The SAT 9520 satellite signal level meter measures the strength and quality of satellite signals. It is durably constructed and field-portable. The SAT 9520 is tunable to individual transponder frequencies. Its strong battery is able to power single and multiple LNBs and control multi-switches. The SAT 9520 identifies many of the DBS, Ku, and C-Band satellites. This simplifies the receive portion of two-way broadband and VSAT installations. The SAT 9520 is an excellent alternative to a laptop computer or a spectrum analyzer for locating the correct satellite, especially when used outside in the elements or on a rooftop. The SAT 9520 simultaneously displays signal strength, the familiar IRD signal quality value, bargraphs for signal peaking, carrier-to-noise for optimizing cross-polarization, and bit-error-rate for obtaining maximum rain-fade margin. The SAT 9520 is ideal for satellite installations and troubleshooting L-Band networks.
