HILTRON HSACU - SNG antenna control unit

Hiltron’slatest product and the future flagship of our controller series is the HSACU DSNG controller for control ofmanufacturer independent motorized DSNG antennas providing fully automatedauto-acquisition. The Hiltron HSACU controlleris unique on the market for several reasons and a must for any new DSNG truckor an ideal replacement of an existing control system.

TheHiltron HSACU uses a modern touchscreen to allow navigating the control unit locally, or, alternatively pushbuttons can be used. All parameters are also easily accessible via a Web-interface.

  • Hiltron’s new HSACU Antenna DSNG control unit supports three axis motorized DSNG antennas up to 2.4m, with separate adaptation to the motors for Az, El and Pol. Control is accomplished by software, without turning any potentiometer or setting any internal jumpers
  • Supports internal DVB-S/S2 tuner for verification of the satellite via carrier recognition
  • Determination of heading through fluxgate compass or/and GPS compass
  • Remote control via Web browser
  • Compact 19”/2RU chassis
  • Local user interface through push buttons and colour touch panel display at the front of the unit
  • Fully automated and fast auto-acquisition of accessible satellites (less than 5 minutes). Even finds satellite without a compass through advanced search method
  • Compensation of truck inclination in two axes
  • Works with resolvers, potentio-meters, inclinometers and DC motors


  • Satellite verification by beacon receiver

Typical Applications

Complete three axis antenna control for SNG vehicles and similar mobile applications.
