Explorer 2 is the new generation of Full Motion Satellite TV Antennas, for watching TV with moving and parked vehicle.
• Increased performance thanks to the new bigger parabolic dish (+55%)*
• New elliptic feed-horn to avoid spillover (H.P.F.)
• Gear drive on Azimut axis
• New low attenuation radome design
Glomex has developed Explorer 2 (S500MS2), the new high performance satellite TV antenna to watch TV with moving and parked vehicle. Explorer2 has exceptional performances with every weather conditions thanks to a bigger parabolic dish (+55%)* and the innovative elliptic feed-horn to avoid spill-over (H.P.F.), coupled with a high gain and a low noise factor LNB.
Explorer 2 is also designed according to the offset technology (the focus point is outside the parabolic area), so that the LNB is supported by an arm which does not cast any shadow onto the dish for the best performances. Explorer 2 provided with new-generation electronic gyroscopes, which can compensate any kind of vehicle movement, thus allowing you to watch TV programmes with no interruption also with moving vehicle.
As the other Glomex satellite TV antennas, Explorer 2 is very easy to install and to use thanks to the very simple control unit (with two pre-loaded satellites and sleep function). Moreover, Glomex antennas may be updated by anyone by means of the SD card reader (memory card), integrated in the control unit, by downloading the software for free from the site www.glomexmobile.com.
* Explorer 2 (S500MS2) has a parabolic dish 55% bigger than Explorer S460M for greater performances in receiving the satellite TV signal.
