Satellite Products and Services
Square 1 Products is the sole UK Distributor for Lacuna System's motorised self-seeking satellite finder systems. Lacuna Systems have used years of expertise gained in the manufacture of portable satellite meters to produce their motorized, self-seeking satellite finder dish system, the MSD-2 and it's variants.
The MSD2 supports dish sizes up to 1.2 metres and is capable of supporting the HPA and RF units typically used in VSAT and other Internet Over Satellite systems such as Gilat, Hughes and ViaSat.
The engineering has been carefully designed to provide many years of trouble-free use with minimal maintenance. The mechanics operate smoothly and quickly to provide absolutely positive identification of the client's preferred satellite.
The system quickly aligns in the three axes - elevation, azimuth and skew - to provide solid lock with the signal strength and BER optimized for high signal integrity.
Lacuna are able to provide a level of flexible design and support that is second to none within the hardware manufacturing field. Special requirements are carefully considered and implemented wherever possible, giving a level of care that ensures that we fit the customers' needs; not the other way round!
The system has been adopted by clients for mission critical applications because of its flexibility, system support and fast delivery of solutions to specific problems.
