Decimator D4 Highlights
Calian SED’s new generation of Decimator Spectrum Analyzers is the Decimator D4.
The D4’s enhanced functionality makes it ideal for monitoring RF feeds & carriers in satellite, cable and terrestrial networks.
Decimator D4 highlights include an increased frequency range, DVB-S/S2/S2X signal digital demodulation with constellation display, signal analysis, advanced carrier monitoring and more.
Multiple Form Factors
Decimator D4 is available in 3 form factors including:
- Multi-port (4/8 port) - ideal for monitoring multiple feeds and carriers.
- PCIe card - great for integration into small spaces.
- Portable - conveniently transports in a standard laptop case.
The Remote Management Protocol allows the D4 to be integrated into your network, OEM product, satcom terminal, or RF monitoring/measurement system.
DVB-S/S2/S2X Demodulation & Signal Analysis
The signal analysis engine demodulates and decodes a MPEG transport stream based DVB-S/S2/S2X signal and provides signal characteristics, modulation accuracy, power measurements and a constellation display.
Programmable Alarms via Email & SNMP
For operators who have critical measurements to monitor, Decimator D4 offers programmable email & SNMP alarms that can be set up to notify multiple people immediately if a signal is out of pre-set thresholds.
Built-In Carrier Monitoring Application
Decimator D4 includes a powerful built-in Carrier Monitoring function, it provides notification via email or SNMP of carrier measurements that exceed user-defined limits. It's ideal for individual monitoring of unattended carriers in case of rain fade, transponder compression or equipment failure.
API Integration with Third Party NMS's
For customers with third party Network Management Systems (NMS’s), Decimator provides a powerful API specification to ensure a seamless integration.
Built-In Cross-pol Application
Decimator’s built-in Cross-pol isolation measurement function allows operators to display both Co-pol and Cross-pol signals simultaneously, along with the isolation value.
Multi-User Support (up to 10 concurrent users)
Up to 10 concurrent remote users can connect to the Decimator D4 and perform ad-hoc measurements. A separate independent connection from your Network Management System (NMS) can also be performing background measurements.
Built-into Decimator D4, Waterfall Display shows a heat map over time of the trace power values. All the current settings from the Spectrum view are loaded into the Waterfall view, such as center frequency, span and RBW. for easy configuration. This display makes it easy to see signal variation over time with a wide frequency range. Intermittent interference signals are easily spotted on the waterfall display.
Advanced Spectrum Monitoring with Spectator
The Spectator software add-on license offers advanced spectrum monitoring capabilities for Decimator D4. View up to 100 carriers at a glance in a single window; zoom into a specific carrier to playback individual carrier traces, view trend plots and more.
Advanced Signal Monitoring with Detector
The Detector software add-on license allows users to display multiple signal constellation displays on a single screen. With Detector, users can monitor multiple (up to 100) carriers at a time for viewing demodulated signal characteristics, including historical view. The Detector display can be configured to monitor only signals from carriers of interest or to view only carriers that have alarm conditions.
