Sea Tel launch 4009 MK3 VSAT system

Sea Tel 4009 MK3

Following on from the release of the Sea Tel 4012 Ku band, 8 Watt, 1m antenna with Integrated Marine Antenna (IMA) electronics / software, Sea Tel is now adding the new 4009 MK3 Ku band system with IMA to its range.

The 4009 MK3 is available with a 16 Watt Codan BUC and features the latest Integrated Control Unit (ICU) and Media Exchange Point (MXP) giving users the best pointing accuracy in the market and an easy web interface to the terminal for setup and ongoing antenna control.
