How can I measure fiber OPTIC signals

The HW and SW application "HD OPTIC INPUT" available for our models HD PRO and PROTAB STCOI, HD TOUCH STCOI, HD FLASH STCO, HD TAB 9 STCOI and HD TAB 7 STC, allow to perform OPTICAL POWER and OPTICAL ATTENUATION measurements of RF signals directly through the optical input (using the internal optical converter), it also allows service decoding and spectrum display.

Below we listed the procedures to perform POWER AND OPTICAL ATTENUATION MEASUREMENTS:

HOME_MENU_OPTIC HD_PROTAB_OPTIC_WAVELENGHT_1310nm
Touch “OPTIC” from the HOME screen; Touch “WAVELENGTH” and select the
required wavelength, for example "1310nm";
HD_PROTAB_OPTIC_12V HD_PROTAB_OPTIC_000_STORE
Touch “DC@RF” and select, if it is required,
the power supply voltage: for example "12V" (Volt);
Touch “STORE” and store the measured optical
power value (OPTIC REF.): for example "6,07 dBm";
HD_PROTAB_OPTIC_053dBm_STORE
The “OPTIC POWER LOSS” field shows the optical attenuation value
compared to the stored value (Optic REF): for example: "-0,53 dBm"
(OPTIC REF. 6.07dBm less OPTIC POWER 5.54dBm uqual OPTIC POWER LOSS -0.53dBm).

Below we listed the procedures to perform OPTICAL INPUT RF MEASUREMENTs & SPECTRUM:

HD_PROTAB_HOME_RF_IN_OPTICAL HD_Series_SATELLITE_PLAN_SLECTION_MENU_SPECT
Touch “RF IN” and select “OPTICAL” from the volume screen; In SAT mode press the“PLAN ” key,
select the satellite required,
then “SPECT” to visualize the spectrum;
HD_PROTAB_SAT_SPECT_TP_110 HD_Series_SAT_MEAS_TP_110_VL
SAT spectrum; Press the “SAT” or "MEAS" key to carry out the measurements
(depending on the model of instrument used).

IMPORTANT: In OPTIC model it is possible to analyze the spectrum and measure only Vertical/Low band (VL) transponders.
