Shipboard Tilt Units

APC’s shipboard tilt units are modular electromechanical systems for lowering and raising dual shipboard communication antennas such as shipboard whip antennas. Featuring heavy duty and lightweight models for single or dual antenna configurations, our tilt units have over 90% commonality of components. These units are designed to withstand loads of 1,000,000 in/lb, and are normally used where green water loads are a major concern.

The electrical controls are located in the pedestal for local operation, while an optional remote control will operate up to three units at a maximum of 1,200 feet away. A manually operated handcrank provides emergency control in the event of electrical failure. Tilt angles may be preset to any angle from vertical through 115, and powered rotation from vertical to 90 horizontal takes only 20 seconds.
