What is the clamping voltage on that specific Polyphaser unit?

What is/are the operating voltages on the G-2800 rotor?

If the operating voltages are higher than the clamping point
on the Polyphaser unit, that MIGHT be part of the problem?

Hope this helps!

I installed a Polyphaser rotator control line protector on my Yaesu G-2800
rotator and found that the rotor would not work. The rotor controller spun
erratically when I changed heading and the rotor itself would not spin.

I disconnected the line protector and the problem went away. The protector
is the shunt type 8-wire unit shown here:

The Yaesu rotor uses 6 wires which I connected as per the instructions
leaving 2 terminals free. The protector was grounded and mounted to a
copper plate inside an entrance panel.

The rotator seems to be working fine, but I wonder if I caused any damage?

Any ideas?
