Description

Universal K3NG Rotator Controller

 

This controller board suits a regular Yaesu G-5500 dual azimuth/elevation controller and also accommodates various other configurations, such as a azimuth only rotator along with a linear actuator for elevation.  Also features PWM derived speed voltage control output (ie; Yaesu G-800DXA etc), i2c remote sensors input via bus extender, and a PWM interface for external PWM carrier driver board.
