Compatibility

Post by user7483 »

I purchased a used dual motor focuser to go with a motor focus kit motor but I cannot get it to make the motor move. The controller has the db9 connection and the motor has the rj42 connection. I got the adapter to connect a rj cable to the db9 but nothing happens. are these not compatible?

It is compatible and requires our cable (SKU: PEG-CMOT-RJ45DB9) and a gender change only adapter.

I've purchased the cable and still I get nothing. The software shows version 3.1 but this is definitely not a 3.1 dual motor focuser. What am I missing?

Seems that you have the latest firmware release for this device. (This is the firmware you are talking about).
I am not very certaint that the device you have works. If you can see the position in software but the motor does not move then something bad happens with the controller.
