This latest model uses a DC motor for extra torque and reliability. It was first released in 2019.Rotate Amateur and professional antennas with the Yaesu's handsome 220/240 Vac desktop remote control console, featuring a compass-style indicator at the station operating position. The G-450CDC rotator system provides 450 degrees of azimuth rotation in just over one minute. The rotator handles masts of 1.25 to 2.48 inch outside diameter and, when tower mounted, a total vertical mast load up to 200 lbs. This rotator comes with a mast clamp to fit your antennas to. The rotator will fit on a standard tower, however if you want to pole mount it. Then you need the GC-038B pole mount that we also list, nothing else. You get all the connectors and you just need some cable as below. In the Yaesu G-450CDC, the clamshell rotator design utilizes 98 heavy 7/16-inch dual-stacked circumferential ball bearings to distribute load over the full diameter of the housing. This design minimizes stress and wear, and practically eliminates the possibility of destructive water entry: there is no shaft hole in the top of the housing. Yaesu's factory-lubricated rotator units are housed in Melamine resin-coated die-cast aluminium intended to provide maintenance-free operation under all climatic conditions. Beginning in 2019 the new Yaesu G-450CDC Rotator motors and controllers operate with a 20 V DC control voltage, four-wire system, using the provided connectors to be installed at each end of the user supplied control cable, same as the previous models. For clarity, the new DC rotator motors are marked "G-45CDC" at the connector. The rear panel of the controller is titled "G-450CDC" on the serial number label.
All control cable assemblies for all modern Yaesu rotator systems use the same connectors with "1 to 1 pin-out" connector wiring. Therefore, older cable assemblies are compatible with the new Yaesu G-450CDC components, which only use pins 2, 3, 4 and 5 in each connector. For control cable runs less than 125 ft.
If the rotator cable needs to be longer than 125 ft. The input voltage for the G-450CDC controller is labelled "220 VAC" to indicate a nominal house supply of 220 to 240 Vac. Note: ours are sourced from Yaesu UK not imported directly, and hence they show 240V on the back of the rotator. Ours also come with GL-33 mast adapters to allow a small diameter mast to used and still keep the mast concentric to the main rotator body.When you need a medium-duty rotator system, which is durable and attractive, order a new Yaesu G-450CDC Medium-Duty Rotator System from Dave Cawley of Timestep.
