Auto-Mate offers a number of different automatic Satellite systems. All of which we have had firsthand experience in fitting. So we only recommend the systems we believe are the most effective and suitable for leisure market. Over the years different satellites have been developed to suit different requirements. These include:-
- A conventional style system which consists of a large motorised dish and a protruding LNB arm. Examples of this type of system are the Oyster Vision 85cm, Crystop Autosat 2s and the Kathrein Cap 900. These dishes normally benefit from a large footprint (reception area) that covers all of the UK, France, Germany and most of Spain.
- Flat or Planer type Satellites such as the Oyster Vision Caro, Kathrein Cap 600 and the Crystop Autosat Light FO tend to have a smaller footprint that mainly covers the UK, France and Germany. These systems are more compact, and as the name suggests, have a small flat motorised dish with no LNB arm. This makes the systems less susceptible to wind and have a smaller turning circle. Some of these systems when parked have a height as low as 11cm and a weight of 13kg. Ideal for smaller motorhomes or Caravans with less roof space and boats, where height is an issue.
- Cassegrain satellites are strange looking systems that have been developed to be a good alternative to the conventional style systems, giving almost the same footprint. However, have the compact design with no LNB arm like the flat satellites, making them more weather proof. Examples of these systems are the Crystop LIGHT R and the Oyster Vision Cosmo.
- Dome satellites such as the Camos dome 40cm and the Maxview Dome have taken the leisure industry by storm over the last couple of years. These weatherproof dishes are cheap in comparison to other systems on the market, lightweight and quite aerodynamic.
