Connecting Radio RRC I/O
« on: 2014-01-29, 22:36:57 »
Hi

can someone please confirm the attached schematic is correct. This circuit will be used to drive a bigger relay to on/off my KPA500

thanks

Thanks Mike.

I have build the device as in the picture but when connected to the RRC I get a continues tone at the TS-480 head.

Any idea?

Thanks.

Hi Ziv,

Have you configured your radio RRC IO settings as "on/off" outputs?

Hi,

I use the Radio (TS480) RRC IO as main switching device in my remote shack, works great.

A continuous tone makes me think a keyer/sidetone is activated somehow (?)

Hi Paul

I am still struggling with the OUT0 configuration.. I understand this is on open collector output, which other pin is closing the loop? Pin 7 (8V) or pin 8 (GND)?

your picture in the first message is OK the relay coil is connected between 7 (8V) and the OC output. Maybe your serial resistor is to big if it doesn't work.

Hi Mike

the issue is not that it doesn't work... when i am connecting the relay I get a continues tone at the TS-480 head.
My settings at radio RRC are:-
OUT0 mode on/off   
OUT1 mode on/off   
OUT2 mode Keyer

Control RRC are:-
IN0 mode   Keyer
OUT0 mode I/O   
OUT1 mode I/O   
OUT2 mode I/O   
USB RTS as PTT   
USB DTR as CW

Hi
You cannot use IN0 to transfer a hardware signal when keyer is activated. You must use the web interface in the Radio-RRC to activate the output. When keyer is activated, the IN0 act s a straight key input and what you hear is the CW-sidetone

Hi Mike

Thanks for your answer. I guess this explain the tone I am receiving at the 480 head. It looks like I need a different configuration but not sure it is even possible..

My current use is as follows:-

1. Paddle connection to the back of local the RRC (using the rrc keyer) and from the Radio rrc to the radio.
2. CW keyboard operation (DTR via transistor) to pins 4&8 to the local RRC I/O jack
3. MIXW CAt via com 2

The next feature I am seeking for, is to control an on/off relay (via web to the Radio rrc) to power off/on an amplifier 

Any configuration that I need to change to achive the above?

If you set out 0 = ON/OFF in the Radio-RRC it will show up a new button which you can use to activate/deactivate the output from the web browser

Hi Mike

Thanks.. as you can see from above my settings at radio RRC is OUT0 mode on/off.

What is the setting for the Control RRC INO so all will work... I.E CW via KB ands also the relay

Thanks

If you want to use CW keyer you can not use IN0 and Control-RRC to control OUT0 , you have to control OUT0 by browsing the Radio-RRC and press the ON/OFF button related to OUT0
