Ultra-Portable Spectrum Analyzer Supports 6 GHz to 20 GHz

March 18, 2021
With high sensitivity, long battery life, and a compact form factor, this instrument serves the needs of wireless field engineers and technicians.

Field engineers and technicians performing link planning, installation, site acceptance, maintenance, and troubleshooting of wireless networks need reliable and highly portable test instruments to get their jobs done. With coverage of 6 GHz to 20 GHz, SAF Tehnika has expanded its Spectrum Compact family of ultra-portable handheld microwave spectrum analyzers with a model that delivers durability at affordable pricing

The new instrument has high sensitivity of -110 dBm at 30 kHz resolution bandwidth, long battery life of up to 4 hours, and instant-on functionality for quick start-up and operation. It all comes in a rugged, ultra-compact form factor that measures only 135 x 83 x 34 mm (5.31 × 3.27 × 1.34 in.) and weighs 0.57 kg (20.11 oz). It's suited for deployment by mobile carriers, telecommunications professionals, internet service providers (ISPs), and contractors responsible for regulatory and compliance, drone applications, and satellite operation.

Every aspect of the Spectrum Compact family of instruments is designed to address the challenges of field applications. Like other models, the new 6- to 20-GHz handheld spectrum analyzer has a resistive touchscreen for operation with gloves, and high contrast and full display modes for easy readability in bright light environments. Durable thumbscrews for the waveguide adapter connections help the analyzer to withstand harsh environments. Users may save spectrum traces in the onboard 8-GB of memory for offline analysis, investigation, and reporting using the Spectrum Manager PC software.

All of the Spectrum Compact devices are well suited for mobile operators, carriers, and tower installation crews deploying 5G networks, Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs), local government institutions, public-safety departments, and critical network-infrastructure owners. Field engineers and technicians can use the ultra-portable handheld microwave spectrum analyzers to conduct site surveys, radio parameter verification, antenna alignment, interference detection, line-of-sight verification, signal strength mapping, and interference hunting.

SAF Tehnika has developed a virtual demo of Spectrum Compact for viewing.
