It has a built-in 6-pin DIN jack already wired.
For this rotor, I purchased the ERC-Mini DX (Easy Rotor Control) from http://easy-rotor-control.com/ (There is also a ERC-Mini SDX for the 800SDX rotator, and other models for different rotators, too.)
The ERC-Mini DX was pre-assembled in a metal box, and has a USB port on one end of the box and a 6-pin DIN on the other, cable included. Just "plug-and-chug!"
It has its own driver and controller software, but after configuring it with the ERC utility, I usually just let PstRotor control it. another excellent program!
Total cost of the ERC-Mini last year was 99EUR, about $106 (US) after the exchange rate from Deutschmarks. PstRotor was about $36.
Now I can control it from many different logging programs, and even remotely with PstRotor's TCP Server or web server. It makes remote operation a cinch!
I wouldn't be without them.

I have a Yaesu G2800DXA rotor and a Yaesu GS-232B rotor interface
it works perfectly via DDUTIL and all versions of SmartSDR and all software I have every tried
That said, I would definitely NOT recommend the Yaesu GS-232B interface mainly because
@ $569 it is ridiculously overpriced for just being a digital interface to the analog controller.
If I had to do it again I probably would buy the Green Heron and get rid of the analog controller entirely.
But oh so many features. Ramp up/down, PWM and lots of protection. After ripping cables off the tower and nearly ruining a $2500 rotor with the stock controller I learned my lesson!
Have a look at this: https://blog.radioartisan.com/yaesu-rotator-computer-serial-interface/
you can easily build a controller yourself. It is great fun and you can save a lot of money too !
I cost me about 50 dollar.
It works beautifully together with my yaesu G 1000 dxc rotor and my log-program: HamRadio DeLuxe
