Don't search. Find!
The Oyster® V knows exactly where the satellites are positioned – at any time. Tedious full-range scans are no longer necessary. The system swiftly aims itself to the satellite. This technological edge is the result of three interacting components: GPS, 3D compass and inclination sensor. The GPS unit identifies the position, the 3D compass identifies the direction which your vehicle (and the antenna, accordingly) is oriented to, and the inclination sensor exactly determines the vehicle's inclination, causing the antenna to make an adjustment. Especially the effect of the vehicle inclination is often underestimated. Even a few degrees may already affect reception significantly. Much more than the vehicle's difference in elevation between a valley and a mountain top.
Convenience at the touch of a button...
... and the satellite antenna starts the fully automatic search, identifies after a few seconds the satellites and transmits the requested program. Wide reception range and brilliant image definition combined with fully digital satellite aiming ensure the reception of your favourite programes in remote locations such as the Canary Islands or Greece.
Tackling constant change
Unexpected changes in the technical characteristics of satellite signals can be quite annoying, especially when you are traveling across Europe, and all of a sudden everything goes bust. Often, an update is the last resort. Even though our engineers can create an update in a jiffy, it must still be loaded into your system.
Your Oyster® Vis updated online via your smartphone (or, alternatively, via a USB stick).
This is more than just another gadget or gimmick. The update is sent directly to your mobile device and can then be loaded onto to your system. For your Oyster® V, you can download a free app that not only allows you to update your satellite system but also offers many more valuable features. For example, we will notify you immediately whenever we detect a change in the satellite characteristics. You will learn the cause of the malfunction and will receive an update as soon as available. Via the app, your smartphone is connected to the controller of the Oyster® V . Technical problems can usually be diagnosed with the Oyster® app. These data can then be sent to customer services.
Solid as a rock!
The Oyster® V 's external unit weighs only about 11 kg. Despite the weight reduction, it is even more solid than its predecessors. Because stability makes the difference. Not only in terms of the proverbial "longevity of the Oyster® V“, but especially when it comes to flawless operation. Manufacturers trying to cut corners run the risk of producing an instable antenna system that is susceptible to wind. Image interferences are then inevitable. The stability of the Oyster® V is the result of cleverly applied engineering skills and state-of-the-art, high-quality materials like the ones used in motor sports. The single-piece dish arm is made of ultra-light-weight magnesium. And yet, it is extremely rugged and torsionally rigid. The feed arm is made from glass-fibre-reinforced plastic, with carefully calculated internal webs providing ultimate torsional stiffness. In plain words: It won't flex – ever. In addition, this meticulously crafted component provides the space needed for wiring, inclination sensor, compass and GPS sensory system. If fitted with the SKEW option, then this part is also integrated in the feed arm for protection against the elements.
No need to re-ivent the wheel
In tens of thousands of Oyster® systems, the rotary head technology has proven its value. We have refined it for the Oyster® V, but the principle remains unchanged: Only the head rotates while the rest of the antenna body remains fixed. This means: Less weight to move, resulting in reduced energy consumption, less mechanical stress and a smaller space requirement. Also, the pivot point is elevated. So even when covered under a layer of snow, the Oyster® V can move freely.
Oyster® = quality
The combination of simple and solid technology with the latest electronics makes the difference. ten Haaft products contain no consumer-grade components susceptible to failure. We rely on tried-and-tested heavy-duty material. The high standards of the automotive industry are our benchmark. For resistance against vibration, mechanical shock and extreme temperatures, they prescribe extremely strict requirements. We exceed these regularly.
This is why you can take our 3-year manufacturer's warranty for granted.
