   The DIN connector was for an external preset control that to my 
knowledge never made it into production. The control box has a switch on 
the front that is labeled 'Manual' and 'Preset'. I still have an OR-2300 
in use although the control box long ago bit the dust.

   Here is the schematic for the controller:
If there was a schematic for the rotator I don't have it. But it is the 
typical AC motor setup, limit switches and a 5k pot for direction
