Available from 26.04.2024
- Provides band data at a BCD output
- LED's show activity of the interfaces
- Supports RS-232, CI-V, Icom Band-Control
- 4O3A Band to BCD Decoder
- DC connection cable
Technical description CAT2BCD
In addition to the BCD output, the 4O3A B2BCD Decoder has one RS-232 (female) and one CI-V (3.5 mm stereo) output socket each, which can be used to control corresponding devices requiring RS-232 CAT data (e.g. USB interface, amplifier, ...).
On the input side are available
- RS-232 male connector
- CI-V socket (3.5 mm stereo), to connect the CI-V output of your ICOM transceiver
- Icom Band-Control socket- 2.5 mm mono, for connecting the band voltage output (usually "ACC 2") of ICOM transceivers
A USB socket on the front panel is used for connection to a computer, the supply voltage is 12 - 15 V.
Application description CAT2BCD
To control the Antenna Genius or other devices addressed via BCD interface, the B2BCD Band Decoder makes the band data output by the transceiver available at the BCD output.
Various inputs and outputs are available for this purpose, covering a large number of peripheral devices and transceivers.
The congestion LEDs on the front panel inform about power supply, activity of the BCD output and the interfaces. The setup of the B2BCD is done by the free available software CAT2BCD. This one-time operation is very simple, only the transceiver model must be selected, baud rate and parity must be set. The configuration is stored in the eprom of the B2BCD, after that it can be permanently disconnected from the PC.
