Default M/A-Com P7100 Enhanced Vehicular Charger

Looking for where to purchase an Enhanced Vehicular Charger. Also, I had heard that a remote head could be attached. Is this true? Is it the same head as the M7100 remote mount? Where could one be purchased?

Thanks in advance,
Colby

The enhanced charger can indeed have a control head attached - you'll need to set the DIP switches on it so that the radio can know what type of charger it is in. There are (AFAIK) three possibles - charger, charger with inverted display (that doesn't work on the P7100 as it can't invert the display) and charger with control head.

You can get them from New London: it'll cost you about $125

The P7100 and 700P charger sleeves are the same.

Hope that helps,
Enid.

Double Inline Package.

two rows of pins with switches between the pins.

one of the pictures is the schematic, the other is an example of one.

hope this helps

Is there a picture of that anywhere, or more info I can read up on them? We have been looking for those, but were looking under the name convertacom.

Make sure that when if/when you buy one, it is the flavor that you want. One has the remote head/speaker option and the other one is just a charger for your car.

Nothing more, nothing less.

Here's the link on the Harris site: http://www.pspc.harris.com/products/.../ECR-7344D.pdf

It doesn't show the remote head option, but you get the idea.

Hope that helps.

Actually they are all the same - the difference is configured using the DIP switches (which was what I was unsuccessfully trying to say in the earlier post)

There's a 25 way D connector on the back that connects to a control head and speaker, as well as the RF connector for the antenna, and the microphone connector. To connect to a control head you need the 19B802554P20 cable and you need to set switch 4&5 to OFF, switch 6 to ON. If you're using P7100, then you have to set switch 8 to OFF.

Beware - the older chargers will only work with NiCd batteries - the NiMH batteries won't work.

Hope this helps some.
Enid

Does that item include the remote head, or just the charger? They dont have pictures for most of their items.

I contacted them and they said it's only the charger. The mic and speaker add $75 onto the price alone (still not included). I'm not sure how much more the head would cost.

They are NOT all the same. Not all of the EVC's have the DB25 on the rear. Without the connector, you will not be able to have a remote head.
