Hello Folks,

 

I have this pristine drive controller called an Accutrack Mini.  It looks like I plug my AC cord into it and then plug the Accutrack into a female receptor attached to a 12v battery.  

 

Does anyone have experience with this unit?

 

Thanks,

 

Matt

I have seen/used various flavors of these drive controllers. I believe they were sold with the various pier mounts for the reflectors. Companies like cave, meade, criterion, jaegars, etc. used them to control the ac drives on the units. I am currently looking for a decent unit for my mounts. 

 

They pop up on ebay and here from time to time. I can't tell you a whole lot more than this, just my limited experience with them
