1216H rotator control usb
« on: 2021-09-27, 20:39:43 »
Hi all,

I am using a Prosistel PST61D rotator and rotator controller with USB COM port for PC (no RS232 port).
Is there any solution to connect the Prosistel rotator controller USB COM port direct to the microbit Webswitch 1216H?

Or do I have to use an USB to serial adaptor with 1216S adapter? Anyone tried this out already?

Thanks for help

There is no such devices which converts serial to USB only the oposit way , But Prosistel have instructions about how to convert the controller back to serial, it's very easy as the USB is only a add on, the serial support is still there. I know many who has done it. Ask prosistel for the instructions, I don't know if they have published them .

Hi Mike

Thanks for answer.
I alreday had contact with Piero Capitanio from Techn. dept. of Prosistel and he sent me the instruction to convert back the controller to “older” RS232 version.
