Inside the v2 rotator


Assembly

Assembly instructions can be found here.

All the parts are placed here. The electronics and firmware to control the motors are placed here. The v2 rotator could be also controlled by the v2.2 controller. The v2.2 rotator controller wiki.

In the v1 board the new firmware hasn't been tested. At first changes in rotator_pins.h header file must be done to match with v1 board pins. But the different mcu Atmega32u4, optiboot bootloader and WDT peripheral may create problems to nominal operation of the rotator.
