Skyware Anti-icing Equipment Antenna for 1.2m, 1.8m, and 2.4m antennas

The Skyware Global De-Icing System is custom designed for our line of VSAT RxTx antenna systems. A de-icing system prevents signal loss due to snow and ice build-up on the surface of the reflector.The Skyware Global half-aperture reflector de-icing system consists of a defrost panel that is attached to the reflector by self-drilling screws.This De-Icing system can easily be installed in the field using a socket wrench and cordless drill. Removal of two lower reflector bolts is necessary to install the defrost panel.

Moisture and temperature sensors allow the system to activate when temperatures are below 38° F and when precipita­tion exists. Heating elements supply heat uniformly over the surface of the defrost panel, which consists of the following three layers:

  • The outside layer is a heavy-duty, vinyl-coated polyester material that is especially designed for weather protection.
  • The middle layer consists of high temperature insulation.
  • The inside layer, next to the rear, lower half of the reflector, contains the heating elements.
  • All materials comply with EU directive No. 2002/95/EC (RoHS)
