CG-Antenna RTC-200 interface for yaesu rotors
The RTC-200 is a compact interface for connecting compatible Yaesu rotors to a computer. You can use all Yaesu rotors with 6-pin MiniDIN 'Ext. 'Control' connector, a suitable cable is included. The RTC-200 offers simultaneous two-rotor connections to support satellite antenna systems with azimuth and elevation motors. Towards the computer the interface is connected via USB, a cable is included.
The RTC-200 interface uses the Yaesu rotor control protocol, just like the Yaesu GS-232A / GS-232B interface. This makes this interface compatible with almost all rotor control programs on the market. The interface requires a supply voltage of 8 to 15 V DC, a cable is included.
For the installation you need to download a driver from the manufacturer's website. This download also includes a small rotor control application (Windows only). Download the address www.cgantenna.be/rtc200/RTC200.zip . Contrary to the description in the English manual, the product is no longer supplied with a CD.

- all other models with an 'Ext. Control outlet
What happens if my rotor does not have the 'Ext., Control' socket? In the East. Control socket of a Yaesu rotor (except G-5500) there are simply the signals of the three buttons 'left rotation', 'right rotation' and (if available) 'brake release', as well as the analog signal 'direction' and of course "ground". This grip could be retrofitted relatively easily to other rotors, even those of other manufacturers.
