    Hi I need help with the design of a small printed circuit, while I have done some electronic circuits, I have never designed or made a printed circuit. So I am looking for some generous guy to design it for me, so I can etch it out myself.

    Here's the wiring schematic, and a picture of one already built, ignore the top left picture as that's an old design. And incase your wondering; its all from this site. http://99mpg.com/resources/downloads/

    That looks so simple you may as well do it with veroboard.

    Is this for that huge steerable solar panel machine ?

    Do you actually need a vertical detection circuit ? I'd guess a simple run up to a microswitch set at 50 or so degrees would be adequate.

    The morning or evening sun maybe all you get, so you realy need to go vertical if you can.

    Hi Brian, hadn't thought of veroboard, good idea I will use that. Not point in going for single axis, the extra cost for double is minimal. I am already using a linear actuator to lift the panel, so I might as well control the angle.
