The SLM 1478, the newest member of Sencore’s SLM line of feature-rich RF signal analyzers that test and analyze digital TV/RF formats, is a portable digital TV/RF device that provides in-depth digital signal measurements from 4 megahertz to a full gigahertz.  

To isolate signal issues like interference or noise, Sencore says its SLM 1478 offers signal parameters that include pre/post BER, average power, MER, spectral analysis, noise margin, and constellation for QAM A and B. The unit also offers DOCSIS 3.0 capabilities for complete modem-installation testing and both forward and return path analysis as well as channel bonding.

The SLM 1478 also includes:

>> A LAN port for network connections to facilitate FTP uploading of logged test data to simplify system documentation and record keeping;
>> A USB port for channel plans and log file transfers for instrument cloning.
>> A meter that features easy-to-interpret pass/fail auto-inspect results (user definable), bar graphs, and improved spectral and constellation display resolution for in-depth troubleshooting plus an alphanumeric keypad for direct channel and frequency selection; and
>> An ergonomically designed front panel with easy-to-interpret display icons that greatly simplify setup and navigation.
