VIEW Abstract

VIEW EntRYWZ1307_Gumbrell

This controller is for a radio telescope that’s designed to observe the universe at the Hydrogen Line emission—a frequency of 1,420 MHz (21 cm wavelength). The radio telescope consists of a 1.7-m dish antenna mounted on a motorized azimuth/elevation mount. It is steerable in any direction above the horizon. A WIZnet WIZ550io Ethernet module provides the connectivity to the antenna controller, allowing the telescope to be located with a clear view of the sky and the operator and controlling computers to be located elsewhere, interconnected by the Internet.
