Raven 2.4m inclined orbit motorised dish.
Raven 2.4m dish with inclined orbit polar mount using two actuators.
Heavy duty Raven 2.4m dish with inclined orbit polar mount, Raven matched feedhorn and c120 Inverto single LNB.
The 36 inch
heavy duty actuator can go on either side. The 12 inch
heavy duty actuator is for up and down adjustment. This is
ideal for tracking inclined orbit satellites. Two positioners are needed. These can be a Primesat PR1200 V Box
for control east and
west using a modern HD satellite receiver in automatic mode or in manual mode and up and down using the Primesat EZ2000
positioner. Manual mode would be using the handsets which came with the positioners. All satellite positions can be stored. For
inclined orbit satellites a timing chart is useful (ring
us for further advice).
The inclined orbit motor kit
is available separately.
About the motor unit - This motor unit is produced by our sister company www.primesat.eu
for the Satellite Superstore.
It is designed for the 2.4m Raven dish. The "dish back plate frame" is etch primed, primed, top coated and baked in an
oven to provide a durable finish. The rest of the polar mount including the collar is dipped galvanised. All of the nuts
and bolts are made of stainless steel except the main elevation adjuster which are made of brass. The polar mount includes
a frame which is designed to fit on the back of the Raven 2.4m dish using the 4 bolts which come with the Raven dish.
Technical - Gain 47.6 dBi at 11.95Ghz. 3dB beamwidth - 0.7 degrees. Cross polarisation - 30dB, collar fits a 100mm pole.
Weight of polar mount 29Kg. Weight of actuators 12Kg. Total weight 41Kg. This polar mount motor unit is designed to
clamp onto a 100mm diameter pole. An ideal ground stand is the Primesat GS76125
stand. Note - Raven dishes were
formally "Andrews dishes" and before that "Channel Master". This heavy duty polar mount and actuators can take high wind
loads. Using a Diseqc receiver, an optional V Box is also needed. This converts Diseqc commands to 36-volt positioning and
is fully automatic. it also introduces more power to drive the heavy duty 36 volt motor east and west. A discounted V Box
and a discounted ez2000
positioner is avaiable below. A matched Raven feedhorn is highly recommended and
included with this Raven 2.4m dish kit. Using this feedhorn with a C120 flange LNB provides better matching and more good
signal (a higher signal to noise ratio) than a standard 40mm clamp LNB. It is best not to invest in a high quality Raven
dish and use a compromise 40mm mass market LNB where the integrated feedhorn is designed for ANY
dish but is not
matched? Taking this 2.4m dish as an example, a 40mm LNB may only illuminate 2.3m of dish area or perhaps 2.5m of dish
area (i.e. including noise from round the edges) but with a matched feedhorn, exactly 2.4m of dish area is illuminated.
A high output C120 Inverto LNB included (good for longer cable runs). The one piece reflector is thermoset-molded glass
fiber reinforced polyester for strength and rigidity and surface accuracy. An ultimate dish system for enthusiasts. The
polar mount collar fits an 80mm pole or ground stand. Also see the discounted heavy duty ground stand
Spare parts are available for the Raven dish - fixed AZEL mount
, spare arms
, and the feed support boss
. You can
change the single c120 LNB to a twin, a quad, or a quatro C120 LNB with one of the LNB options
4 core motor control cable
for these motors is available. If you already have a 4.5" pole, a pole adapter
Note - a standard motorised version
of this dish is also available
Shipping to all destinations is by quotation. email or ring.
Option - Primesat ground stand for
the motorised 2.4m Raven dish
(The Raven dish used to be made by "Andrews" and before that "Channel Master".)
Manufactured by the Satellite Superstore. This is our own stand. It is 1.6m high and uses a 100mm (4.0") pole.
There are 24 holes for fixing down to concrete or paving. 8 in each corner. It is etch-primed and pained black.
The final coat of paint is baked in an oven dried. The stand is bolted together to make it easy to ship. A fully
welded stand of this size could not be transported with a courier and would need a (expensive) haulage company,
so this stand bolts together. Multiple bolts are used for maximum rigidity. The stand is heavy but it needs to be.
This stand is designed for the motorised 2.4m Raven dish
Coach bolts and plugs for fixing the ground are available from the installation items
page. This is a special order
item. It is manufactured for the customer when an order is placed. Allow up to 5 working days to
manufacture this stand. The weight of this ground stand is 50Kg. (The 2.4m Raven dish weighs 180Kg) This is a
discounted ground stand availab;le with this dish kit. It can be ordered separately on the The ground stands page
Option (discounted) -
Ground Stand for the 2.4m motorised Raven dish. 4.0-inch diameter pole
Our own "Primesat Vision
" heavy duty range. Manufactured since 1991.
