Tracking Micro-Controller Unit (MCU)
The MCU provides a fully integrated “upper level” tracking controller for Euclid's dual-axis and single-axis positioners.
The MCU is a multi-interfaced computing unit, which is capable of performing target's tracking algorithm management and provide client's host PC with a simple interfacing protocol to Euclid's positioners operation.
The MCU interfaces with host via Ethernet, using "High level" commands, such as: "Point to", "Track", "Search", "Stow", "Stop" and more.
Target's tracking parameter data can also be "injected" to MCU via RS-232 channel.
