Hiltron Announces Broadcast Asia Preview

Hiltron GmbH, a leading distributor, integrator and manufacturer in the dominion of satellite communications and related fields, will promote its full range of products and services at Broadcast Asia 2011, Suntec Singapore, June 21-24.
Exhibiting on Stand 4R2-06, the company will be represented by Managing Director Michael Schiesti,
Hiltron is a leading distributor, integrator and manufacturer in the domain of satellite communication and related fields.
Making its debut at Broadcast Asia is the Hiltron HDCU-E satellite antenna heating controller. The Hiltron HDCU-E is a combined ice-sensing and dish heating controller for use with large satellite antennas. It is capable of handling up to 450 kilowatts of power across multiple heating groups. Each group is divided into three independently-controlled heater arrays. Each array in turn feeds up to three antenna heater circuits. A four-group configuration, for example, allows control of 12 arrays addressing a total of 36 heating circuits.
This modular control approach permits easy configuration of parameters such as antenna size, number of heater pads and the power requirement of each pad. Snow detection is via a reflective sensor with a polarising filter. Maintenance, monitoring and control of the HDCU-E are via a standard Web browser allowing easy local or remote supervision. Each heater circuit is individually supervised and controlled via user-adjustable minimum and maximum thresholds. Sequential switch-on is performed within the controller to prevent rapid changes in current load when the antenna hearing process is activated or deactivated. Sequence timing is user-configurable.
Hiltron's HMAM motorised satellite antenna mount will also be on display at Broadcast Asia. Hiltron's HMAM motorised satellite antenna mount is a complete high-precision rotatable satellite antenna mount (up to 3.7 metres) at a very affordable price for use in commercial satellite operations.
Designed for two-way VSAT communication or receive-only downlink applications, it includes professional-grade drives for azimuth and elevation plus a high-accuracy polarisation drive. The HMAM is a fully compatible with Hiltron's standard HACU antenna positioning system.
