The ARS-Shield is a board that can host an Arduino (i.e. UNO) module adding the capability to interface with a rotor (DC or AC) It’s compatible with K3NG rotator controller who provides the Open Code of his project at the web site: https://blog.radioartisan.com/yaesu-rotator-computer-serial-interface/ If you enjoy the homebrew and you want to design your own rotor controler this ARS-Shield will be a piece surely you will need and appreciate.
The ARS-Shield supports:
- 5 relays (ccw, cw, aux, up, down)
- LCD Display
- 4 buttons
- Azimuth and Elevation optional “Signal Conditioner” for rotors that don’t supply 0-5V on their output.
The ARS-Shield can be used with an Azimuth or Azimuth & Elevation rotors.
As an extra option, we can supply an aluminum case which fits perfectly the ARS-Shield. A 16×2 characters Display and 4 buttons are included.
A signal conditioner PCB is also available for those rotors that supply a voltage feedback < 5V or > 5V. The design includes a Sallen-Key filter to avoid RFI. This PCB unit is delivered assembled and tested.
