Directable Mirror - Controller

Part of the modular system design. This is a simple micro-controller in a weatherproof case. It has connectors for cables to a number of panels and for the controlling computer. The controller provides power for the panels and drives the normal sun tracking and setup movement patterns under the direction of the controlling computer.

The controllers do all the work of driving the panels in preset patterns so that the controlling computer is only required when changing the behaviour of the system. For many systems the supplier could set the system up with a laptop rather than needing to leave a controlling computer.
