Am relaying the latest developments on the CNCTRK system hardware.
Arduino Interface for CNCTRK/RAZEL Positioner Developed For Use With SATPC32
An Arduino SKETCH has been developed to allow interfacing the RAZEL
any tracking software using the Yaesu GS-232 protocol. This enables the
stepper motor based positioner to be used from SATPC32, GPredict, and
*without using the CNC-based system* on the Raspberry Pi or laptop. The
has only been tested with SatPC32, so far.
Arduino connections (pinouts) and detailed descriptions can be found here:
The Arduino Sketch is found here:
Thanks to Tom, W9KE, for a nice start on the GS-232 interface code, though
any errors are all mine!
Comments, corrections, and feedback are welcomed.
