Hi,

Ok so this is my first post so apologies if this is in the wrong place or doesn't even make sense...

I am working with a satellite dish controller which operates and points the dish based on a 'counts' value. The range of counts is 31 - 10819 and the look angle range is 47° East to 47° West. I am trying to calculate the count value for a position in the arc but the controller is non-linear so working out the counts per angle value and multiplying that by the look angle doesn't work.

I'm not sure if it is even possible to do the calculation but I have a few reference points in the arc and their count values if that helps:

47°E = 31 Counts

42°E = 344 Counts

33°E = 1022 Counts

21°E = 2158 Counts

10°E = 3563 Counts

3°E = 4496 Counts

-8°W = 6105 Counts

-18°W = 7554 Counts

-27.5°W = 8802 Counts

-37.5°W = 9877 Counts

-47°W = 10819 Counts

If that makes enough sense for anyone to have any ideas or solutions then any help would be very gratefully received!

Thank you!

Tom
