Need control of an AZ/EL rotator, or two azimuth rotators from a single interface?

The ERC-M is your solution.

  • Sold in 3 versions: RS232 kit, USB kit, SMD assembled for both or either RS232 and USB control. The kit versions use through-hole components.
  • ERC-M can be connected direct to any rotator that uses a remote connector like Create and many Yaesu rotators. For other rotators, there are a variety of connections used or the optional Rotorcard with relays can be attached. See the ERC-M rotator selection guides further down this page.
  • Optional:  Slimline case for ERC-M circuit board
  • Optional:  External housing for AZ/EL rotators only with front panel readout of directional settings.
  • Optional:  LAN control

Practical examples of uses for ERC-M:

  • The most common application is to use ERC-M to control an AZ/EL rotator like the Yaesu G5400/G5500/G5600, with AZ and EL controlled separately.
  • Two yagis on two azimuth rotators in a stacked configuration with HyGain rotators on each? Or one HyGain and one Yaesu? Or any other combination of 2 rotators? Use single ERC-M unit > cables > Rotorcards for each rotator. Use the PstRotator software package sold by YO3DMU to control 2 rotators with a single port. PstRotator interfaces to almost every ham software package available, Ham Radio Deluxe, contest loggers, etc. You will be able to run both rotators from a contest logger like N1MM+ with a single ERC-M, 2 Rotorcards, and the PstRotator software interface. See the YO3DMU page by clicking this link.

Reading the rotator list, a sample line would read:

Yaesu

G-5400 with DIN-connector

Azimuth&Elevation

8-pin DIN

 


In this case, the output from the 15 pin ERC-M board connector (both halves supplied with unit, one PC board mount, the other for making your cable) would be connected to the 8-pin DIN control jack on the rear of the G-5400 control box.  You need a multi-wire cable and an 8 pin DIN connector, also available from us.

HyGain

T2X

Azimuth

rotor-card

 


For the T2X, the 15 pin ERC-M board connector (both halves supplied with unit, one PC board mount, the other for making your cable) connects to the Mini-DIN jack on the Rotorcard.  Mini-DIN cable supplied with Rotorcard.  Terminal blocks on the Rotorcard are wired to connections inside the rotator box to actuate the rotator.

 

We offer cables and connectors as accessories.
