XFTP SAT-2150 Satellite Meter Interactive Training
SAT-2150 Satellite Meter About the SAT-2150 Satellite Meter: The SAT-2150 simplifies satellite dish installation and allows precise alignment of the dish. The meter measures digital satellite signal level, bit error rate, and carrier-to-noise ratio to confirm a quality signal.
SAT-2150 Satellite Meter About the SAT-2150 Satellite Meter: The positive signal lock feature prevents the meter from displaying a signal quality level unless the correct satellite has been targeted. The SAT-2150 does not require a connection to a receiver or television to align the satellite dish.
SAT-2150 Satellite Meter About the SAT-2150 Satellite Meter: The SAT-2150 is preconfigured with a list of commonly used satellites in North America. The SAT-2150 displays dish elevation and azimuth settings for each stored satellite configuration. Up to 80 satellite configurations can be stored in the SAT-2150s memory.
SAT-2150 Satellite Meter The Following Functions can be Performed with the SAT-2150: The SAT-2150 calculates the elevation, azimuth, and polarity for the dish for each satellite, based on the dishs latitude and longitude. The SAT-2150 checks the signal level from the selected satellite.
SAT-2150 Satellite Meter The Following Functions can be Performed with the SAT-2150: The features in the SAT-2150 allow for dithering (fine-tuning) of the dish. The SAT-2150 measures the bit error rate of the satellite signal. The carrier-to-noise ratio of the signal is measured. The SAT-2150 allows setup of dishes with multiple LNBs.
SAT-2150 Satellite Meter Elevation, Azimuth, and Polarity Calculations: Enter the latitude and longitude of the installed dishs location into the SAT-2150. Note: Several websites can provide latitude and longitude values for specific street addresses. From the Utility screen, press the FIND key.
SAT-2150 Satellite Meter Elevation, Azimuth, and Polarity Calculations: Use the UP/DOWN keys to select the desired satellite. Press the F4 key to display the Orientation screen.
SAT-2150 Satellite Meter Elevation, Azimuth, and Polarity Calculations: In the Orientation screen, the values displayed will be correct for the azimuth (AZ), elevation (EL), and polarity (PO) for the selected satellite, relative to the location of the dish installation. Note: Record these settings. They will be used in the next step. Press the F4 key to display the Signal screen.
SAT-2150 Satellite Meter Measuring the Signal Level: Adjust the dish to the previously recorded elevation and azimuth values so the displayed signal (S) and quality (Q) levels are at their maximum. The SAT-2150 will display OK on the screen to indicate it has locked onto the signal.
SAT-2150 Satellite Meter Dithering the Satellite Dish: Using the fine-tuning bolts on the dish assembly, adjust the dish in the vertical plane to achieve the best possible signal level (S). Using the fine-tuning bolts on the dish assembly, adjust the dish in the horizontal plane to achieve the best possible signal level (S).
SAT-2150 Satellite Meter Measuring the Bit Error Rate and Carrier-to-Noise Ratio: After fine-tuning the dish, press the F4 key to display the Measurement screen, and the BER and C/N ratio.
SAT-2150 Satellite Meter Setup of Multiple-LNB Dishes: Align the dish to the first target satellite. Press the FIND key to select a second satellite configuration. Use the UP/DOWN keys to select the second target satellite. Press the F4 key to display the Signal screen for the second satellite.
SAT-2150 Satellite Meter Note: Follow the same keystroke procedure outlined in the previous steps to switch between two satellite configurations and their respective signal levels. Adjust the dish as necessary to achieve an acceptable compromise between both satellite signals, while toggling between satellite configurations.
