Hiltron Completes Teleport For Al Arab News

News Image
Hiltron has completed a new teleport for the Al Arab News television station at the World Trade Centre in Bahrain's capital city, Manama.

Launching this year, Al Arab News is a privately-owned Saudi channel and news-provider. The new system consists of seven fixed 2.4 metre Ku band receive-antennas, a 3.7 metre C band fixed downlink and a motorised 3.7 metre receive-antenna with a four-port C/Ku band feed.

Also incorporated are a Hiltron HMAM motorised antenna mount and Hiltron ACU antenna control unit, covering the whole receivable arc. All these receive-antennas are used for programme contribution and feeds.

Two uplink installations are being used for programme backhauling in the 13 to 14.5 gigahertz extended Ku band range. Each is equipped with 3.7 metre motorised ASC Signal antennas with Hiltron ACUs and a tracking system.

The system is protected by full 1:1 redundancy and includes Newtec M6100 modulators, work upconverters and CPI 750W high power amplifiers providing a maximum EIRP of 72 dBW.

Hiltron's HMAM is a motorised, rotatable VSAT antenna mount for use in commercial satellite operations. It incorporates professional-grade drives for azimuth and elevation, as well as a high-accuracy polarisation drive.

The Hiltron HACU is designed to control three-axis motorised 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 polarisation, including current and target positions plus a database of potential accessible satellites.
