T2X Tailtwister Series II

for large medium antenna arrays up to 20 square foot wind load

The T2X is the base model for use with 120V power. The Tailtwister is one of the most popular rotators in the Hygain product line. It has been the standard to what competing rotators have tried to match since the TX-2 Tailtwister rotor was introduced.

The T2X Tailtwister Series II Rotator is for large medium antenna arrays up to 20 square foot wind load. Its wind load with mast adapter is 10 square feet. It has 1000 inches-pounds in turning power and 9000 inches-pounds in brake power. The effective movement in the tower is 3400 feet-pounds.

A new automatic 5-second brake delay insures that the rotator is fully stopped before the brake is engaged. No more accidentally engaging the brake while the rotator is in movement. T2X features a new low temperature grease which permits normal operation to -3O° F. New alloy ring gear has tensile strength of 100,000 psi for max reliability.

The indicator potentiometer has been improved for greater reliability. A silver-plated relay contact point makes for smooth traveling and more reliable contact between the pot strip and wiper arm gives years longer life on these important, internal components.

New water-tight AMP detachable twist-and-lock connectors at the rotator base and an 8-pin plug at the control box make it easy to hook up. Rotator has a triple bearing race with 138 ball bearings for large load bearing strength. Electric locking steel wedge brake prevents wind induced antenna movement.

The control box features a North or South center of rotation scale on meter and low voltage control for safe operation.

Clamp plate and stainless steel mounting hardware is included for a up to a 2 1/16 inch mast.
