Raven 1.2m inclined orbit motorised dish.
Raven 1.2m dish with inclined orbit polar mount using two actuators.
Heavy duty Raven 1.2m dish with inclined orbit polar mount with Primesat 0.1dB single LNB.
The 18 inch
actuator can go on either side. The 12 inch
heavy duty actuator is for up and down adjustment. This is
ideal for tracking inclined orbit satellites. Two positioners are needed. These can be a Primesat V Box
for control east and
west using a modern HD satellite receiver in automatic mode or in manual mode and up and down using the 2nd V Box
positioner. Manual mode would be using the handsets which came with the positioners. All satellite positions can be stored. For
inclined orbit satellites a timing chart is useful (ring
us for further advice).
The inclined orbit motor kit
is available separately.
About the motor unit - This motor unit is produced by our sister company www.primesat.eu
for the Satellite Superstore.
It is designed for the 1.2m Raven dish. The "dish back plate frame" is etch primed, primed, powder coated and baked in an
oven to provide a durable finish. The rest of the polar mount including the collar is dipped galvanised. All of the nuts
and bolts are made of stainless steel except the main elevation adjuster which are made of brass. The polar mount includes
a frame which is designed to fit on the back of the Raven 1.2m dish using the 4 bolts which come with the Raven dish.
Weight of polar mount 18Kg. Weight of actuators 10Kg. Total weight 28Kg. This polar mount motor unit is designed to
clamp onto a 80mm diameter pole. An ideal ground stand is the Primesat GS76125
stand. Note - Raven dishes were
formally "Andrews dishes" and before that "Channel Master". This heavy duty polar mount and actuators can take high wind
loads. Using a Diseqc receiver, two optional V Box are also needed. This converts Diseqc commands to 36-volt positioning and
is fully automatic. it also introduces more power to drive the heavy duty 36 volt motor east and west.
Two discounted V Boxes
are avaiable below.
A single Primesat Platinum
high performance 0.1dB LNB from "Primesat Professional Products
" is available.
This LNB is ideal for low signal areas. Suitable for HD. Suitable for 3D. Suitable for 4K. A very high quality product.
White is an excellent colour for an LNB for two reasons. The first is it looks better. When looking up at a satellite dish,
there is mostly a light or cloudy sky and so white against the sky blends in very well. The second reason is more technical.
White keeps the LNB's internal heat in during the winter and in the summer white reflects the external heat from the sun.
This keeps the LNB cooler and results in less extreme temperature cycling. Temperature cycling should be kept to a minimum
for performance to be maintained. A white cap is even more important as it reflects the suns heat (which can focus on the cap)
and prevent a hole from burning through the cap. If there was a hole in the cap the spiders can crawl in and block the signal.
Only the TV signal should go through the cap, not the heat. In addition, there are better connections due to gold connectors.
The one piece reflector is thermoset-molded glass fiber reinforced polyester for strength and rigidity and surface accuracy.
An ultimate dish system for enthusiasts. The polar mount collar fits an 80mm pole or ground stand.
It is, possible to upgrade the single LNB to a twin
LNB. Another alternative is to use the
Raven matched feedhorn and LNB
options. A suitable 1m high 76mm diameter pole (discounted) ground stand is below

. A motorised Raven 1.2m
dish is also available.
Note - a standard motorised version
of this dish is also available. A C Band LNB support boss / bracket.

Raven matched feedhorn and LNB options
In stock and ready for immediate shipping. Raven feedhorn for all Raven offset dishes. Ideal with the 1.2m, 1.8m and 2.4m
Raven dishes. (Raven dishes were formally "Andrews" and before that "Channel Master") Highly recommended with these dishes.
Use this feedhorn with a C120 flange LNB for better matching & higher gain than a 40mm clamp LNB of equivalent noise level.
Why buy a high quality Raven dish and use a compromise 40mm mass market LNB where the feed is made for ANY
Taking a 1.2m dish as an example - A 40mm LNB may only illuminate 1.1m of dish area or perhaps 1.3m of dish area
(i.e. including noise round the edges) but with a matched feedhorn, exactly 1.2m of dish area is illuminated. This feedhorn
is for offset dishes and can also be used on other makes of offset dish. It comes with adapters for either 23mm or 40mm clamps
and it comes with the ultimate Inverto LNB. The best combination money can buy. And YES !! We do have Raven feedhorns in stock.
Inverto LNBs are high output LNBs and work better than other LNBs when the cable run is long. This is a dish option, To buy
this feedhorn and LNB separately, go to the Feedhorn
