“The new C-Band antennas have wireless Bluetooth connectivity up to 100 metres from the radome, making it easier to upgrade remotely and monitor capabilities or self-diagnose using a paired computer to check all the settings and movements of the antenna,” said Noah Chung, director of KNS.
“We are also excited to announce that our C-Band 2.2m antenna will be deployed using Milano Teleport S.p.A, the largest independent teleport in Italy.”
As with other newly designed SuperTrack Series antennas, a web-based software system is available that enables remote access. This feature can be used to review the current status, provide diagnostics, change satellite parameters, or update the configuration of the above deck unit.
The C-Band 2.2m antenna is pre-assembled and KNS says it can be installed in just one day. It has an all-in-one Power Control Unit (PCU) and Auto Beam Switching (ABS).
