Winegard Company’s Special Products Division has answered the need for a robust two-way VSAT satellite communications system designed for the rigorous conditions of the energy and emergency response industries with the new SPA 12PA. With an improved reflector, the SPA 12PA, which will be featured at the show, offers increased stability while remaining durable with heavy-duty features and scalability.

Winegard’s next-generation WX series of auto-aimers offers more elevation and azimuth resolution for better fine peaking, and incorporates a mounting option for an oversized BUC (block up-converter) to achieve higher data rates when necessary. At Satellite 2011, Winegard will feature the WX1200D — Winegard’s flagship auto-deploy system. The WX1200D antenna uses the strongest, most rugged actuators and motors in the industry, allowing for maximum reliability in extreme environments and providing the fastest acquisition times in the market and auto-acquisition of the target satellite.

Also at Satellite 2011, Winegard will display its superior small-footprint auto-deploy system, the SF750A. The SF750A’s modular design is ideal for oil and gas applications, where conserving footprint is necessary and height is not an issue. With a simple, single-button operation system, the SF750A is easy to use and requires no external PC and provides multiple deployment sensors for quick signal acquisition, including a built-in DVB receiver, GPS antenna and compass and tilt sensors.

Winegard’s cutting-edge satellites are fully integrated with a built-in touch screen and are capable of integrating with virtually any service platform in the industry, including modems from iDirect, Hughes, Comtech, Gilat, Viasat and Nera, among others.

“While product performance is critical, customer service is equally as important to our customers,” said Brent Guffey, Special Products director, sales and marketing. “We provide less than a one-week turnaround for repairs in the U.S. with most two-way system replacements available overnight. And our 24/7, toll-free call center provides immediate response to our customers’ critical concerns in the field.”
