Hello everyone.

 

After many years working to solve my problems due to loss of connection in the DEC HUB axis, I have found a way, for that reason I would like to share with the entire ASA community, maybe I can help my friends and future buyers.

 

I know I am not the only Person who have suffered such problems, but finally I give up, I think I am not the only person to give up this issue.

 

I hope it helps and sorry for my poor English, maybe it's not the best, but I think understandable within the comunity.

 

Best regards

Lluís Romero.

Hi Lluis,

 

Thanks for the information.

I wonder if this Silex DS-600 can be connected straight to the ethernet connection of the computer, so it can serve as a USB-ethernet converter, and how long the cat cable can be. Thank you in advance for your appreciated answer.

 

Best Regards,
Waldemar

 

edit:

By the way the real problem may have been the internal USB hub. Happened to me too. 

I replaced it and everything worked fine again.

Hello Waldemar,

 

I am in business trip, sorry for the delay to answer you, but I have not too much accessibility in China.

 

I never tried to connect directly to the computer, I always do by router, but as I understand can be possible. Please try to check the web site of Silexeuroope.com and download the Data sheet, it seems is possible.

As I have read you can put an Ethernet cable Cat 6 with up to 100 mt and about the USB cable around 5 mts.

 

Note: When you have said you have replaced the internal USB hub, as I understand you are talking that you sent the mount to ASA to repaired or did you it by yourself? I have been contacting with Martin Puch from ASA, he recommended to send the mount, but too much work for me in this moment, maybe in the future I will send to ASA to handle the internal HUB plus to install the Absolut encoders.

 

Best regards
Lluis.

Hi again Lluis,

 

Thanks for answering from China :-)

 

I did it myself. ASA did not really like that, but it is a bit nonsense to send the mount back for a lot of money, to have a part replaced that  only costs a bit and you can easily replace yourself if you are a little handy... Mine was a DDM60 Pro, so a bit different from a DDM85, but that should not be a problem either.

 

Let me know if you need help by phone or mail.

 

BR

Waldemar
