Introducing C-Band 2.2m: Small, Rugged and Flexible Regardless of the Weather
KNS, Inc., a market leader in design, manufacture and integration of marine communication systems, has announced the launch of its C-Band 2.2m satellite antenna. This C-Band antenna has 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.
Commenting on the new smaller, 2.2m antenna, Noah Chung, Director of KNS, said "We have taken our C-Band to the next level of marine stabilized antenna and promise to provide our customers with a brighter future, whether it is a reliable fast Internet service or a flexible TVRO antenna. 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".
Chung adds, "We are also excited to announce that our C-Band 2.2m antenna will be deployed using Milano Teleport S.p.A, the largest independent teleport in Italy. Its business includes DTH and DTT TV Broadcasting, Broadband Wireless and Maritime services worldwide".
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. It 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.
The new standard of maritime communication is now here. KNS's own proprietary technology has enabled them to claim worldwide leadership in this competitive industry.
