ATC200-LITE-USB Portable Controller

The ATC200-LITE-USB controller software automatically determines the actuator version and applies the firmware update for each actuator found on the AISG bus.

To update actuator firmware using the ATC200-LITE-USB controller:

  • Connect the ATC200-LITE-USB controller to an actuator.
  • Start up the latest version ATC-LITE software.
  • Execute a device scan.
  • The actuator version is automatically detected and latest firmware is applied.



ATC200-LITE-USB Supporting Software


The E-ATM300 Field Configuration Tool is required for applications where E-ATM300 actuators will be managed using an ATC200-LITE-USB controller.


ATC300-1000/2000 Rack Mount Controller

  • ATC300-1000 Bundle (includes controller and actuator firmware; plus the latest antenna definition file)
 

Antenna definition files are required for RET controllers to achieve accurate configurations and communication with antennas in a RET system. This file tells the RET system the tilt range for a given antenna and enables the system to set the tilt angle for the antenna. CommScope provides the most up-to-date antenna definition files for our RET compatible antennas to be managed in the RET systems shown below. It is highly important to download and use the latest antenna definition file to ensure quality electrical tilt adjustment results.

PLEASE NOTE: The antenna definition file is included with download bundles for rack mount controllers.

The latest antenna definition file version is _066, as of 10/11/17.
