The CC-8A Deluxe Control Console is a flexible, 8-position controller used to control the DX Engineering RR8
series antenna switches or any product that uses a 12 or 24* Vdc 1-of-8 or BCD control format.
The attractive metal housing is powder-coated and features an ON/OFF switch, ergonomic selector knob and eight front-panel LED s, with adjustable brightness, to indicate switch position.
The rear panel external plug allows the control cable to be easily unplugged during weather events or if the shack needs to be rearranged. We suggest unplugging the CC-8A control leads when severe weather is expected. The use of a lightning protector on the control lines, such as the PolyPhaser PPC-IS-RCT
, available from DX Engineering, is prudent as well. Shielded CAT-5 type cable
can be used for the control cable. (8 conductors plus ground). DXE-CW9S
is a top quality 9-conductor stranded, shielded cable for best results.
For most applications requiring 12 vdc switching, your existing transceiver power supply or the accessory DXE-PSW-12D1A
can be used. Features
