    Yes we have allowed for that in the Arduino code and it does make a difference. Up to 13 degrees of lag during solar noon which equates to about 22 percent losses. So we are all over that. Although after many test runs and much deliberation between liked minded individuals we have now calculated a solution for dopey brains during daylight savings times, which is duct tape. It doesn't fix stupid but it sure does muffle the sound

    Hi Aus Thanks for clearing that up. It would explain why I couldn't find any info on the topic. Off to the supplier.... Tony
  3. Hi all. I'm looking at upgrading my Arduino controlled 2axis solar array. I have the Arduino controlling the panels with a few yearly adjustments manually changed. I'd like to upgrade the system to a Jazz if possible as we have played around with them a bit before and Unitronics hardware is more robust. We have a JZ10-11-R31 Question is I have an algorithm the tells me the position of the sun using a RTC which outputs Altitude and Azimuth and the array goes to that point, how do I go about using complex math like this in U90. ie sin, cos, tan? Can I import a C+ formula to use? Or do you know of someone who has done similar? Any help much appreciated
