It takes 36 volts DC.Motorized... High voltage?
36vdc good info. Thank you.It takes 36 volts DC.
But you will need to build a pulse position sensor to work with modern dish motor controllers, like the VBox or ASC1.
The original Birdview position sensor was an analog variable resistor. Modern controllers use pulses. I built a magnet wheel disc and used a reed sensor to create pulses when the motor rotates.
There are various threads on this site for building a magnet wheel position sensor. If you are interested I can find them for you.
