This jscript emulation is now retired - but is here as a "how to" reference for me!
Go to this link for the Windows based emulator
|status | stow | stop | track | ha | dec||(Hour Angle and Declination)|
|parameters for ha and dec:||speed | dest | encoder|
|parameters for speed:||slow | fast | auto|
|parameters for dest:||base 60 e.g. 23:59:59.99|
|parameters for track:||on | off|
|parameters for encoder:||read | set <base16>|
Some single click tests...
|status||ha speed slow||dec dest 85:30:0.0||ha encode read||track on|
|stop||dec speed auto||dec encode read||track off|
|stow||ha encoder set 0042|
|dec encoder set fe44|
dec dest 5:0:0.0
ha dest 2:30:30.0
THIS EMULATION DOESN'T WORK WITH NetSCAPE!
|0.008||Add stop, encode and track commands.
Encode set sets the optical encoder position offset for 0 degrees. This command will store the offset in NV RAM. This command will be enabled by a separate external test switch on the controller. This will ensure that the controller is "idiot proof" and won't slap the dish into the ground. The test switch will also disable normal commands - so the controller can't be left in Configuration Mode.
|0.007||Independent axis rotation allowed. Add stow command.|
|0.006||Braking, end stops added, Independent axis rotation interlock added|
|0.005||OI prefix removed
Hard code the limits:
HA Valid Range from -06:01:00.0 to + 06:01:00.00
