The innovative antenna technology that facilitates the enormous reception range forms the heart of the Cytrac® DX system. It comprises 1016 interlinked single antennas arranged in a honeycomb pattern. This results in a reception range that is several hundred kilometers larger than that of an equally-sized flat-dish antenna.
The system is mechanically reinforced to resist even strong gusts of wind. Its surfaces are made of highly weather-resistant PC-ASA plastic to shed off hail without taking any damage. A hail cover is therefore obsolete.
Control unit and operator panel
Dimensions (W x H x D): ∼ 15.1 x 4.6 x 11.5 cm
The control unit houses all control electronics of the satellite system and is usually concealed in a cupboard.
Dimensions without mounting frame (W x H x D): 11,8 x 7,1 x 0,8 cm
Dimensions with mounting frame (W x H x D): 12 x 7,3 x 1,9 cm
The easy to use control panel should be located in a more accessible spot. A single button push raises the dish to the last reception point (LEM). If it doesn‘t receive a signal at this point, it begins a fully automatic search.
One cable is enough
When we talk about a "single-cable solution", we actually mean it. There is no second cable for power supply. The only cable that is needed is a special coaxial cable that conducts all currents and signals required for control, power supply and signal transmission to the top unit. As such, vehicle installation requires only minimal intervention.
A single pass-through is enough.
For the TWIN option, a second coaxial cable is used.
Mounting plate 36 x 36 cm
All ten Haaft antennas are installed on anodized aluminum mounting plates. As these mounting plates are bonded to the roof using a special adhesive, additional boltholes in the outer vehicle skin are not necessary. There are four studs on the mounting plate to where the system is fastened with four cap nuts. This makes it easy to remove the system from the roof for potential repair work – or when every inch in your garage or carport counts.
