Antenna rotators

On this page you will find:

The "turntable" of your antenna system. You save more by spending a bit more...

Our rotator program comprises the well-known YAESU antenna rotators (same as KENPRO) 'Made in Japan'.
Besides the normal horizontal rotators we offer various vertical rotators as well as satellite rotators for combined horizontal and vertical motion of antennas. Various computer-aided interfaces are available for the larger rotators that allow automatic antenna adjustment. We also offer required accessories for building more sophisticated rotation systems like: Thrust bearing, rotor platforms etc.
General mechanical technical information about the models G-450 to G-1000DXC: Corrosion-proof die-cast aluminum enclosures, additionally coated for complete weather protection. Permanently lubricated for years of smooth, quiet operation. Therefore completely maintenance free! It is possible to center the mast brackets (not possible with models G-450 and G-650) in the middle; then the mast will always be centered independent from the mast diameter (very important when using thrust bearings).
One set of mast clamps are part of the delivery (for G-450 and G-650 the bracket is part of the rotator upper section). In case the rotator will be installed on top of a mast instead on a platform a second set of mast clamps is required (available as additional accessory).

All larger models feature the following specifications:

1000 Kgcm = 10 Kgm ≈ 100 Nm.

G-450C 

Medium-duty applications for 2m or 70cm antenna systems. Features mechanical and electrical stop. The brake construction keeps the antenna positioned, however, allows the antenna to turn in case of heavy winds. The indicator is self-calibrating after power on. Required mast clamps for mast installation: GC-038. The model G-650C is similar to model G-450C, however, features a higher brake torque (see table). Suggested for smaller short wave beams or medium sized 2m/70cm antennas. Both models have 450° rotation and integrated mast brackets. Easy on-off cable connection, the control box features a compass meter and 450 degree display. When used in conjunction with a thrust bearing use 50mm mast diameter.

Please note that connectors for the control cable are not included. If you want to assemble your own cable you should order the connectors 25029 as well. The control cable must have 5 wires.

G-1000DXC

Bild G-1000Now it's getting even more interesting..... Newly developed rotators for medium size short wave beams and big 2 m antennas with 450 degree rotation (i.e. 90 degree overlap enabling simple and fast change of direction). The control box has snap action rotation control switches and a 360 degree illuminated indicator with selectable zero-point. Mechanical AND electrical brake system. Snap on-off cable connector for rotator as well as control box enables easy wiring. Required mast clamp when mounted on a supporting mast: type GC-038.
The G-1000 has the same features and data as the G-800, however, has a 1.5 times higher brake torque (see table). Suited for real big short wave beams.

Please note that connectors for the control cable are not included. If you want to assemble your own cable you should order the connectors 25029 as well. The control cable must have 6 wires.
