The RemoteBox is an universal antenna switch controller, compatible with most of the market; examples of these antenna switches are: SixPack (2×6), SJ2W (1×6 y 2×6), MicroHAM (Six Switch, Double Six Switch, ..), RemoteQTH (1×6, 2×6), Ameritron (RCS-8, RCS-10), DX Engineering Antenna Switches (DXE-RR8B-HP, DXE-RR8B-SD, DXE-RR2X8B ), etc. In this way the RemoteBox can handle any of these switches which replaces the original controller.

Also the RemoteBox can be connected to a computer, then you can handle the antennas through RBM program driving the antenna switch locally or remotely (eg via Internet).

 

It also includes a BandData input (2 BandData inputs with models: 2×6 or 2×8) so it can read the band in which the radio is operating and automatically switched the antenna. This prevents human error to change the band on the radio and hanging out with the a wrong antenna. The unit supports the following antenna switchs: 1×6, 1×8, 2×6 or 2×8 or Vertical Phased antennas: 1×4 In models with 2 outputs (2×6 or 2×8) you can assign priorities to resolve conflicts when the same antenna is selected to the 2 radios. The RemoteBox doesn’t allow to select the same antenna on both radios. The RemoteBox includes a display where it’s displayed the antenna selected and name, allowing to customize the positions of the antennas. It includes a quick release system hoses. Also it includes an auxiliary output that can be used to automatically switch filters (eg ICE Model 419 or similar). Thus when reading through BandData which band is the Radio, not only switches the antenna but switched the filters on the right side via this Aux port.

Features
There are 5 Model available
  • RemoteBox 1×4: 1 output and 4 antennas. This is an special version for 4 element Phased Verticals
  • RemoteBox 1×6: 1 output and 6 antennas.
  • RemoteBox 1×8: 1 output and 8 antennas.
  • RemoteBox 2×6: 2 outputs and 6 antennas.
  • RemoteBox 2×8: 2 outputs and 8 antennas.
How does it work

The RemoteBox is not a simple antenna switch. Since it can be controlled by a computer, it is the perfect choice for a Remote Antenna control. In addition, by connecting by Band Data (or interface by voltage level) with its radio, RemoteBox reads the band in which it is operating and automatically switches its antenna, which simplifies automation station and eliminates the possible human errors.

Vertical Phased Antennas

An special version is available to control 4 element phased verticals (example TK5EP) with the following truth table:

Directions, phasing and relay powering
Direction K1 K2 K3 Ant 1 Ant 2 Ant 3 Ant 4
NW 1 1 1 180° -90° -90°
NE* 0 0 0 -90° 180° -90°
SE 1 1 0 0 -90° 180° -90°
SW 0 0 1 -90° -90° 180°
Hardware
  • 5/12V relays: The RemoteBox can handle any Antenna Switch that uses 5 or 12VDC relays.
  • Switches up to 8 antennas and 2 outputs: The RemoteBox supports antenna switchs up to 8 antennas and 2 outputs.
  • Antenna Monitoring:  Thanks to RBM program can be activated and monitored antennas.
  • Microcontroller: The ARS-USB is based on a high performance Flash microcontroller @ 48Mhz.
  • USB native: The microcontroller includes a fully featured USB that is compliant with the USB Specification Revision 2.0. z.
  • Bootloader: It includes a self programmability; it means that it can update itself a new firmware versión.

  • RemoteBox

    El RemoteBox es un mando universal de control de conmutadores de antenas y compatible con la mayoría del mercado. Algunos ejemplos son:
    • SixPack (2×6)
    • SJ2W (1×6 and 2×6)
    • microHAM (Six Switch, Switch Double Six, ..)
    • RemoteQTH (1x6, 2x6),
    • DX Engineering (DXE-RR8B-HP, DXE-RR8B-SD, DXE-RR2X8B )
    • Ameritron RCS-10
    De esta forma el RemoteBox puede manejar directamente el conmutador de antena original manual, automáticamente por la radio (Band data) o por medio del programa RBM (local o remotamente) También se hay una versión especial de controlador para enfasar 4 verticales.
