Rotator Genius

Rotator Genius is a smart rotator controller which uses a magnetic sensor for reading azimuth. It can be controlled by a Windows or Android app.
rg-overview

MOTOR CONTROL UNIT

The central unit can be mounted on the towers base or placed inside the shack.

Rotator Genius can be used to power:

  • Low Range motors from from 12V to 48V with up to 15A of current.
  • High Range motors single phase from 110V to 220V AC.
  • High Range three phase motors from 110V to 380V AC.

A single Rotator Genius can control two separate motors.

SENSOR

The sensor uses a magnetic compass to read azimuth. This insures you will never have problems with pulse, pot meter sensors, broken indicators or innacurate readings.

Housed in a waterproof box for tower or boom mounting.

Accuracy within 1 degree. No need for initial calibration.

User programmable true north and magnetic north correction.

A single Rotator Genius can control two separate sensors.

NETWORK CONTROL

Controlled from a computer or mobile device. The user interface is intuitive and can be setup for internet remote control.

Will be integraded with FlexRadio SDR and the Mestro front panel in a future software update.

FLEXIBILITY

Motor control unit is compatable with most rotators on the market.

DIP switches on the device are used to configure:

  • AC or DC motors.
  • Output voltage is configurable in 25% steps of the input voltage. (25%, 50%, 75% or 100%)
  • Low or High Range motors.
  • Slow Start or Break motors.
  • Single or Three Phase motors.

THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE

Rotator Genius is now supported and can be controlled by N4PY software. Communcation is performed using a TCP/IP connection insuring maximum stabillity and reliability. The documentation is available in the application help files.
