PTC III News -
Hardware Changes - We have now released a new controller for the PTC III. This unit has several new features and software refinements.
Probably the number one item that customers ask about is the gear backlash that allows play in the turntable bridge. Although in most applications this is not an issue, we do recognize that in the larger scales and longer bridges it can be a problem. To solve this we have added an output on the controller that drives a power off shaft brake. The motor shaft runs through this device and it is controlled by the PTC III, effectively holding the bridge immobile. The mounting instructions with photos has been added to the download page for those interested.We have also added a set of dry contacts for the user to use as he pleases. These contacts are closed when the motor is running so a sound module could be switched on when the turntable is turning.
Software Changes - We have increased the reliability of the non-volatile memory. This would apply to units that have a software version of 7.6 and below for rotary, pushbutton and 8.5 and below for keypad systems. If you have had memory loss problems in the past this has been rectified. These software changes can be applied to the older units so if you have had this problem let us know.
