Hello. I started developing a new control unit for the EGIS ROBOT positioner. I used the Raspberry Pi 3 and the Node.js web server as the control software. It communicates with this unit from a normal web browser. So all you have to do is buy the mechanical part of EGIS with motors and control it via this new HW. Another possibility of use is to control two traction motors, such as the SuperJack. The HW prototype is ready and tested. I'm still creating software. If anyone wants to join, I will definitely not refuse help. I'm not very experienced programmer. Details can be found at Introduction I expect a discussion not only about writing the program, but also about the correctness of language translations using Google. Thank you for any help.

I'm not thinking about it yet. My program is in the trial phase. The purpose of EGIS ROBOT is for owners of large satellite dishes, ie potential hunters of weak signals. Connection via coaxial cable introduces unnecessary attenuation into the signal path. Certainly, however, the new control unit can communicate with the satellite receiver via a network (intranet). So direct control using the plugin in Enigma is possible. But I'm not that far.
