Hiltron To Introduce Motorised Satellite Antenna Mount At IBC 2009

A leading system-integrator, manufacturer and distributor in the field of broadcast-quality and microwave communication, Hiltron Communications' new HMAM motorised satellite antenna mount, scheduled for introduction at IBC 2009, is designed for two-way VSAT communication or receive-only downlink applications.
The combined head and drive form a three-axis motorised system with 180 degrees of azimuth adjustment, 90 degrees of elevation adjustment range and fully adjustable polarisation.
Michael Schiesti, Hiltron GmbH Managing Director, said: "Some satcom service-providers have tried using consumer mount devices for VSAT and for downlinks only to find that the solutions they have chosen are unreliable. The HMAM is a complete high-precision rotatable satellite antenna mount at a very affordable price for use in commercial satellite operations. It includes professional-grade drives for azimuth and elevation plus a high-accuracy polarisation drive and is fully compatible with our standard HACU antenna positioning system."
The HMAM comes complete with a flexible support plate allowing the attachment of all kinds of reflectors with a diameter between 1.2M to 3.4M. The rotating pedestal mount is made of hot-dip galvanised steel. Azimuth movement is accomplished via an axle bearing with a drive motor allows the entire satellite arc to be covered from any position on the planet. Elevation movement is accomplished via a jackscrew with a further drive motor. This design and the use of resolver-angle indicators ensure highly reliable and very accurate positioning far beyond the stability of commercial-grade actuator solutions. The very high rigidity of the construction ensures essentially zero backlash.
Options for the Hiltron HMAM motorised antenna mount include a satellite tracking system, inclined orbit tracking, integration of parabolic reflectors according to customer preference, de-ice systems, and a choice of standard steel mounts or non-penetrating mounts.
Hiltron Communications will be exhibiting on Stand B89 in Hall 4 at IBC.
