Cable TV Analyzers

The CABLE RANGER is the latest introduction in our CATV analyzer product range. It is a hybrid analyser for DOCSIS and for HFC (optical) networks.

HFC networks use more and more fiber every time. CABLE RANGER includes an optical measurement input allowing field technicians not only to perform optical power measurements but also to do all the RFoG related RF measurements thanks to the built-in optical to RF converter. In this mode optical power measurement is shown together with the rest of the RF measurements. RFoG (Radiofrequency-over-Glass) is used more and more by CATV operators because it allows them to benefit from the advantages of fiber optics to compete with FTTH service providers.

CABLE RANGER is designed to be very easy to use yet offering all measurements required working with today’s complex hybrid fiber and coaxial networks. CABLERANGER operation is easy and it is based in a touch screen graphical menu. A direct access ‘home’ button helps you return to a main menu page no matter what function were you using.

The PROMAX-12 incorporates the measurements for installation, verification and maintenance of reception and distribution systems for FM radio, MATV, CATV and MMDS, including the sub-band (return path).

PROMAX-12 is a QAM analyser that also enables the measurement of DVB-T (COFDM) signals by installing the OP-012-O option.

Now it includes a new function to measures power level measurement over a complete frequency band, very useful for detecting saturation in the input of some broadband demodulators. PROMAX-12 is a multistantard instrument, so it can be used in any network in the world.

Specifications:

FUNCTIONS Level meter, Logger, Scan, Tilt, Spectrum analyser, Transient detector, Cable digital analyser
DIGITAL MEASUREMENTS Channel power, C/N, Bit Error Rate /Pre-BER, Post-BER), MER, DVB-QAM constellation
ANALOGUE MEASUREMENTS HUM, Level, C/N, C/A ratio, CSO-CTB intermodulation
INCLUDED ACCESSORIES Mains Power Adapter, Mains cable, Soft Carrying bag, F/F Connector Adapter, Rubber Shock Protector.
OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES Car lighter adapter, F/BNC connector adapter, F/IEC connector adapter, Hard transport case, F/F RF cable.
COFDM MEASUREMENT OPTION OP-012-O option
