KNS, Inc.—Two Variants Debut (SATCOM—Antenna)

[SatNews] KNS, Inc. has launched their C-band 2.2m satellite antenna in two variations:  Z Series for users who want fast Internet access at sea and S Series to provide the ultimate in TV entertainment while offshore.

The C-band has been built for regional or global C-Band beams and is ideal for vessels with limited space for 2.4 or 3m antennas. Like all newly designed SuperTrack Series antennas, there is remote access via a customized web-based software to allow users to use a PC, tablet, or Smartphone to access the antenna anywhere in the world, provided they have Internet access.  This feature can review the current status, provide a full diagnostic, change a satellite parameter, or even update a configuration above deck.

The C-Band 2.2m antenna is pre-assembled, making it easy for installation in just one day.  The antenna has a simple mechanical structure for easier maintenance, an all-in-one Power Control Unit (PCU), Auto Beam Switching (ABS), built-in air conditioner, a carbon fiber reflector, automatic linear and circular polarization.

Noah Chung, Director of KNS, said, “The new C-band antennas have wireless Bluetooth connectivity up to 100 meters from the radome, making it easier to upgrade remotely and monitor capabilities or self-diagnose using a paired computer to check all the settings and movements of the antenna. The C-band 2.2m antenna will be deployed using Milano Teleport S.p.A, the largest independent teleport in Italy—the teleport's business includes DTH and DTT TV Broadcasting, Broadband Wireless and Maritime services worldwide.”
