The SatKing Promax is a fully automatic satellite dish system that offers similar performance to a traditional roof mounted satellite dish. Rather than use a reflector to bounce the signal back to the LNB amplifier on the front, like a traditional dish, the Promax utilises an array of internal antennas that increase the gain then feed the signal to the internal LNB. This reception method has several benefits over a traditional dish:
Fully automatic in every way, the SatKing Promax satellite system will lock onto the satellite within a couple of minutes. With the press of two buttons the system will deploy and seek the strongest signal by fine tuning itself for maximum signal. The new control box (IDU) features a digital display so just select your satellite (Optus D3/C1) and press OK.
Featuring a twin output LNB, the SatKing Promax motorised satellite antenna is suitable for use with VAST, Foxtel (standard and IQ) as well as Austar (standard and MyStar) boxes.
An added feature of the Promax is built in GPS. The GPS unit not only enhances the search ability but also closes the dish to the home position should you drive off and forget to close it. The motorised dish will automatically retract once the vehicle is travelling above 10Kph (the unit does require 12v or 24v power).
Rugged build quality and steel gearbox and backed with a 3 year Australian warranty. The unit is made in Korea which is well known for producing high quality, high tech products.
The SatKing ProMax comes with detailed instructions for self installation or we can arrange professional installation - please email us and we may be able to suggest a local installer. In Melbourne and on the Sunshine Coast we have recommended installers available so please call. You may wish to have the SatKing ProMax as standard equipment when you order your van, let your dealer know and we can ship direct to the manufacturer or dealer.
Peace of mind, this unit is supported by SatPlus and we can assist with your initial set up and support you may require. We've been in business since 2006 and have a sold reputation for exceptional customer service.
Based on the EIRP (power level) maps from Optus, we have drawn up our own Promax coverage map showing high signal areas and low signal areas. The high signal area may be greater due to favourable weather conditions on the day. These maps are a general guide only and SatPlus will not be held liable or responsible if the Promax does not work in these stated coverage areas.
DARK GREEN - Good Coverage Area - expect to receive all Foxtel and VAST channels with good signal margin.
LIGHT GREEN - Average Coverage Area - expect to receive most Foxtel and VAST channels with reduced signal margin. There are possibly areas within this average coverage zone where reception may not be possible.

dear sir how much does this weigh.thankyou Dave Thomas.
The SatKing Promax weighs 20KG on the roof. It would be best to mount it near the edge of the van for extra strength or over the internal wall of the ensuite (if applicable).
How does the coverage areas of the Promax compare with other auto satellite dishs eg oyster or sphere? Paul
Good question. SatKing have worked with the South Korean manufacturer to fine tune the Promax so that it locks on in some of the worst satellite signal areas in Australia. The worst areas are North Western WA Kimberley region, Kununnurra and inland south of there as well as select areas of Central Australia and Northern QLD. Have a look at the Optus coverage map listed on our website here - https://www.satplus.com.au/collections/roof-mounted-satellite-systems/products/satking-promax-automatic-satellite-dish
Over the years we have sold many automatic systems across three brands and all three have had issues locking on in parts of Australia. The Promax, like the Oyster have the added advantage over the Sphere of being able to be finely tuned in poor signal areas. So, if you are experiencing a lot of picture break up you can enter the manual tuning mode and improve the signal quality. This is a definite advantage. The Promax features GPS for faster signal lock and auto shut down if the van moves over 10 kph so this is a nice feature. Whereas the Oyster and Sphere need to be connected to an ignition source if you want auto shut down should you forget to close the dish and this is not always possible in a caravan.
There can be no doubt though that the Oyster with its large 85cm reflector and the ability to select a location close to you within the menu should enable it to outperform the Promax but this would only apply in these lower signal areas as per the map. In most locations, the Promax will provide exceptional performance and offer reliable service.
An added benefit of the Promax over ALL roof mounted satellite dishes os the wind load. In moderate winds, most traditional systems should be closed whereas the Promax is unaffected.
The Promax is also heavier than traditional systems but less space required too. SatKing have been communicating with a customer who has been travelling in very remote WA and the system has been working well. Areas travelled by customer are below. However, we still are reserved and prefer to state 95% coverage of land mass with low or no coverage in some spots.
Kununurra WA Halls Creek WA Fitzroy Crossing WA Albany WA Eighty Mile Beach WA Various Roadside camps WA Port Headland WA Karratha WA Currently in Carnarvon WA and now travelling to Tom Price and back to the NT. She had all channels in all locations, just one roadside camp that had lots of big trees and the unit would not lock.
