Professional Satellite Meters

Primesat SF-700 DVB-s2 professional satellite meter.

This meter is ideal for installers, mobile caravan use or DIY. Since it identifies the satellite, set up time is usually under two minutes. Please don't mix this meter up with others you may find on the Internet which look similar. This has been specially prepared for the UK and Europe. This meter has date installed for many satellites including Astra 2 for Sky or freesat, Astra 1, Hotbird (13E), Thor (1W), Hispasat (30W) and many others. Indeed all of the satellites we can see in our sky with a reasonable sized dish are included. If there are changes in the future, satellites can be added or edited using the keypad. To use the meter, you switch on using a proper on-off switch (so no battery drain while off) then select "Sat Setting", then "Sat Name" and "OK".
Select 28.2E Astra 2. At the bottom of the screen are the signal strength and signal quality bar graph meters and a large quality LED display on the meter all ready to start. It could not be easier. After the first use, the meter defaults to the last satellite chosen and so if it is only going to be used for (e.g.) Astra 2 for Sky or freesat, selecting the satellite is not required as it is already there. All you have to do is turn on the meter, press OK twice and it is ready to use. This meter is at a very competitive price. Features - DVB-S and DVB-S2 (SD and HD). Strength, quality, BER and PWR. Audio indication of signal lock. Supports DiSEqC 1.0 and 1.1 and 22KHz tone. LNB short circuit protected. UK power supply / charger 12/18V 300mA. 7.5V 800mA battery. Shock protecting yellow cover. USB port - software upgradeable. Integrated compass, Integrated torch. Cary strap and USB lead included.

Primesat PR-8000 HD professional DVB-s2 satellite meter.

This professional meter uses a large wide HD screen and is very easy to use. Ideal for installers or anyone who wants the best. The meter is DVB and DVB-s2 and so it will even find satellites which are fully HD with no SD transmissions. It uses an HD screen and so the screen will show HD channels as well as SD channels. The TV channels can be sent to an external TV via an HDMI output connection if required. Also included are AV inputs and so, for example if a security camera needed checking, this picture could be checked on the screen of this meter. This is a high quality robust meter which is ideal for the professional installer. Since it is also very easy to use it is also suitable for the DIY user who wants the best. Light grey really looks good! This HD meter with all of these features is at a very competitive price. Full telephone support is available for all of our customers. Our testing - Date - 3rd July 2015 From all of our meter tests, this has to be the easiest meter to use. Hold the power button for 3 seconds until the power light stays on and it boots up. (This is so it does not accidentally poiwer up if you catch the power button.) Fast boot up. A screen appears and you press the "find" button. The meter goes to the satellite you last used (e.g. Astra 2) and is all ready to provide readings (see pictures when you move the dish. To recap, press the power button then the find button - all ready. If you are wanting a different satellite, again press the find button and use the left or right cursor to change the satellite. To access other functions select the menu button and 6 icons appear. (See pictures.) The menus can be used to check the spectrum or show a TV channel (see pictures). Included - HD satellite meter, mains power supply / charger, canvas case with shoulder strap, av connecting lead (phone to phono) , internally padded hard equipment carry case

Primesat SF600 satellite meter.

Identifies satellites. Light - only 306g. Easy to use. DVB-S2 This meter has a built in battery and can be connected direct to an LNB (using the input connector). To find the satellite, no other connections are needed, the meter will find the selected satellite. Even though connection to a satellite receiver is not required, it does have an IF loop through (and output connector) which can connect to a receiver in case the user wants to monitor the picture on a TV set at the same time. Mains / 12 volt charger and USB data connection lead included. This meter is ideal for DIY, mobile caravan use or installers. Since it identifies the satellite, set up time is usually under 2 minutes. Also note this is a DVB-S2 meter which means it will lock onto satellites which only have HD transmissions on them. For example, this meter will find 27.5 West. Most meters will not. A very useful satellite for customers wanting English channels in fringe areas like Spain and Southern Italy. 27.5W is also important for mobile caravan customers with the appropriate receiver in those fringe areas. Please don't mix this meter up with others you may find on the Internet which look similar. These meters are specially built and prepared for the Satellite Superstore and they have our own prescribed dataset installed at the factory. We wanted the meters to be simple to use but also have some useful options. For that reason 3 satellites are pre-programmed. Astra 2 at 28E for the English channels from freesat or Sky, Astra 1 at 19E and Hotbird at 13E. If you are in a caravan and touring a long way from the UK, Astra 2 may be difficult to find and may need a dish too large to carry. With this meter you can switch to Astra 1 or Hotbird and still find some useful channels including "BBC World". To put more than 3 satellites into the meter would have made it more complicated and not so quick and easy to use. 3 satellites seemed like the best balance for the budget / quality meter market. Note - other satellites can be added manually using the buttons on the meter if required. (Similar looking meters found on the internet are usually full of Chinese satellites and may not have been pre-prepared. Or if they have, Astra 2 may be mixed up with all of the many Chinese satellites and that can be confusing. The unwanted satellites cannot be deleted.) There are none of those problems with this Primesat meter. Also note, similar looking meters usually do not have a built in battery. Very cheap meters which do not ID the satellites can take much longer to use and whilst they may be OK for a one off installation, they are not recommended for regular use. An ideal meter for finding the satellite quickly at an excellent and very competitive price.

Also note, very cheap meters which do not ID the satellites can take much longer to use and whilst they may be OK for a one off installation, they are not recommended for regular use. Note - a battery holder power pack and a mains power supply are also included. It is unusual to find this meter with a mains power supply but this useful addition means that if you have no batteries or they are running low on charge, you can power the meter from the mains. Both of these options are better than trying to run it from a satellite receiver's LNB cable as modern low energy receivers (especially Sky receivers) often do not provide enough current to properly power up larger meters. This is an ideal meter for finding the satellite quickly at an excellent and very competitive price. See some useful options below including "fly leads" and adding satellites to this meter. We also sell a similar meter, the SF600, with a built in re-chargeable battery.
