Intellian v240M

A Single Reflector Delivering 2.4 meter MultiBand Performance in C- and Ku-Band

The v240M is the world’s first antenna to provide auto-switching 2.4m performance in both C- and Ku-band on a single reflector.


  • Auto-switching between C- and Ku-band within seconds.
  • Auto-switching between circular and linear polarization when operating in C-band
  • RF Switch Enabled Modem Mediator
  • Remote Management using Aptus Web. Wi-Fi enabled ACU for local control using Aptus Mobile or PC.
  • Gyro-Free Satellite Search Capability without input from a ships compass.
  • Save installation and maintenance time with automated diagnostics and built in Spectrum Analyzer feature.
  • Supports extremely high and low elevation angles (-20° to +120°)
  • Dual VSAT Mediator integrates two VSAT antennas to combat onboard blockage zones.
  • 3-Year Global Warranty backed by over 300 Intellian Service and Support centers around the world.

Superior Flexibility

Today’s vessels must operate globally and relocate from one ocean to another without delay. Having flexibility to use different frequency bands or to choose between different satellites within a region or when in port is a compelling advantage.

The Intellian v240M delivers these advantages with its patented automatic switching between C- and Ku-band service, ensuring reliable connectivity anywhere on the world’s oceans.

The antenna’s high efficiency, offset fed reflector, and an ultra-wide elevation angle enable superb connectivity virtually anywhere you go, even in extremely high latitudes.

True 2.4m MultiBand Performance

Conventional MultiBand solutions have only partially addressed market needs by mounting a 2.4m C-band reflector and a 1.2m Ku-band reflector inside a single radome. The benefit of only installing one antenna is clear. The limitation, however, is lower performance in Ku-band and much slower switching time between C- and Ku-band.

Intellian’s v240M provides outstanding 2.4m performance in both frequency bands, delivering faster download speeds, increased offshore coverage in Ku-band and significant improvements in link economy to both the end user and service provider. Furthermore, switching time is reduced from over one minute to mere seconds.

One antenna. Two frequency bands. 2.4m performance.
