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-
