Cable Drive Positioner
AvL's patented AvL Cable Drive rotary drive technology provides the ultimate in precision and stiffness over geared or other
The AvL Cable Drive rotary drive system suffers no backlash and is a simple maintainence free dry mechanism able to operate in a
very wide range of difficult and hazardous conditions without degradation.
The AvL Cable Drive rotary drive technology is an elegant, simple, system that utilizes the averaging effect of many cables
wrapped around a drive capstan and an output shaft.
The most important of specifications for a satellite antenna, particularly an auto-acquisition antenna, is the pointing accuracy
and the stability and stiffness of the positioner under the most extreme environmental conditions. The positioning accuracy is
determined by how precisely the positioner can move to a defined point as well as how stable and stiff the positioner is in
maintaining that position. The speed of movement is based on how quickly the positioner can move to a defined position.
AvL's patented AvL Cable Drive technology provides the ultimate in precision and stiffness compared to geared drive
systems and, unlike most other systems, is free of backlash. It is a maintenance-free dry mechanism able to operate in a very wide
range of difficult and hazardous conditions without degradation.
RC3000EMB Embedded Satellite Locator/Inclined Orbit Tracking Controller for Mobile Antennas
AvL antenna systems combine the patented Roto-Lok® cable drive positioning system with totally automatic satellite acquisition
to provide ease of operation (without a satellite technician) and ultimate reliability under even the most demanding environmental
conditions. Our auto-acquisition controllers contain embedded software (no software to install!) to automatically find the satellite
in minutes providing rapid deployment and operation on any satellite worldwide.
Compatible with every satellite modem without modem interface required, the controllers have integrated GPS to determine exact site
location, compass, base level sensors, and a receiver that allows satellite acquisition and optimum peaking and cross pol nulling
without any connection to the RF system resulting in automatic optimization of azimuth and elevation and polarization alignment.
Safety features include shut off of receive link if movement is detected and a stow command if the vehicle moves or tilt sensors are
