ts-480 wiring drawing
« on: 2019-04-05, 17:37:18 »
hi,

have the radio working fine in remote and would like to get to the next step, adding HRD functionality.

I have seen in some messages people referring to drawings about the connection of the TS-480 but did not find them.

Any hint?

Thanks

You need to only use CAT. Here is a checklist for the TS-480:

CAT CHECKLIST
---------------------
IMPORTANT: In both scenarios, you MUST first install a standard serial cable between the TS-480 body and COM2 of the radio RRC!

USING A STANDARD SERIAL CABLE
============================
1) Change the CAT rate on the TS-480 to 4800 baud (menu 56). This rate keeps traffic over the internet to a minimum and faster is not necessary for CAT.

2) Change the COM2 serial settings of the radio-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1 and submit/apply changes.

3) Change the COM2 serial settings of the control-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1 and submit/apply changes.

4) Plug a serial cable in between your PC and the control-RRC COM2

5) Set your software to use the correct COM port on your PC at 4800-8-1-N

USING A USB CABLE
=================
1) Change the CAT rate on the TS-480 to 4800 baud (menu 56). This rate keeps traffic over the internet to a minimum and faster is not necessary for CAT.

2) Change the COM2 serial settings of the radio-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1 and submit/apply changes.

3) Install the Microbit Setup Manager if you already haven't. You don't need the problem for this, but this installs the correct drivers on your PC.

4) Change the COM2 serial settings of the control-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1, "use USB Com Port as COM2" to "Yes" and submit/apply changes.

5) Plug a USB cable between your PC and control-RRC. Make sure you do NOT do his before step 3 above!

6) Find out the correct port in your Windows Device Manager to use by looking for the "Microbit RRC Virtual COM Port (COM2)"

7) Set your software to use the this COM port on your PC at 4800-8-1-N.

thanks for your answer Mitch,


1.
what do you mean by "standard" serial cable?

will this work? https://www.steg-electronics.ch/de/article/Roline-RS232-9-9pol.-Link-Kabel-grau-1.8m-18726512.aspx





or this one?  https://www.steg-electronics.ch/de/article/Assmann-Serielles-Anschlusskabel-D-Sub-9-F-F-2.0m-20027189.aspx



2.
will I be able to use the digital modes of the HRD package? How does it get the audio signals?

Same for other software for other digi modes.

I see pictures -SM2OTU on qrz.com- of people using signal link interface. Do we need that in order no transfer AF signals?

That answer has been posted on the forum several times.

Basically, just connect the sound card's output directly to the control RRC's MIC/AUX connector.
Easiest to use an old ethernet cable and cut-off one end. The sound card's input should be taken
directly off of the control RRC's SPK connector. Use CAT for PTT.

thanks again Mitch,

one step after the other I am getting there... Now I have added the manual keyer and it works fine.

Question:

you say "standard" serial cable.

Is it a x1 straight cable,which brings each wire to the same place of the other side or the one which inverts some pairs, also called "null modem"?

Yes, straight and not null modem.
