JMI Mototrac V controller problem

Post by jgltaxlaw » Sat Jul 01, 2006 4:21 pm

Can anyone help me? I'm not very knowlegeable about this stuff.

I have some old equipment - super C8 , beyers mount which I manually guide using a JMI Mototrac V (unit is no longer manufactured...manual controls work perfectly). I'm trying to set up autoguiding. The Mototrac V has a CCD input (ST4 compatable). I purchased a GPUSB relay, ST4 compatable cable and downloaded Guidedog software. Guidedog is talking with the relay ( using Guidedog checker) but the relay does not talk with the Mototrac V. I'm pretty sure that the RJ12 cable wiring is correct.

Can anyone help me diagnose the problem? I'm assuming that I don't need any software interface between Guidedog and the relay. Is that a correct assumption
