Here's a program to control this unit remotely with a PC (RS232 or USB):

This is old version of this program, use if purchased before 2013:

Here is the driver for USB port for XP, W2K, Vista and Windows7:

This lets you use the USB communication with transmitter board.

Here is the driver for USB port for XP, Vista and Windows7 that should work in 64 as well:

There are a few new things, most importantly the on-board meter is now temperature stabilized and more accurate (two digits, say 1.00W versus 1.0W before).

There is also a power limit for driving pallets, you can specify a limit at say 500W and the drive power will stop once it gets to 500W. Perfect for building transmitters of various powers as you get perfectly flat power output anywhere in the band.

Post MAXPRO5000, major manual update Reply with quote
I have updated manual over the weekend, added MAXPRO 5050, which is bigger and runs off 24V, and other specifics for various models.

Quite a big update, some new stuff added, some errors removed.
