TARGETuner Controller Unit
The control unit is an intelligent, microprocessor based, data and Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) Motor Controller that monitors the transmitter frequency and antenna performance, while managing the antenna motor speed and tuning accordingly.
Auto-detect complete antenna position sensor range to generate the antenna tuning range.
Sample, Store and Recall antenna tuning location data based on Transmitter Frequency and best SWR.
Continuous monitoring of the Forward and Reverse Power Ratio (SWR) of the antenna system and continually adjust the tuning to provide the best antenna efficiency at the transmitter frequency.
A PWM speed control for the antenna motor with Motor Current and Antenna Position Feedback.
Motor control direction relative to transmitter frequency and SWR tuning to automatically seek a minimum SWR reading.
Manual controls also offer the user the ability to adjust the antenna tuning manually, and store new data points for new and favorite frequencies.
The RF Sensing Module
This unit is to be mounted remotely from the Controller Unit for taking samples of Feedline Measurements at the transmitter or at a Remote RF Deck.
Frequency Monitoring and a Prescaler that monitors the frequency of transmitter.
Forward and Reverse RF power detection to monitor antenna performance (SWR data).
Grounding provisions and standard UHF connectors provided.
