Rohde & Schwarz enables mobile measurement of DVB network coverage
The TSM-DVB is available in combination with the R&S ROMES Coverage Measurement Software to provide proactive information about transmitter signal quality.
Rohde & Schwarz has introduced the TSM-DVB DVB-T Diversity Test Receiver, a portable device for mobile measurements of digital networks.
TSM-DVB is now available in combination with the company’s R&S ROMES Coverage Measurement Software to provide information about transmitter signal quality. In addition, coverage and potential error sources can be clearly, quickly and economically displayed on a Windows notebook PC.
The R&S TSM-DVB DVB-T Diversity Test Receiver replaces traditional network coverage measurement methods that require enormous effort and a large number of personnel including the need to meet CCIR guidelines with a 10m high antenna at a test station, and reception tests while the vehicle is moving. The mobile measurement provides quick and reliable measurement values up to speeds of 100km/h.
The test system supports all DVB-T modes including the hierarchical modes across all 6-, 7- or 8MHz bandwidths. The test instrument is equipped with two antenna inputs and two demodulation channels. Due to its power supply of 12V, it can be easily connected to a vehicle at any time.
