SPID, type RAK Azimuth ROTATOR

Azimuth rotator incl. controller

This SPID Azimuth Rotator (type RAK) is a medium to heavy duty antenna rotator
in the same general class as the HyGain TailTwister or Yaesu G-1000/2800 but with advanced digital features.

NEW: All SPID Rotators we supply do have the build in tracking interface with USB version as standard !

Mechanical complexity is reduced to a minimum by utilizing a simple double worm gear drive system. Position readout is sensed by a magnetic reed switch.
The controller has a full complement of features, including digital readout. Controller features may be upgraded in the future with a plug in PROM.



Rotating torque is in the 1,400 to over 3,200 lb-inch range, with between 12 and 18 volts DC to the motor. The 18 volt measured torque is 3,240 lb-inches (366 Newton meters). This is significantly more than any other rotator in the same price range, and even higher than other rotators costing nearly twice as much (Yaesu 2800 or Orion 2800). adaptor for munting on a base plate in a head mast unit.

The SPID AZ Rotator has 1 degree positioning accuracy, Coax can pass through center of rotator - prevents cable damage, Low voltage - high torque DC gear head motor.
