Hiltron Supplies Satellite Monitoring System For LyngSat
Hiltron has installed a motorized antenna and control system at the Helsingborg headquarters of LyngSat.
Hiltron Communications has completed installation of a motorized antenna and control system at the Helsingborg, Germany headquarters of LyngSat, a global company that provides detailed information about the TV channels available over satellites across the globe.
The new installation comprises a 2.4 meter satellite antenna mounted on a Hiltron HMAM motorized antenna mount and operated via a Hiltron HACU antenna control unit.
Antonio Monteverde, Managing Director at Hiltron Communications, said the HMAM is equipped with a special feed that can be switched into different positions to receive signals in Ku band or in C-band linear and circular polarization.
“The new system is fully integrated into the Lyngsat satellite monitoring infrastructure and will be used by the company to keep its web pages up to date with information about the worldwide TV channels available over satellite."
Developed and produced by Hiltron, the HMAM is a high-precision motorized satellite antenna mount that can be used for a wide range of applications including broadcast and telecommunication downlinks. An optional motorized feed changer allows the head to be moved quickly to a new position for switching between frequency bands. HMAM comes complete with professional-grade drives for azimuth and elevation plus a high-accuracy polarization drive. The combined head and drive form a three-axis motorized mount with up to 240 degrees of azimuth adjustment, 90 degrees of elevation adjustment range and fully adjustable polarization.
Hiltron’s HACU is designed to control three-axis motorized antennas. The antenna control unit and associated motor-control electronics are contained in an IP65-rated weatherproof outdoor housing with a hinged front access port secured by dual key screws. The HACU can be operated from a PC running a graphic user interface compatible with standard web browsers. The control GUI displays all the information required to set and maintain azimuth, elevation and polarization, including current and target positions plus a database of potential accessible satellites.
