1 Introduction
1
EPAK® VSAT series are digital satellite tracking systems for Internet access made for maritime applications.
Once the connection to a satellite is established, the system will stay connected due to a 360° high-speed tracking system. That
guarantees a non-stop connection to the web while the vessel is anchored or even while cruising in open seas with rough conditions.
From small vessels up to super yachts, no matter whether sailing or motor yachts, EPAK® VSAT series are eminently suitable for all
types of vessels.
The satellite tracking system is protected by a UV-stabilized and maritime climate proof radome and is easy to
handle and maintain. Please note that the given warranty for the radome is limited to the terms of the radome
manufactures. High-speed tracking sensors developed for this system, using high-tech components of the
electronic signal processing, provide the topmost and dynamic tracking accuracy of the satellite tracking system.
With the help of this technology, EPAK®-SatCom guarantees an unmatched tracking rate, dynamic and system performance.
In order to accomplish the utmost and most dynamic tracking accuracy of the satellite, EPAK®
developed the patented EBF tracking sensor, interacting with state of the art components to reach
a unique performance.
EPAK®'s major principle is to provide high tracking stability, prime quality, easy handling and easy maintenance, in order to guarantee
the best Internet connection for letting you surf without limits, just like at home.
The reception of satellite signals in different regions depends on the footprints of the satellites. It
can be affected by rain, snow, dense clouds and strong movements in areas of weak signals. There is
no warranty for reception of certain transponders.
1.1
Safety Recommendations
•
The mounting minimal distance from the antenna unit to other radiation sources, e.g. radar equipment or other transmitting
antennas, is 2.5m (8ft).
•
If the satellite antenna is not installed below the radar antenna, simultaneous operation of both systems may damage the
satellite antenna.
•
Do not use the control unit outdoors.
•
During a thunderstorm, disconnecting all cables which are connected to the antenna is recommended.
•
If the negative pole of the antenna unit's power supply has no connection to the ship's ground (protective earth), the antenna
unit's ground point should be connected directly to the ship's ground (protective earth).
•
After the installation is completed all other electronic systems, i.e. GPS, Radar, VHF, FM, AM etc., should be tested for full functionality while the antenna is turned on.
•
Do not turn the antenna on before the radome is fitted correctly. The electronics can be damaged by the reflected sun.
•
Do not touch the rotary joint.
•
Do not open the sealed electronic box, as this will void the warranty.
•
It is not allowed to use modem configurations with less than 153,6 kHz Tx Bandwidth (@ - 3 dB).

Plan the entire installation first to avoid mistakes or damages to the boat or VSAT system. Please read the installation instructions
carefully before starting the installation.
2.1
System Components
Each VSAT system is supplied with the following components:
Antenna Unit
(with serial number)
2.2
Control Unit
4 Mounting Screws
(M8)
Manual and
Software Tools
VSAT Quickstart
Installation Overview
The installation work has to be done in the following order:
Select location.
Check the mounting surface for stability.
Check cable path (keep in mind that the maximum length of the coaxial cables is 25 meters).
Check the position of power distributor.
Drill holes and lay cable.
Install antenna unit.
Seal all installation openings to make them waterproof.
Connect cables.
For the installation the following additional tools are required:
Electric Drill;
Screwdriver
2.3
One 4 mm and One
8.5-9 mm Drill Bits
Hexagon Socket
Screw Key
Size 6
8 mm Screw Wrench
Selecting Location
The best location for the VSAT system is a raised position on your vessel, to provide the needed unobstructed view from the antenna
to the satellite with the respective elevation angle. Please note that the elevation angle depends on the geographical location and
the selected satellite.
For the best signal quality and to preserve the antenna, please observe the minimum safety distance of 2-3m (8-12ft) to radar
equipment and other transmitting antennas. This includes mobile communication units as well.
If there is a radar, the ideal location to mount the antenna is outside the radar‘s beam pattern. Please note that a strong mounting
surface is needed. Avoid direct waves and water on the radome. For further details see chapters 2.4 – 2.9.
5
The following illustrations show the importance of a proper location for the antenna unit.
Bad location: in such a situation is very likely to
incur a wide blind spot.
2.4
Good location: by setting the antenna to one
end of the ship, the obstacle can be overcome.
Best location: when possible, place the antenna on the top of the boat.
Mounting Surface
A horizontal, solid, steady and flat surface has to be ensured. The weight of the antenna unit can be 37 kg (81.6 lbs) up to 65 kg
(143.3 lbs) (depending on the model) and must not be confronted with punctual material stressing. The surface has to be strong
enough to carry the antenna unit, even during the most challenging maritime conditions.
2.5
Planning Cable Paths
Before starting the installation, please check which walls are suitable and if existing openings can be used for the cables.
Please note that all cable openings have to be sealed.
2.6
Power Supply
The antenna unit is powered by the ACU using 24 V DC. The ACU is powered by a built in power supply, which is working on 230 V
AC. The maximum power consumption is 150 W. The circuit has to be properly fused.
!
Please ensure that the power distributor is non-active while working on the vessel's supply in order
to not short circuit the system.
If the negative side of the antenna unit's supply voltage has no connection to the boat ground (protective earth), make sure a potential compensation between boat ground and the ground point of the antenna unit is made.
2.7Drilling
For an ideal mounting of the antenna all possible drilling patterns are prepared with a pre-drilled hole of 2 mm in the bottom of
the radome.
Please refer to the included template for the drilling measurements. The drillings shall have a diameter of Ø 8.5 – 9 mm for the included M8 screws. It is recommended to start with a smaller hole, using a Ø 3.5 – 4 mm drill to avoid any damage to the mounting
surface. To mount the antenna, only use the included M8 mounting screws.
!
For a good and steady mounting of the antenna the drilling pattern 228.6 mm x 228.6 mm is recommended. For the drilling picture 134.2 mm x 77.5 mm you will find tapped holes at the bottom plate
of the antenna, so no nuts are necessary.

Appendix
4.1Maintenance
The EPAK® VSAT system is easy to maintain. The following instructions are sufficient to sustain an optimal performance of the antenna unit:
•
Clean the radome once a month using fresh water and a mild detergent to remove dirt and salt deposits.
•
Do not detach the radome.
•
Do not clean the radome with a high-pressure washer or high pressured water from a hose.
•
Check cable connections to be tight and free of corrosion. Clean the cables regularly.
The radome has a protective layer of UV-stabilized and maritime climate-proof coating.
Do not apply any additional paint, wax, preservative, solvent, chemicals or adhesive labels. Do not use alcohol or dilution
or similar products to clean the radome. Any kind of additional coating will void warranty claims. In case any solvent comes
in contact with the radome by accident, rinse the area immediately with water and, if necessary, with a mild detergent.
A guarantee for UV and colour stability as well as fracture strength can only be given within the warranty of the supplier / dealer.
