EAF random disconnections

Post by niccoc1603 » Sun Oct 06, 2019 4:11 pm

Hi,

I recently installed an EAF. The focuser is working fine, but I get random disconnections.
I am using the EAF with NINA. Connect it with ASCOM driver.

Sometimes the EAF disconnects from NINA. I talked to NINA devs and they say it's a driver issue
Driver 1.0.1.8

This is from NINA logs:

Code: Select all

Hi Sir,
This is due to ASICAP is using the old version SDK, we will fix it in the next release.
You can try to update the ASCOM driver for EAF on our website.

Hi, I am not using ASICAP, so how can it influence EAF disconnections with NINA?

The driver I am using is 1.0.1.8 which is the one currently on your website

Hi,
Sorry that I made a wrong reply, could you try it with ASICAP and does EAF disconnect In ASICAP?
And make sure the power cable is connected stably? Does the power LED flash?
