Outdoor Enclosures: original ODE range & Satcom6


The Satcom6  – our most popular weatherproof enclosure – is specifically designed for use at teleports and ground stations.

  • Accepts up to six ViaLiteHD modules
  • Dual power supplies
  • SNMP remote control
  • LNB powering
  • IP66 and NEMA 4 rated
  • Split gland connector option for pre-terminated cables

A variety of optical and electrical connectors are available, including a heavy-duty configurable connector which adds four analog, digital, RF, earth stud or power connectors (in any combination).


ODE-A4 (for ViaLiteHD)

The original ODE-A enclosure has been superseded by the ODE-A4 range of outdoor enclosures, which includes GPS, VSAT and Quad LNB models. Go to product page.



A larger 12U outdoor enclosure that can hold four 3U 19″ racks.  When used with ViaLiteHD this means up to 52 chassis cards can be accommodated or 104 channels when using the dual channel card.  Alternatively, the extra rack space can be used for other equipment.  The ODE-C enables access to the front and rear of the equipment, even when the enclosure is wall mounted.


ODE-D and ODE-D+

The ODE-D and ODE-D+ are large, free standing outdoor enclosures with 25U of rack space.  The units can accommodate up to 214 ViaLiteHD channels and are typically used to house ViaLite equipment with customer equipment.  The ODE-D+ enclosure has the added benefit of air-conditioning.

The enclosures are sufficiently large enough to replace the need for – and cost of – constructing an outdoor building.

DIN Rail Mounting Kit

A DIN Rail Mounting Kit can be purchased to store Blue OEM modules vertically in existing enclosures/housings and for wall-mounting where a DIN Rail is present (contact us for more details).

The Kit comes complete with bracket, thermal pad and fixings.

It can also be used, if desired, in the ViaLite ODE-D/ODE-D+ enclosures.
