2.4GHz WiFi 802.11n network interface. Listens to RadioInfo packets sent by N1MM+, DXLabs and other logging software to extract radio operating frequency and select antenna.
Connects directly to Flex 6x00 series radio and follows two slices. WEB server that can display operating frequency, choose available antenna on that band, displays transmitting power and SWR on PC/ MAC or tablet. WEB pages are fully customizable. In SO2R or Multi-2 configuration, WS16 will serve a separate WEB page for each radio.
Provides a fast websocket interface for Node-RED integration. 16 digital outputs, each can provide 12V / 0.5A. Can be wired to DX Engineering Dual Input Remote Antenna Switches DXE-RR2X8B for S02R, DXE-RR8B-HP, DXE-RR8B-SD or Ameritron RCS-10 in SO1R setup. One ONAIR solid state relay 36V/0.5A that can be used to switch Flex 6x00 On/Off or control the station main power relay.
Analog inputs for up to two Tandem Match Power sensors to measure transmitting power and SWR up to 2KW. Opto-isolated input (KEYx) and solid state relay (TXEx) can be wired to prevent antenna hot switching for each radio. After antenna change is requested, WS16 will check the corresponding KEYx if this radio is currently transmitting and wait until it goes to receive. When in receive WS16 can disable transmission with the TXEx relay, then safely switch new antenna selection and re-enabling transmission after a set delay.
