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 24Vdc. Some Yaesu models suported are:
- G800S, G800SA, G800DXA, G800SDX
- G1000A, G1000SA, G1000S, G1000DXA, G1000SDX, G1000DXC
- G2800DXA, G2800DXC
- or the new G450ADC
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.
