 Powered Azimuth Kit

DESCRIPTION

Introducing our powered azimuth kit with 3-inch slewing drive and Hall Effect motor. Add azimuth motor control to any of our 3.0m or larger mesh antennas.

Simply un-mount your mesh antenna from the pole and install our powered azimuth kit over your pole and tighten the cap bolts. Re-mount your dish over the powered azimuth pole and lock it down. Nothing else needs to be done. Your antenna will now have powered azimuth control over a range of 360 degrees.

Powered azimuth control along with powered elevation control will transform your polar or fixed antenna into an Az-El antenna which is useful for tracking satellites in any part of the sky! A powered Az-El mount can also be used for radio astronomy, solar tracking and other projects.

NOTE: Requires a controller to count Hall Effect pulses and provide power to the motor. We recommend using a Raspberry Pi as the controller and any 24V DC power supply. You may also use a modified SuperJack/VBox II type positioner to interpret the pulses. However, we do not provide any electronics or programming assistance. Commercial controllers are available but are quite expensive.

NOTE: Fits poles with an inner diameter between 3 to 4.5 inches. The ideal pole dimension is 4.5 inches.

NOTE: You are responsible for setting physical and software limits to prevent any damage to the antenna.

NOTE: You can add powered elevation (Az-El) with a linear actuator (sold separately).

NOTE: Wire connections are indicated in the technical specifications below. Do NOT mix up power wires with sensor wires.
