iNetVu 1500

The iNetVu® 1500 Drive-Away Antenna is a 1.5m auto-acquire satellite antenna system which can be mounted on the roof of a vehicle for Broadband Internet Access over any configured satellite. The system works seamlessly with the iNetVu® 7000C Controller providing fast satellite acquisition within minutes, anytime anywhere.

  • One-Piece precision mold, offset feed, carbon fibre reflector
  • Heavy duty platform for up to 11kg (25 lbs) RF Electronics (LNB & BUC)
  • Designed to work with the iNetVu® 7000C Controller
  • Works seamlessly with the world’s most popular commercially available satellite modems
  • 3 Axis motorization
  • Supports manual control when required
  • One button, auto-pointing Controller acquires any Ku or C band satellite within 2 minutes
  • Locates satellites using the most advanced satellite acquisition methods
  • Standard 2 year warranty

If you operate in Ku or C band, the 1500 system is easily configured to provide instant access to satellite communications for any application that requires reliable and/or remote connectivity in a rugged environment. Ideally suited for industries such as Oil & Gas Exploration, Military Communications, Disaster Management, SNG, Emergency Communications Backup, Cellular Backhaul and many others.
