Dear Tom,
I left rolloffino standard (pinout works perfectly for me). No modifications were needed and it runs like a charm.
It runs like a charm, was even much easier to get it working so I completely ditched RRCI.
Thank you a lot.
Best,
Michael

Dear Tom,
Thank you very much. This is what I needed to know.
Yes, mine is the Uno and I have a one-button system. The amount of travel is preprogrammed and it has a soft start/stop. All I need is the relay to send a pulse to the motor.
Thank you so much.
Best,
Michael

Sorry, Tom.
I need to disturb you. After checking your links (which helped me a lot) it seems to me like your rolloff.ino.standard is the easiest way to go.
If I understood it correctly, all I really need to do is adjust the pins in the first couple of rows and I should be good to go. Although the pinout for relays seems to be already correct.
Could you just confirm that the script is using Relay1 for switching? The pinout for sensors seems to be even better than expected from RRCI so I think it is even easier to just switch connections.
Looks to me like rolloff.ino is the thing I was searching for the whole time.
Thank you
Best regards,
Michael

Dear Wotalota,
Rolloffino actually looks great. I'd prefer to use the hardware and get your driver running.
I'll have a look into it and hope I'll figure out how to set it up. Can I contact you if I get stuck?
Best,
Michael

Dear Jasem,
I just tried. Curious if he will respond. My best hope was that similar protocols are shared with one of the INDI roof drivers.
Thank you.

Hi there,
Can maybe anybody tell me if there is the possibility to use RRCI roll of roof controller (create.arduino.cc/projecthub/cfar/rollin...face-rrci-fb851f?f=1) in EKOS?
Would be great if there was an easy way to connect to it via KStars. If there is any option please let me know.
Best,
Michael

Hi there,
I did a standard sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade now nothing is working anymore.
I can't even do anything. When I start INDI no camera is shown (ASI120MC-S and ASI1600MM) and my Skywatcher mounts only give me a: EQMod mount driver crashed, restart in...
Anybody else got any issues?

For the EQ6-R it is easy. You start EKOS and the INDI tab opens. If you go to the mount there is a tab with periodic error correction. There are only 4 buttons PEC training for RA and DEC (just guide and run the training then) and turn on PEC for RA and DEC.
You may need to hover the mouse over those buttons because at least in my systems they are not readable.

Michael created a new topic ' PEC with HEQ5' in the forum. 3 years ago

Hi there,
I recently had an EQ5 and EQ6-R running and now tried connecting to an HEQ5 directly from USB to the mount.
Weirdly the EQ5 and EQ6 were recognized in the INDI Firmware tab, the HEQ5 is found as custom mount. Also, the periodic error correction tab is not visible.
Does anyone have any ideas to get PEC back?
Thanks in advance.

My Guider is a 120 but my imaging camera is a 1600 cooled mono. Didn't get to try guiding since the 1600 connected perfectly but didn't seem to respond.
I also prefer Ubuntu Mate but unfortunately, it is not available for RP4 jet.
