Heliostat/Solar Tracker Position Sensing

Using magnetic rotary encoders allows very precise angular sensing. The problem with the devices is that they output data format and rate to fast for easily programmable microcontrollers or serial input to PC. Part of making an open design platform for heliostats and solar trackers is to make the interfacing of these encoders easier, and below video demo’s how that is achieved..
