The antenna unit houses the antenna positioning mechanism, GPS, LNB (low noise block), and control elements within a radome. Weathertight connectors join the power, signal, and control cabling from the belowdecks units.
MCU (Master Control Unit)
The MCU is the system’s user interface, providing access to the system and its functions through an LCD and three buttons. The MCU also serves as the vessel’s junction box, allowing the system to use vessel power and supply and receive data to/from the TracVision M9.
Your TracVision M9 system uses integrated DVB® technology to quickly acquire and track the correct satellite, switch between satellites, and send TV signals to the receiver. The system includes a GPS sensor, ensuring that the system acquires your selected satellite in the shortest time possible.
The TracVision M9 system uses a state-of-the-art actively stabilized antenna system. Once the satellite is acquired, the system’s internal gyros continuously measure the heading, pitch, and roll of your vessel and send commands to the antenna motors, keeping the antenna pointed at the satellite at all times - even while you’re on the move!
Dual-satellite Tracking Capability
Your TracVision M9 is capable of tracking two selected satellites, as long as the antenna is located within the selected satellites’ coverage area. During installation, your TracVision system should have been set up to track your desired satellites, allowing you to switch between your selected satellites quickly and easily.
Automatic Skew Adjustment (Linear Version Only)
When you change location or switch satellites, the TracVision M9 automatically adjusts the LNB skew for the selected satellite.
The TracVision M9 includes a pre-programmed satellite library of the most popular satellite services, offering a wide variety of satellite services to choose from. Using a PC, you can also add up to two additional satellites of your choice to the satellite library.
