Designed to support solid reflectors in the range of .90 to 1.5-meters in winds of 60 MPH. High output torque with ultra-low backlash is accomplished with the use of two-stage reduction gearboxes and brushless DC motors. The gearboxes use built-in angular ball-bearing construction, which improves the ability to support external loads, increases moment rigidity and maximum allowable moment. The result is increased reliability and a reduction in maintenance. The use of cross-roller bearings throughout the gearbox yields low backlash (less than 1 arcmin.).
For added reliability, the pedestal is designed with servo amplifiers that have protection for over-current, voltage, and temperature. O-ring seals on all panels allow for positive air pressurization of the pedestal.
The GSA-39KaXY Ground SATCOM Antenna provides both electronic and mechanical stops and all components are modular, with connected sub-assemblies for ease of maintenance. Strategically placed and sized access hatches ensure that all pedestal components are easily accessible. Safety switches are implemented to protect the operator.
Various mounting options are available for integration of customer provided RFE on the pedestal to allow for turnkey installation applications.
