This one, is the right one!

From its last generation TM-8500 available, five years have passed. More than 80,000 units were sold before the last demodulator chip was used out. What did we do to make it so popular? We think it's one word: simple. It's super easy to use.

Now, the improved new generation succeeds to come true, with more practical features, but it is still very very easy to use.

Well-designed Hardware

We have been pursuing the perfect product. Before the final product was finished, three versions had been tried.

We keep the good part, fix the bad part, add the better parts, and make them work well. Every point has its value to make the whole product better.

A good product will take years to plan, and months to design.

LCD Display

TM-8511 still uses segment LCD, which has the best display effect in both the day and the night.At day time, the screen reflects the bright light from the bottom, then let the graph and text on screen looks sharp and clear. While at night time, the light from the back of the screen illuminates the entire screen.
All of the segments of the display are well designed. We make sure the screen can show more valuable information and keep clear and easy to understand. Finally, we got this model, which shows information that is several times more than the previous generation model.

In particular, we added an icon to the screen, named "OK or BACK", which makes a lot of complicated operations easier to understand.

DiSEqC Switch

It's very natural to use: enter by OK key, exit by OK key. Especially, we designed a new icon to mark the state of current setting, if the signal of satellite can pass through a switch.

Both DiSEqC1.0 and DiSEqC1.1 are supported by this model. This feature makes remote testing possible. Whether it's a 4-port switch, 8-port switch or 16 port switch, you can get the right signal freely.

We designed 4 arrows on the screen too, it's quite clear to use this function with the tip of witch.

Turning Motor

TM-8511 can drive the motor for dish to turn to any position.
Press and hold the M key, the screen will show "motor", M for Motor this time. The best design is on the ◄/► key: there are two ways to operate it, but zero cost for users to learn it. When users press ◄/► key for the first time, they will find out the motor is turning while the key is pressed. At the same time, the screen also displays animation. This is the 1st way. Then they will hold the key for much longer next time, to see what happens. The result is: after a beep is heard, the motor will keep turning even after the key is releasd. That's the second way exactly.

The screen of TM-8511 is made up of segments, so we have to find out a special way to make the operating easy to master. Finnaly we did it.

Short circuit protecting

TM-8511 use the best way to implement the protecting function of short circuit. It takes only 5 microseconds from a short circuit is detected to turning off the output power.

At the same time, the software will not only let the buzzer alarm like "Beep beep beep", but also display "LNB error or short circuit" on the screen.

Edit Database

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s

it's a full set of operations for editting. Those functions allow uses control the database in detail.

Auto Sleep

When the meter starts counting down for standby, it will make special alarm like "Beep beep". Users have 10 seconds to cancel it by pressing any key. By default, there are 10 minutes from the last time any key is pressed to the counting down starts. User can set the time to other value by press the key with gear icon, even to disable this function by setting the value to zero. In this case, the screen will show " ∞ " instead of "0".

User can cancel the counting down, adjust the time, disable or enable the function. That's a full set of operations too.

A machine you should not miss....

In the past five years, we have been collecting feedback of TM-8500 from users. With those information, we summarize a lot of idea to improve the new model. We are not trying to put everything into it, but the useful ones, the easy ones.

Finally, we got this one, that's it, TM-8511.
