The 2005 ODU AZ/EL assembly works with a plate-type of adjustment, while the 2009 ODU and the VS1100 ODU works with a cam-type adjustment. The Technician will use each version either during installation or during a service call. Therefore, the Technician needs to know how to use all adjustment types:
- Ongoing installations use the 2009 ODU and the VS1100 adjustment
- For current installations and re-adjustment on Service Order repair, the technician may see the 2005 ODU adjustment.
The VS1300 AZ/EL adjusts with a plate type adjustment, found at the front. It has a physical stop so that it cannot be over tightened.

The VS1101 version of AZ/EL adjusts with a cam allowing for horizontal movement and also allows for mounting at mid-pole level hence the inclusion of the back bracket view with this version.
