BEACON and SNG, VSAT applications

The field strength meter RANGERNeo 2 includes a brand new spectrum analyser function that makes it easy for technicians working in SNG vans and field VSAT applications to set up their satellite transmission-reception systems.

Although this field strength meter has different no-error satellite identification functions, technicians working with these systems are often requested by the satellite operators to search for the “ Beacon” signal as a mean of satellite identification.

This requires high resolution, high sensitivity and fast sweep times which are all readily available in the field strength meter RANGERNeo 2.
