NEW product of 2018 years!The EQDrive Standard unitrack is a control unit which automates the work of the Equatorial, German, and Alt-Az mounts.  The control unit works with practically any mount operated by a step motor. It supports a wide range of reduction of axes, allowing users to operate their telescope mount through astronomical programs with the established open source ASCOM6.x + EQMOD platforms on your personal computer. Our third iteration of this products now includes support for SynScan consoles and!– reduced weight
– dimensions reduced
– updated element base
– reduced pcb topology– improved compatibility with bluetooth module and SynScan  Specifications:

  • Power supply input: 10-28V, 5A (24V, recommended)
  • Product case: Anode aluminum 100mm x 74mm x 29mm
  • Product weight: 190 grams.
  • For use with bipolar stepper motors
  • Supply voltage of SM drivers: To equally entrance supply voltage.
  • SM winding current: Adjustable 0,1 — 2 A., for comparison in EQDrive STANARD old version, current 0,1-0,8 A
  • Smooth dispersal and braking of SM: Adjustable 0 — 10 se?.
  • Correction of nonlinearity of the course of SM: yes.
  • Axis reduction coefficient: not limited. Recommended 1:1 — 1:2000.

 Benefits EQDrive STANDARD UNITRACK unit :  All EQDrive Standart settings who are made in the EQDrive Config program  remain in non-volatile memory.Settings under the chosen a mount can be kept on PC in the file created for this purpose and in a consequence to consider and write down in eqdrive.Only one the EQDrive block can operate for all  park of the equatorial mounts.From circuitry features in management the most modern components are used: 32-bit controler with clock frequency of 72 MHz, four channels of 12-bit DAC, modern drivers of step engines, drivers are powered by 24 volts from the internal converter of voltages.We use protection from incorrect polarity and galvanic outcome of entrances of USB and Panel (HC).The controller with 32-bit architecture gave us a speed bonus by developing a completely different control algorithm for stepper motors , no steps in the classical form current, all works absolutely without the steps. A stepper motor works as a synchronous motor. This system do not have any analogs in world! It gives us the movement accuracy, noiselessness, smoothness of acceleration / braking of mount.The Acceleration or braking  works at any speeds from 0. 0,5x,from 1x to 5x or from 1x to 800x.  Ability to overloads above, the best moment of acceleration. The EQDrive Standard unit supported slewing speed up to 8,5°/sec (2000x).Higher maintaining accuracy,correction of a form of current of windings of engines (please see pic.)http://astrodevices.net/sites/default/files/EQDrive_2015_05_EN_0.jpgShortcomings of existing solutions:- rough movement- Discrete change in velocity- Dependence on microsteps- Acceleration and deceleration with a push at the beginning and at the- end of movement- Private protocol, limited functionality- The complexity of the formation of non-linear trajectories (spiral, fast asteroids, satellites) EQDrive STANDARD UNITRACK :  Precise mathematical calculations- Stepless algorithm of current in the winding- Nonlinearity correction- Acceleration and deceleration at any speed- One step precise GOTO positioning- Guiding (ST4, ASCOM)- Open protocol ASTEP- Eqmod compatibility- Spiral search
