Intellian Debuted Aptus, a new graphical interface based PC software for monitoring and control of Intellian VSAT antennas. Aptus PC software is compatible with all Intellian VSAT antennas and can also be used on the 3-Axis TVRO system and is connected via the onboard network. Straightforward IP connection over the Internet from anywhere in the world and set-up, coupled with the antenna status reporting helps to increase the performance of the antenna as well as debug the system. There is also an in-built auto-diagnostic function that can connect to the VSAT ACU by serial or USB cable.

The software displays a graphical dashboard that allows logging, recording and fine-tuning of the antenna. Through logging the antenna’s parameters, the user and integrator can monitor the system and see the performance in real-time. This data logging and performance monitoring will also help the integrator to track the status of all antennas operating on their system.

Aptus features a dashboard that provides three main views to monitor and control the antenna; Quick, File and View. The views provide varying levels of information, such as graphical antenna position, set-up data including sensor inputs, satellite information including tracking frequency and LNB setting, graphs illustrating the signal, heading and elevation angles, and a monitor listing all data that is being received by the ACU.

The Quick Menu includes the set-up, restart, reboot, antenna information as well as a save satellite function. Information including antenna details, TX status, signal level as well as GPS and heading information is shown. To ensure the user can save data, the File Menu clearly shows the individual backup, restore and load configuration functions.

The graphical interface contributes to operational up-time by providing icons that show details such as the antenna azimuth and elevation including the visual representation of any blockage zones on board the vessel. When installing an Intellian VSAT antenna, Aptus can also help with the initial set-up and automatically set the appropriate Bow, Cross Level and Elevation offsets.
