Norman Hamann created a new topic ' Indi Driver for Serial Command Device (e.g. a motor)' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hi
i have a usb device which i current control via a serial terminal program by send two commands to the /dev/ttyUSB2 device using a fixed baud rate
[STRG0][SMOV] -> opens the panel
[STRG270][SMOV] -> closes the panel

I would like to have this as a very basic indi driver so I can include this into my automation script and stay within ekos.

There is no limit switches so basically only toggle via the two positions. Is there a simple generic indi drive which allows sending a serial command
and asigning this to one switch or two switches in the panel?

thanks
Norman

Norman Hamann created a new topic ' EQ8-R direct USB connection to EKOS/Stellarmate' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hi

I have a new EQ8-R which arrived yesterday. It is all connected but I cant establish connection in Ekos when I connect the mount using the USB port directly with the PI.
The USB device is recognised and assigned as USB0. I changed baud rate to 115000, but still no joy.

Any ideas?

I can connect the mount using windows and usb cable and the Skywatcher software..just on Indi/Ekos it doesnt work.
Please help me. Spend4 hrs fiddling in a perfectly good night.

regards
Norman
