The M2 RC2800PXEL is our Economy Grade single axis controller. The RC2800PXEL was developed for the M2 Elevation Motor Models (MT-1000A and MT-3000A) and our “Commercial Grade” AZ/EL Pedestal Models (AE1000) & (AE1000CB). The M2 RC2800PXEL uses a Microchip PIC16F876/20-SP for Micro processing user commands, M2 software and EEprom for memory. User modes include: (3) Operational / Run Modes and (17) configurable modes including (10) programmable presets.
New switching power supply allows operation from 86 ~ 264VAC input.
The M2 RC2800PXEL uses PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) for speed control, allowing for full torque at the slowest input speed. Location heading from the motor assembly is supplied via an Open Loop Circuit to the controllers’ microprocessor.
Many off the shelf software packages are available that support the M2 Software Protocol, including Ham Radio Deluxe, SATPC 32 and NOVA for window.
Computer interface to the RC2800PXEL is via RS232.
