GD Satcom RC3000 Antenna Tracking Controller for mobile antennas

Brand: GD Satcom
Part number: RC3000


The GD Satcom Antenna Tracking Controller RC3000 allows easy antenna operation via its menu based user interface. The following example highlights the basic modes of operation provided by the RC3000.


POWER UP
Upon arriving on site and powering up, the RC3000 enters MANUAL mode. In MANUAL mode the user may jog the antenna in azimuth, elevation and polarization. Upon power up, the fluxgate compass and GPS receiver initialize and begin providing data.


AUTOMATIC LOCATION OF SATELLITE
In LOCATE mode, azimuth and elevation pointing angles are automatically calculated based on position (lat/lon), heading and the selected satellite. Position may be obtained automatically from the optional GPS, selected from a preset list of user defined positions or entered manually. Heading may be automatically obtained from the optional fluxgate compass or entered manually. The user selects which satellite to locate from either a preset user defined list or by manually entering satellite data. The RC3000 checks that the pointing solution is within the mount’s range of movement and automatically positions the antenna.


STORING SATELLITE LOCATION

After verifying the antenna is precisely on the satellite, the user may STORE the satellite’s azimuth and elevation angles along with horizontal and vertical polarization data. If the satellite has been identified as having an inclined orbit, theTRACK mode will be automatically entered as described below.


RECALLING STORED SATELLITES

The user may quickly and precisely move between previously stored satellites via RECALL mode.


AUTOMATIC ANTENNA STOWING

From STOW mode, the user may ask for the antenna to be automatically moved to the stow position.
