Intellian v60Ka, ready for Telenor

Ready for service on Telenor’s High Throughput Thor-7 network, the v60Ka is built on Intellian’s next generation 60cm antenna pedestal. Offering connectity blazing speeds in a smaller, lightweight form factor, the v60Ka’s pedestal is certified to the highest military standards for extreme shock and vibration. This ensures outstanding performance and reliability for smaller vessels navigating even the most challenging ocean conditions.

v60Ka Highlights

  • The v60Ka is the only sub 1m system approved for use on the Telenor Thor-7 Network
  • Remote Management using Aptus Web Wi-Fi enabled ACU for local control using Aptus Mobile or PC
  • Gyro-Free Satellite Search Capability eliminates need for integration with a shipboard compass
  • Dual VSAT Mediator integrates two VSAT antennas to combat onboard blockage zones
  • 3-axis stabilized antenna platform with unlimited azimuth
  • 3-Year Global Warranty backed by Intellian’s Global Support Network
  • Built in spectrum analyzer for better faster fault finding and remote support
  • ACU includes two line display and keypad for quick access to critical control parameters

Simplicity Defined

All boxes, connectors, cables, and other components onboard the v60Ka pedestal are clearly marked with silkscreened labels to ensure that labeling does not fade with time. Thumb screws are used throughout the system, eliminating the need for tools.

Upon setup, Intellian’s Aptus software provides a clear, graphically intuitive method for entering onboard blockage zones and calibrating azimuth with a single tap.

The v60Ka removes needless complexity from satellite communications. One antenna, one single unit rack mount controller, one modem. That is all.

Smallest Belowdeck Footprint

The v60Ka’s antenna controller is housed in a 19” 1U rack type case, reducing consumed rackspace by 50%. In addition to being so small, the ACU includes a build in power supply and offers a number of convenient options, such as a two line digital display, with easy navigation buttons and function keys for 100% functionality of the entire system directly from the ACU front panel.

A signature Intellian ACU feature is the front panel management port. One Ethernet and two USB ports are usefully positioned on the front panel for quick connection to a PC, or for instant firmware updates via a USB drive.

Finally, all Intellian ACUs feature Wi-Fi connectivity for wireless management and control of the antenna system via PC or Mobile.
