Yaesu SCU-17 CAT-interface with integrated sound card
The Yaesu SCU-17 is an interface for executing digital operating modes for almost all current Yaesu transceivers. The SCU-17 functions as a USB sound card, then only you need a USB cable between the interface and the computer. All signals galvanically Island interface to avoid potential ground loops. Thus the audio-in and audio out, PTT, FSK signals CAT and are transmitted. Key signals are separated by Opto-isolators, the audio signals of transformer coupling.
The SCU-17 is protected by a metal box to avoid problems of HF radiation. There are two control dials on the front panel for NF-levels (input, output). In this way the level of modulation can be adjusted in seconds without having to bother with the dialog box of the computer's sound card. In addition, the front panel has three LEDs that display the status of ' power ', ' PTT ' and ' FSK. The SCU-17 uses the USB port as power.
The expedition includes several cables, which simplifies working with existing Yaesu transceivers. Some models require an optional cable. The SCU-17 is designed so that even the classic RS-232 transceivers with a modern computer can be connected via USB.
The installation requires you to download and install the "virtual COM port Driver" on the company's website on Yaesu. Caution: install before you connect the interface to your computer! Drivers can be found on www.yaesu.com under ' products ', ' FT_DX1200 ', ' Files ', ' APOL-17 USB Driver (Virtual COM Port Driver).
