I am using Prositel rotors for my HF towers and eme system.
The old Prositel rotors are using motors with a fan. The motor is straight
up. What I have done is remove the fan of the motor and put a magnet on the
shaft, where the fan was.
A reed contact gives me the pulses I need. This is working fine!
The newer Prositel rotors have different motors with no fan...
I am using Green Heron control boxes to control all my rotors.
For the newer rotors I have to use the potentiometer. I don't like this
because calibration is difficult.
Is there anyone who uses a modern Prositel rotor with potentiometer who
CHANGED this to a reed contact system?
Of course the use of a rotary encoder is better but till now The Green Heron
Rotor box does not support this.
