    Do you know the max wattage of the unit?

    Thanks!

    Oh I must ask Focustronic or measure myself. It is not much in standbymode , but when measdue ans steppers are going I would guess around 10-15 watt based on what I know the steppers take. But I will be back when checked this more careful.

    Is it possible to make a BNC connector available to order that has been tested to work from alkatronic to apex controller

    we will do some calculations on the max wattage during a measurement which will use the most power. will update this in due course.

    max wattage is 12W but that is only when doing a measurement. During standby, it will be much less.

    Getting excited for the arrival of my new Alkatronic!!! This last 3-4 weeks is killing me!
    I ordered a few things in preparation for hooking it up to APEX!

    Ordered this BNC Male to Male cable:

    And this to turn the direction of the cable and make the footprint a little smaller!

    Found both online if anyone was wondering would be happy to share links.

    Can't wait to start discussing the usage/benefits of this new technology with everyone.

    Link me brooo, love the right angle piece, would love not to be reminded of this planning oversight again.....have to jam bnc connectors in there normally. I am super pumped as well, especially because I recently had a baby and the tank went through a minor alk swing while I slacked on testing!

    Here is the link to the right angle connector. I'm sure there are higher quality ones out there, but I didn't want to spend too much on this before I was sure it would work.

    And here is the cable I ordered.

    Glad to see others ready to get this thing going!!:D

    That Right angle would work great on your application!! I'm sure it sucks squeezing the cable in there.

    Is there a actual ship date or is it still "end of the month"? Thanks

    Do you know if it matters which bnc cable I use, rg58 vs rg59? I don't know the difference/which is better for the application. Would this one work?[​IMG]

    We are happy to tell, that we keep the schedule so far, and will update probably at the end of this week with more specific date. Thanks for all patience:)

    As it is an analogue signal there could always be slight difference in signal, but as long as you have same cable all time it will have no significance at all which of these you choose. The second reason that it should not be important exact which you choose, is that you calibrate your apex/profilux/other, against your Alkatronic with your existing cable, so the difference will be taken in count.

    Update of user manual:
    Please replace previous version (1.0) with this version: 1.2.
    We will soon also have the file at www.focustronic.net

    The manual is still during development, and there will be more updates, but this version will cover almost everything and no major changes to coming updates.

    Apologies for the delay. Both RG58/59 would work but try to keep it within 1.5-2M long.
