Top rated positioner.  This controller is used to position your C band dish. It takes DiSEqC commands from your satellite receiver and converts it into 36V pulse and sensor to store positions - can store 99 Positions. It can work as a stand alone positioner or it can accept DiSEqC 1.2 commands from a satellite receiver. Controls and displays position. Remote control Included.

The Choice is clear.  The choice is GBOX(Read the review below)

 

Wiring The Actuator (wires not included with actuator):

The actuator line is comprised of five stranded copper wires.

  • Two 12 or 14 gauge stranded wires are used to power the motor and

  • Two color-coded 18 or 22 gauge shielded wires connect to the sensor.

These actuator wires should be connected to the appropriate terminals on the back of the receiver (or a separate actuator power supply).

Like the servo motor wires, the Two shielded motor sensor wires provide pulse, and ground. The vast majority of actuator motors do not require power to be hooked to the sensor. Look inside the actuator housing. If there are only two wires connected to the sensor, then hook up pulse and ground to their respective terminals. IF there are three wires connected to the sensor, and pulse and ground interchangeably to the other two sensor wires, then use 3 wires.

The two large stranded wires connect to the large wire terminals at the actuator motor and to the motor wire "M1" and "M2" terminals on the back of the receiver or actuator controller. Now try to move the dish to the east or west; if the dish moves in the direction opposite to the on intended, reverse the wires connected to the motor wire "M1" and "M2" terminals.

Warranty: 1 year manufacturer's warranty serviced by us if you purchase it from us with our receipt.

E2 Message on Display:

There is only one error message -- E2 message for GBox. E-2 Message means NO PUSLES detected.

Possible causes:
 

  • Re-check the wiring connection from the actuator to the GBox
  • Make sure the actuator is not stopped due to Mechanical Limit.
  • Check if the Reed Switch Sensor in the actuator is broken.
  • Check if the Motor is broken.
  • The Fuse inside the GBox might be broken.

 

Satelliteguys Product Review: Dated 1/18/2008

By Linuxman

I got a GBox V3000 from Sadoun a little over a week ago, and have been testing it since the first day I got it.

I originally had it on a 10' Unimesh dish powered by a Pansat 3500 using a Von Weise VW-24LC actuator. About 4 days ago, I switched it to my 8'3" Birdview dish with a H-H 34:1 gear ratio motor powered and controlled by a Traxis 3500.

In both cases, the GBox has performed up to and exceeded my expectations.

This controller is to put it simply, "AWESOME".

You can read extensively about what I will say next in the "Problem with VBox III Accuracy" starting in Post #41.

The GBox processor is sensitive enough to catch every single pulse emitted by your reed-switch sensor and magnet assembly, and in many cases will double the counts of whatever your former controller was counting. I proved it in the above thread with two different actuators on two different dishes. Somehow, it catches the pulse on each side of the magnet as it goes past the sensor.

The end result is an extremely sensitive and accurate controller for your big dish.

Until I got the GBox in my hot little hands, I thought I already owned two of the best controllers for a big dish in existence, but not any more.

Now I've got to figure a way to scrounge up the money to buy 2 more of these.

Here are the features:

  • Compatible with All DiSEqC 1.2 Receiver
  • Compatible with All Kinds of Actuator and H-H Mount
  • (Reed Switch Sensor)
  • 99 Easily Programmed Position
  • 60 Pre-stored Satellite Names & 30 Free Names at User's Choice
  • 6 Digit LED Display
  • 23 Keys Full Function IR Remote Control Included
  • Fine-tune EAST / WEST Buttons for Better Reception
  • Recall Satellite Positions by 3 Control Buttons on Front Panel
  • Wrong Wiring and Short Circuit Protection
  • Re-synchronizing Function

The unit can be used as a stand-alone controller complete with it's own remote, or can be controlled by any DVB receiver that issues DiSEqC 1.2 commands.

The very second you select the satellite and channel you want, the GBox takes off and starts the dish moving. There is no hesitation, no mis-fires, it just works.

It stops the dish precisely where you programmed it to stop down to the exact count that you gave it. Given the fact that you have twice as many counts to work with, the accuracy of the stopping point is dramatically improved.

The digital display is capable of displaying over 2000 counts, and I believe it will display up to 4000 counts. Read the thread above as to why I think that.

If you would rather see satellite names displayed on the front of the box, the GBox comes with 60 pre-stored names, and 30 that you can program in.

One extremely useful function that ties into the previous one is that for those of us who have a hard time remembering the old satellite names or are using a 4DTV/Analog receiver slaved to or tied to a DVB receiver, those old names can be programmed in to display on the front.

It re-syncs all satellites if the dish is moved or re-tuned after programming, just hit the re-sync button on the remote.

I have reset it to factory default 3 times, and every time it has performed as designed.

I couldn't find anything that I didn't like about this controller, so all there is left to say is this:

"Buy it. Install it. Program it. Love it!"
