Convertible 1m Ku to Ka antenna launched by Intellian

South Korean satellite antenna manufacturer Intellian has unveiled the v100NX, the company’s new 1m Ku- to Ka-band convertible maritime VSAT terminal.

The v100NX dual-band convertible antenna has been designed for use with GEO (Geostationary Earth Orbit), MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) and LEO (Low Earth Orbit) constellations, and features an optimised reflector and radome designed for future 2.5GHz wideband Ka-band network services.

As with all NX platform antenna systems, the v100NX uses a single coaxial cable combining Tx, Rx, and DC power to simplify installation. The equipment can also connect to Intellian’s AptusNX antenna management and control software platform, including an installation wizard as well as automated functions for cable loss compensation, line-up testing, and remote diagnostics.

“It’s rewarding to bring all the innovative features of the NX series to an antenna in the industry’s most common size,” said Eric Sung, CEO, Intellian.

“As a highly adaptable, future-proof system, the v100NX provides the most advanced, yet cost-effective platform to leverage new connected applications vital to stay efficient and competitive, today and tomorrow.”

The Intellian v100NX will be commercially available from July.
