Titanium Satellite Motor/Skew Controller
World's most advanced Actuator and Polarization controller ever.
North American Company = North American Support
Simply The Last Dish Controller You Will Ever Need
Includes Free RS232/USB Cable
Do you remember when you could simply change channels on your C-band receiver and the your BUD dish automatically moved and the polarity was automatically selected? If the signal wasn't strong enough or it had interference, you would press the skew left or skew right to raise the signal strength, attenuate interference and improve the picture quality? Titanium Satellite remembers and decided that it was time to once again make it easy to watch satellite TV, scan for new channels and provide the optimized reception that is required for reliable reception of the new demanding digital modulations! Available
There are hundreds and hundreds of C-band TV channels and thousands of radio services that are free and completely legal to enjoy. There are so many more free channels than were available even "back in the day". Yep, we remember the golden age of C-band. Almost every house in the neighborhood had a big dish and we paid thousands of dollars for equipment to watch free back-hauls and movie channels with stunning picture quality. C-band dishes are now free for the removal and usually the motors only need cleaning and grease. Feedhorns might need a wasp nest removed or a LNB replaced, but this gear was built to last and usually still is working great 30 years later! The ASC1's MSRP of $195 is about 1/3rd of the cost of a dish mover in the 1980's. The ASC1 will interface with almost any digital satellite receiver to automatically control the dish movement and polarity setting.
Do you want the performance of a polorotor feedhorn and the convenience of automatic polarity and optimized skew offset with fine tuning? Is it your dream not to juggle a legacy analog or 4DTV receiver remote just to move the dish and switch polarities each time you change the channel on the digital satellite receiver! Now any member of the house can simply change channels on your favorite digital DVBS/S2 receiver and the dish will automatically move and the polarity and offset skew is automatically selected. No more trying to remember what button sequence to move the dish to the right satellite or which channel to select to provide the correct polarity.
The ASC1 is truly a heavy duty and quality built prosumer grade controller that provides features and functions that are not even available on expensive commercial rack mount controllers costing 10x more! The ASC1 works with virtually all MPEG2/4, DVBS/S2 DiSEqC 1.2 satellite receivers and can be manually controlled by front panel or the included IR remote control if used with any receiver not supporting the standard DiSEqC 1.2 protocol. The ASC1 controls motorized linear actuators or Horizon to Horizon type dishes with reed switch type counter, mechanical or voltage controlled polarity control, LNBs, LNBFs and pass-through for control of 22Khz and DiSEqC switches. Yes, your favorite DVBS or S2 receiver can now completely control both small motorized KU dishes and the larger C-band "BUD" dishes.
Designed with the versatility to control and power both LNBFs, LNBs, pass switch commands and generate or regenerate switching voltages, the ASC1 works on virtually any consumer or commercial system. Packed with the lifting power rated to a maximum of 38Vdc at 5amps, the ASC1 will lift any motorized dish. No other consumer motor controller even comes close to the power provided by the ASC1. The F-fitting port simultaneously provides voltage that is user set to 13/18Vdc, reversed 18/13Vdc, fixed 13Vdc or fixed 18Vdc at 450mA. Our proprietary motor control feature ramps in and out the motor speed at the beginning and end of a motor movement. This minimizes wear and tear on your dish mount and frame. The ramp also allows micro adjustments when fine-tuning the dish positioning. No more speeding past the correct motor landing and having to bump the dish back and forth into position.
The ASC1 has another great feature not found on any other consumer positioner that will allow Titanium to provide new functions and save you countless hours of programming satellite positions with remote control entry. A free PC based editor and loader software program is available to connect to the ASC1 serial RS-232 port. Update with new firmware, back-up the user database by saving the satellite positions, names and polarity settings with skew offsets as a PC file. Edit satellite names, positioner counts and independent skew offsets for horizontal and vertical polarities. No more losing all of the satellite positions after a factory reset or wearing out your fingers on a remote! Share a satellite positioner file with anther ASC1 user and simply shift the positioner counts, fine tune and save the skew settings to match the new system installation. To create an even stronger hobbyist device and to develop the full potential of the ASC1 product, Titanium Satellite will provide the RS-232 command datasheet to select parties upon request. Additional commands are possible and we will support requests for additional functions, commands and feature development.
The user selectable 115/230VAC @ 50/60hz switch and user changeable rear panel fuse block feeds a dual tap transformer allowing the ASC1 to be used anywhere in the world. The user may use the appropriate regional plug configuration and readily available international standard IEC type 3 pin cord to plug into any AC power source and pin configuration. The North American version is delivered with a UL certified cord with the standard 2 blade and ground plug. International stocking distributors will be supplied with the appropriate blade configuration for their region.
Now lets talk about rugged construction. The machined aluminum housing with louvered side panels and integrated lifting handles are assembled with contrasting Allen Head hardware. The ASC1 not only looks great, but also protects your investment from the bumps and drops as the TV center is rearranged or if the unit is carried outside to align a dish. Heavy duty screw terminals ensure full voltage and sensor counts and securely attach each connection. The front panel features full function control and programming with the seven rubberized buttons and lock-out feature prevents accidental control or programming via the front panel or remote control.
The 4 line scrolling green color back lit LCD provides all programming and operational information. This includes the DiSEqC position number, satellite name, positioner count, polarity and +/-45 degree skew offset angle. Indicators show the direction of motor travel and IR/DiSEqC command confirmations and motor/command error descriptions.
A 22 key IR remote control with included AAA batteries balances well in your hand and the rubberized buttons allow ease of programming for all functions and manual ASC1 operation from the comfort of your easy chair. The line of sight operational range is approximately up to 45 feet and 60 degrees off center.
If you are searching for the highest quality and value with features that no other satellite dish controller can match, we offer for your consideration, the Titanium Satellite ASC1.
