We airmail/aircourier to New Zealand, NOT air/seafreight!
We advertise, quote and accept Australian dollars only!

Please do NOT force rotator cables and/or coaxial cables through holes
in walls...especially brick walls! We have noticed increasing instances
of rotator and coaxial cables and their connectors being damaged due
to excessive pushing and twisting causing internal short/open circuits!

Includes upper (top) mast clamp.

Specifications;

  • Maximum wind surface area rating; 2.2 square metres
  • K-factor; 230. K-factor relates to inertia. Two slightly different formulas allow two calculations of inertia values of an antenna based on weight, wind surface area, boom & element lengths. Choose the highest K-factor!

Yaesu G-5500DC

$1499 AUD

IN STOCK!

The G-5500 Azimuth-Elevation combination rotator is ideal for space communication antennas.
The azimuth rotator features a turning range of 450 degrees and the elevation rotator has a rotation range of 180 degrees. Subject to availability from Yaesu.

Note; DC = DC motor. This makes it far easier to control via a computer than the original long-term G-5500 which had an AC motor. Otherwise, it's essentially the same rotator as the discontinued G-5500 model.

Specifications;

  • Maximum wind surface area rating; 1.0 square metre
  • K-factor; 60
  • Stationary braking torque re azimuth (AZ); 4,000 kg/cm
  • Stationary braking torque re elevation (EL); 4,000 kg/cm
  • Rotational torque re azimuth (AZ); 600 kg/cm
  • Rotational torque re elevation (EL); 1,400kg/cm
  • Max. vertical load; 30 kg.
  • Backlash; 1.0° re both axes
  • Mast size; 38~62mm AZ/EL
  • AZ 360° rotation time; 70 sec
  • EL 360° rotation time; 80 sec
  • Opt. control by Yaesu radio
  • Optional PC control
  • Rotator diameter and height; 186mm x 300mm
  • Rotators weigh total; 7.8 kg.
  • Req. 2 x 6-conductor cables

Yaesu rotators include one pair of upper (top) mast clamps
(except for G-5500 az./el. and G-550 elevation rotators).

When Lee visited Kenpro in Japan (prior to Yaesu purchasing Kenpro) about 45 years ago, Kenpro demonstrated the new G-5500 azimuth and elevation combination of rotators to him. After the demonstration, Kenpro immediately adopted Lee's suggestion to fit a
U-shaped plate between the two rotators in order to create a more balanced and stronger mounting arrangement. The G-5500 is supplied with an even stronger, and also galvanised, U-shaped plate fitted between the two rotators, these days!

NOTES

Insurance cover for goods in transit is available from us for only $2 per $100 value of goods. Please advise us if you require this option when ordering.

Please consider insurance because we are not responsible for loss of parcels or damage sustained by parcels - the carrier is responsible! We do pack well!

Please do NOT write <fragile> on anything you send to us as doing so greatly increases the risk of damage. Please try to "double-box" all products sent to us.

We don't offer any replacement warranties. One year warranty applies to all rotators we sell new.
Customer-caused damage is not covered by warranty, of course.

Please don't mount your rotator upside-down. If you do, it will fill up with rainwater. The above photos show the correct orientation. Please visually check and resistance check each plug termination at each of the control cable.

Please note that the metallic "clunking" sound inside Yaesu rotators is simply the rotator's electromagnetic braking assembly sliding inside the motor when/if the rotator is shaken back and forth. This is a normal condition!

light-duty rotators. Keep in mind that most of these
rotators are about 1/3 to 1/4 as strong as medium
duty rotators such as G-450A, KR-400, 105TSX...
