Ameritron RCS-12L Automatic Remote Antenna Coax Switch w/ Lightning Protection
Automatically switches and selects 8 pre-programmed antennas using 3 or 4 line BCD or 1 of 8 outputs -- with Lightning Protection!
TThe RCS-12 is an automatic control box used for switching remote antenna relays. Ameritron's new antenna switch is designed to work with most Icom, Yaesu, Kenwood, and other transceivers that have a band data output line.
It will work with any relay box with up to eight positions with voltages from 12 to 30 Volts DC. The RCS-12 relay control has an output of 1 of 8; 3 line BCD or 4 line BCD.
The switch reads information from the transceiver and selects pre-programmed antennas automatically. Programming is as easy as a push of a button.
RCS-12 can remember multiple antennas for one band, but selects the last antenna used for that band.
It has a manual/automatic switch that will allow manual selection of antennas as well. it has eight LEDs to indicate which antenna is selected.
RCS-12 will not allow antennas to switch while transmitting. A user programmable delay is used to give the relays enough time to switch to protect the transceiver from "Hot Switching".
