AbstractA very powerful and flexible antenna control unit is described. This control unit is built around a Z-80A microprocessor, the STD Bus, and optional math processor. It is designed to work with many existing antenna/pedestals. The unit features modular construction, low profile, intelligent controls, programmability, self-test and self-calibration. The controller is easily customized to specific requirements and user preferences for displays, switch legend and location, and is easily extensible with standard extension panels for additional controls and displays or with custom extension hardware. The controller can be remotely controlled via the IEEE-488 Bus or a variety of serial data link configurations.
