DVB-T/T2/C & DVB-S/S2 Meter: WS-6980 (built-in receiver)



The WS-6980 R10837 meter measures satellite DVB-S/DVB-S2 (HD), terrestrial DVB-T/DVB-T2 (HD) and cable DVB-C signals. The functions of the meter are clearly presented on color 7" TFT LCD display. The meter is ideal for setup of every TV and SAT TV antenna system. The applications include positioning of satellite dishes and terrestrial antennas, tuning of filters, adjustment of settings of amplifiers. Thanks to built-in receiver, the user can monitor the currently tested channel. The monitoring of the tested channels and intuitive operation accelerate installation work. An unquestionable advantage of the device is a user-friendly menu, which facilitates the work of people who do not have much experience in this field. In addition, the HDMI input can be used for connecting an external source of signal, and, in turn, the HDMI output can feed the received channel to a TV/monitor screen. The device allows the user to measure such parameters as signal level expressed in dBμV, C/N and MER parameters. The optical input is used for measurements of optical power of a given wavelength. The set of accessories includes AC/DC adapter/charger, car charger, additional cables and connectors.
