Install instructions for ERC Version 4 rotator controler

I know it's a long shot. But I picked one up second hand and the DVD was lost. I called Vibroplex and they said they didn't have any copies and I would need to buy another to get the instructions. If anyone happens to have a copy they could rip a ISO of it would be great. I would like to test with this one before I go buy 4 more.

If I have to buy another. I will.

Thanks!

Did you check the web: https://www.schmidt-alba.de/eshop/shop_content.php?coID=14&language=en

That's the origin, and a German Ham and nice guy.
Vibro is only the US distributor

Unfortunately it does not. I have that. but the DVD has where to tap the actual controller and as far as I can tell that is not available online. I was able to download the firmware and control software from there. That is a step in the right direction though!

Actually the instructions are available on his web site, this the USB version:

The other versions are available as well.

just select your model, click on "details" and the download for the docs is at the bottom of the page.

Craig,

Thanks the kit I have was assembled. I am looking for the documentation on integrating it with the controller itself. The PDF is for assembling the kit.  The instruction on hooking it into the controller are on the DVD as I understand it.

Chris,
I have the CD with the installations instructions, actually for an earlier model, but the installation should be the same. Can I email it to you?

Depending on what rotator you are trying to control you need the instructions for the rotor card. For example with my Yaesu G450 the rotor card interfaces between the ERC and rotator. rotor card instructions are here https://www.schmidt-alba.de/eshop/media/products/0511101001526531307.pdf

Glad its what you wanted and glad I was able to help. Currently using it with a G-450A works great.
