Hello,
I need info on the General Instruments 2000PS. Either a schematic or at least a pin out for the 6 pin connector.

Thanks,
Stan

My GI2000PS (With actuator and dish) is being retired from Satellite duty, and will be acting as a solar oven. The dish will be coated with mylar, and the mount will be adjusted to track the sun. I need the pin outs of the DIN connector to connect to my tracking system.
Thanks for pointing me to the owners manual, but unless I missed it, I didn't see the DIN Pin Outs. Looking from the inside of the Power Supply, it appears that 3 wires plus ground are used. Looking at the 5 pin DIN from the back (outside) of the box, and starting on the left I see EAST, WEST, PULSE, N.C., N.C. and Ground to the bottom connector. (N.C. = No Connection)
My question is what kind of signal goes to these 3 pins to make it work?
For example, I don't want to apply +12 DC to East, just to see smoke come out of the unit because it was expecting +5 VDC.
Any body know what the signails going into the 5 Pin DIN should look like?
Thanks,
Stan


stan there is a book in the manual section

are you looking for the pin out for the DIN cable that connects from the power supply to the gi 2400/2410/2500/2510 ??

IIRC, you just short either east or west to ground to make the dish move. You could probably build a little switchbox fairly easily.
