New Version!

The new version of ' Mk2 ' SB-2000 interface now supports two virtual serial ports! This is very useful because not all computer programs can support mixed functions like PTT and CW, more CAT on the same serial port. With the new version you have two virtual serial ports, one for PTT and CW/FSK, and another door to control CAT. SB-2000 Mk2: sound card and interface CAT controlled via USB.
SB-2000 Mk2 is an economical interface for radio with USB connector. (USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 full speed supported). There is no more need to have serial and parallel ports on your computer. The interface allows control of PTT, FSK and manipulation CW via CAT and interfacing to the soundcard for digital modes: RTTY, FAX, SSTV, PSK32 etc (using the sound card of your computer).

All signals are galvanically coupled through transformers. The power is taken from the computer's USB port. In the package you will find the CD with USB driver for Win 2000, XP, Vista and Win7. Mac OSX and Linux are supported without any driver installation. Dimensions: 130x75x45mm.

The cable (sold separately) contains all the necessary cables to connect the radio (CAT and data, USB and audio for your computer). The SB-2000 Mk2 includes a RS-232 to USB level converter, allowing the use of radios equipped with RS-232 interface (FT-1000, FT-2000, FT-450, FT-950 etc.). The connection with the radio is made with a cable that now allows the manipulation on CW.

Note: Some radios that support HF and VHF (e.g. IC-746, IC-7400) do not have separate PTT lines for HF (HSEND) and VHF (VSEND). SB-2000 buttons just the line so it can be used without modifications only HSEND on HF. To use the interface to VHF/UHF as well, you must modify the connector or interface for key HSEND and VSEND simultanously (ponte HSEND and VSEND). The radio as the IC-706Mk2G and IC-7000 needs to have a set of menu item, so also the Tx key HSEND VHF and UHF.
Note on using the SB-2000 with ICOM IC-7000 :
The cable has an internal bridge IC13 SB2K- between the lines of coding for FSK and CW. This causes the fitting with a single line, RTS, and works well with the IC-706, IC-7200 etc But with the IC-7000 a high current is seen on these lines. The effect is that the fan starts immediately after plugging in the cable. In rare cases the IC-7000 may be damaged. Quick fix: do not insert the connector CW from SB-2000 for the IC-7000. Makes the interface unusable for telegraphy. Other modes such as PSK31, RTTY, etc are not affected.
