Advanced Satellite Meter AIM 2.0

Optimized for DIRECTV Satellite Services

The Advanced Installation Meter (AIM) was developed in collaboration with DIRECTV to provide a standardized measurement platform for the installation of DIRECTV Satellite Services. The AIM supports ODU alignment for both legacy and SWiM installations. During ODU installation, the AIM’s Extended Installation Verification (EIV) confirms the ODU is properly aligned and signal reception has been maximized for all orbital slots. EIV results are saved by the AIM and are available for inclusion with installation documentation, as required. When system troubleshooting is required, the AIM’s extensive troubleshooting modes will walk the user through the troubleshooting process to quickly identify and isolate system problems.

Designed for Field Conditions

The user interface consists of a backlit LCD optimized to provide visibility under both low light and direct sunlight conditions. The keypad includes navigation and softkeys to ease menu selection and navigation, providing quick access to commonly used measurements and functions. The AIM is protected from environmental and physical damage by a water resistant, reinforced, polycarbonate enclosure, with rubber overmold and a thermal-formed carrying case. Additionally, the LCD has been recessed in the enclosure and is protected by a replaceable LCD lens cover. A form-fitting rubber access door provides both easy access and protection for the USB and charger port connections. A battery compartment access panel provides direct access to the Li-ion battery, making battery replacement easy under field

ODU Alignment

The AIM has been developed to provide a standardized and repeatable method of installing DIRECTV satellite services. The menu-driven system will walk the user through ODU alignment and service verification. Prior to use, the AIM will need to be configured by entering the subscriber’s account number, location (zip code), and ODU hardware. With this information, the AIM will populate the installation screen with the correct azimuth, elevation, and tilt for coarse alignment of the ODU, select the correct data set for service verification, and attach technical data from the installation to the subscriber’s account number.
