EPAK STABILIZED SATELLITE ANTENNAS

Designed to bring SD or HD satellite TV on-board

EPAK maritime satellite television antennas track the satellite signal while the ship is in motion. The fully automated systems can operate on all Ku-Band services worldwide. EPAK's TVRO stabilized antennas are easy to install / operate and allow access to thousands of TV channels from all over the world, for instance on Hispasat, Astra, Thor, Nilesat or Hotbird. Their reliability and performance have gained the trust of many public and private customers.


"R" stands for River
The systems of the R-Series have been developed for calm waters, especially inland waterways. Due to their optimized tracking and re-lock characteristics they are suitable for the demanding conditions of inland waters.


"S" stands for Sea
The S-Series antennas are equipped with the Evolution Technology, meaning they have two gyros. This technology allows them to reach a faster tracking speed and compensate for stronger ship movements. They are typically used on yachts or commercial ships that travel on open sea away from the coast.


"DS" stands for Deep Sea
DS series: The DS series has undergone extensive development in 2020. This includes the addition of a fourth movement axis and the conversion to tracking with 6D inertial sensors. This allows tracking speeds of up to 50°/second to be achieved. The antennas have an automatically tracking skew and an extended elevation range of up to 120° and can thus provide reliable signal quality for the toughest requirements on rough seas. The DS antennas offer additional features such as control via a web interface, the possibility of remote maintenance or a plug-and-play SIM card input for low-cost and fast LTE Internet.


"EPAK" stands for Quality
Regardless of whether R-series, S-series or DS-series, you will be impressed by the performance of the TV reception. EPAK antennas are developed and manufactured in Germany and are subject to strict quality standards. To ensure the longevity of the antennas, we use high quality and seawater resistant materials.
