EANC – COMPUTER CONTROLLED ANTENNA UNIT

EANC - COMPUTER CONTROLLED ANTENNA UNIT

General Descriptions

The Computer Controlled Antenna Unit, “EANC”, is an advanced system that operates in conjunction with a computer (PC), which allows the control and data acquisition of the antenna measurement by means the SCADA System (control interface box + control software).

The “EANC” performs the full-automatic 360° rotation of the transmitter antenna tower, controlled by the software, for draw the antenna radiation pattern and display it in the computer (PC) window.

The “EANC” also allows the full automatic frequency sweep in order to perform the bandwidth analysis of an antenna.

The “EANC” allows students to learn how to perform the essential antenna measurements: radiation pattern with the measure of the azimuth and elevation plots (electrical and magnetic planes), real time signal level, standing wave ratio (SWR), study the effectiveness of antenna through a wide range of frequencies (bandwidth), directivity and antenna’s power gain. All of these measures are displayed in the computer (PC), and the student can save the results for subsequent analysis.

This Computer Controlled Unit is supplied with the EDIBON Computer Control System (SCADA), and includes: The unit itself + a Control Interface Box + a Data Acquisition Board + Computer Control, Data Acquisition and Data Management Software Packages, for controlling the process and all parameters involved in the process.

ESA-Satellite Trainer

General Descriptions

The “ESA” trainer is an advanced system that operates in conjunction with a computer (PC), which allows students an easy way to manage and visualize the data. The “ESA” software allows to perform multiple actions: configuring the sending data, selecting the desired test point to visualize, selecting different faults in the equipment, etc.

The “ESA” trainer is divided into different modules to allow the student a better understanding of the unit. These modules are: Satellite Ground Transmitter Station, Satellite Ground Receiver Station, Satellite Repeater and the Control Signal and Data Acquisition Module.

The Satellite Ground Transmitter Station works as a real ground based equipment, transmitting the signal (Uplink) to the Satellite Repeater through the Satellite Ground Transmitter Antenna. The Satellite Ground Receiver Station works as a real ground based equipment, receiving the signal (Downlink) from the Satellite Repeater through the Satellite Ground Receiver Antenna. Both, Transmitter and Receiver, are connected to the computer for signal analysis, configuring the data transmission, data visualization, etc.

The Satellite Repeater Module works as real active satellite repeater. It includes a processing system that amplifies the incoming signal from the Satellite Ground Transmitter Station (Uplink) through the Satellite Receiver Antenna, and emits the processed signal in a different band of frequencies (Downlink) through the Satellite Transmitter Antenna.
