Yaesu High Performance rotator Systems, Model G-1000DXA are designed to rotate large professional and professional tower mounted antennas under remote control from the operating position of the amateur radio station. These systems include attractive azimuth controllers, which also support an optional computer interface, for automated directional antenna positioning control.
The Yaesu rotator design uses 100 heavy 7/16-in. double-stack circumferential ball bearings to distribute the load over the entire diameter of the housing. This design minimizes stress and wear and virtually eliminates the possibility of destructive water entry: there is no shaft hole in the top of the housing.
Instead of the usual AC motor used in older rotator models, the high performance Yaesu G-1000DXA rotator uses a variable voltage DC motor, eliminating the need for a capacitor. The power of the console is 110/120 volts AC.
The factory-lubricated rotary unit is housed in die-cast aluminum and coated with melamine resin, to ensure maintenance-free operation under all weather conditions. A mast alignment gauge on the rotor housing simplifies precise mechanical alignment during installation.
The sleek desktop controller emulates the design of modern amateur radio transceivers, providing a 360-degree radial indication of the actual azimuth of the antenna. You can select rotational speeds of 40 to 100 seconds per rotation (360 degrees).
