We changed the way measurements are made! With only pressing a key, the instrument measures and decodes the signal. The new US TV EXPLORER II (for North America) continues with this philosophy and hits again with innovating features. At a first glance the instrument unveils an impressive 6,5" screen with 16:9 panoramic format and transflective technology.

The TV EXPLORER range has changed forever the concept of the field strength meter. From now on, meters will be smaller, lighter weight and much more easy to use than in the past. Just press one key and the instrument measures and decodes the signal under test.However, US TV EXPLORER II introduces many new features. It allows measuring of High Definition satellite DVB-S2 signals. It covers Cable TV return path and 1 GHz. It can display the constellation diagram for DVB-S/S2 and QAM. Allows automatic measurements through the DATALOGGER function with a massive 1 GB internal memory.
