Explorer: one key and go!

TV Explorer - EXPLORER key

When the “explorer”' key is pressed for a few seconds, a new spectrum exploration session begins. Unlike any other meter currently on the market, the EXPLORER makes a dynamic exploration of the spectrum, detecting all the channels in the swept band. This applies to the terrestrial and satellite television bands.

This new measurement concept sets a radical change in the way to understand and to use the meter. The field strength meter is no longer a passive unit, that only measure the channels. It is the field strength meter on its own that begins by locating all the channels available in the band.

The EXPLORER detects all the channels in the band with no need for any previous details such as, the number of channels available, the type of signals transmitted or their characteristics. The EXPLORER is then able to determinate the nature of the signal (analogue or digital) and the channel bandwidths. It can also automatically identify digital channel shifts that the instrument will display.

TV Explorer - SAVE AS function

With the data collected after each exploration, it creates a register that contains tables of channels that can be independent for each area or system. Each of these tables can be saved with a different name.

At any time, the stored sessions can be retrieved and the pattern used for a new sweep that will then be very fast. This feature can be very useful, for instance in countries with a MFN network.
