Multi-Axis Dish Motorization and Control

Post by tek2000 » Fri Feb 03, 2017 10:56 pm

All,

Some new products are currently available and coming soon to facilitate multi-axis motorization and control of the dish you purchase from us or one of our affiliates. Our 6th generation (and beyond) antennas have been fabricated to accept the following motor axis control:

1. Clarke Belt (standard and suggested for beginners)
2. Elevation (0 - 60 degrees using 12" or 18" heavy-duty actuator)
3. Declination (0 - 10 degrees using screw jack)
4. Azimuth (0 - 360 degrees HH using slewing drive)
5. Feedhorn Rotation (rotates entire feed for aligning multi-axis feeds for)
6. LNBF rotation (for rotating prime-focus LNBF)

Some pictures below of prototypes and more comments later. At the moment, we suggest people purchase a bare-bones mesh dish (8ft, 10ft, 12ft, 13.5ft) and become familiar with TVRO. After that, you can purchase the motors and metal adaptors you need for motorizing whichever axis you prefer.
