The Furuno VSAT FV-100 is a state-of-the-art marine satellite Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) system operating in the Ku-band. Comprising a radome-mounted antenna unit with a 1-meter reflector diameter and an optional 19-inch rack assembly, the system houses an antenna communication unit, satellite router, and switching hub for iDirect X5, KVH, or VIASAT. With an optional VoIP switch for iDirect units, seamless onboard communication is ensured. The FV-100 system enables efficient broadband communication through automatic beam switching (ABS) and iDirect support, offering a wide range of applications. It facilitates operational and social purposes, including VPN networks, web browsing, email, VoIP, real-time video transmission, two-way video conferences, onboard monitoring, chart updates, and remote control systems for ships. The system can be connected to a PC to access the Internet, and an additional analog phone enables voice communication via a landline.
One of its key features is the UPS connectivity, allowing the system to operate smoothly even if the main power source on the ship fails. This ensures uninterrupted and reliable communication at all times. The VSAT system boasts a 1.0-meter antenna diameter and supports both basic and transverse polarization, providing optimal signal reception. It operates within the frequency transmission range of 14.00-14.50 GHz (standard) and 13.75-14.50 GHz (extension: optional), with reception from 10.70-12.75 GHz. Its Linear Polarization (Dual-Pol) technology ensures effective signal amplification, with transmission at 41.8 dBi at 14.25 GHz and reception at 40.6 dBi at 12.5 GHz.
