In 1998, thanks to EUTELSAT-STAB collaboration, the DiSEqC1.2 protocol was developed, which can drive all sat motors directly from the receivers. This system, recognized as a standard by all sat receiver's manufacturers, needs many adjustments to obtain correct installation of the dish (correct pointing to the South, manual research of all satellites, setting of limits, etc). Since 1999, the main aim of STAB research has been to solve all possible problems connected to installation of the motor and to enable users to buy the STAB motor from their retailer and to install it easily everywhere in the world. With the new USALS program we can confirm with certainty the achievement of this aim.
But what is the USALS system (Universal Satellite Automatic Location System)?
It is a calculation system processed by STAB, and given free to all manufacturers of sat receivers or PC cards, which enables the receiver to calculate the position of all satellites in orbit with a precision lower than 1 meter with reference to the place of installation. All this in a completely automatic mode and with no specific technical knowledge required, either during installation or use.
Example of calculation of the satellites position with reference to Rome (Italy) performed by a receiver implemented with USALS program.
On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the USALS STAB research laboratories, to help and simplify the engine installation, has developed an integrated sat-finder in HH100 and HH120 motors. This new standard provides that the models HH100 and HH120 implements a sound system in order to help in pointing the satellite. This system consists of an acoustic device (BEEP) with 4 sound intensity levels: 1st level: you are in the rotor pointing mode 2nd level: the signal of the selected satellite is captured 3rd level: the signal quality is included between 70% and 90% 4th level: the signal quality is up to 90% (it is not always possible to reach this level)
To instal rotors in USALS way, you need to know: latitude, longitude and dish elevation of installation site (you can find the here). With these data and following the instruction manual, everyone can install a STAB rotor system.
All receivers and rotors in accordance with the new standard will have this logo:
