Potentiometer calibration procedure

arduino

AZ / EL Potentiometers limit calibration PROCEDURE for displaying the correct antenna angles and rotation limits ( 0-359ᴼ / 0-90ᴼ) This is plain text, not a code :)

Motor calibration procedure

arduino

This procedure sets the parameters for the Antenna Speed-Up / Slow-Down Zone. This is plain text, not a code :)

ant-rot-DC-aug2022

arduino

This code is for DC motors, with soft start/stop PWM output. Use electric diagram for DC motors.

ant-rot-AC-aug2022

arduino

This code is for relay output or AC motors. Use electric diagram for AC motors.
