News Image
Hiltron Communications is to promote the latest additions to its product range on stand 1.D50 at IBC 2023, Amsterdam, September 14th-17th.

Making its first IBC showing will be the HDCU2 de-icing sensor and heating controller. Developed for use with small to medium sized antennas, it provides IP66 protection against heavy rain or snow. The complete unit occupies a compact 180 x 180 x 90 mm weatherproof housing and is rated for operation in environments of -30 to +50 degrees Celsius at 5% to 95% non-condensing humidity.

The HDCU2 incorporates a PT 100 ambient temperature sensor and can accommodate an optional reflector in addition to a snow precipitation sensor. Up to three 2.9 kW heating circuits in three-phase 400 volt AC configuration can be controlled. The HDCU2 can alternatively be configured for single-phase 230 volt AC operation where the combined output load for all three power feeds does not exceed 2.9 kilowatts.

Load control can be performed individually for each of the three circuits. Each heater circuit can supply one or more antenna heater pads. The permitted current for the three heater circuits is controlled and monitored independently via IP or SNMP. The controller comes complete with an intuitive web-based interface and supports automatic as well as manual operation. Detected currents and temperatures can be monitored remotely. Monitor and control parameters displayed include heater circuit current thresholds, safety switchoff limit, heater activation/deactivation temperature thresholds and related timing.

Conforming fully to the relevant CE safety, EMC, emissions and immunity standards, the complete unit has a standby power consumption of just 4 watts. Connectivity ports along the underside of the housing are provided for a rain and snow sensor, dish temperature sensor, ambient temperature sensor, local area network, mains power input and heater output feeds.
