Sea Tel DAC-97 Tracking Antenna Controller
The DAC-97 is housed in a standard 19-inch rack mount enclosure. The front panel contains a row of function keys used to select the desired information to be displayed and an array of numeric data entry keys for changing parameters or commanding the antenna functions. Data is displayed on a bright 40 character Vacuum Fluorescent display making it easy to read in all ambient light conditions. The DAC-97 can be mounted on chassis slides allowing easy access to all internal electronics. All external connections are brought out through three D-Subminiature connectors mounted on the rear panel. Flexible ribbon cable extends these connections to a terminal-mounting strip mounted on the rear of the rack enclosure separating the ship wiring from the Antenna Control Unit.
