Homebrew Rotator and Control via Lan...
Rotator: 24v wheelchair motor/gearbox 23:1 coupled to 60:1 worm drive gearbox via
double chain sprockets. Mast coupled to gear box with double chain sprockets.
Control: The black device directly above the battery is a 100amp full wave bridge
rectifier for battery/charger isolation. Above the terminal block is a 25w switching voltage regulator.
To the right of the terminal block in an Arduino Mega 2560 with internet shield and right of that is a 50
amp regenerative dc motor driver. The rotor is silent and fast at speeds from 1 deg/sec to 8 deg/s.
What my current rotator interface looks like in Chrome Browser (battery voltage not yet implemented)...
