Farnell: real time spectrum analyzers for radio network maintenance and interference hunting
Farnell element14 is now shipping the new RSA500 and RSA600 series Real Time Spectrum Analyzers from Tektronix.
The RSA 500 series offers rugged, portable real time spectrum analysis for interference hunting, spectrum management and network maintenance tasks. When used in conjunction with a tablet running SignalVu-PC software, the RSA500 series is able to solve the toughest interference challenges, as well as supporting spectrum management and network maintenance tasks. As the RSA500 provides higher performance than the RSA306B, this new analyzer now competes with a wider range of conventional portables. The analyzer is ideal for field interference hunting, coverage mapping, surveillance and monitoring and radio network maintenance.
The RSA600 series offers mid-range laboratory spectrum analysis capabilities and is great for design, characterization and EMC work. The RSA600 series has 40 Mhz of standard analysis bandwidth supporting analysis of the latest communications standards up to 802.11n. Real time spectrum analysis also reduces troubleshooting time by finding transient problems that other spectrum analyzers may miss. With higher performance than the RSA306B this new analyzer matches the demands of a broader range of customers and provides an alternative to conventional laboratory instruments at around half the price. This new analyzer is ideal for WLAN/Bluetooth testing, component characterization, cable and antenna test and RF environment record and playback.
