Cirrus Antenna Controller

For Vehicle Mount Antennas

The Sat-Lite Technologies Cirrus Antenna Controller is designed to automatically locate and peak on a target satellite with the simple push of a button in about 3 to 5 minutes. A user friendly interface is provided with a keypad and LCD Display as well as an enhanced ethernet GUI. The Cirrus Controller can operate independently of modems by locking on to a number of DVBS-2 carriers to positively identify a satellite, peak on it to obtain optimal azimuth heading, then move to a final target satellite. The DVB carriers can be easily programmed from the GUI and set optimally by the user for fast and efficient acquisitions. The unit includes a GPS and Compass and can provide GPS data to an external modem. The controller is designed to operate with a full array of Sat-Lite Technologies Vehicle Mount Antennas from 1.0 meter to 1.8 meter applications.

  • High Reliability 2 RU Rack Mount Controller with Display Panel and Keypad User Interface
  • Enhanced Ethernet GUI for Local or Remote Control
  • DVBS-2 Receiver for Positive Satellite ID
  • Includes GPS and Compass for Fast Acquisition – Typically 3 to 5 Minutes
  • Remote Login Capability for User Support
  • Optional Modem Interfaces, Open AMIP
  • Auto Stow / Deploy Features

RC4000 Antenna Controller: Outdoor Mounted

for Sat‐Lite Technologies Motorized Flyaway Antennas

The Sat-Lite Technologies RC4000 Antenna Controller is a fully weatherized unit that is pre-integrated with the Antenna System. The unit can be supplied with GPS, Compass, and DVB receiver to provide accurate position and antenna heading information. Optional Beacon Receiver, Spectrum Analyzer, and multiple user interfaces are available. The control unit deploys the antenna to an accurate elevation and polarization angle and then sweeps in azimuth to locate a signpost satellite (with known DVB signal). The onboard DVB receiver locks on the satellite and positively identifies it. Accurate look angles can then be used to peak on the final target / desired satellite longitude.

  • High Performance Outdoor Mounted Antenna Controller for Flyaways or Vehicle Mounts
  • GUI Ethernet Web Browser Interface with optional handheld remote
  • User Programmable DVB-S/S2 Receiver for Positive Satellite ID
  • Fully Enclosed and Weatherized Enclosure Mounted on Antenna
  • GPS / Compass Options for Auto Acquisition
  • Inclined Orbit Tracking Options – Steptrack / Memory Track and High Performance Beacon Receiver
  • L Band Spectrum Analyzer Option
