The MS1200 Signal Level Meter is a high performance instrument designed for cable television technicians. The durable, waterproof MS1200 makes innovative use of a graphics LCD to simplify operation. The LCD backlight makes measurements easier in crawl spaces and behind TVs. The display is easy to see in bright sunlight.
A scan mode allows you to see the levels of all carriers in a spectral display. You can also view level measurements at a single frequency or for a specific channel. When tuned to a channel, the display indicates the levels of the video and audio carriers, and the difference between the carrier levels.
When performing an installation, you can press the Installation Check key to quickly verify that all channels are within limits that you have defined. You can use this feature to determine whether or not a subscriber connection meets FCC or other government requirements.
A special channel plan building mode automatically determines which channels are active on your cable system. Once the channel plan is defined, you can copy it to multiple MS1200s using the built-in serial port. Channel plans can also be created using StealthWare, the Windows™ based data management package for Stealth products, and downloaded to multiple MS1200s.
