This is a special version based on the ARS-USB that was re-designed to be used as a rotor controller or replacement for a Yaesu Control Unit (or similar rotators) that operates in DC.
It includes the same features as the standard ARS-USB adding some extra as:
- Simple and easy calibration at any rotor position in few steps.
- Soft start and stop via a PWM. It allows to have a soft starting/stopping ramp.
- It detects if the potentiometer is out of range and will prevent any accidental problem with the antenna coax. Any problem with the potentiometer or cables are detected inmediately
- If the motor is jammed by any reason, an alarm will be displayed and the appointment will stop. The user will be noticed.
All those watch-dog systems (and some more options) will prevent to generate a problem if the potentiometer is damaged by any cause (any wire broken, moisture, a wrong cable connection, etc).
The ARS-USB_YAESU is a special version based on the ARS-USB that can be used as a replacement or controller for any rotor that operates in DC.
Some Yaesu models suported are:
- G800S, G800SA, G800DXA, G800SDX
- G1000A, G1000SA, G1000S, G1000DXA, G1000SDX, G1000DXC
- G2800DXA, G2800DXC
But it can be used with any motor that works in DC and uses a potentiometer (for instance Emotator 1200). It includes a 5 pin connector for simple wiring with any Yaesu motor.
The ARS-USB_YAESU can be connected to the computer via USB and it’s detected as a serial port, so any program will be able to control it via this serial port. Moreover it emulates a Yaesu GS232A interface; this fact has the advantage that any program that supports a GS232A will support directly the ARS-USB_YAESU.
A program to guide during the setup and calibration is included: ARSVCOM (ARSconf).The calibration of a unit is very simple and includes a step by step guide. Also it allows controlling the rotor with a graphical and friendly user interface. It’s a nice option when you want to control the antenna local or remotely via Internet.
A tool for upgrade the firmware of the ARS-USB is included: Teleloader. With this software, you will upload new releases of the ARS-USB_Yaesu firmware.
