Satcatcher Digipro T Max


Torna il divertimento
nell’allineare
un’antenna terrestre!
In passato TELE-satellite ha già pubblicato un
certo numero di articoli riguardanti prove di
misuratori per installazione della Satcatcher,
e questa volta prenderemo in considerazione
un modello DVB-T, che copre una modalità
di ricezione veramente interessante. La
televisione digitale terrestre ha guadagnato
un impeto enorme negli anni recenti ed ora
praticamente tutti gli angoli della terra sono
coperti da qualche tipo di segnale digitale
terrestre. Inoltre, la trasmissione terrestre
analogica è diventata una cosa del passato
in molti paesi, o è attualmente sul punto
di essere rimpiazzata dai segnali digitali.
Tutto ciò ha anche molto senso, in
quanto la larghezza di banda richiesta
da un canale analogico singolo può
essere utilizzata per trasmettere da
cinque a sette canali SDTV oppure da
due a tre canali HDTV. Dal momento
che vediamo una crescita continua del
numero di canali terrestri in tutto il
mondo, lo switch-off analogico è qualcosa Nell’era analogica era abba- 06-07/2010

Da INFOSAT
in Thailandia
Un’antenna ROSA
leggera, robusta, facile
da assemblare
Nel numero 06-07/2009 di TELE-satellite abbiamo presentato
il produttore di antenne satellitari INFOSAT della Thailandia.
L’articolo era accompagnato dall’immagine di una grande antenna
realizzata con un reticolo di color rosa, che si trovava anche sulla
copertina della rivista. Era uno degli articoli di questo produttore
che attirava maggiormente l’attenzione. Circa il 5% delle vendite
di antenne di 1,5 m era di colore rosa, in quanto questo colore
veniva preferito delle signore. Al momento quella spiegazione mi
aveva divertito e non potevo prevedere che presto avrei visto
apparire un’antenna cosiffatta nel mio giardino in Romania.

Organizzati per il Futuro


Il Produttore di Ricevitori YINHE
Presenta la sua Fabbrica
Alexander Wiese

Il fabbricante cinese YINHE è uno dei cinque principali produttori


del paese. Sebbene in Cina questa azienda sia molto ben
conosciuta, fuori dai confini nazionali solamente gli addetti ai
lavori conoscono il nome YINHE in quanto all’estero svolge le
funzioni di ODM. In altre parole, gli apparecchi progettati da
YINHE (Progetti Originali) sono commercializzati
da altre aziende, prevalentemente
rivenditori ed emittenti, con un proprio
marchio. YINHE è pertanto solo un
produttore (da qui ODM, Original
Design Manufacturer, Produttore di
Progetti Originali) e per il momento

progetti di YINHE lanciarsi nel

impianti di uno di questi grandi
fabbricanti? TELE-satellite voleva

La Fabbricazione di
un Ricevitore
1) Xu Yuezheng è la Direttrice di Fabbrica.
E’ responsabile tutte le linee produttive di
YINHE

2) Qui vengono assemblati i componenti


dei ricevitori. YINHE ha 10 linee di
assemblaggio con 25 addetti ciascuna. In
1 ogni turno di otto ore vengono assemblati
2000 ricevitori. Il display in testa ad ogni
linea mostra l’obiettivo e il totale raggiunto.

3) Qian Wei Hong è Direttrice


dell’Assemblaggio ed è responsabile di
assegnare gli addetti alle diverse linee.
Ogni addetto può vedere sulla lavagna
bianca a quale linea è stato assegnato.

4) Il primo passaggio sulla linea di

7) La prima prova: l’apparecchio


assemblato è elettronicamente a posto.

8) La copertura viene sistemata sul telaio.

9) Poi si provano le funzioni essenziali; se


tutto funziona si applica un’etichetta.

10) Ora le prove più dettagliate: video,


audio, ricezione e molto altro vengono
verificati singolarmente.

3 7 11) Ciascun apparecchio riceve un numero


di serie e si mettono i manuali utente sul
nastro trasportatore.

12) Passo finale: tutto viene confezionato


insieme e preparato per la spedizione.

13) Huang Jian Feng è responsabile della


camera di invecchiamento. Ci spiega cosa
avviene qui: “I ricevitori sono sottoposti
ad una prova di durata tra i 40 e i 45°C.
Un massimo di 2000 apparecchi alla volta
possono essere ‘invecchiati’ nel nostre
due camere”. Questo garantisce che i
ricevitori funzioneranno anche ad alte
temperature. Gli apparecchi difettosi
vengono rimossi.

Solarsat Antenna
The Solarsat antenna has already been introduced
in the previous issue of TELE-satellite. Since then, it
has undergone intensive long-term testing in order
to establish its practicability for everyday use.
This antenna is designed to make it possible
to align it exactly with a selected satellite in
a very short time and without using measur-
ing equipment. The only aid needed is a
completely natural one, namely the sun.
��������������������������������������������
������������������������������������������������������
horizontally on the dish itself. Depending on the
site location, direction and elevation of the dish and
the time of the day, the crossbars cast a shadow
as a crossing point onto the horizontal measure-
ment scale. In this way the two measurement
points are created on the x and the y-axis, one
for the azimuth and the other for the elevation.
Normally, in order to obtain usable data from such a
set-up, it would be necessary to perform a complex
astronomic calculation. First of all, the position of the
sun based on the time of day and the geographic
position of site of the antenna has to be calculated.
Spherical trigonometry is then used to determine
the exact angle between the sun and the selected
satellite. Then the exact corresponding horizontal
and vertical position of the measurement point
(i.e., the shadow point on the dish) is calculated.
Since a manual calculation of the necessary data
would take hours, not to mention an advanced
course in astronomy, the manufacturer of the
Solarsat antenna has developed the SOS software
(Shadow Operating System), which does the same
work in a split second on any PC. Keying in the
relevant data does not require expert knowledge:
the exact site location is chosen from a global
database and the date and time are something
most people know anyway. The PC delivers the
exact parameters for the x and y axes. They
determine where the shadow point should fall
when adjusting the azimuth and the elevation.
It may sound a bit complex in theory, but if you
really get down to it the whole process takes
only a few minutes, even if you’re an amateur.
