57. This example shows how

to quickly perform an automa-

tic transponder search for a

new orbital position. You start

out with turning on the Spaun

Sparos 711. 12 seconds later,

the meter is up and running and

has even completed a self-test.

It shows an information screen

with all installed options.

58. In the main menu you select

the first option, which is called


59. With the Mode option you

then select the signal.

60. Of course it is also possible

here to select a specific modula-

tion or polarisation.

61. Now the search starts. It all

happens extremely fast and the

Spaun Sparos 711 clearly leaves

our reference meters in the dust.

No need to say this automatic

search is literally fully automatic

and does not require any recep-

tion parameters to be keyed in.

62. Spaun has gone the extra

mile to optimise the workflow

with this meter down to the last

detail: As soon as the auto-

matic search is completed the

meter switches to measurement

protocol mode that sequentially

measures all transponders. This

means installers can start the

search and leave the meter to its

own devices for a while.

63. Obviously, the measurement

protocol can be saved either to

the internal memory or onto an

external storage medium. All

measurement results can be

saved as CSV files or bitmap

images. Once again, the Spaun

Sparos 711 does something

unique: No matter how com-

prehensive the table with the

measurement results turns out,

the saved image always comes

with the entire table.

64. Here you can see the

detailed measurement screen

with a locked DVB-S2 transpon-

der. Any reception parameter

can easily be changed simply by

tapping on it, and all measure-

ments are displayed simultane-

ously. The same is true for the

spectrum section that we know

from previous Spaun meters and

that always meets the apprecia-

tion of installers and technici-
