Both tilt sensors and gyroscopes can be applied to satellite antennas, but they will be applied to different types. Satellite antennas can be divided into static communication and dynamic communication according to whether they are moving. Part of the static pass can be used with inclination sensors. Gyro is generally used in the movement.
So what is the difference between an inclination sensor and a gyroscope? At present, the tilt sensor is mostly used for static measurement, and its principle is a gravity accelerometer. The gyroscope measures the speed of the rotation angle and can be integrated to get the rotation angle, which has good dynamic performance and poor static state. So they are generally complementary. It is mentioned above that some static communication systems use inclination sensors, because static communication systems can be divided into fixed and portable. After the angle of the fixed satellite antenna
is manually calibrated, there is no need to change the angle frequently, so in order to save costs, businesses will consider whether to use an inclination sensor. Portable satellite antennas can be easily carried and moved at any time. Moving to a new place requires recalibration of the angle, so the inclination sensor is an indispensable part. On-the-fly communication is also divided into vehicle-mounted, ship-mounted, etc. At present, domestic vehicle-mounted satellite antennas can receive signals stably on jittery roads at a speed of 200 kilometers per hour. This is the credit of the gyroscope.
