Can I use any kind of cable in combination with my Inmarsat active/passive antenna?

Only cable kits supplied by Beam will operate correctly with the Inmarsat antennas. Each cable kit has been made to meet the specifications of the antenna and Inmarsat network.

The cable kit not only provides Satellite connectivity but also GPS which is required for the Inmarsat service to function correctly.

In the case of active antennas, then dock/terminal provides power to the antenna as well.

For example, use passive cable kits with the ISD700 and active cable kits with the ISD710 / 715 and 720.

Failure to use the correct Beam cables can damage the antenna, stops the service from performing properly and void warranty.
