Raven 2.4m inclined orbit motorised dish.
Raven 2.4m dish, inclined orbit polar mount using two actuators.
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 motor weight 41Kg. Heavy duty Raven fibre glass dish.
The one piece reflector is thermoset-molded glass fiber reinforced polyester for strength and rigidity and surface accuracy.
These Raven Skyware Global dishes were formally "Andrews dishes" and before that "Channel Master".
An ultimate dish for enthusiasts. For moving east and west, a genuine heavy duty SuperJack 36 inch
actuator is included.
The 18 inch
heavy duty HR actuator is for up and down adjustment. This is ideal for tracking inclined orbit satellites.
Two positioners are needed. These can be a Primesat V Box for control of east and west positioning using a modern
satellite receiver in automatic mode and a 2nd V Box in manual mode for up and down elevation acting just as a positioner.
Manual mode would be using the handsets which came with all V Boxes. 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, powder 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.
A matched Raven feedhorn is recommended. This feedhorn with a C120 flange LNB will provide better matching and more
good signal (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.
Spare parts are available for the Raven dish - fixed AZEL mount
, spare arms
, and the 40mm/23mm feed support boss
4 core motor control cable
for these motors is available.
If you already have a 6.5" pole, a pole adapter
V Box options.
Using a Diseqc satellite receiver, a V Box
is also needed, or a V Box can just be used as a
separate positioner as it comes with it's own remote control. The V Box in automatic mode converts Diseqc
commands to 36 volt positioning and only the satellite receivers remote is used. It also introduces more power to
drive heavier duty 36 volt motors. 2 V Boxes are needed. See options below.
below. There are many LNB options. LNB not included unless an option is chosen. There are 40mm
clamp universal LNB options. If a wideband LNB is to be required, choose the hybrid 40mm LNB as it has universal
outputs as well. If wideband LNB outputs are required they must be 40mm and there are no c120 flange wideband
LNBs available. This is also the case with the fibre headend.
Feedhorn c120 LNB options
. When using universal LNBs, the matched feedhorn and c120 flange LNB is best. A
matched feedhorn will maximise signal capture in low signal locations and is available with several c120 flange LNB options
. ground stand
is available separately.
Non-pentrating ground stand
. A heavy duty Primesat non-penetrating ground stand
is available separately.
LNBs can be selected separately by ordering a C band stainless steel feed support clamp
and a C Band LNB
polar mount motorised version and a fixed version
of this 2.4m dish are also available.
