General discussion forum / Expert 2K-FA and remoterig - still one issue
« Last post by py2xb on 2018-06-08, 20:15:27 »
Hi everyone

I have been able to make the serial port of the 2K-FA work at low speed. Thanks Mitch.
So when a COM port of my notebook is directly connected to Expert's serial port, all works ok. I am able to fully control the amplifier and the display reproduces the amplifier's LCD display.

Then I have connected the Expert serial port to Remoterig COM1 (also tried with COM2). It was wired correctly for the COM por  in use. I have used the settings described here http://www.remoterig.com/wp/?page_id=426 , ie Mode 3, 9600, 8 bits, 1 stop bit and no parity.
When the Expert client connects to the amplifier I hear a click in the amplifier as it normally does. I am able to send commands to the amplifier (all of them). The amplifier perfoms de commands (Operate, Power, Set, etc). However  the display on the client remains white (no information) and no button lights up. BTW I also have tried Mode 1 char by char, different baud rates. The above bahaivor does not change either in COM1 or COM2.

So it seems to me that the information in the Expert -> Computer direction is not flowing thru Remoterig. I have ruled out HW problem because I have used the ports for CAT and both COM1 and COM 2 are ok.

Does anyone have a clue about this issue ?

Many thanks Fred PY2XB

Looking at the Hardware configuration it says that they have made things a little bit more complicated Kenwood have changed the layout of the Mic connector during production and there are two different configurations.

New radios with serial number from 70600056 are using Configuration type 1 and older radios with serial number below are using configuration type 2.

I was using before.

Serial number: 50800717

Serial number: B5400074

Not sure how to configure jumpers for replacement kenwood 480 sat

Can anyone help me have changed my kenwood 480 Sat to new one with Serial number: B5400074 have configuration to type 2:

Hi Mitch

Per your answer it seems that in old client version the speed can be changed. However, I have understood from Manual that the firmware of the 2k-Fa fixes the serial speed to 115Kbps, regardless if the client has the ability to change speed.

Anyway, yes, I would appreciate if you could send me the old client version. Regards and thanks again  Fred

Hi Fred,

This has been covered on the Forum before if you search it.

You need a different version of the client that has been available for years, but may still not be on the SPE site. I can send it to you if you need it via email.

General discussion forum / Expert 2K-FA remote control via its serial Port
« Last post by py2xb on 2018-06-06, 18:08:35 »
Hi Guys
I want to remote control the 2K-FA amplifier using  its serial port. I am using Remoterig COM1 for this matter ( it could it  COM2 too)

However the amplifier's serial port has a FIXED speed of 115Kbps (cant be changed, per manual). Remoterig does not allow to set this speed (max is 64K).

Is any of you using Remoterig ports to control the 2K-FA?

Thanks input

Fred

Yes it's internally connected to PTT/CW. As I wrote before it's only com1 which have control signals which is passed from connector to connector.
