Satellite dishes usually operate in C and Ku bands. They receive the broadcast signals transmitted by TV stations and relayed by the various satellites. As the dish antenna is pointing towards sky in order to receive the satellite signals, it is prone to interference. Weather can interfere with the signal, such as snow, ice or heavy to moderate rain. Holroyd Components make shaped heater sets to cover the parabolic dishes to keep them free of ice and snow for sizes up to 6m diameter using single heating elements.
We also offer a stock range of enclosure heaters for protection against frost and condensation in enclosure's containing electronic equipment often used for communication purposes. Our heaters keep them running effectively. Other uses include ATM’s and security/surveillance systems. These heaters are something we have invested heavily in our research and development programme in recent years.
Maintaining temperatures can be critical to keeping computer and data systems running efficiently. Holroyd supply heaters which are placed within the housing of these components and keep the systems working.
Other applications within the communications sector include but are not limited to; military telecoms, mobile telecom and broadcast vans.
