Equipped with automatic tracking and goto system controlled by the control software, GS-100 allows you to move the antenna with a continuous and precise tracking. The GS-100 antenna tracking system has 100 Kg load capacity and a very high precision pointing and tracking (encoders read resolution 0,0015°).
It can also be used with the “Ultrasonic Wind Sensor” to park the antenna in stow position (pointing the Zenith) when the wind exceeds 50 Km/h, so the radio telescope moves to the position that offers the lower resistance to the wind and it’s safe.
