Need help planning your receiving system?

In order to provide you with the best possible support in planning your reception system, we have created the following aids for you:

Planning overview brochure
Together with our planning team, the development department and our colleagues from product management and sales, we have created the “Planning Overview” brochure with many planning and connection examples for various configurations. Among other things, you will find numerous examples of individual and community systems (with reception of up to four satellites), systems implemented with a wideband LNB, single-cable systems, IP-over-coax system K-LAN, SAT>IP system or also for optical SAT distribution via fiber optics.

Planungsübersicht für die Empfangswege SAT, BK, IP und optische Sat-Verteilung (Version: 08/2023 – Größe: 23.89 MB) (2248 downloads)

Free SAT planning tool
Our planning tool for SAT systems can be used to configure simple house distributions up to complex community systems for up to four satellite positions. You can use this free tool to configure your system yourself according to your wishes. Link to SAT planning tool

The most important features of our planning tool at a glance:

  • Convenient design of simple & complex SAT reception systems
  • Complete overview of all level values for the entire plant
  • Planning of individual cable lengths & placement of amplifiers
  • Calculation of the respective cable types & packaging units
  • Saving, loading & subsequent editing of a configuration
  • Creation of a level plan (PDF) for the entire plant
  • Creation of a material list (PDF) with all required components
  • Automatic transfer of all articles into the shopping cart of an electrical wholesale store via ELBRIDGE interface

If you do not find what you are looking for in the brochure, if you cannot map your system in the SAT planning tool, if you are planning larger objects or if you want to participate in tenders, our team will be happy to support you in your individual planning. Feeding projects/tenders in GAEB format is also no problem. You can reach the colleagues centrally via the following e-mail address: anlagenplanung@kathrein-ds.com
