Satellite Systems announces the new control GUI Version 2.0 for our antenna control product line. Enhanced
control features allow for remote control of your antenna and additional monitoring tools are included such as strip
charting for signal strength, Azimuth & Elevation movement. Version 2.0 also includes a new event-triggered
alarm feature that allows for email notification to your laptop / cell phone or PDA. Alarms are triggered via signal
strength, loss of signal, and other conditions. New logging to file feature allows for analysis of controller events.
Easily imported to Excel. Revolving log file saving feature automatically closes the file and starts a new file once
per day for archiving and date stamping purposes.
