INSTALLING THE MOTOR

I. Traditional Installation:

  1. Aiming TRUE SOUTH.
  2. Attaching the Antenna Dish to the Motor. Make sure it is at the center of the mounting tube. Rotate the motor together with the antenna towards TRUE SOUTH. You can find the TRUE SOUTH via the magnetic variation table and a compass that indicates the MAGNETIC SOUTH.

  3. Setting Elevation Angle of the Motor.
  4. Adjust the motor elevation angle via the Inclinometer or the Elevation / Latitude scale on both sides of the Motor.

  5. Setting Angle of the Dish.
  • Attach the Dish onto the motor. The centerline on the tube of the motor can help to mount the Dish on the center. Find the Declination Angle by the attached ANGLE TABLE.
  • Set the Declination Angle by the scale on the antenna dish. The reading on the Dish scale should be:

30X - DECLINATION ANGLE

  1. Drive the antenna east and west via the manual button on the bottom of the Motor or via Receiver to check if the reception arc is correct. If not, adjust the direction, elevation, and declination angle to find the best reception.
  2. p.s. Please connect the Motor to the receiver via coaxial cable to get the power. The Green LED will light on if the power from the receiver is on.

II. Quick Installation (A receiver with Goto X Function is recommended):

Rotate the motor together with the antenna towards TRUE SOUTH roughly first

    1. Set Elevation Angle of the motor:
    2. According to the Latitude of your location, set the elevation angle of the motor. There is also a Latitude scale on the other side of the motor.

    3. Mount the Dish:
    4. Mount the Dish onto the motor. The centerline on the tube of the motor can help to mount the Dish on the center.
      Find the Declination Angle by the attached ANGLE TABLE.
      Set the Declination Angle by the scale on the antenna dish. The reading on the Dish scale should be:
      30X - DECLINATION ANGLE Please refer to the drawing on Page 2.

    5. Drive the motor to the position for a favorite satellite:
    6. According to your Longitude and the position of the wanted satellite, drive the motor to the right position. For example, a user in Paris (Longitude is 2.5XE) wants to aim the Hot Bird (13XE). Just drive the motor to 10.5XE(=13-2.5) via the manual button.
      If the receiver has Goto X function, just input the longitude and wanted satellite, the receiver can calculate and drive the motor to right angle automatically.

    7. Aim the Satellite:
    8. Move the whole unit around the pole to find the strongest signal from the wanted satellite.
      Tighten everything and the installation is finished. It will take about only 10 minutes.
