AvL Technologies Model 1878 Vehicle-Mount Mobile VSAT
AvL's Model 1878 Vehicle-Mount Mobile VSAT antenna features an offset 1.8m reflector and the patent-pending AvL Cable Drive positioner for reliability
and ease of operation. The Model 1878K mobile broadband antenna system is a motorized, palletized antenna with a standard Ku-Band Precision feed and
optional C-Band feed. The Model 1878 provides connectivity in remote environments worldwide where larger aperture antennas are desired to combat rain-fade
and weaker satellite signals.
Created for use where performance really matters, AvL's Vehicle Mounted Mobile Broadband systems enable video, voice, IP and data communication anywhere in
the world, with the push of a single button. The precision of AvL's patent-pending AvL Cable Drive positioners paired with the ease of one-button Auto-Acquisition
and superior technical support make their vehicle mount antennas ideal for non-technical antenna operators.

Quality Components and Superior Designs
From quality design to manufacturing to customer service, AvL Technologies maintains the highest standards in the industry. Quality components and superior designs ensure maximum product life, low cost of ownership, higher data rates, and stability and pointing accuracy in addition to many other benefits.
AvL one button satellite acquisition antenna control systems provide fully automatic, modem independent, acquisition and tracking capabilities for rapid deployment. Satellites are typically acquired in less than five minutes.
Thanks to AvL's exclusive auto-acquisition technology, our products can be reliably operated by non-technical operators without any requirement for external test equipment or laptop.
Backlash Free Roto-Lock® Cable Drive
AvL's patented Roto-Lok® cable drive technology provides the ultimate in precision and stiffness compared to geared drive systems. It is a maintenance-free, dry mechanism, able to operate in a very wide range of difficult and hazardous conditions without degradation.
The cable drives are driven by a low backlash, gear box with DC motors. All drive components are high strength steel, housed in lifetime lubricated housings resulting in the most reliable, no maintenance system with minimum of weight. Learn more about the advantages of Roto-Lok®.
Hand Held Controller
The single button push controller simplifies deployment. The standard supply menu driven display panel is a one button auto-acquisition controller. These controllers can be used for auto operation or for performing custom configurations or operations.
Not Required For Operation
Specialized Training or a Satellite Technician
Laptop, PC, or Test equipment
Single button push stow
Automatic stow when triggered by tilt or vehicle motion
A variety of cable lengths & termination options are available including bayonet or military types.
Extended Warranty & Spare Parts
