All the functions you need, also in CATV cable systems

H30D+ is the new portable measurement tool to carry out the installation, monitoring and maintenance of cable networks, obtaining the best results even in DOCSIS 3.1 networks.

The H30D+ field strength meter has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the professional CATV installer, thanks to its advanced specific features for working with QAM and analogue channels. In addition, the equipment also includes measurement of ATSC 1.0/3.0 television standards.

The H30D+ device stands out for its compatibility with the latest generation DOCSIS 3.1 networks, since it includes the ability to perform all the measurements of the OFDM DOCSIS channel.

System Scan

Monitored installation

Scan each existing analogue and digital channel in real time to determine the overall system frequency response. This function leverages the location-based thresholds to clearly show whether the signal levels meet the cable systems’ specifications with green, yellow and red bars. This feature provides an easy-to-understand, real-time view of the system, including the BER and MER values of the selected channel.

Modem Emulation

Building a bridge

This function sets the H30D+ to be used as a DOCSIS modem and to use it to give to another device a connection to the DOCSIS network via the H30D+’s Ethernet port. This feature shows the connection status of the modem as well as the instantaneous speed and the size of the data sent through the modem.

CMTS Synchronization Status

Synchronizing with the headend

Obtain a step-by-step indication of a pass/fail test, as the modem finds, connects, and registers to a headend (CMTS), and also obtains critical parameters in the process. Confirm that the modem first finds the downstream channel and, right after that, the upstream channel. Later obtain the configuration as the DHCP address server, TOD server time, the complete configuration file and the registration information.

Throughput Test


This function measures the upstream and downstream rates of the DOCSIS network. The rate measurements are performed using an FTP server that must be configured by the user (URL, file, get/put, user, password). This feature shows the IP modem within the DOCSIS network and the maximum speed negotiated (DS/ US). When you start the speed test, the speed value is constantly updated.

Services and IPTV Analyzer

IPTV and RF services information

Allows the demodulation and analysis of IPTV streams (both Unicast and Multicast), not only through video display but also by displaying the total bitrate and bitrate for each service. The relevant information for each service is already given: SID, VPID, AID, video profile, bit rate for both audio and video.
In addition, this option completes the RF measurements since all this information by service is analyzed as well for this type of signals.
For IPTV signals, specific protocol measurements (UDP/RTP) are also analyzed, such as UDP format, Media Loss Rate, Lost IP frames.

Wi-Fi Analyzer

All bands (2.4 and 5 GHz)

This functionality allows a full analysis of the Wi-Fi band for the automatic detection of all the networks. Each of them is identified by name, and the power of the signal at the access point is also displayed. Two display modes are provided for the user to choose. The “list” mode provides a list of the detected networks with the associated data and power, while the “map” mode represents them on a dual-axis map: power vs. frequency.

Channel Information

The less the better

Sometimes, taking a quick glance at one channel is all you need. The advanced H30D+ single-channel measurement option automatically detects the channel type, displaying the audio and video levels, A/V and C/N for analogue signals, and power, C/N, and appropriate quality measures for each type of digital signal. All these measures are taken by means of one single button; at that point, all indicators will be activated and display the “Pass/Fail” condition based on the thresholds specified by the user. Easy-to-interpret results, even for junior technicians.

H30DPLUS - Channel Information

Downstream and Upstream Measurements

At a glance

See a summary pass/fail view of up to 34 downstream (32 QAM + 2 OFDM) and 10 upstream channels (8 QAM + 2 OFDM) at once. Select one of the channels and see the critical measurements all on the same screen. Select from one of the factory configured or user created profiles to set the appropriate pass/fail thresholds. Get all the pertinent details at a glance for any given channel including the modulation, symbol rate, frequency, power, MER, and both the pre and post error correction Bit Error Rates.

Tilt Function

Always in balance

Get a quick view of your signal level differences over a specified frequency range, so you can apply attenuation or equalization to adjust them. Take the meter to your farthest extents and see at a glance what carriers’ power levels are out by their red, yellow, and green colors. Any number between 2–12 analog, digital or DOCSIS channels can be measured using the tilt measurement, and you can even select which carriers are your reference points to determine the tilt between any of the channels included in the measurement.

HEVC display on the meter

and also on your mobile device

This functionality supports HEVC H.265 new compression format and allows the display of video signals with a maximum Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080). Information can be displayed both on the meter screen* or on the mobile device (multiscreen mode) as long as your hardware is H.265 compatible (usually a smartphone, tablet or PC).

Voltmeter & Hum

Cover all your bases

Don’t want to worry about bringing a separate volt meter with you…? No problem, the H30D+ will do that too. The H30D+ will also give you a Hum percentage to help you diagnose those ground and power interference problems that may result from a defective power supply or faulty/overloaded power inserters.

Reverse Path Ingress Scan

Maximum, average, peak

Help identify reverse path problems before your customers are affected. Poorly shielded coaxial cable and faulty terminations are important sources of ingress noise which can easily add up in the return due to the large number of subscriber-generated signals that are sent back to the headend. The combined and amplified interference is often responsible for service disruption, so having a good reverse path ingress scan tool is always a must.

IP Speed Test

Double-check connectivity

Need a quick check of your data network at the headend or at a customer’s unit? The H30D+’s IP Speed Test allows you to check your basic network performance parameters, so you don’t need to get your laptop out. This includes your upload and download speed, as well as your ping times and lost packets statistics.

Service Info

Study MPEG details

Do you want to know what program content is on that QAM channel? The H30D+’s Service Info feature will tell you. In addition to the short description of the service, you will get the important parameters including the NIT, PAT, and TSID for the channel, and for the individual service you will get the SID and the PID, encode type, resolution, and bitrate for both the audio and video, all of which greatly help when troubleshooting your encoder configuration.

LT Monitoring

Automatic monitoring of the desired channel

The H30D+ Long Term Monitoring Function allows the automatic monitoring of the selected channel. Once the time interval between two consecutive measurements has been selected, the H30D+ will automatically take all the measurements of the channel selected and store them in memory.
