Satlook Micro HD R10740 meter has been designed and manufactured by engineers of Emitor company in Sweden. This company has many years' experience in the production of measuring devices for terrestrial and satellite television systems.
The device has a large number of useful functions but still maintains ease of use. Similarly to many other products, the manufacturer has implemented a multi-function dial (button/knob) which provides quick access to all functions. This feature is of particular importance when the user wants to search the whole satellite band.
The main purpose of the R10740 meter is to help the installer find a chosen satellite (with Easy Find), and then to allow for precise alignment of the dish and LNB(s) by measuring a set of parameters of digital signals from selected transponders. The device can measure satellite signals in DVB-S standard (QPSK modulation) and in DVB-S2 standard (QPSK and 8PSK modulations - the latter is used by transponders broadcasting HD channels).
Satlook Micro HD is equipped with 3'' LCD display with backlit option and contrast adjustment. Two LNB inputs allow to simultaneously measure parameters of signals coming from two LNBs, which is very useful for alignment of dishes with two LNBs that are to be aligned with two satellites. The built-in loudspeaker makes it easy to provisionally find the proper position of the dish "by ear" (beep tone corresponds with the satellite signal strength).
The device can store in its memory up to 100 satellite-transponder combinations. Channel lists can be freely modified and updated with easy-to-use software. The manufacturer continuously supports users through relatively frequent software upgrades that also enhance performance of the meter.
The menu is available in: English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Polish, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.

Description of key features of Satlook Micro HD meter

Easy Find mode

Use of EasyFind mode is an easy way to point the dish at the desired satellite. The device allows the user to define custom profiles (up to five profiles, each containing up to six satellites or transponders). This feature is also very useful for installers building multiswitches systems - they can define separate profiles for each polarization-band pair. Another application is to measure parameters of signals from transponders broadcasting HD channels.
Auto scanning of all available transponders
Automatic satellite scan allows to find all transponders and distinguish broadcasting standards (DVB-S or DVB-S2). This function is available for selected satellites: Hotbird 13E, Sirius 4.8E, Thor 0.8W, Astra 28.2E, Astra 23.5E, Astra 19E.

Digital mode

The instrument can measure DVB-S and DVB-S2 signals modulated in QPSK or 8PSK formats. Selection of the transponder may be made by the use of previously prepared lists, or manually using the dial. In addition, it is possible to automatically scan the entire satellite bandwidth in order to find any other active transponders and measure their parameters.
Available measurements:
  • SIG - power level of the signal at the current frequency
  • SNR - Signal to Noise ratio of the locked signal
  • BER - Bit Error Ratio
  • MER - Modulation Error Ratio
  • constellation diagram

Spectrum mode

The spectrum mode provides information on signal power depending on its frequency. The analysis of the characteristic helps to diagnose potential sources of interference in the system. Large display and function dial make the spectral analysis an easy task.
The meter is equipped with a backlit LCD display so the measurements can be performed even in adverse lighting conditions.
X Polarity
This useful function provides a visual reference of the signal level of the vertical and horizontal polarizations. It can be used to adjust the LNB skew for maximum isolation. To ensure that the comparison applies to the right transponder, the function should be used along with spectrum analysis.
