1 SATHUNTER Satellite pointing made easy DVB-S2 DVB-S

2 If you have bought the SATHUNTER, this presentation
will help you to start using your unit. If you have not got it yet, we hope it will help you to take a decision!

3 With the SATHUNTER, aligning a dish to the required satellite becomes
fast and easy Anyone even with small technical knowledge can do the job.

4 Some hightlights Small, light, easy to use and rought.
It works for DVB-S and DVB-S2. Identifies the satellite and reads the service list of the selected transponder. Measures Power, MER, CBER and LBER for fine adjustment. Drives the LNB with voltage and 22 kHz signal. Li+ batteries.

5 Before starting... Check if the satellites / transponders preprogrammed in the SATHUNTER are good for your application. SATHUNTER needs to be programmed before use with transponder information from the satellites you want to work with. Each set of transponder data (frequency, FEC...) will become a test point in the SATHUNTER which you can label, so you identify it easily.

6 Why use preprogrammed satellites?
This is a solution to make the installation and measurements with minimum operation complexity. You can... Set up to 16 satellites. Set for testing the 4 polarities on up to 4 satelites. Set only one point to avoid any possibility of error.

7 Replaceable input connector
The input connector is a frequent point of breakdown in field instruments. Therefore the SATHUNTER comes with a replaceable F/F adapter.

8 Li+ batteries Before starting operation make sure batteries are charged and eventually charge them for a few hours using the AL-101B power charger supplied. The batteries are Li+, so not only battery life is longer but also the charging time is quite short. The unit comes with a power adaptor and a charger for the car lighter.

9 If the preprogrammed configuration is not good for your application, please go to the “modifying configuration” section Click me to go there directly.

10 STEP 1 Detecting a satellite
Switch on by pressing key # for more than a second. Move the dish towards the position where you’d expect to find the satellite you wish to align. As soon as you receive signals from a satellite, the bargraph will show some activity and the acoustic indicator will beep.

11 STEP 1 Detecting a satellite
Move the dish smoothly up, down, left and right to get the maximum bargraph deviation. Display will be also showing additional information: Actual LNB voltage supplied 22 kHz signal On/Off Battery charge level Maxhold of the signal energy reading (bargraph and percentage) Current signal energy reading (bargraph and percentage)

12 STEP 1 Detecting a satellite
There are some of the messages you can get on the display: “LNB SHORT CIRCUIT”. Look for a short circuit in the cable to the LNB, connectors, LNB itself... “LNB NOT DETECTED”. Check connectors and LNB. Check that the cable run is not too long

13 STEP 2 Identifying satellite
Once you have the maximum bargraph deviation, press key The label of the first test point will be displayed (for example TP64). Right after the label the SATHUNTER will display all information. Test point name Orbital position + Network name IF frequency Service list

14 STEP 2 Identifying satellite
Every time you push the key , the next text point will be selected in a cyclic sequence.

15 STEP 3 Optimising the quality
Once you know you are on the right satellite, press key Another bargraph showing MER measurement (both graphically and numerically) will appear together with the CBER and/or LBER measurement (configurable with the software).

STEP 3 Optimising the quality Move the LNB to maximise the bargraph deviation and eventually try very small dish fine tuning. MAXIMUM DEVIATION OPTIMUM CROSS - POLARIZATION

If you wish to work with satellites different to those preprogrammed from origin or wish to change the test points in any way, you should proceed as follows: Get information on the satellites and transponders of your choice. Edit the configuration file accordingly by using the SATHUNTER software supplied and change the programming of the SATHUNTER using the communications cable included as well.

18 Get information... Satellite and transponder information is available through different sources. Several websites offer reliable data which can be used to configure the SATHUNTER.

19 Get information... Enter Lyngsat web site and click on your region in Packages.

20 Get information... Click on the desired satellite:

21 Edit the configuration...
Install the SATHUNTER software supplied on your PC. Connect the included cable to the USB port. Start the SATHUNTER. Run the software SATHUNTER. Select Tools  Detect from the menu.

22 Edit the configuration...
Select Tools  Receive from the menu Software should then take a few seconds to extract the test points which are currently installed on the SATHUNTER.

23 Edit the configuration
Select Edit  Point from the menu. You should then get the screen where you can modify the test points as you need. Select the detection point which you want to edit.

24 Edit the configuration
Enter the IF frequency of the desired transponder Select the LNB voltage Select whether the transponder is DVB-S2 or DVB-S Select ON/OFF for the 22 kHz signal if needed Enter the symbol rate for this transponder Enter a name (4 chars) so that you can identify it when you see it on the SATHUNTER Select the Code rate or leave it in Auto if you don’t know the value

25 Edit the configuration
You should perform the same procedure for every test point you need to charge.

26 Edit the configuration
Select Edit  Config from the menu. You should then get the screen where you can modify the configuration of all points.

27 Edit the configuration
Select the number of test points that you want to be active on the SATHUNTER. If, for instance, you have edited 10 tests points, you should enter “9” as the last detection point.

28 Edit the configuration
Once all changes have been made, you should save the file, either with the same name, thus erasing the original, or with a different name thus keeping the original for future reference. Select File  Save from the menu. You should then get a regular Windows screen where you can name and save the edited file.

29 Edit the configuration
Select Tools  Send from the menu. Software should then take a few seconds to install the new configuration onto the SATHUNTER. Note that this will install the last file that you have been working on and that you have already saved.

30 Edit the configuration
Select File  Exit from the menu. Turn OFF the SATHUNTER and disconnect the cable from the computer. You are ready to work with a newly configured SATHUNTER.
