ARXC Family

ARXC

ARXC modules are ARCO rotator controller accessories for expanded control and extra functionality.

Modules are built in IP65 enclosures, designed to operate outside of the shack.

ARCO supports up to four chained ARXC modules at the same time. ARXC modules connect D-SENSOR port on ARCO, using only 4 wires of regular CAT5 cable.

When extra control cable is not a possible option, ARCO can connect ARXC modules using pair of dedicated ARXC.LoRa modules for wireless connection up to couple of kilometers distance.



ARXC.REL


ARXC RELAY

ARXC.REL is four (4) external relays module allowing to control remote antenna switches, polarization switches, mast preamplifiers or anything what is suitable to be controlled from the ARCO user interface, touch screen or VNC for Internet remote control.

 

ARXC Control

In parallel to rotator control ARCO supports up to four (4) ARXC.REL modules and uses preset buttons or dedicated screen for relays control. Relays can be optionally set as directional antenna control for 8-circle or 4-square antenna showing direction on great circle map.

ARXC.MAG

ARXC MAGNETIC

ARXC.MAG is magnetic azimuth sensor. Mounted on antenna boom reports true antenna azimuth and can serve as a main azimuth sensor when original sensor in the rotator has malfunctioned or as a watchdog sensor to alert user that antenna is no longer beaming to the calibrated azimuth, that may happen if antenna slips in bolt during high wind storm.


ARXC.LORA

ARXC LoRa

ARXC.LoRa is long range communication transceiver module operating on ISM band replacing wired  bidirectional RS-485 communication between ARCO and ARXC modules to wireless RF link.

Very useful in situations when you need to control multiple relays for receive antennas and you don't have necessary control cable laid down.
