2 Product Description
The smartmeter T10 is a compact digital meter used to check signals and
locate errors on aerial systems, to easily and quickly align outdoor DVB-T aerials and to identify the optimum location for DVB-T room aerials.
The smartmeter T10 gives several measured values for the selected station, e.g. signal strength and signal quality as numerical values (in %) and as
bar graphs, carrier-to-noise ratio (C/N) and bit error rate (BER). Additionally,
the user can check the TV picture quality on the 8.9 cm-wide high-resolution
LCD display.

3 General Safety Notes
3.1 Intended Use
The meter is intended for measuring signals on digital aerials and aerial systems. It is intended for this purpose only and must not be used for other purposes. Please use the accessories only for the purposes described in this user
manual.
Any use other than the intended use is improper and can result in material
damage or even bodily injury.
We assume no liability for any damages or injuries resulting from improper use
of the device.

General Safety Notes
3.2 Hazards from Improper Use
 Make sure the meter and especially the power
plug/charger are always kept dry.
 Do not expose the meter to temperatures below 0 °C.
 Connect the power plug/charger only to 100-240 V AC,
50/60 Hz.
 Charge the meter only with the supplied power
plug/charger.
 During electrical storms, disconnect the meter from the
aerial and from the power supply.
CAUTION
 Do not put heavy objects onto the meter.
 Avoid mechanical influences that can damage e.g. the
LCD display or the housing of the meter.
 Do not bend or crimp the cables.
 Do not start to use the meter if you can see signs of damage or if you can hear loose parts inside the device.
Danger of electrical shock from high voltage
Damages on the housing of the power plug/charger or an
improperly repaired power plug/charger can expose the user to mains voltage.
 Do not open the supplied power plug/charger.
WARNING
 Have the power/plug charger repaired by qualified personnel only.
Taking the device from cold into warm temperatures can
lead to condensation forming inside the device.
 Do not connect the device instantly. Leave it switched off
for a few hours.
3.3 Safety of People
When you install and align the aerial, make sure that people cannot be injured
by falling objects, e.g. tools or parts of the aerial.
52
smartmeter T10
General Safety Notes
When working on pitched roofs or close to roof edges, use a safety rope and
secure yourself according to professional practice.
3.4 Lithium Ion Battery
The smartmeter T10 is provided with a lithium ion battery. Please observe
the following safety notes for the battery:
Fire and explosion hazard
Any kind of heat (from inside or outside) can trigger uncontrollable chain reactions inside the battery.
WARNING
 Do not store or use the battery in temperatures above
40 °C.
 Never connect the two poles (+ and -).
 Never expose the battery to high temperatures, e.g. close
to stoves or cookers or other hot objects.
WARNING
 Charge the battery only with the supplied power
plug/charger.
Risk of injury
Damages on and improper use of the battery can lead to
fumes leaking from the battery. When inhaled, these fumes
can irritate the respiratory tracts.
 Avoid any damaging of the battery.
CAUTION
 If fumes leak from the battery, open the window and seek
medical advice if you experience health problems that may
result from inhaling battery fumes.
Damages to other objects
Defective batteries can leak and spill battery liquid onto
close-by objects.
 Check the objects affected.
CAUTION
smartmeter T10
 Clean or, if necessary, replace the objects affected.
