Oyster® V – the new generation

Yes, we are getting even better
With the Oyster® V, ten Haaft blazes a new trail in mobile antenna technology: less weight, an even more compact design, and enhanced engineering features compared to predecessor systems. The only thing we did not change: our discriminating quality standards! Find out yourself and tune into the Oyster® V!
A giant leap forward
Being only 17 cm high, the Oyster® V generation is extremely compact: Thanks to the curved shape of the feed arm, the antenna body needs very little space when in its rest position. The same low height is also retained by Oyster® V systems fitted with the TWIN LNB and SKEW option.
TWIN LNB for more customised use: The satellite system is available with an optional TWIN LNB. This option provides two satellite connec- tions, feeding separate programmes to a second receiver or a second TV set with integrated receiver.

SKEW for more range: For optimal reception at the fringe of a sat- ellite’s footprint in south-western and south-eastern regions, the LNB (Low Noise Block) may have to be rotated. This is necessary as the earth’s curvature causes the receiver to tilt away from the orientation of the satellite signal, known as the skew angle. To compensate for this skew angle, the LNB must be turned so that the satellite signals fall onto the antenna at exactly the right angle to ensure a maximum reception range. The optional SKEW feature includes a small electric motor that automatically adjusts the LNB.

TWIN-LNB SKEW für maximalen Komfort: Die Kombination aus TWIN-LNB und SKEW bietet den maximalen
 Komfort und vereint die Vorteile beider Systeme.

Don’t search. Find!

The antenna “knows” the positions of the satellites at all times and aims itself at them directly – long and tedious scan cycles are a thing of the past. What’s the secret behind this technical advancement? The interaction between GPS, 3D compass and inclination sensor.

The global positioning system (GPS) unit identifies your vehicle’s loca- tion, the 3D compass identifies its heading (and that of the antenna, accordingly), and the inclination sensor exactly determines the vehi- cle’s inclination. The effect of sloping ground is often underestimated – only a few degrees may be enough to cause significant signal distor- tion. This effect is stronger than that of the vehicle altitude as it moves between valleys and mountains. To eliminate such faults, the sensor adjusts the antenna position if required.

One cable is enough

Another strong argument for this piece of innovative engineering: You can take our “single-cable solution” at its word. In the new Oyster® V system, control commands, power supply and signal transmission to the external unit are all handled by one single cable. Installation is a minimally invasive operation – all you need is a small passage in the vehicle body. The TWIN option requires a second antenna cable (included in scope of supply of TWIN systems).

Proven technology for ultimate quality expectations

In tens of thousands of Oyster® systems, the rotary-head technolo- gy has proved its worth: Only the head rotates while the rest of the antenna body remains stationary. This means less weight to move – and less power consumption and mechanical load, and also less space, accordingly. Thanks to the slightly elevated pivot point, the antenna remains free to move, even when the roof is covered with snow. This engineering feature has been refined even further for the new generation Oyster® V.

Solid as a rock!

The Oyster® external unit weighs only about 11 kg. Despite the weight reduction, it is even more solid than its predecessors. Here, stability makes the difference. Not only in terms of the proverbial “longevity of the Oyster®”, but especially when it comes to uninterrupted reception. Manufacturers trying to cut corners run the risk of producing an unsta- ble antenna system that is susceptible to the wind. Image interferences are then inevitable.

The stability of the Oyster® is the result of cleverly applied engineering skills and state-of-the-art, high-quality materials like the ones used in motor sports. The single-piece dish arm is made of ultra-lightweight magnesium. And yet, it is extremely rugged and torsionally rigid.

The feed arm is made from glass-fibre-reinforced plastic, with carefully calculated internal webs providing ultimate torsional stiffness. In plain words: It won’t flex – ever. In addition, this meticulously crafted com- ponent provides the space needed for wiring, inclination sensor and compass. If fitted with the SKEW option, this part is also integrated in the feed arm for protection against the elements.

| Easy to use from anywhere


All ten Haaft mobile satellite systems can be easily controlled via the dedicated app. This app gives you access to all functions, allowing you to retract or unfold the antenna, or adjust the numerous settings, call up information or read out error codes using your smartphone.

The ten Haaft® app has a significant benefit: it facilitates automatic updates of the system software. If any technical changes are made to the systems, you will be notified automatically on your smartphone that an update is ready for you to install in the control unit of your satellite system via WLAN. So, you can enjoy fault-free and uninterrupted TV entertainment while en route.
