[Keypad-V5] [ap-gto] 1800 Slew Speed with Mach2GTO, CP5, V5 hand controller, APCC-PRO


Eric Weiner
 

I sent you a private response on this. Thanks.

Eric,

For the Mach 2, the max slew rate is 1800x, and the max button rate is 1200x.

The 1800x button rate is not available on any mount, probably for safety reasons.

-Ray

And when I initialized from the hand controller just now (no power cycle because I didn’t initialize from APCC for
those photos) I got the option for 1800 Slew but only 1200 button on the hand controller. See attached shot video.

the AP supplies cable and power supply. Just now when I initialized I’m only given the option to select 1200 for slew
and button. I confirmed >24V with the online meter and a Fluke. Please see photos. Suggestions?

Slew and Button or just Slew? I only get to select slew at 1800 at 24V. Button is limited to 1200.

Eric,

18-24V will give you 1800x

12-17V will give you 1200x

Marj,



I really should proof read what I type before I hit send. Atrocious.



This is likely just my misunderstanding of how the slew rates work. There is a Slew Rate
setting in both APCC and the Hand controller which allows a setting of 1800, but the button rates for both are limited
to 1200 (not 1600, that was my mistake in the first message). So the more correct question is why is the button rate
limited to 1200?



Sorry about the terrible typing and presentation of my first question.



v/r

Eric
