Hi,
I've found a terrific Arduino roll off roof controller here:

create.arduino.cc/projecthub/cfar/rollin...trending___&offset=7

It does everything needed to control a roof, There is arduino source code, and source code for an Ascom driver. I would love to use this with Indi, but I'm not a programmer. Is there anyone who could create/convert to an Indi driver for this?

Cheers
Gary

Hi petarm,
unfortunately the arduino driver link does not work, and the others are unsuitable for my roof motorization. The one I linked to is perfect for my little obs, unfortunately it is Ascom, not Indi !!

Thanks kengs,
I'm no programmer, so I'll have to see if it is possible for me to edit some stuff. The examples are for an Arduino Due which I have never seen.
Not sure if I can do it as I'm just a user.....not a coder :-)

cheers

check rolloff.ino.boutons is the generic arduino program to use relays and switches to drive roof motors; it's written for Arduino *standard* (UNO, Nano, ...) and I think you won't need to edit it so much.

picciux, I tried uploading the sketch to an UNO, but was unable to connect to it with Ekos (selected arduino roof in Aux section). Have no idea why it would not connect.

cheers
