Getting my MDL-BDC24 to work with my Telescope
I purchased a MDL-BDC24 that was date stamped 3/9/12 from Digi-Key. I also purchased the EKS-LM3S811 plus the MDL-ADA2 module. The main features that I wanted to use from the MDL-BDC24 are as follows:
1) position control (using an external 10K pot).
2) Motor rate control (either using a pot or multi position switch).
3) End stops control switch functions via Photo Transistors as the switches.
I ideally wanted the MDL-BDC24 to work as a “stand-alone unit” connected to the focus control motor (PittmanExpress, #9237S011 Lo-Cog DC Servo Motor) on my RCOS telescope following what ever programming is needed from the interface with the EKS-LM3S811 Kit . As I’m not very knowledgeable of all of the “How-to-Do” software, programming, external modules, which documentation I should be reading, how to properly program with what codes and in general anything else I should be doing, I am at a loss on how to get this unit to work with my telescope. Can you please help me resolve my issues?
