.
llamb  (posted 2019-02-22 03:44:06.0)
Thank you for contacting Thorlabs. While we do not officially support Micro-Manager at this time, the Set Position Count command should be set to pcount=12. I have reached out to you directly to try and troubleshoot further.
carlo.desanti  (posted 2018-10-22 13:35:38.39)
Dear Thorlabs technical support, is the filter wheel able to operate only in vertical position (i.e. as in the picture on the website) or also in horizontal position (e.g. connected directly to the optical path of a microscope, with the light coming from the floor and going towards the ceiling)? In the latter case, would its weigth be a problem? Thanks, best regards.
YLohia  (posted 2018-10-24 04:30:04.0)
Hello, thank you for contacting Thorlabs. The mounting orientation (horizontal vs vertical) should not impact the performance of the filter wheel.

Hello, thank you for contacting Thorlabs. If the latest version (4.2.0) of the software is downloaded from the webpage, then there will be a folder under the following location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Thorlabs\FW102C\Sample This contains a file tilted "FW203C_LVSDK.zip", which has the FilterWheel102_win64.dll file. This can be used with the FW102 SDK Manual for 64-bit development.

Hi I have a number of these filter wheels (fw102c) and i have a problem with a few that i need help with before i buy anymore... the wheels sit on systems that run continuously and we have found that some of the wheels reset themselves and move positions after a few hours! we have out in the software to move then ourselves every 40 minutes BUT this still happens - can you help us with a solution please? thanks chris hunter
nbayconich  (posted 2018-04-04 09:50:09.0)
Thank you for your feedback. We'd be happy to help troubleshoot this issue you are seeing where the filter wheels reset their position and move positions after several hours. If possible we will need to know more details about how you are controlling these units such as are you controlling them simply through the FW GUI software using command sequences, are you sending commands using C++, Labview or triggering with a TTL pulse? I will contact you directly to help troubleshoot your filter wheel. For more assistance regarding technical product support please contact us at techsupport@thorlabs.com or 973-300-3000
pblackburn  (posted 2018-01-10 12:38:35.317)
We have several of these filter wheels on hand and the internal wheel wobbles on all of them. No matter how tight the thumb screw is tightened, the filter wheel's bearings are never fully clamped by the two sides of the housing, allowing the plane of the wheel to wobble. This is causing issues for us, as it couples mechanical vibration to optical signal noise. I'm surprised that no one else has complained about this. Do you have suggestion to address this? We have some ideas but would like to hear what Thorlabs has to say. Thank you.
nbayconich  (posted 2018-05-08 09:04:09.0)
Thank you for your feedback. In the old design we were installing shims underneath the bearings to compensate for dimensional tolerances. In March 2013 we updated the design and the use of shims was not required anymore. Chances are these filter wheels were purchased before the design update and in these units the shims were not installed properly. We can of course return and repair any of these filter wheels that have been experiencing this problem. I will contact you directly to help troubleshoot these parts.

Hello, I wrote in 2014 about the same topic: I waste a lot of time waiting for the filter wheels reaching the next position. Some changes take more time - therefore I have to wait at least for the maximum change time (automated system). Is there an option to ask "reached position?" or "Moving?". If the device would be able to tell when its moving is finished, I wouldn't waste any time waiting.

I need help on my FW102C. I purchased two of these in 2011. I made a stupid decision to upgrade their firmware to version 1.07 (the current one on the Thorlab website). Unfortunately, this new version seems to be incompatible with my old FW102C. After the upgrade, both of my filter wheels show error message "E1". They seem to have a problem to find their right positions. Please help, and I think your company should give a note to say the the new firmware is not compatible with old FW102C.

We would like to use the 102C by mounting it between a c-mount camera and lens (Camera mounted to side 1 of the filter wheel and variable zoom lens mounted to side 2 of the wheel). Do you carry any COTS assemblies or optics to allow this to work (proper focus-shift compensation for the extra distance from camera-to-lens, etc.)? We are tying to keep it as simple, cheap, and compact as possible.

Hi, is it possible to use this device with the cover off? We would like to attach short (~1" lens tubes) to the filter wheel at 5 of the 6 positions. This would allow us to use this wheel to alter the relative position of 5 identical lenses (move the focal point). Thanks, Stephen.

Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: The FW102C can be operated with the cover off. I would recommend using this in a clean area so dust and dirt is not a concern.

Hi, i'm using the wheel with labview. Is there a possibility to check if the wheel is finished moving? For example when i'm setting a new position i would like to pause my programm untill the position is reached. br
cdaly  (posted 2014-02-11 12:16:36.0)
Response from Chris at Thorlabs: There are set position commands; POS=n and POS? POS=n; moves the wheel to the filter position n. POS? will retrieve the latest position; although it must be constantly polled. There is currently no command that will perform the instant feedback of the filter position. If this command is required we will need to investigate further and see if it is possible to add to the existing command set.

jlow  (posted 2013-09-04 11:34:00.0)
Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: With the current firmware, this is not possible at the moment for any arbitrary location. You can do it in 1/2 step though. To do that, send the command "pcount=12". Position 2 would then be filter 1, position 3 would be half way between filter 1 and 2, position 4 would be filter 2 and so on.

We purchased the filter wheel FW102C and thought it can be used with uManager. Unfortunately, it doesn't work on our hand. The software can recognize the COM and the filter wheel in the setup process. However, there is no hardware response (i.e. wheel switch) when capturing. Does anyone (or the manufacturer) have a way to make it work? At the same time, others need to be cautious if you want to purchase filter wheels to pair with micromanager. TOFRA has cheap filter wheels that we have tested to work with uManager.

Hi, I have been using a FW102C for a few months now and am starting to have a few problems, when moving the wheel in one direction it works fine, when I try and move the wheel in the other direction the move is much noisier and takes longer, do you know what is causing this and if it is damaging the wheel? This happens regardless of whether I use the actual buttons on the filter wheel or move it programatically. Is there a way of forcing the filterwheel to move in one direction only using serial communication, i think at the moment the filter wheel just takes the quickest route to it's new position in my program.

Response from Buki at Thorlabs to huiwang.ai: Thank you for your feedback. To use the FW102C as a shutter or "block", you would need to fill one of the filter wheel positions with an SM1PL - SM1 Plug.

Filter wheels specify they hold 1" diameter filters but dont actually call out a tolerance in the available literature.

Response from Javier at Thorlabs to carsten.schmidt: Thank you for submitting your inquiry. You can try updating the firmware to the latest version; however, if the wheels really have several 100,000 cycles on them then they are getting very close to the end of their life and the firmware update will not help. The loss of communication and the need to cycle the power is an indication that the FW102B is not completing the commanded move. This occurs more frequently as the wheel ages. The latest firmware is a little more robust in trying to force the wheel to complete the move, but even this does not work all the time. The FW102C will not have this issue, as its life time is much longer than that of the FW102B.I will contact you directly for further support.

Hi. I am using a couple of FW102B and FW102C since the year 2008. I am frequently experiencing the same problems as smcmanus and guspank: I am loosing the connection to filterwheel after a couple of hours. My workaround was to include a relay, which switched off the power to the FW. After 10 seconds power was restored and everything was fine again. Now Ive got a couple of questions: 1) I have one system, where this doesnt work anymore. It can take hours or even a reboot to reestablish the communication. The specific fw102b dates back to 06/2009, application s/w update from vs1.0 to vs1.02 (my newest version) didnt help. The fw worked more or less fine with the error occuring only once every three months, but now it occurs everyday. In an older post I read a firmware update might help? My issues got worse after I changed the instruments setup (more data is forced through the USB ports). Three other fw102b work fine with the new setup. LabView Errors are: Driver Status: (Hex 0xBFFF0015) (time out?) and (Hex 0xBFFA1190) The session handle is not valid. 2) The fw was excessively used (hundred thousands of revolutions). Has it possibly reached the end of its expected lifetime? How do I notice if a fw does? 3) My FW102C are realtively new. Do I have to expect the same issues? Until now everything works fine! Thanks in advance.

For our application, the FW102C has no advantage over the FW102B. It has way too much backlash in its gearing and the device is much larger and heavier than it needs to be. The on/off switch needs to be relocated or recessed as jhorton pointed out. We bought one to see if it can replace the FW102B in our system, but it doesnt come close.

The on/off switch is the only part that prevents mounting the FW flush along that face, so it would be much better to locate the switch down with the advance position buttons. Also The gigantic body is now a horrible inconvenience when compared to the very compact FW102b

I am having the exact same problem as poster smcmanus on 4/15 where the FW102B intermittently locks up to the point where even the manual buttons do not work until power is cycled on the device. I would be very interested to know more details on the source of this issue and its resolution. I can easily add a larger delay, though I doubt this is the problem as we only send one command every so often. We do access the filter wheel through a USBGear (USBG-7U2ML) hub. Unfortunately, removing the filter wheel from the hub is not a viable option as it is integrated into a system. None of the other devices have any issues, only the filter wheel. Is there any way to work around this issue, or at least to recover from it through software?

A response from Lou at Thorlabs to cdorrer: You might have an issue with the firmware in the wheel not retaining updated info in the EPROM. We will send you update program to fix it. Unzip the file into some directory and then with the wheel attached and turned on but no applications running, run Reprogram.exe. This should update the firmware. If you should change the baud rate, once you reconnects to the wheel at the new baud rate, you should send the "save" command. If not, when you cycles power to the wheel it will revert back to the original baud rate.
cdorrer  (posted 2009-10-28 12:54:31.0)
The baud rate for the serial port switches back to 9600 baud even after changing it to 115200 and saving the change in the Automation Explorer. If the baud rate is set through the Windows Hardware control panel, a problem occurs because the VISA rate (9600) is different from the Windows rate (115200). Additionally, sessions open via the Automation Explorer or directly with Labview do not operate (e.g. generate a Framing Error). This occurs on two different computers.
leichner  (posted 2009-06-23 09:16:16.0)
A FTDI type of device needs to have a driver installed. This is what enables RS232 protocol to work with a USB port. They are both serial but the protocol is different. Typically Windows assigns a USR type of interface (RS232 to USB) to COM3 or COM7. You can force the COM7 assignment to COM3. As long as the hardware is connected the port assignment remains. Once the a device is disconnected the port setting can change next time around. The application software must have the option to negotiate port settings. If a fixed dedicated port is necessary then the argument not to do away with RS232 is very strong.

Greg  (posted 2009-04-16 11:23:33.0)
A response from Greg at Thorlabs to smcmanus: Thank you for your feedback on the FW102B. There are a few different possibilities that may be causing the filter wheels to stall. First, there may be too many devices connected to your computer as USB is shared. If you are using a USB hub, please try connecting the filter wheels directly to your computer. We have seen issues with certain hubs not working as well as others when multiple devices are connected. If you send commands too quickly to the filter wheels, you may fill up the memory buffer. This can stall the system. If you send commands only after the wheel has completed a move, this will not be an issue. The wheel takes roughly 600 ms to change position, thus sending commands after a greater interval of time is ideal. A member of our Technical Support group has been put in contact with you to ensure that we identify the source of your issue and resolve it.

A response from Laurie at Thorlabs to iyerv: Thank you for your interest in our FW series of motorized filters. Based on the information you provided in your post, I would suggest that you try the following: (1) Ensure that your light is striking the filter wheel at normal incidence. (2) Ensure that all filters are mounted such that the incident beam is also normal to their surfaces (Use canned air to clean out any dust particles that may be in the filter wheel slots). (3) Although our standard retaining rings generally produce good results, you could consider switching to our stress-free retaining rings (SM1LTRR). If you continue to experience unsatisfactory results after trying these things, please let us know.
iyerv  (posted 2008-08-04 16:03:56.0)
Weve just set up this filter wheel, and notice that there are substantial shifts in the beam position at about 1m distance, about an order-of-magnitude greater than I noticed with a rival filter wheel product (New Focus) that Ive used in the past. Can you recommend anything to improve this? For one, Im surprised theres no O-ring with each filter to ensure consistent mounting.
Tyler  (posted 2008-06-26 16:42:22.0)
A response from Tyler at Thorlabs to jjohnson: I will have an applications engineer start a dialog with you about this issue. However, in short, each filter wheel has a unique USB id. When a PC sees a new USB device for the first time it creates a registry key where it associates the USB id with a serial port. The next time it sees that device, it attempts to assign the same port to the device as the previous time. This works fine unless some other device has been attached that is now assigned to that port. In that case, the next available port is assigned to the device. So if you attach 5 filter wheels, and there are no new devices taking up any of the original 5 ports, then everything should be fine even if you attach them to different USB ports or use a different USB hub.
jjohnson  (posted 2008-06-25 13:16:24.0)
Hi, My application will use up to 5 filter wheels (so sometimes a usb hub will be used). What would be the process to assure that each filter wheel gets the same COM port each time the system comes up? (users would have a hard time with this!) Thanks, J

交換方法
6ポジションと12ポジションフィルターホイールの交換方法を説明した動画が「概要」タブでご覧いただけます。 同じポジション数のフィルターホイールを交換する場合には、電動フィルターホイールの電源を切ってから筐体前面のつまみネジを抜き、前面カバーを外します。 その後フィルターホイールを外し、別のホイールを挿入します。 6ポジションと12ポジションフィルターホイールを交換する際にも、手順は同じです。 ただし、前面カバーを取り付けた後、電動フィルターホイールの設定を新しいポジション数に設定し直す必要があります。 設定には上部の2つの矢印ボタンを約3秒間押し続け、フィルターポジションの数値を6または12に変更します。
