Do not service or adjust alone
Do not attempt internal service or adjustments unless another person, capable of rendering first aid resuscitation, is
present.
Grounding, cables and connections
To minimize shock hazard and to protect against lightning, the equipment chassis and cabinet must be connected to
an electrical ground. The Above & Below Decks Equipments must be grounded to the ship. For further grounding
information refer to the Installation chapter of this manual.
Do not extend the cables beyond the lengths specified for the equipment. The cable between the ACU and Above
Deck Unit can be extended if it complies with the specified data concerning cable losses etc.
All coaxial cables are to be shielded and should not be affected by magnetic fields. However, try to avoid running
cables parallel to high power and AC/RF wiring as it might cause malfunction of the equipment.
Power supply
The +24 VDC voltage to the Above Deck Equipment is provided by the LMXP.

Sea Tel TVHD Antenna Systems
Site Survey
There are three objective of the site survey. The first is to find the best place to mount the antenna and the BDE. The
second is to identify the length and routing of the cables and any other items or materials that are required to install the
system. The third is to identify any other issues that must be resolved before or during the installation.
2.1.
Site Selection Aboard The Ship
The radome assembly should be installed at a location aboard ship where:
•
The antenna has a clear line-of-sight to view as much of the sky (horizon to zenith at all bearings) as is
practical.
•
X-Band (3cm) Navigational Radars:
•
•
The ADE should be mounted more than 0.6 meters/2 feet from 2kW (24 km) radars
•
The ADE should be mounted more than 2 meters/8 feet from 10kW (72 km) radars
•
The ADE should be mounted more than 4 meters/12 feet from 160kW (250km) radars
S-Band (10cm) Navigational Radars:
•
If the ADE is/has C-Band it should be mounted more than 4 meters/12 feet from the S-band
Radar.
•
The ADE should not be mounted on the same plane as the ship's radar, so that it is not directly in the
radar beam path.
•
The ADE should be mounted more than 2.5 meters/8 feet from any high power MF/HF antennas
(<400W).
•
The ADE should be mounted more than 4 meters/12 feet from any high power MF/HF antennas
(1000W).
•
The ADE should also be mounted more than 4 meters/12 feet from any short range (VHF/UHF) antennae.
•
The ADE should be mounted more than 2.5 meters/8 feet away from any L-band satellite antenna.
•
The ADE should be mounted more than 3 meters/10 feet away from any magnetic compass installations.
•
The ADE should be mounted more than 2.5 meters/8 feet away from any GPS receiver antennae.
•
Another consideration for any satellite antenna mounting is multi-path signals (reflection of the satellite
signal off of nearby surfaces arriving out of phase with the direct signal from the satellite) to the antenna.
This is particularly a problem for the onboard GPS, and/or the GPS based satellite compass.
•
The ADE and the BDE should be positioned as close to one another as possible. This is necessary to
reduce the losses associated with long cable runs.
•
This mounting platform must also be robust enough to withstand the forces exerted by full rated wind
load on the radome.
•
The mounting location is robust enough that it will not flex or sway in ships motion and be sufficiently
well re-enforced to prevent flex and vibration forces from being exerted on the antenna and radome.
•
If the radome is to be mounted on a raised pedestal, it MUST have adequate size, wall thickness and
gussets to prevent flexing or swaying in ships motion. In simple terms it must be robust.
If these conditions cannot be entirely satisfied, the site selection will inevitably be a “best” compromise between
the various considerations.
2.2.
Antenna Shadowing (Blockage)
Any substantial structures in the path between the front of the antenna and the satellite it is pointing to will cause
significant degradation of the signal. The location of the ADE should be chosen to minimize blockage caused by
the structures of the ship. It is desirable to be mounted high enough to minimize the effects of the surrounding
structures while not being mounted too high (refer to mounting height information below). Large, solid, structures
will cause significant signal loss while wire rope stays, lifelines, small diameter handrails and other accessories may
cause little to no noticeable loss.

Mounting Foundation
2.3.1.
Mounting on Deck or Deckhouse
While mounting the ADE on a mast is a common solution to elevate the ADE far enough above the
various obstructions which create signal blockages, sometimes the best mounting position is on a deck or
deckhouse top. These installations are inherently stiffer than a mast installation, if for no other reason
than the design of the deck/deckhouse structure is prescribed by the ship’s classification society. In the
deck/deckhouse design rules, the minimum plating and stiffener guidelines are chosen to preclude high
local vibration amplitudes.
Most installations onto a deck or deckhouse structure will require a mounting pedestal to raise the ADE
above the deck for radome hatch access and to allow the full range of elevation (see ADE mounting
considerations above). Some care must be taken to ensure the mounting pedestal is properly aligned
with the stiffeners under the deck plating.
2.3.2.
ADE Mounting Considerations
Mounting the radome directly on the deck/ platform prevents access to
the hatch in the base of the radome unless an opening is designed into
the mounting surface to allow such entry. If there is no access to the
hatch the only way to service the antenna is to remove the radome top.
Two people are required to take the top off of the radome without
cracking or losing control of it, but even with two people a gust of wind
may cause them to lose control and the radome top may be
catastrophically damaged (see repair information in the radome
specifications).
If access to the hatch cannot be provided in the mounting surface,
provide a short ADE support pedestal to mount the ADE on which is tall
enough to allow access into the radome via the hatch.
Ladder rungs must be provided on all mounting stanchions greater than
3-4 feet tall to allow footing for personnel safety when entering the
hatch of the radome.
When strain relief glands are being used the recommended cable
passage will be in/out the starboard side of the base of the radome
approximately 12 inches from the center of the radome base, down
along the side if the pedestal, through the deck and into the interior of
the ship.
2.3.3.
Sizing of the support pedestal
The following should be taken into account when choosing the height of a mounting support stand:
1. The height of the pedestal should be kept as short as possible, taking into account
recommendations given in other Sea Tel Guidelines.
2. The minimum height of the pedestal above a flat deck or platform to allow access into the
radome for maintenance should be 0.6 meters (24 inches).
3. The connection of the ADE mounting plate to the stanchion and the connection of the pedestal
to the ship should be properly braced with triangular gussets (see graphic above). Care should
be taken to align the pedestal gussets to the ship’s stiffeners as much as possible. Doublers or
other reinforcing plates should be considered to distribute the forces when under-deck
stiffeners are inadequate.
4. The diameter of the pedestal stanchion shall not be smaller than 100 millimeters (4 inches).
Where the ADE base diameter exceeds 1.5 meters (60 inches), additional stanchions (quantity
greater than 3) should be placed rather than a single large stanchion.
5. Shear and bending should be taken into account in sizing the ADE mounting plate and
associated gussets.
6. Shear and bending must be taken into account when sizing the pedestal to ship connection.
7. All welding should be full penetration welds –V-groove welds with additional fillet welds – with
throats equivalent to the thickness of the thinnest base material.
8. For an ADE mounted greater than 0.6 meters (24 inches) above the ship’s structure, at least one
(1) foot rung should be added. Additional rungs should be added for every 0.3 meter (12
inches) of pedestal height above the ship’s structure.
9. For an ADE mounted greater than 3 meters (9 feet) above the ship’s structure, a fully enclosing
cage should be included in way of the access ladder, starting 2.3 meters (7 feet) above the ship’s
structure.

Mounting Height
The higher up you
mount the antenna
above the pivot point
of the ship the higher
the tangential
acceleration (g-force)
exerted on the
antenna will be (see
chart below).
When the g-force
exerted on the
antenna is low,
antenna stabilization
and overall
performance are not
affected.
If the g-force exerted
on the antenna is high
enough (> 1 G),
antenna stabilization
and overall
performance are
affected.
If the g-force exerted on the antenna is excessive (1-2 Gs), the antenna does not maintain stabilization and may
be physically damaged by the g-force.
2.5.
Mast Configurations
Sea Tel recommends mounting the ADE in a location that has both a clear line-of-sight to the target satellites in all
potential azimuth/elevation ranges and sufficient support against vibration excitement. If possible, mounting the
ADE pedestal directly to ship deckhouse structures or other box stiffened structures is preferred. However, in
many cases, this imposes limits on the antenna system’s clear line-of-sight.
Often the solution for providing the full azimuth/elevation range the antenna needs is to mount the ADE on the
ship’s mast. Unfortunately, masts do not consider equipment masses in design and often have harmonic
frequencies of their own.
There are many designs of masts used on ships – masts are nearly as unique in design as the ship is – but the
designs often fall into a few categories. These categories can be addressed in terms of typical responses and
problems with regards to vibration and mounting of ADE. The most common categories of masts are:
2.5.1.
Vertical Masts
Vertical masts are a very ancient and common mast design. In essence, it is the mast derived from the
sailing mast and adapted for mounting the ever-increasing array of antennae which ships need to
communicate with the world. This drawing of a
vertical mast shows the preferred mounting of
the ADE center-line above the plane of the
radar. Alternatively the ADE is mounted below
the plane of the radar signal
Vertical masts are most commonly found on
cargo ships – they are simple, inelegant and
functional. They are also fairly stiff against
torsional reaction and lateral vibrations, as long
as the ADE is mounted on a stiff pedestal near
the vertical centerline of the mast. If centerline
mounting is impractical or otherwise prohibited,
the mast platform the ADE is mounted on
should be checked for torsional vibration about the centerline of the mast and the orthogonal centerline
of the platform.
If the estimated natural frequency of the mast or platform is less than 35 Hertz, the mast or platform
should be stiffened by the addition of deeper gussets under the platform or behind the mast.

2.5.2.
Site Survey
Raked Masts
Raked masts are found on vessels where the
style or appearance of the entire vessel is
important. Again, the inclined mast is a direct
descendant from the masts of sailing ships – as
ship owners wanted their vessels to look more
unique and less utilitarian, they ‘raked’ the masts
aft to make the vessel appear capable of speed.
This drawing shows a raked mast, again with the
preferred ADE mounting above the radar and
alternate with the ADE below the radar.
Raked masts pose special problems in both
evaluating the mast for stiffness and mounting
of antennae. As can be seen in the drawing, all
antennae must be mounted on platforms or
other horizontal structures in order to maintain
the vertical orientation of the antenna
centerline. This implies a secondary member
which has a different natural frequency than the raked mast’s natural frequency. In order to reduce the
mass of these platforms, they tend to be less stiff than the main box structure of the raked mast. Thus,
they will have lower natural frequencies than the raked mast itself. Unfortunately, the vibratory forces
will act through the stiff structure of the raked mast and excite these lighter platforms, to the detriment
of the antenna.
2.5.3.
Girder Masts
Girder masts are large platforms atop a pair of
columns. Just like girder constructions in
buildings, they are relatively stiff athwart ship
– in their primary axis – but less stiff
longitudinally and torsionally. An example of a
girder mast is shown in this drawing, with the
preferred ADE mounting outboard and above
the radar directly on one of the columns and
alternate with the ADE centered on the girder
above the plane of the radar.
The greatest weakness of girder masts is in
torsion – where the girder beam twists about
its vertical centerline axis. As with all mast designs discussed so far, mounting the antenna in line with
the vertical support structure will reduce the vibration tendencies. Mounting the antenna directly above
the girder columns provides ample support to the antenna pedestal and locates the antenna weight
where it will influence the natural frequency of the mast the least.
2.5.4.
Truss Mast
Truss masts are a variant on the girder mast
concept. Rather than a pair of columns
supporting a girder beam, the construction is a
framework of tubular members supporting a
platform on which the antennae and other
equipment are mounted. A typical truss mast is
shown in this photograph.
Like a girder mast, truss masts are especially
stiff in the athwart ship direction. Unlike a
girder mast, the truss can be made to be nearly
as stiff in the longitudinal direction. Truss
masts are particularly difficult to estimate the
natural frequency – since a correct modeling
includes both the truss structure of the
supports and the plate/diaphragm structure of
the platform. In general, the following
guidelines apply when determining the
adequate support for mounting an antenna on
a truss mast:
1. Antenna ADE pedestal gussets should align with platform stiffeners which are at least 200
millimeters in depth and 10 millimeters in thickness.
2-4
Site Survey
Sea Tel TVHD Antenna Systems
2.
3.
When possible, the antenna ADE pedestal column should align with a vertical truss support.
For every 100 kilograms of ADE weight over 250 kilograms, the depth of the platform stiffeners
should be increased by 50 millimeters and thickness by 2 millimeters.
Sea Tel does not have a recommended arrangement for a truss mast – the variability of truss mast
designs means that each installation needs to be evaluated separately.
2.6.
Safe Access to the ADE
Safe access to the ADE should be provided. Provisions of the ship’s Safety Management System with regard to
men aloft should be reviewed and agreed with all personnel prior to the installation. Installations greater than 3
meters above the deck (or where the access starts at a deck less than 1 meter in width) without cages around the
access ladder shall be provided with means to latch a safety harness to a fixed horizontal bar or ring.
The access hatch for the ADE shall be oriented aft, or inboard, when practical. In any case, the orientation of the
ADE access hatch shall comply with the SMS guidelines onboard the ship. Nets and other safety rigging under the
ADE during servicing should be rigged to catch falling tools, components or fasteners.
2.7.
Below Decks Equipment Location
The Antenna Control Unit (LMXP) is a standard 19” rack mount enclosure, therefore, preferred installation is in a
standard 19” equipment rack. The ACU mounts from the front of the rack.
The Satellite Receivers, multi-switch and any other associated equipment should be properly mounted for
shipboard use.
Plans to allow access to the rear of the ACU, and other equipment, should be considered.
2.8.
Cables
During the site survey, walk the path where the cables will be installed. Pay particular attention to how cables will
be installed; such as what obstacles they will be routed around, difficulties that will be encountered and the overall
length of the cables. The ADE should be installed using good electrical practice. Sea Tel recommends referring to
IEC 60092-352 for specific guidance in choosing cables and installing cables onboard a ship. Within these
guidelines, Sea Tel will provide some very general information regarding the electrical installation.
In general, all cable shall be protected from chaffing and secured to a cableway. Cable runs on open deck or down
a mast shall be in metal conduit suitable for marine use. The conduit shall be blown through with dry air prior to
passing cable to ensure all debris has been cleared out of the conduit and again after passing the cable to ensure
no trapped moisture exists. The ends of the conduit shall be sealed with cable glands (preferred), mastic or low
VOC silicon sealant after the cables have been passed through.
Cables passing through bulkheads or decks shall be routed through approved weather tight glands.
2.8.1.
ADE/BDE Coaxial Cables
The first concern with the coaxial cables installed between the ADE & BDE is length. This length is used
to determine the loss of the various possible coax, Heliax or fiber-optic cables that might be used. You
should always provide the lowest loss cables to provide the strongest signal level into the satellite
receivers.
Be sure that the shield(s) of the coaxes are not in contact with the ships ground.
The coaxes must be of adequate conductor cross-sectional surface area for the length of the cable run
and that the loop resistance of the cable run is less than 2.0 ohms. Copper clad iron center conductor
cables should never be used.
Signal cable shall be continuous from the connection within the ADE radome, through the structure of
the ship to the BDE. Splices, adapters or dummy connections will degrade the signal level and are
discouraged.
Be careful of sharp bends that kink and damage the cable. Use a proper tubing bender for Heliax bends.
Penetrations in watertight bulkheads are very expensive, single cable, welded penetrations that must be
pressure tested.
Always use good quality connectors that are designed to fit properly on the cables you are using. Poor
quality connectors have higher loss, can allow noise into the cable, are easily damaged or fail
prematurely.
In as much as is possible, don’t lay the coaxes on power cables. Try to have some separation from
Inmarsat & GPS cables that are also passing L-band frequencies or radar cables that may inject pulse
repetition noise –as error bits - into your cables.
One of these coaxes provides power to the ADE. Be cautious of length of the run, for voltage loss issues,
and assure that the gauge of the conductors in this coax cable is adequate for the current that is
expected to be drawn (plus margin). This cable must be low loop resistance and have a solid coper center
conductor.

Site Survey
ACU Power Cable/Outlet
The AC power for the LMXP is not required to be from a UPS, but it is recommended. The LMXP supplies
power to the ADE. The power cable provided by Sea Tel complies with the provisions of IEC 60092-350
and -35.
2.8.3.
Gyro Compass Cable
Use good quality shielded cables (twisted pairs, individually foil wrapped, outer foil with braid overall is
best). For NMEA connection, use 2-wire (twisted pair) shielded cable. Be cautious of length and gauge of
the run for voltage loss issues.
2.9.
Grounding
All metal parts of the ADE shall be grounded to bare metal that is common to the hull of the ship. This is most
commonly accomplished by attaching a ground wire/cable from the upper base plate ground point to a ground
stud on the mounting pedestal/stanchion/mast near the base of the radome. Preservation of the bare metal
contact point should be done to prevent loss of ground due to rust and/or corrosion.
Grounding by exposing bare metal under all mounting bolts of the under-side of the radome base prior to final
tightening does NOT provide adequate grounding of the ADE.
Grounding should be ensured throughout the entire mounting to the hull. While it is presumed the deckhouse is
permanently bonded and grounded to the hull, in cases where the deckhouse and hull are of different materials a
check of an independent ground bonding strap should be made. Masts should be confirmed to be grounded to
the deckhouse or hull.

Sea Tel TVHD Antenna Systems
Installation
CAUTION: The antenna/radome assembly is very light for its size and is subject to large
swaying motions if hoisted under windy conditions. Always ensure that tag lines, attached
to the radome base frame, are attended while hoisting the antenna assembly to its
assigned location aboard ship.
3.3.
ADE Installation
3.3.1.
ADE Mounting Considerations
Mounting the radome directly on the deck/ platform prevents access to
the hatch in the base of the radome unless an opening is designed into
the mounting surface to allow such entry. If there is no access to the
hatch the only way to service the antenna is to remove the radome top.
Two people are required to take the top off of the radome without
cracking or losing control of it, but even with two people a gust of wind
may cause them to lose control and the radome top may be
catastrophically damaged (see repair information in the radome
specifications).
If access to the hatch cannot be provided in the mounting surface,
provide a short ADE support pedestal to mount the ADE on which is tall
enough to allow access into the radome via the hatch.
Ladder rungs must be provided on all mounting stanchions greater than
3-4 feet tall to allow footing for personnel safety when entering the
hatch of the radome.
When strain relief glands are being used the recommended cable
passage will be in/out the starboard side of the base of the radome
approximately 12 inches from the center of the radome base, down
along the side if the pedestal, through the deck and into the interior of
the ship.
3.3.2.

Sea Tel TVHD Antenna Systems
Dealer Login Pages – LMXP
The style of the compass rose graphic can be changed by clicking on the compass and then toggle it using
“Shift” + “C” on the keyboard.
1. The default is the English ‘N’, ‘S’, ‘E’, and ‘W’ representing North, South, East and West directions.
2. The second set is pertinent to French or Spanish speakers with ‘N’, ‘S’, ‘E’, and ‘O’ representing
Nord, Sud, Est, and Ouest (in French).
3. The third set displays the traditional Chinese ordinal directions.
4. The fourth set displays the Cyrillic ordinal directions.
5. The fifth set displays the universal circular degrees. Here 0 or 360 degrees represents North, 90
degrees represents East, 180 degrees represents South and 270 degrees represents West.
6. The sixth set displays the radian view of the angular direction. In this set 0 or 2*pi represents
North.
The ship image within the compass rose can also be changed. To change the ‘ship’ click on the compass
graphic and then select ‘Shift’ + ‘Q’ ” on the keyboard to change to the next available ship image.
1. The default image is a shaped needle typically found in a magnetic compass needle where the
red part of the needle would be pointing due north. In this configuration the needle rotates
around while the outer compass rose directions remain static.
2. The second image is of a standard sailboat silhouette. In this profile the compass rose rotates
and the sailboat silhouette remains static.
3. The third image is a large ship silhouette. Much like the sailboat the large ship remains static
while the compass rose rotates around it.
4. The fourth image is intended to be a catamaran silhouette. Again, the ship remains static while
the compass rose rotates around it.
The Red Arrow indicates the position of the antenna, both relative to the bow of
the ship and to the true azimuth pointing angle.
The final compass element is the representation of blockage zones. Blockage
zones are represented on the compass as a transparent red wedge overlaying the
entire blockage section on the compass (using the start and end positions entered
on the Configuration – System page. The drawing of the blockage zones can be
turned off by clicking on the compass and pressing “Shift” + “B”.
The Pointing Information graphic is displayed in the middle right of the banner.
This graphic is comprised of a list of values.
Sat Lon – is the satellite longitude of the current satellite.
Azimuth - is the true azimuth pointing angle of the antenna.
Elevation - is the elevation pointing angle of the antenna.
Relative - is the azimuth pointing angle of the antenna, relative to the bow of the
ship.
Polang - is the polarization angle of the feed.
The LED / Status / Signal graphic is displayed in the far right of the banner. This graphic is comprised of
Tracking (ON/OFF) on the top,
Satellite Lock or other status messages will be displayed in the
center area.
If there are Errors, you can click on the “View” to see which
errors are present in the system.
Signal - The bottom contains signal level information, displayed
as a digital value of AGC and as a relative bar graph. Along the
bar graph is an arrow marker, with a digital value, representing
the current Threshold value. When the signal level is greater than the Threshold value, the segments of
the bar graph will be green and when signal is lower than Threshold they will be red.

Configuration – Communication Interfaces
The Communication Interfaces page provides the ability for the dealer to define system settings to ensure the
LMXP’s ability to properly communicate with all Above Decks and/or Below Decks Equipment, whether supplied by
Cobham SATCOM or not, as a part of normal operation or system maintenance.
The Communication Interface page is divided into 4 sub-sections, each of which is described below.
5.4.1.
Network Configuration
Network configuration is contained in this portion of the page. Defines the systems Ethernet based
communication settings.
Addresses, Ports and Telnet – This information is typically left “as is” for a system which will only be
accessed infrequently from a single computer. If the system will be connected to a LAN to allow access
from multiple computers, then the addresses will need to be changed to be appropriate for the addresses
in use in the existing network. NOTE: Changes made to this section require a system reboot to take effect.
5.4.2.
Serial Ports
Used to define the systems serial based communication settings. These are normally left at factory
default and should only be changed if necessary.

MXP NMEA 0183 - Set the Baud Rate speed of the NMEA Gyro Compass input connected to the
rear panel of the LMXP. Although the standard baud rate for NMEA 0183 is 4800, your device
may be different. Factory Default is 4800.
Console - If you will have a device connected to the Console port on the rear panel of the
LMXP, set the speed for the port to the appropriate baud rate for your device. Factory Default is
115200.
Flow Control - Set flow control ON (box checked), or OFF (Box left Un-Checked), as appropriate
for the input device. Factory Default is OFF (Unchecked).
Mode - Sets the CLI interface mode of either CLI or Legacy. Factory Default is CLI.
ICU Console - There is NO need to change the baud rate of the ICU Console port, leave it at
factory default. Factory Default is 115200.
Navigation
Gyro - Select the type of Gyro Compass input that the system will use for heading of the ship.
An NMEA 0183 Heading input is highly recommended for faster acquisition times of targeted
satellites.
Choose ‘No Gyro’ from the dropdown list if you have no
gyro compass input. You will next have to enter the
current ships heading. You must also turn ON Satellite
Reference Mode (Miscellaneous section of the
Configuration – System page).
Choose ‘Fixed’ from the dropdown list if you have no
gyro compass input and the ship remains at a fixed
heading (like an oil platform). You will next have to enter
the current ships heading. It is recommended that you turn ON Satellite Reference Mode for this
selection (Miscellaneous section of the Configuration – System page).
Choose ‘NMEA’ from the dropdown list if you have an NMEA 0183 Ships Gyro Compass input
connected to the rear panel of the LMXP. You will not need to enter the current ships heading,
as it will be automatically read from the ships gyro compass.
Gyro - Select the type of NMEA0183 Gyro Compass
data that is provided by your ships gyro compass.
Choose ‘HDD’ from the dropdown list if your gyro
compass outputs Heading Digital data.
Choose ‘HDG’ from the dropdown list if your gyro
compass outputs Heading Deviation & Variation data.
Choose ‘HDM’ from the dropdown list if your gyro
compass outputs Magnetic Heading data.
Choose ‘HDT’ from the dropdown list if your gyro compass outputs True Heading data. This is
the PREFERRED heading input.
GPS - There is a GPS mounted on the antenna (Internal) that provides automatic Latitude &
Longitude input to the system. This ships position information is used for targeting any satellite
you wish to use. Because a GPS is provided in the system, no external device is required, and
these settings should be left at factory default (Port=Internal and ID=GLL).
Should the Internal GPS fail, an external device must be
connected or periodic manual Latitude & Longitude
entry (in the LAT & LON fields) will be required to
reacquire the satellite signal if it is lost. Manual entry is
only required to a tenth of a degree.
LAT entry format is ##.# followed by N or S for
North or South (ie 38.0 N).
LAT entry format is ###.# followed by E or W

for East or West (ie 122.0 W).
If an external device is connected for use;
Set the Port to the correct selection for the device and the electrical connection on the rear
panel of the LMXP.
Then select the correct sentence type from the ID dropdown list.

The GPS ID string is selected to match the NMEA 0183
string provided by the GPS which is selected (factory
default for the “Internal” GPS is GLL).
Dry Alarms
This section allows you to define what Error, Informational, or Warning Codes, (if any) will trigger one of
two dry alarm contact sets accessed via the rear panel of the LMXP. Refer to the IMA Command Line
Interface document for list of these supported messages and correlated code number.
When configured, and electrically connected, the dry alarm contacts can be used to provide
(programmable) alarm output to other equipment/systems. Switched outputs have ability to use 4.7K
ohm pull up or pull down resistors and can provide Current sink of 0.5 amps max. Contacts are Normally
Open for No Alarm state and are Closed/Shorted when the programmed alarm state exists.

Sea Tel TVHD Antenna Systems
Blockage Zones
Blockage Zones: Names and defines known regions where line of site will be blocked.
The LMXP can be programmed with relative azimuth
sectors (zones) where blockage exists. Your LMXP
software allows you to set up to four zones.
When you create these ZONES, several things happen
when the antenna is within any one of the zones:
1. Tracking continues as long as the AGC value is
greater than the Threshold value. When the
AGC value drops below Threshold, the antenna
will simply hold its’ pointing angles (this keeps
the systems angular positions pointed where
the satellite is at).
2. While still within the blockage zone, if AGC
rises above Threshold, tracking will resume.
This would happen if the blockage zone start &
end positions are wider than the actual
structure that is causing the blockage.
3. When exiting the blockage zone, if AGC has
NOT risen above Threshold, a search pattern
will be automatically be initiated. This could
happen if the blockage zone start & end
positions are narrower than the actual
structure that is causing the blockage or that
the antenna is no longer pointed where the
satellite should be (i.e. faulty gyro compass input caused the antenna to be mispointed). When
search limit is reached, the system will re-target the satellite, wait search delay and then search
again. This cycle will continue until the satellite is re-acquired and tracking can resume.
To program zones into the LMXP:
1. Enter a readily identifiable name for the zone (i.e. Mast, Deck House or Stack).
2. Moving to the right, enter the relative bearing of
the starting point of this blockage zone (the
more counter-clockwise bearing).
3. Then enter the relative bearing of the stop point
of this blockage zone (the more clockwise of the
two bearings).
4. Enter in the Elevation angle of the TOP of the
blockages zone. This value is equal to the
calculated angle from beam center of the
reflector to the upper most portion of the
structure being defined.
A transparent red wedge overlaying each blockage section on the compass in the top banner will be
displayed when this display is turned ON (see top banner info).

5.7.2.11.
Search Pattern:
From the dropdown list, select the type of search pattern you want
the antenna to perform when searching for this satellite.
5.7.2.11.1. Inclined Orbit Search Pattern
Some older satellites, in order to save fuel to keep them exactly positioned over the
Equator, are in an inclined geosynchronous orbit. The satellite remains geosynchronous
but is no longer geostationary. From a fixed observation point on Earth, it would appear
to trace out a figure-eight with lobes oriented north-southward once every twenty-four
hours. The north-south excursions of the satellite may be too far off the center point
for a default box search pattern to find that satellite at all times during the 24 hour
period.
When a search begins;
Initially the antenna will go to a calculated position that is
half of SWEEP INCR degrees above, and perpendicular to, the
satellite arc (along the same angle as polarization for the
desired satellite). This position is the “Start” of the search
pattern in the graphic above. Then the antenna will drive
down along the polarization angle SWEEP INCR degrees, step
one Search Increment to the right (parallel to the satellite
arc), search up along the polarization angle SWEEP INCR
degrees, step two Search Increments to the left, search down,
5-11
Sea Tel TVHD Antenna Systems
Dealer Login Pages – LMXP
etc expanding out in the search pattern until Search Limit is reached. When the end of
the search pattern is reached, the LMXP will retarget the antenna to the calculated
Azimuth and Elevation point.
If the desired signal is found (AND network lock is achieved in the tracking receiver) at
this position, or anywhere within the search pattern, the LMXP will terminate search and
go into Tracking mode. If the desired signal is not found the LMXP will wait SEARCH
DELAY, then target the antenna to start point shown in the graphic above and begin the
search pattern again. This cycle will repeat until the desired satellite signal is found or
the operator intervenes.
5.7.2.11.2. Sky Search Pattern
A Sky Search pattern does a hemispheric pattern. Its behavior is different if you have a
gyro compass input or not::
No Gyro - If you do not have a gyro compass, set the gyro type to “no gyro”. When in
this mode, Sky Search drives the antenna to the calculated elevation angle and then
drives azimuth CW 450 degrees, steps elevation up and then drives azimuth CCW 450
degrees and continues to alternately steps elevation up/down and drives azimuth
alternately CW/CCW 450 degrees. Because of this large search area, acquiring the
satellite will take longer than if you have valid heading input. If the end of the search
pattern is reached, the LMXP will retarget the antenna back to the start point shown in
the graphic below.
With Gyro - If you have gyro compass, set the gyro type to the appropriate selection.
When in this mode, Sky Search drives the antenna to the calculated elevation angle and
then drives azimuth CW 360 degrees, steps elevation up and then drives azimuth CCW
360 degrees and continues to alternately steps elevation up/down and drives azimuth
alternately CW/CCW 360 degrees. Because of this large search area, acquiring the
satellite will take less time because you have valid heading input. If the end of the
search pattern is reached, the LMXP will retarget the antenna back to the start point
shown in the graphic below.
If the desired signal is found (AND network lock is achieved) at any position within the
search pattern, the LMXP will terminate search and go into Tracking mode.
If the desired signal is not found within the search pattern the LMXP will wait SEARCH
DELAY seconds and then begin the search pattern again. This cycle will repeat until the
desired satellite signal is found or the operator intervenes.
5.7.2.11.3. Default “Spiral” (Box) Search Pattern
The factory default search pattern in the LMXP is a “Spiral” pattern.
When a search begins;
The antenna will then search up in azimuth one Search
Increment, search up one Search Increment in elevation,
search down two Search Increments in azimuth, search down
two Search Increments in elevation, etc until Search Limit is
reached. When the end of the search pattern is reached, the
LMXP will retarget the antenna to the calculated Azimuth and
Elevation position of the desired satellite (start point).
If the desired signal is found (AND network lock is achieved in
the tracking receiver) at this position, or anywhere within the
search pattern, the LMXP will terminate search and go into Tracking mode. If the
desired signal is not found the LMXP will wait SEARCH DELAY seconds and then begin
the search pattern again. This cycle will repeat until the desired satellite signal is found
or the operator intervenes.

1. If this antenna is the “active”, click “Blocked” and the arbitrator will switch services to
the other antenna. NOTE: If this was the standby antenna the arbitrator will NOT
switch services to this antenna.
2. Click “Unblocked” to return to normal operation of this antenna. NOTE: The arbitrator
will not switch services back to this antenna until the other antenna is blocked.
CAUTION: This is a test mode only, for normal operation, both LMXPs must be “Unblocked”.

verifies the file integrity within the system prior to actual update and should there be any discrepancies,
the upload process cancels and will revert to the last known good configuration and build version. In
addition, should you interconnect a spare TICU or LMXP with the system as a part of a retrofit or repair
procedure, the system will automatically update to the latest version upon power up. This is an automatic
feature that does not require any user intervention.

Quick Start Operation

Sea Tel TVHD Antenna Systems
Quick Start Operation
If your system has been set up correctly, and if the ship has not moved since the system was used last, the system should
automatically acquire the satellite from a cold (power-up) start. Once the satellite has been acquired, the tracking receiver
then should achieve lock and you should be able to use the system.
6.1.
Turn Power ON
To apply power to the antenna system:
1. Energize the LMXP and the antenna pedestal by toggling the power switch on the front panel of the
LMXP to the ON position.
2.
3.
6.2.
Energize all other below decks receivers, distribution and audio/video equipment.
The antenna system will power up, go through its initialization process and then automatically target the
last satellite that had been previously acquired.
If satellite signal is found AND network lock is achieved:
1.
Tracking will take over (front panel Tracking LED will be ON) and automatically peak the antenna position
for highest receive signal level from the satellite.
2. When the system has signal above threshold AND the tracking receiver has
network lock the antenna will continue to track the satellite.
3. Satellite Name (if entered), Tracking indicator, Tracking receiver Lock indicator
and signal level (number value and bar graph) will be displayed in the header of
the LMXP GUI pages.
Upon completion of the above, the system will continue to operate automatically, indefinitely until:
•
AC power to the system is interrupted OR
•
The satellite signal is blocked OR
•
The ship sails into an area of insufficient satellite signal strength/level.
6.3.
If no signal is found:
If the system does NOT automatically find the satellite from a cold start, log into the LMXP and follow the steps
below:
1. The Tracking LED, on the front panel of the LMXP, will flash for a short period of time (Search Delay)
followed by the Search LED coming ON.
2. The antenna will automatically be driven in a search pattern, attempting to relocate the desired satellite.
The bar graph on the upper right will display red bars while the signal value is less than the threshold value
(red bar in the bar graph).
3. Not finding a signal greater than Threshold, the bar graph will stay red and the antenna will reach the end
of the prescribed search pattern.
4. The antenna will retarget and then the cycle (steps 1-3) until the satellite is found, or the operator
intervenes.
5. Log into the LMXP GUI.
6. Access the Configuration - Communication Interfaces page.
7. Find the Latitude, Longitude and Heading displayed values. If they are correct skip to step 10.
8. If the Latitude & Longitude values are not correct, enter the ships Latitude & Longitude position in those
fields.
9. If the Heading value is not correct, enter the correct value in the Heading field.
10. Select the Satellite Search – Auto page.
6-1
Sea Tel TVHD Antenna Systems
Quick Start Operation
11. Verify that the correct satellite is selected. If it is correct skip to step 14.
12. If the selected satellite is not the desired satellite, click the dropdown list and select the satellite you wish
to use.
13. Click Save.
If the desired satellite is still not found:
14. Check for blockage (this is the MOST common cause of not being able to acquire the desired satellite).
15. Check cable connections to assure that a cable has not been disconnected.
If you verify that the antenna is not blocked and all of the connections are good but the system still does NOT
automatically find the satellite, contact your dealer.

Basic Description of the Front Panel Status LEDs
The basic description of the front panel LED states are:
ERROR ON [Solid or Flashing Red OR Solid or Flashing Amber] indicates that one, or more, discrete system
errors have occurred. Refer to Status – Error Code information menu to determine which error(s) have
occurred.
OFF indicates that no errors have occurred
INIT (Initializing) ON
•
(Solid Green) indicates that the Antenna is initializing. Initialization of the antenna will take
approximately two minutes.
•
(Flashing Amber) indicates that a software update in progress, the system (ADE-BDE) is
synchronizing or in service/out of service testing is in progress.
TARGET ON (Solid Green) indicates that the antenna is TARGETING (driving) to the specified Azimuth and/or
Elevation position(s).
SEARCH (Searching) ON (Solid Green) indicates that the LMXP is actively searching for your satellite signal.
OFF indicates that SEARCH is OFF.
TRACK (Tracking) ON (Solid Green) indicates that the LMXP has identified and is actively tracking the desired satellite to
optimize the signal level (AGC).
Blinking indicates that the LMXP is in search delay or that the system is analyzing a satellite signal.
OFF indicates that Tracking is OFF.
6-2
Quick Start Operation
Sea Tel TVHD Antenna Systems
BLOCK ON (Solid Red) indicates that the antenna is within a defined blockage zone (therefore you should not
have satellite signal until the antenna is no longer within the blockage zone).
OFF indicates that the antenna is not within a defined blockage zone). If no blockage zones have been
entered, the antenna could be blocked causing loss of signal.
LINK - (Green LED)
ON (Solid Green) indicates that the LMXP has good communications with the antenna (therefore good
antenna control). This is normal state for system operation.
ON (Solid Red) indicates LOSS of communications with the antenna (therefore, loss of antenna control).
Check the coax connections on the LMXP and in the base of the radome.
STATUS - (Green LED)
ON (Solid Red) indicates that the signal is below threshold (satellite signal is low or lost).
OFF indicates that status is normal.
POWER - (Green LED)
OFF indicates that LMXP Power switch is OFF (No power to the LMXP or the antenna).
ON (Flashing Green) indicates that the LMXP is booting up.

Cables
7.4.1.
Antenna L-Band TVRO IF Coax Cables (Customer Furnished)
A minimum of 5 (75 ohm) coaxial cables are required for your system. At a minimum these cables must
have solid copper center conductors and, single or double, copper braid shielding.
The coaxes must be of adequate conductor cross-sectional surface area for the length of the cable run
and that the loop resistance of the cable run is less than 2.0 ohms. Copper clad iron center conductor
cables should never be used.
The type F male connectors installed on the cables MUST be the correct type so that they mate properly
with the cable you are using.
Due to the dB losses across the length of these coaxes at L-Band, Sea Tel recommends the following 75
ohm coax, or Heliax, cable types (and their equivalent conductor size) for our standard pedestal
installations:
One of these coaxes provides power to the ADE. Be cautious of length of the run, for voltage loss issues,
and assure that the gauge of the conductors in this coax cable is adequate for the current that is
expected to be drawn (plus margin). This cable must be low loop resistance and have a solid coper center
conductor.
