New rotor management with PIC-controler

“Start to build a new management system with PIC-controler for the Antenna-rotor”

The next pictures will give the few of the development of the antenna-rotor interface
with a PIC 16F84 controler. The development is started on a breadboard to find the
correct parts and programming of the PIC controler.
I have started with the most easy program ‘Hello World’
The next step was the basis program and he 3rd stage was the connection to a small relais to stear the antenna rotor.

The next schema will give you the information where we had start with.
In the next weeks we have to test the combination of the hard- and software.
To show the full page of the schema, click twice on the picture !

Rotor_clockOn the schema you see the X-tal with a value of 10 Mhz, with any other value you have to change the timer (time) in the PICBasic routine.
