Technology for the professional: TV analyzer (Combo measuring receiver) AMA 310 Basic.

The new AMA 310 Basic: classic measurement technology with unmatched precision and efficiency. No one is easier to operate, no one makes work easier, even with very complex error analyzes. It is fully equipped for all RF measurements and DOCSIS 3.1 measurement modules can be ordered as options. Standard equipment includes a UHD decoder for displaying ultra-high-resolution image content and, of course, an extended CATV frequency range up to 1,214 MHz.

Also the requirement for the documentation of systems, whether tabular series in .xlm format, whether screenshots of errors or records of long-term measurements … can be easily met with him.

The years of experience and the consistent further development of the AMA 310 concept from KWS Electronic have created a measuring device that is just as unbeatable in terms of features and precision on the market as it is unmatched: whether DOCSIS 3.0 or 3.1, DVB-C or Ultra-HD ,

The AMA 310 Basic is the standard against which others have to measure.

KWS Electronic AMA 310 Basic: Quality for professionals

The quality for the professional.

Because of its optimum features and its easy handling, this measuring receiver is appreciated by all users … and in detail the difference lies: Fast calculation and operating processes, high-resolution image and graphic representations characterize the AMA 310. Useful copy and save functions help you to troubleshoot and document assets.

MPEG-H (HEVC)/UHD decoder.

UHD TV is increasingly gaining ground. As with the transition from SD-TV to HD-TV, more powerful compression techniques are used. With the new MPEG-H (HEVC)/UHD decoder ultra-high-resolution image content can be displayed.

With this decoder, the image display of all DVB-T2 content is possible. The HEVC standard used in Germany is a further development of the previous standard (MPEG-4). The transmission of Full HD programs via DVB-T2 (Germany) is one of the first distribution channels in which HEVC is used throughout the country in regular operation.

Measuring with results.

The modern housing concept and future-oriented battery management make the measuring receiver even more ergonomic. Despite high component integration, all prescribed EMC guidelines are complied with. For this reason, it is virtually impossible for KWS measuring devices to interfere with each other and thus display falsified measuring results.

CATV frequency range up to 1,214 MHz.

More and more cable network operators are converting their systems to 1 GHz bandwidth. The picture shows a spectrum in the frequency range 45 to 1,214 MHz.

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) measurement

Since May 2009, the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) has been testing cable networks for compliance with the maximum permissible limits of interference field strengths. This check is based on legal requirements (SchuTSEV) in order to protect safety-relevant radio frequencies against interference.

Measurement technology for professionals: TV analyzer AMA 310 Complete D3.0.

The new AMA 310 Complete D3.0: classic measurement technology in unrivaled Rich equipment and efficiency. No test receiver is easier to use, no one makes working easier, even with very complex error analyzes. It is fully equipped for all RF measurements and DOCSIS 3.1 measurement modules can be ordered as options.

In addition to the identical RF measurement branches, optical signals can also be measured and processed, regardless of whether the device is connected to a SAT system or a CATV network.

Whether with large-scale satellite systems or CATV networks, the optical signal transport is becoming increasingly important: The immense advantage of this technology is that long distances energy-saving and potential-free managed. The transmission is different, but the procedures remain the same; Do not miss out on familiar procedures—that is the key factor for the AMA 310 Complete D3.0. Everyone who works with this device benefits from a perfect combination of conventional and well-known RF measurements and the added accuracy of error analysis by injecting optical signals.

Great problems often cause the optical connections. Even a slight contamination of plugs or fibers can lead to incorrect measurements. The optical device connection of the AMA 310 is optimally protected against contamination by a mechanical shutter.
