Introduction to Intellian v110

The Intellian v110 is a 1.05 meter Ku-band marine VSAT communication


antenna system for SCPC, broadband, or hybrid networks and is suitable
for high-speed Internet, email, file transfer, video conference, VOIP, VPNs
and database backup. The v110 is a 3-axis stabilization system designed
for the oceangoing vessels that require always on and high quality
broadband communications no matter how rough the weather and sea
conditions are.

The v110 has an unlimited azimuth range for continuous tracking


without the needs to unwrap the cables in the antenna. The wide
elevation range from -15 to 120 degrees enables the v110 to have
seamless signal reception while the vessel is traveling near the equator
or Polar Regions.

The v110 meets the FCCs 2-degree spacing requirement and is built
with Intellians extremely high vibration and shock standards. The simple
design of the v110 offers lighter weight and greater reliability than any
competitors system in its class. With easiest installation design and
most-user friendly interface you can find in the market, the v110
guarantees that you will have a whole new broadband experience at sea.

Introduction 3
Installing the Antenna

The components of the Intellian v110 have been designed to be


modular so that it is suitable for simple installation on all types of
vessels.

System Components
The Intellian v110 consists of two major units, antenna assembly unit
and antenna control unit.

Antenna Unit
The antenna unit includes an antenna pedestal inside a radome
assembly unit. The pedestal consists of a satellite antenna main dish with
RF components mounted on a stabilized pedestal. The radome protects
the antenna pedestal assembly unit from the severe marine environment.

Antenna Control Unit (ACU)
The Antenna Control Unit (ACU) provides the power to the antenna and
the BUC (block upconverter) for controlling the various settings of the
antenna. The digital VFD (Vacuum Fluorescent Display) allows for easy
operation of the ACU, even in the dark.

Planning the Installation

Selection of Antenna Installation Site


Install the antenna in accordance with the following procedures to insure
maximum per formance of the
antenna. The ideal antenna site has
a clear view of the horizon or
satellite all around. Please be sure
there are no obstacles within 15 15
degrees above the antenna. Any
obstacles can prevent the antenna Antenna Unit Obstacle
from transmitting and receiving
Figure 7. Elevation Limit of Obstacles
the satellite signal.

Do not install the antenna near by the radar especially on the same
plane as their energy levels may overload the antenna front-end circuits.
It is recommended to position the antenna at least 4 feet (1.2m) above
or below the level of the radar and minimum of 15 feet (4.6m) away
from the high power short wave radars.

The mounting platform should be rigid enough and not subjected to


excessive vibration. The movement of the antenna can be minimized by
installing at the center of the vessel. If these conditions can be only
partially satisfied, find the best compromised installation site between
the various considerations.

10 V110 Marine Satellite Communication System


Configure Radiation Hazard/Blockage Zones
It is important to setup the radiation hazard or blockage zones for
Intellian VSAT TX/RX communication systems. (See the Block Zone
Setting section of this manual). The ACU can be programmed with
relative azimuth and elevation sectors to create up to five zones where
transmit power would endanger personnel who are frequently in that
area or blockage exists. Several things happen when the antenna is
within one of these zones.

1. BLOCK will be displayed on the ACU screen.

2. Tracking continues as long as the signal level is greater than the


predefined threshold value. When the signal level drops below
the threshold value the antenna will wait Search Wait Time
parameter amount of time and re-target the satellite you
targeted last. The antenna will continue to re-target the satellite
until the satellite is re-acquired and tracking can be resumed.

3. A transmit inhibit output from the ACU will disable/mute the


modem transmit

Installing the Antenna 11


System Cables
Before installing the system cables, you need to take the following
points into consideration.
All cables need to be well clamped and protected from physical
damage and exposure to heat and humility.
Cable with an acute bend is not allowed.
Where a cable passes through an exposed bulkhead or deck
head, a watertight gland or swan neck tube should be used.

RF Cables (Customer Furnished)


Due to the voltage losses across the length of the RF coaxes at L-Band,
Intellian recommends the following 75 ohm coax cable types for
standard system installations. For cable runs longer than 70 meter,
please consult Intellian Technologies.
Run Length Coaxial Cable Type
Up to 30 meters RG-6 or LMR-300-75
Up to 70 meters RG-11 or LMR-400-75
Up to 120 meters LMR-600-75

Preparing the Installation
Unpack the v110 box
The antenna pedestal is shipped completely assembled in its radome.
Remove the four shipping blots which mount the antenna to the pallet.
The pallet should be lifted by means of suitable sized lifting equipment.
(Refer to the supplied instruction guide for details on how to unpack
wooden crate of v110.)

WARNING: The elevation and cross-level motor breaks prevent dish


damage while the antenna is in power off mode. However,
Intellian strongly recommends to restraint the antenna pedestal
properly during underway conditions when power is removed
from the antenna. The normal operating condition for the v110
is to remain powered up at all times.

Installing the System Cables
The coax cables must be inserted through the cable strain relief(s) at the
base of the radome. The cables must be routed from the antenna
through the deck and through various ship spaces to the antenna
control unit. When pulling the cables in place, avoid sharp bends,
kinking, and the use of excessive force. After placement, seal the deck
penetration glad and tie the cables securely in place.

Installing the ACU
Intellian supplies two type of mounting methods (a)19 Rack Mount
Type and (b)Table Mount Type to mount your ACU.

19 Rack Mount Type


The ACU should be installed using the two supplied Rack
Mounting Brackets which allow for a side 19 rack mounting
configuration.
Using the self tapping screws supplied, attach the mounting
brackets to the sides of the ACU.
Place the ACU in the location where it is going to be installed.
Connect the cables to the rear of the ACU.

Table Mount Type


The ACU should be installed using the two supplied Table
Mounting Brackets which allow for a top or bottom mounting
configuration.
Using the self tapping screws supplied, attach the mounting
brackets to the sides of the ACU.
Place the ACU in the location where it is going to be installed.
Using a pencil to mark the 4 hole positions (2 each side), and
use the appropriate drill bit to drill them.
Connect the cables to the rear of the ACU.

WARNING: Ensure that the installed cables are longer enough to take out
the ACU from the rack.

Installing the ACU 25


Connecting the System to a Ships Gyro
For satellite tracking, you must connect a ships Gyro to the antenna
system through the gyro interface on the rear of the ACU. Intellians ACU
supports three different gyro types, Step-by Step (SBS), Synchro and
NMEA 0183.

SBS/ Synchro/ NMEA 0183 Gyro Compass Interface Cable (Customer


Furnished)
Type: Multi-conductor (4 conductors for SBS, 5 conductors for Synchro,
and 2 conductors for NMEA 0183).

NMEA out (+) Ground (-)

Figure 24. Ships Gyro Connection

WARNING: Determine the type of gyrocompass OUTPUT on the ship,


assure that the GYRO TYPE parameter is set correctly (refer to
the operation section of this menu).Heading in most cases will
be 000.0 and you will have to enter the initial value of ships
current value whenever you turn on the ACU. The ships
heading is not required to input when your system is
connected to a 1:1 Synchro or NMEA 0183 Heading
Gyrocompass output.

Introduction
GUI Software of Intellian v110 has been created for the user to easily set
up the antenna by using the users personal computer. Using the GUI
program enables the user to easily monitor and modify the information
of antenna, satellite and GPS. Additionally, detailed diagnostic methods
of the antenna are provided by the GUI program.

To start this GUI program,


1. Connect one end of USB cable to the USB port on the computer.
2. Connect the other end of the USB cable (A-A or M-M Type) to the
PC connector in front of ACU. ( or Connect by using PC Serial Cable)
3. Execute GUI program by inserting the supplied CD-ROM into the CD-
ROM drive of the computer.
