VertexRSI 7134 Antenna Control System and 7150 Drive Cabinet for fixed antennas (USED)

: VertexRSI (GD Satcom)
Part number: 7134/7150

The VertexRSI (GDSatcom) 7134 Antenna Control System is a microprocessor-based system incorporating digital technology for accurate  antenna positioning with high reliability, maximum flexibility, and a straightforward and practical user interface. This control system is ideally suited for small and medium aperture antenna applications requiring capabilities for automatic multiple satellite access, program track, remote control via an RS-232 or RS-422 communications link, and optionally Adaptive Step Track, Enhanced Memory Track and Intelsat 11-Element (IESS412) operation.

The standard product provides 2-speed axis control for AZ and EL with a high/low speed ratio of up to 15:1. This is  accomplished by application of user-settable highand low-speed control signals to variable speed AC drives, which in turn control standard 3-phase induction motors. For 3-axis systems, circuitry is provided for the control of an AC synchronous
stepping polarization motor. The AZ and EL motor controllers employ integral electronic protection. The drive cabinet (model 7150) includes NEMA-rated circuit protection devices for each motor/motor controller, which are sized appropriately for each application.


7134 ACU Key Features:

• Real-time position readout and fault message reporting
• Multiple control modes
• Step Track control mode
• Memory Track control mode
• Intelsat (IESS412) control mode
• Practical, user friendly edit mode
• Encoding system display resolution of 0.01°
• Battery-backed non-volatile RAM
• Internal self-diagnostics
• Remote control and data entry via RS-232 or RS-422 serial communication ports. 

We can offer with all of our used ESA antennas a full used / refurbished motorization package including the 7134 ACU, an outdoor 7150 Drive Cabinet, new size-11 resolver kits and cabling. We do have access to Vertex beacon/tracking receivers or SSC tracking receiver depending on what is available at that moment. Please ask us for more details!

VertexRSI - GDSatcom History

VertexRSI operated as a separate entity of General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies Division after the acquisition by Defense & Security Company General Dynamics. GD SATCOM Technologies nowadays, is a global leader in satellite and wireless communications for video, voice and data offering a wide range of products and services.

In 1973, J. Rex Vardeman and A. Don Branum founded Radio Mechanical Structures, Inc. (RMS) in Kilgore Texas that was sold in 1977 to Harris Corp. The acquisition would form Harris Satellite Communications as a division of Harris Corp. In 1984, Vardeman, Branum and other key employees purchased Harris Antenna Operations and formed Vertex Communications Corporation. This publicly–held Texas Corporation was a world leader in the design, manufacturing and installation of precision satellite communications earth station antennas.

Vertex has been named by Forbes Magazine as one of the '200 Best Small Companies in America'. Vardeman was responsible for much of its success and has been credited for many of the technological advances in this industry.

Before VertexRSI became part of GDSatcom in 2004, it was owned by Tripoint Global that was composed that time of RSI, Prodelin, Gabriel Electronics & Microwave and CSA Wireless Communications. TriPoint Global Communications has been integrated into the General Dynamics C4 Systems business unit, which is a leading integrator of secure communication and information systems and technology.

In 2015 the Company combined their C4 Systems and the AIS (Advanced Information Systems) divisions to form GD Mission Systems. GDSatcom operates as a separate unit under the GD Mission Systems Division.
