“Usually a roof systems reports opened only if the running end switch sensor report on and this mean roof completly opened.”
I was expecting the same behavior from the Talon6, but in reality it’s not the case ¯_(ツ)_/¯.
So i have to manage that to prevent catastrophic situation and avoid any goto in dragscript prior confirmation. Here is why i wrote Achille in the first place.
I know that switch sensor status can be used via viking (i already use viking for 12VDC and USB switching of the Pegasus). But as far as we are in the E-Eyes hosting facility we have no wiring between the talon roof and any of our I/O card. The Talon6 is only plugged to the AAG CloudWatcher.
And, if i correctly understood; the Ascom Dome Class don’t manage/report any switch state anyway.
So Achille is just used here to get switch confirmation of mount parking before closing Talon in case of an emergency managed by voyager (that’s a double check, but also an alert management !).
In the case of Talon6, the hardware is prevent roof closing if the MAP mount at park is not confirmed. But if Talon6 is able to manage emergency situation (Rain, Power failure), park the mount and close the roof with a hardware confirmation…
I’ve preference for managing emergency with voyager when we are imaging, because i also need to correctly warm the camera before shutdown, and voyager dragscript does a great job here
In any other case, voyager idle (dragscript not running), the Talon6 will take command to put the observatory in safety.
