LUSO exhibits at IBC in HALL 5 , STAND C19

As IBC – Europe’s leading show for broadcast, electronic media and entertainment content – gets underway at the RAI in Amsterdam, Luso is busy preparing to showcase its motorised Ka-band 1.8M receive antenna. Key for reliable satellite uplink use, the platform provides robust reception capacity in all conditions whilst maintaining a compact form factor and allowing for easy installation.

The antennas are available in 4 variants; fully fixed, manually point-able, motorised and full tracking. A full range of ancillary components are available.

Luso will normally be able to deliver the antennas from stock. The company offers a complete installation and commissioning service. Installing the 5-piece motorised system is normally completed in one day, which is approximately one-third of the normal installation time for other motorised antennas. Customers can opt for a fixed installation in the first instance then upgrade easily to a full tracking one at a later date. The modular design also simplifies other changes that may be
needed during the life of the installation.

The mounting pole is heavy duty box section for maximum rigidity with the option of nonpenetrating mounts, cast in-place mounts or a bolt-down tripod.

Controller options allow tracking of inclined orbit satellites as well as a range of other features. Construction is from heavy section steel, hot dip galvanised for lifelong protection with high accuracy slewing drives and auxiliary bearings. The antenna is aluminium with a polyester powder coat finish.
