Help with dual axis solar tracker
Good day everyone, I'm new here. My name is Kevin, I am from just outside Guelph Ontario.
We bought a house that has a triple array of solar panels controlled by hardware and programing designed by Cannibal Robotics. The company that installed it (Solar Direct Canada) has stopped supporting it as Cannibal Robotics seems to have disappeared.
We are have issues with hardware, as components on the control boards keep failing. I have a friend that is good with electronics, so we can do some diagnoses and replace parts, but I am hoping to come up with a more robust system or at least one more reliable.. I can upload the schematics as Solar Direct was able to supply them, including the programing.
As we do not have experience with controlling or programing this system, I am hoping for some suggestions from the group. I can upload the programing or send via email or pm. We are hoping to understand the initial set up and zeroing the system to allow us to calibrate it properly.
The read me text document with the programing has this as a note in the text document.
