myFP2ESP DIY focuser with wifi control #46752
Hi all, i have started this tread as a follow on to the last few threads on the serial version of the my Focuser Pro 2 DIY project (see www.indilib.org/forum/focusers-filter-wh...html?start=144#46741 ). My understanding is that the serial version now works and a full Wifi version is close but needs some testing.

I am building the Wifi version based on the WEMOS ESP32 board (still waiting for parts to arrive). I have the Arduino code compiling. So hopefully ill have a working focuser soon ready.

If testing is required let me know.

Lots of trial and error, mainly error, but in hindsight, it was easy!!!

Hi all , just to reignite this post, my board has arrived, i have flashed the firmware in station mode and it is working. If i can get access to the indi code to test that would be great.

regards

I will be looking forward to seeing how things turn out.

I would think you could copy the existing myFocuserPro2 files from the INDI source and use those as a start?

I have just posted firmware v112 to sourceforge and v113 to groups.io - myArduinoDIY
The latest v113 pdf is also posted at same.

Hi,
hope it is not much OT, but I got it working wireless via bluetooth. Small changes in focuserconfig.h:
uncomment BLUETOOTHMODE,
comment LOCALSERIAL,
uncomment INDI
and on the End of the file comment
//#ifdef INDI
//#ifndef LOCALSERIAL
//#halt // ERROR Cannot enable INDI without also enabling LOCALSERIAL
//#endif
//#endif
that's all
in Linux bind /dev/rfcomm0 to Bluetooth MAC and in INDI (under EKOS) selected serial , 115200, and /dev/rfcomm0 port
...and Connect :)
