Paradigm Interface Module (PIM)

Making Satcom Simple

The Paradigm Interface Module (PIM®) terminal controller has been designed and manufactured by Paradigm to provide a common terminal interface for a range of fixed and quick deploy terminals operating on all major satellite networks. The PIM provides the modem, baseband switching, assisted pointing and setup functions needed for a number of different terminals, presenting the user with a quick and simple terminal setup and pointing process.

      • On-board Pointing Tool
      • C, X, Ku or Ka-Band
      • Easy-to-Use
      • Lightweight
      • Ruggedised IP65
      • Terminal Agnostic

The PIM makes VSAT setup simple for users regardless of the antenna and RF combination. It is available in three models, the desktop Indoor PIM, the Rack Mount PIM and the ruggedised Outdoor PIM which comes with a built-in visual crosshair and audio pointing device. All models are modem and terminal agnostic and work with other compliant antennas, BUC/LNBs and XCVRs.

      • Power over Ethernet
      • DC Power Input and Output
      • Wireless Connectivity

The Outdoor PIM’s very simple and accurate pointing mechanism removes the necessity for bulky auto-acquire motors and electronics to give a much lighter terminal solution. The PIM provides a multitude of services to the end user, from VLAN setup and management to smart auto-selecting AC and DC power interfaces, and also supports Power over Ethernet devices. All Outdoor PIM based terminals can support the use of the PIM Pack. It provides clean and stable power filtering and battery backup to the PIM, taking a wide range of power sources from dirty AC power to sustainable solar and wind generated DC power, supplying uninterrupted PIM terminal operation, regardless of brown-outs or power failure.
