FOCUSB WITH NEW MOTOR DC MOONLITE OK

Post by perrette » Sun Jun 10, 2012 11:12 am

Hello
I have just received the "FCUSB" and I have tryed with "FocusPal".
I use "the Crayford Moonlite CS (SCT) + DC motor" (with the new engine DC moonlite).
The FocusPal interface works well, I can connect (the led Red/green works well) but it seems to me that the USB port is not powerful enough to power the 12V engine… the engine does not work :( .
Do you have an idea ? :idea:

Thank you

JL

Oup's Sorry

If I push the connector din at most in the FOCUSB not OK
If I leave 1 mm the contact is OK

I tried with Backyard EOS 2.0.4, FocusMAX it is OK

It is great that works !! (do not push the connector :wink: ...)

Thank you

JL
