Additional Product Specs
The RC2500 is designed to provide an upgrade path for users of older, unsupported antenna controllers. The large investment in an antenna system is preserved by retrofitting an existing installation with the RC2500. In addition to the ease of use afforded by the industry standard menu scheme of the RC2000 series, the capability of the antenna system can be enhanced to include features such as inclined orbit tracking and PC remote control.

Positioning: Low Voltage Resolver Interface
A reliable all solid-state control section interfaces to many standard antenna-pad-mounted drive housings. Optically coupled drive outputs and limit inputs provide isolation between the outdoor unit and the rack-mounted RC2500. The RC2500 can support a single summary limit input or individual limits for each axis. Antenna Position sensing is performed by high precision resolver system. Overall, the RC2500 is well equipped to handle the demanding requirements for both domestic and international inclined-orbit satellite tracking.
Various configurations or customizations could result in additional fees.
