Arduino and Helicon Remote

Hello,

my community and me are using Helicon Focus for micro mineral photography. Our stacks are often more than 100 images. I will use helicon remote together with an arduino board to control my z stage. Is there a way to bring helicon remote together with an arduino board which also can be controled by serial commands.

The goal should be to set a start point, an andpoint and the numer of steps and the rest should do helicon remote. Make a picture drive some steps, wait a few seconds ... and the same again.

I already saw you did the same with trinamic stepper motors. This motors are very expensiv and difficult to get. For my arduino board, stepper motor and drive all to gether i spend less then 10€.

Kind regards Stefan

You could download the serial protocol documentation for Trinamic and implement it in your Arduino board.
