These versatile generators incorporate leading-edge expertise in TV technology, together with state-of-the-art know-how in electronic instrumentation and test equipment. The family comprises multistandard basic generators for TV, VCR and monitor testing in all the PA L, N TSC and SE CA M standards. In addition, dedicated test signals for all special TV functions can be specified as options, such as teletext TOP/ FLOF, Closed Caption, stereo sound including N ICA M and MTS Stereo/ SA P. Dedicated signals are also available for testing and aligning VCRs, including programmable data signals for PDC and VPS. The basic functionality of the PM 541 0 family generators includes all test patterns and capabilities needed to test and align the total signal paths for video, audio and teletext – be it using baseband signals directly or through an RF carrier. Overall and specific tests are included for picture geometry, for both 4:3 and wide screen 1 6:9 aspect ratios, as well as highvoltage stability, beam current, static and dynamic convergence, picture resolution, color purity and color reproduction, and all vision and sound demodulators. Special test patterns for additional requirements like VCR and 1 00 Hz TV make these today’s most versatile generators in terms of test patterns and functions. The cost-effective, modular

design of these instruments offers the flexibility to select the optimum configuration to match your application requirements, but avoiding the cost of features you do not need. The multistandard, multifunction capability of these instruments, together with the wide range of options, means that there is always a model to match any dedicated set of requirements, whether it is in R&D, manufacturing, quality assurance, installation, service or training. The compact size of these generators provides an unmatched capability for one compact and easily portable instrument to meet a complete set of test requirements. The Fluke PM 541 0 family is well suited for maintenance work by 2


central service workshops that need to have access to all TV and VCR functions. Their portability also makes them ideal for servicing high-end wide screen and projection TV receivers, of which size and weight necessitate on-site field service. On the other hand, the IEEE-488 GPIB-programmable PM 5418TDSI model is perfect for automated production-line testing, where high throughput speed is essential. On the last page of this document, a selection guide is included that gives an overview of the test functionality per model.

specially developed to meet the highly specialized requirements for the checking and alignment of teletext receivers and decoders in PAL B, G and I systems. Both these instruments offer a selection of over ten teletext pages with special contents for decoder testing. The DIDON ANTIOPE teletext signal is also available as standard. Selection of DIDON ANTIOPE or UK Teletext is by a rear-panel switch.

FLO F, TO P and VPT The test facilities of the PM 5415 and PM 5418 teletext versions have been extended by a selection of teletext pages including normal teletext, FLOF RF selection (Full Level One Features), TOP All models with RF output cover (Table Of Pages) and VPT (Video the entire frequency range from Programming by Teletext). FLOF 32 to 900 MHz, including IF and is used in the UK, while TOP is all TV transmission bands, as used in Germany, Switzerland well as all S- and hyperband and Austria, as well as via cable cable TV channels. Selection of distribution systems in the the synthesized RF frequency Netherlands. TOP and FLOF also within these bands is done feature extra country characters. electronically via the keyboard.

PM 5418 TV signal generators, and provides output signals to the S-VHS / Hi-8 VCR or Y/C monitor via a special connector. RGB signals and a SYNC and subcarrier facility are available to meet the rapid advances in computer graphics techniques, for example in the servicing of color video monitors. Color subcarrier and sync signals are supplied as standard (BNC connectors) for PAL and NTSC systems. N ICA M digital sound Specific benefits of the NICAM generators include the ability to select more than 55 digital sound test signals instantly at any time, thereby speeding and simplifying operation. NICAM, now also available in SECAM L, is compatible with the existing PAL types B, G and I terrestrial TV and cable TV standards, and adds two high-quality digital sound channels. Suitable TV sets can receive two mono channels for simultaneous translation of foreign-language programs, stereo signals or transparent transmission of data. The two digital sound channels have selectable lowor high-amplitude signals to test the expander of the TV receiver. Standard 1 kHz tones check the sound channels, and a 3 kHz tone on channel 1 can test the stereo or dual-sound performance of the TV. Three special test signals (Data 1, 2 and 3) are available to check the operation of the demodulator and decoder. An RSSF (Reserve Sound Switching Flag) is high/low selectable to indicate that the analog and digital sound carriers are transmitting different information, or to indicate faults in the digital transmission.


MTS Stereo and SA P (BTSC sound) Generation of BTSC sound signals, Multi-channel Television Sound (MTS), is available in combination with NTSC M and PAL M TV standards. As well as mono and stereo sound, a Secondary Audio Program (SAP) is also available. The various combinations can be selected directly from the front panel. Testmodes 1 to 3, special test signals, are very useful for easy functional testing of the stereo and SAP decoder. The sound signals are digitally generated which ensures high stability, and are available at the RF output or via baseband processing at the precision MPX output.

PDC / VPS data is shown in a 1/6 screen height horizontal bar which can be combined with any test pattern and displayed in six positions, either on- or off-screen. A unique feature of PDC / VPS instruments is onscreen display of codes, and programming of the generator to set codes locally if required.

Closed Caption Closed Caption is used to provide a visual depiction of information simultaneously being provided on the audio portion of a television signal. TV receivers with a screen size of 13" or larger, sold in the U SA after July 1993, have to be equipped with a Closed Caption decoder. The PM 5415 and PM 5418 offer both Caption and Text PD C/VPS test facilities modes in either of two operating PDC and VPS use control channels. The Closed Caption information transmitted by the information is present in line 21 broadcaster, and are used to of the NTSC video signal. The synchronize recording on a VCR –TDS(I) version offers factory with the transmitted program. pre-coded Closed Caption Complete testing of video information with a selection of 8 cassette recorders equipped different types of information. with PDC / VPS under the PAL B, Additionally, memory 9 is an G, H, I, D and N standards is automatic Closed Caption offered. A maximum of 9 coded sequence of memories 1 to 8, so PDC / VPS signals are available. all modes can be tested easily. With PDC, the PIL (date & time), CNI (country & network) PTY I EEE-488 version and PTL are programmable. For use in systems applications, Special signals such as timer the PM 5418TDSI model is control code, recording equipped with an IE E E -488 inhibit/terminate code, interface. All the available TV interruption code and and sound modulation standards continuation code can also be can be selected remotely, and selected. In VPS mode, “bus learn mode” as well as information on date, “identification mode” are transmission time, country included. indication, TV channel, stereo/dual/mono sound and adult/general is present. Special signals such as LE E R code, program interrupt and system status can also be selected.

Every test pattern you need, at the touch of a button Circle on a black background for checking the overall linearity and geometry. The white circle changes automatically to black when used with the white pattern and is useful for checking reflections. In 16:9 Aspect Ratio format, small circles are present in the corners of the screen. Checkerboard pattern of six times eight (4:3) or six times eleven (16:9) columns of squares provides a visual standard for basic picture tube alignments, for example: centering, focus, horizontal and vertical deflection and linearity. Center Cross / Border castellations are ideal for centering TV monitors and TV screens, for checking the deflection linearity and for pincushion correction. White 1 00% with swinging burst is designed for setting white D and for an overall check of purity. Also for beam current adjustment. White D is the correct white, necessary for a natural color reproduction. Grey scale Full-screen linear staircase signal with 8 equal steps from black to white is used to locate faulty linearity of the video amplifier or gray-scale setting. Multiburst contains eight fullscreen vertical bars of definition lines in the frequency ranges 0.8, 1.8, 2.8, 3.0, 3.2, 3.4, 3.8 and 4.8 MHz. This checks the



bandwidth of the video or luminance amplifier in black and white or color TV as well as the resolution of monitors and video recorders. Cross hatch / Center Indication / T op- L eft Indication with either 17 (4:3) or 21 (16:9) vertical and 11 horizontal lines are used for checking and re-aligning dynamic and corner convergence. The advantage is that there is no interlacing which would normally tire the eyes. If interlacing is required this can be achieved by superimposing another pattern such as center cross, circle or dots. Dot pattern is mainly used for static convergence. The screen should contain pure white dots. VCR is a specially-designed test pattern to check the bandwidth, linearity, sensitivity and AG C of the chroma amplifiers in color video recorders. This combined test pattern is divided into 4 horizontal segments: ■ 24 lines of 100% white level. ■ Eight bars of resolution of which 2.8 - 3.0 - 3.2 - 3.4 M Hz are used to align the high-pass filter for a maximum resolution in VCR bandwidth. ■ Eight steps of decreasing linear levels of saturation from 100 to 0% to check the chroma amplifier linearity and color AG C circuitry. ■ A black horizontal bar with a moving white field to check moving pictures on video recorders.

pattern is used for checking color purity. The green pattern provides a purity check for three-in-line tubes. Blue is also available to check color performance. The three complementary colors magenta, yellow and cyan can also be displayed by selection, as can white and black. Combinations with circle and/or center cross are easy to select. Color bar standard bar pattern. The vertical bars are white D, yellow, cyan, green, magenta, red, blue and black. Since they are dependent on the TV system selected, the luminance contents are automatically corrected for each setting. The color bar pattern therefore provides sufficient information for a good overall check of color performance, including checks on burst keying, subcarrier regeneration, RG B amplifiers, the delay color versus B/W signal and saturation. DE M - Pattern. Demodulator is a combined test pattern which, divided into 4 sections, contains information to make on-screens checks and alignments of the color demodulators and subcarrier frequency. F or P AL it is used to check the chroma delay line for amplitude and phase (‘venetian blinds’). F or the N TSC system, the pattern is according to the N TSC requirements and contains 7 color bars, -I and +Q signals and a black and white reference field. T est pattern combinations. Over 100 test pattern combinations can be selected to meet special requirements.

Purity with a choice of the three primary colors is clearly indicated by LEDs. The red 5
