STUTTGART, GERMANY – Hiltron Communications, one of Europe’s leading satellite equipment manufacturers and system integrators, reports strong demand for its latest-generation HCS-4 satellite communications controller. More than 70 units have been sold for antenna control applications since the HCS-4 was introduced in September 2015. An additional 10 customised systems incorporating the HCS-4 have been delivered since July 2017.

Designed and produced by Hiltron, the HCS-4 was developed from its HCS3 predecessor which reached four-figure sales following its introduction to the satellite broadcast and communications market in 1997. Maintaining the reliability and functionality of the HCS-3, the HCS-4 forms the central control element for a wide range of satcom applications. These include easy switchover between devices such as downconverters, high power amplifiers, waveguides, MPEG digital video broadcast encoders and integrated receiver/decoders. The HCS-4 can also be used to control and monitor optical-fibre transceivers and antenna heaters. Other features include an N-1 redundancy switch and BUC/HPA controller, LNB supply, 2-1 LNB redundancy switch controller, a fully redundant low-noise 10 MHz reference generator, GPS synchronisation and automatic switchover.
