(Backnang, Germany--August 6, 2013) Hiltron Communications has chosen the September 2013 International Broadcasting Convention, IBC, for the introduction of world’s first triple-axis motorised 2.4 metre receive-only Ka-band antenna with switchable linear and circular polarisation.
Hiltron's HMAM-Ka three-axis motorised antenna
The new HMAM-Ka was developed in close co-operation between Hiltron and ESA Microwave, based on a newly designed Ka-band polariser. Ka-band includes the 21 gigahertz band which is becoming increasingly important for satellite downlinks.
Hiltron's HMAM-Ka incorporates a complete high-precision rotatable satellite antenna mount designed for use in commercial satellite operations. It includes professional-grade motorised drives for azimuth and elevation plus a high-accuracy polarisation drive.
The HMAM-Ka can accommodate antennas of up to 3.7 metres diameter and is fully compatible with Hiltron's standard HACU antenna positioning system.
Also available from Hiltron is an HMAM-IOT version of the motorised antenna. This enables cost-efficient uplinks to be operated via inclined-orbit satellites.
Hiltron will be exhibiting on stand B89 in hall 4 of IBC 2013. Company representatives attending will include Dr Michael Schiestl (Managing Director), Reinhold Wagner (Sales Director), Helmut Hayer (Development & Production Director), Steffan Liscutin (System Engineer) and Susanne Reichmann (Sales Assistant).
