Subject: Pro-Search Interface
I have a Pro-Search PSE-1 rotator controller system (SN PSE-1-S-2545). It
is working fine. However, I notice from the operator's manual that it can
be interfaced to a PC through a serial port. There is a 20-pin socket on
the back for this purpose (I don't have a 20-pin plug to fit it either).
There is no information in the manual on how to actually do this, or what
software would be or could be required to make it work. Also, this unit is
from the early 80's, which could make things difficult.
This is a nice, compact unit which will turn the rotator to any pre-set
heading at the touch of a button, or you can use manual control, or you can
punch in the heading and it will go there. It also has a built in brake
delay, a TX-2 "unjam the brake" function, and a "scan" feature which will
turn the beam 10 degrees and stop for a period, then go another 10 degrees,
etc. until a quadrant has been scanned, then start back the other direction.
Anyone with any info or hardware for interfacing this with a PC, please let
Thanks Jim W4LC
