Re: Mount does not stop

Joe Zeglinski


I wonder if a "test exchange" system could be implemented. When really
stumped, in a pinch, it would be nice to get a known working controller and/or
keypad, and cables, on a 7 day debug loan - a credit card buys it, if not
returned in time. That would allow eliminating the servos, and perhaps narrow
down the problem to one of the 3 other components - controller, keypad, or
cables. Such a plan would eliminate time and money lost in shipping the mount
back, which would also needlessly tie up your staff. The test package wouldn't
even have to be the very latest hardware version, so long as it is
known/tested to be in good working order, back at the factory.

Otherwise, one would have to try finding a nearby "good Samaritan", from
the AP group perhaps, who owns the same mount, to try a component swap test
with his controller/cables.

It may be difficult or impossible to duplicate an intermittent problem. If
this happens all the time, then we might be able to find it in the servo,
intermittents sometimes are caused by conditions that we do not experience
(faulty power supply would be one).
