When installing parabolic antenna, it is generally installed according to the structural drawing provided by the manufacturer. The antenna structures of various manufacturers are similar and basically the same. The reflector of the antenna structure has two types: integral and split (the reflector above 2M is basically split), and the stands mainly have two types (column stands are more common), and individual stands below 1.8m are horizontal stands.
The horizontal stand of the satcom antenna for sale is mounted on the prepared base, leveled, and then fixed by fixing the iron wire and welding (the horizontal stand can be fixed only after the azimuth angle is adjusted).
Install azimuth tray and elevation adjustment screw.
According to the order, install the reinforcing bracket and reflector on the reflector tray. When the reflector is connected with the reflector, it can be slightly fixed, so that it can not be fastened temporarily. After all are installed, adjust the plate surface to be flat and then tighten all screws. Here, it is noted that some manufacturers of split-lobe reflectors can assemble them randomly in no order, but some three lobes have mounting points for mounting feed struts, and these three lobes must be mounted in three parts, otherwise, after the feed bracket is mounted, the reflection focus of the asymmetric feed and the antenna cannot overlap, which will affect the signal gain or even prevent the signal from being received. After the integrated reflector is mounted on the tray frame, the reflector can be directly mounted on the azimuth bracket.
Install the feed support and feed fixing plate.
Installation and adjustment of feed and tuner: the feed and tuner must be aligned with the rectangular waveguide opening connecting them, and the waveguide opening should be flat. A sealing ring should be added between the two waveguide openings and the screws should be tightened to prevent water seepage. Install the connected feed tuner on the feed fixing plate, and align it with the centre of the parabolic antenna to focus.
