Viavi 180 DSP BASE
Trilithic RF Signal Level Meter with Forward Spectrum Analysis (5 to 1250 MHz), Analog & Digital
Viavi 180 DSP BASE Trilithic RF Signal Level Meter is a dependable tool for basic cable installation needs. The 180 DSP signal level meter features a compact rugged design, intuitive color user interface, and an unparalleled selection of digital and analog channel measurements, including DOCSIS 3.1 OFDM signal analysis.
When testing or troubleshooting within analog, digital or mixed analog/digital transmission systems, the 180 DSP is the perfect tool for measuring analog and QAM carrier power levels. Additionally, for QAM carriers (including deep interleave), the 180 DSP provides Hum, Constellation, Equalizer Tap, MER and BER measurement displays. This allows users to quickly analyze 64 and 256 QAM downstream channels for quality verifications or to locate impairments with the meter, all right out of the box.
Viavi 180 DSP BASE performs an extensive set of OFDM signal measurements to enable testing in DOCSIS 3.1 deployments. In addition to average level, peak-to-valley, and in-channel tilt, the meter displays PLC constellation, level, pre/post BER, MER, decoder stress over time, and a summary for the default profile.
With its channel plan scan feature, the 180 DSP displays the frequency response of the entire channel lineup. This measurement displays a color-coded bar graph of each channel or your favorite channels in the active channel plan. The channel plan scan also includes on-screen markers that can be adjusted to perform a tilt measurement.
Viavi 180 DSP BASE comes standard with the ability to display the full return spectrum from 4 to 205 MHz. The spectrum display provides peak measurements, color-coded markers, and delta measurements. This feature also includes adjustable detector modes which are useful for capturing bursty transient noise. The 180 DSP furthermore performs forward spectrum measurements from 5 MHz to 1,250 MHz.
