Information
                                    Our ALL NEW, GREEN LED, PIC rotator controller is packed
with new features including
AUTO-CALIBRATE, AUTO SLOW DOWN as limits are approached, ONE
STEP PROGRAMMING
saving all changes by exiting the program mode. SOFTWARE
UPDATES directly
from our “m2inc.com” website Also included is increased
circuitry and reed switch
protection. Of course computer control has also been
improved. The new RC-2800PX
now accepts fractional inputs like 138.7 degrees and the
Auto-calibrate command from a
computer or remote site. What we did not change is front and
back panel layout so it
doesn’t require re-learning the controls and the actual
operation is almost identical to the
old units. Everything is just a bit smoother and easier. The
new PIC microprocessor lends
itself to easier custom programming for special rotator
control functions. This custom program
can be downloaded directly through the RS-232 port on your
RC-2800PX from our
site on the WEB. Of course this new controller works with
any of our older OR-2800DC rotators.
It can also be easily modified to work with MOST of our
older AC (OR-2800AC)
units as well. By ordering an RC-2800PPX controller this
design can control a Prop Pitch
Rotator with all the same features. If you have a very
custom rotator system using a large
AC or DC motor of almost any voltage or phase (like 3 phase
240 AC) the RC-2800PX
design can control your rotator system. This same controller
also controls our line of Elevation
rotators (Positioners) like the MT-1000, MT-3000, MT-4000
and the largest, MT-
5000. The Elevation controller can be linked to the AZ
controller and both then can be
controlled by computer through a single RS-232 line. We also
have a Dual controller (RC-
2800PRKX) in one rack mount case to control an AZ-EL system.
The new RC-2800PX
controller it can handle any gear ratio from 1000 to over
50,000:1
Our OR-2800DC rotator is now supplied with a 60” PIGTAIL and
a WATER TIGHT
HOUSING for a terminal strip. This creates an easy access,
trouble free control cable
connection. Your control cable can have as few as 2 motor
wires (see the “size VS distance”
information later in manual) and a small single shielded
lead for the position feedback.
