Kathrein MSK 120 - Sat-Meter digital


With the MSK 120 Kathrein offers a compact, portable digital measurement instrument for Sat-IF reception systems. The day-light compatible 5,7" TFT screen is designed to display video for both SD (MPEG-2) and HD (MPEG-4) programmes in suitable high definition. An integrated CI interface is available to allow the decryption of encrypted programmes. The control and selection menu and measurement results are both displayed on the instrument's screen.

The instrument has been specifically designed for field use, integrated in a robust metal housing with front panel control using a completely encapsulated keyboard, and powered by a hi-value lithium-polymer battery. Delivered together with a robust protective case, the MSK 120 is ready for every-day operation.

Logically built up menu structures, with several satellites and many programmes presaved support extremely simple handling.

Designed around a hi-grade spectrum analyser, constellation analysis (MSK 120/CO ex works; MSK 120 retro-fittable through software upgrade MZS 120, order no. 21710040) with DiSEqCTM integrated (incl. SCR single-cable system commands) a wide complement of measurement possibilities, such as level, BER, MER, and much more is possible, making the MSK 120 the premium unit for daily use in installing, tuning, fault search and analysis, and in the aligning of Sat reception and distribution systems.
