sat-nms ACU antenna controller

sat-nms ACU19V2-front

The sat-nms ACU-ODM is the core module used in all our antenna controllers. ODM is the abbreviation for Out Door Module, as this was the target application, at least in the beginning. Please refer to its specific user manual if you want to understand its capabilities and features.

Key Features

  • Developed, manufactured and tested in Germany
  • Integrated web server, user interface via web browser
  • GUI design for efficient operation and workflow
  • Backup of configuration data via FTP
  • Remote M&C interface via HTTP, RS232 and SNMP

The SatService approach for antenna control and tracking is that the complete tracking system (sat-nms ACU-ODU) is located directly at the antenna without the requirement of other approaches which need a lot of interface cables to additional equipment indoors. The outdoor cabinet contains all necessary components. This is the most favorable configuration we recommend:

  • Two standardized cabinet sizes depending on frequency inverter size
  • Cabinet 1 Maximum 3KW frequency inverter / motor power
  • Cabinet 2 Maximum for 4KW to 7,5KW frequency inverter / motor power
  • Higher motor power solutions also available
  • Flexible with additional options like
    • 110V polarization drive transformer
    • Cooling fan options
    • Power outlet
    • Ethernet switch, with or without optical fibe
    • Sunshield
    • Handheld
