 HILTRON Antenna Control Unit HACU

 

The Hiltron HACU is a complete high precision motorized satellite antenna control unit for up to three axis motorised antenna systems and can be used in professional civil and military satellite communication systems. It combines affordability with the reliability and precision expected of professional-grade communications equipment.

 

The antenna control unit and associated motor-control electronics are contained in an IP65-rated weatherproof outdoor housing with a hinged front access port secured by dual key screws. An emergency cut-off switch is accessible to the left of this housing. The figure (see above) shows the interior of the antenna control unit. For AZ and EL drives frequency inverters are used to drive three phase induction motors. One phase AC or 24V DC motor can be used to drive the polarization.

 

The antenna control unit is designed for IP-based control from a PC running a graphic user interface compatible with standard web browsers. The control GUI (see Figure below) displays all the information required to set anmaintain azimuth, elevation and polarization, including current position and target position plus a database of potential accessible satellites.

Once a satellite is selected, precise access parameters can be calculated at the press of a single button. Azimuth and elevation can be adjusted at up to three different speeds.
