卫星天线定位

The two primary considerations when pointing a satellite dish are the angle of elevation and azimuth. The angle of elevation is the angle where your satellite dish is pointed into the sky at a (typically) 90° angle to the signal from the satellite. 0° angle of elevation is considered parallel with the earth and 90° angle of elevation is considered pointing straight up into the sky. This means that your angle of elevation will be somewhere between those two. Note that there are also “offset” antennas where the goal is not to be at a 90° angle. This is most easily accomplished with a tilt sensor or inclinometer, which is where our products come into play.

方位角本质上是指南针的方向,卫星天线需要指向卫星的方向。例如,如果一颗卫星在赤道上空,而我在北半球,卫星天线就需要指向南半球的方向。反之,如果我在南半球,则卫星天线需要指向北半球方向。

The goal of both of these positions for the satellite is to optimize the signal strength so that you have the best signal and can use the satellite service uninterrupted. If you have the GPS coordinates of your satellite dish you can easily calculate the azimuth and angle of elevation needed for an optimal signal. Higher-end satellites and mobile satellites often have an automatic angle of elevation and azimuth calculations by including a tilt sensor or inclinometer and a digital compass and include motors to automatically position the satellite dish.

The most common Fredericks tilt sensor for the angle of elevation calculations is the 0717-4318-99 tilt sensor which is our lowest cost tilt measurement option. This sensor has a ±60° range giving it a total operating range of 120°, which is more than enough for almost all satellite applications. It also has an accuracy of ±0.1°, which is again more than adequate for most satellite applications. If higher accuracy is needed, we also offer the 0717-4313-99 which has the same operating range with improved accuracy of ±0.05°.

请注意,Fredericks 倾斜传感器需要信号调节电子装置来提供角度位置输出。我们为我们的传感器提供各种信号调节板,以及预包装和环境密封的解决方案,这些解决方案具有易于使用的输出,如模拟0至5 V DC、RS-232、RS-485或SPI通信。
