The MT-1000A is a rugged, mid-size elevation mechanism designed to handle the most common EME and satellite antenna systems. It has been designed with a powerful, low backlash, double worm gear reduction and a full circumference ball bearing main boom rotation system. A full 360 degree rotation of the main crossboom makes array assembly and maintenance a breeze. The 3 inch main bearings handle up to a 3 inch diameter crossboom which rotates on axis with the weight centered over the top of a supporting tower. A powerful new permanent magnet dc servo motor produces 2 pulses per each rotation, resulting in a .1 degree pointing accuracy and repeatability. Speed range is spectaculargoing from 0 to 90 to 180 degrees in 30 seconds at top speed #9, down to 5 minutes low speed #1. Full output torque is produced at even the slowest speed.
The M2RC2800PXEL controller with RS232 interface is compatible with Nova and Sky moon tracking programs, or manual and straight terminal keyboard entry. The controller features speed control, travel limits and 10 preset headings.
The MT-1000A is designed to handle up to eight 36 foot Yagi’s. It is perfect for large satellite arrays/EME combos, or just for modest antenna systems where the weather may be too much for smaller mechanisms.
Even with all its power and ruggedness, the MT-1000A is light weight (24 lb.). Fabricated from aluminum with judicious use of steel where needed, M2 has succeeded in filling the gap between the light duty Yaesu 5500 and the heavy duty M2 MT-3000AEL. An attractive unit with its silver aluminum and gold zinc steel worm drive ring, these units impress even the most sophisticated user.The M2OR2800P azimuth rotator is a perfect mate for the MT-1000A and, of course, we have an optional dual rackmount AZ-EL controller (RC2800PRK) with the same features for both units.
