Anritsu Company introduces Field Master Handheld Spectrum Analyzer for general-purpose RF testing applications
Anritsu’s Field Master MS2070A handheld spectrum analysers provide the performance and field-proven durable platform of Anritsu’s Field Master family at an economical price.
Providing necessary features and performance up to 3GHz, the MS2070A conducts reliable and accurate RF measurements in a variety of general-purpose field, lab and manufacturing environments.
With a dynamic range of 105dB at 2.4GHz, typical DANL with a built-in optional preamplifier of -167dBm, coupled with a Third Order Intercept (TOI) of +11 dBm, and typical level accuracy of ±0.5dB, it enables a full range of signals to be analysed by the handheld spectrum analyser.
The MS2070A is designed for standard swept spectrum analysis up to 3GHz. It features sweep speeds of up to 32GHz/s in common low noise configurations. A power and adjacent channel power (ACP) are standard.
Bandwidth (RBW) is 10Hz to 5MHz for accurate measurements of power over time. Spectrograms are also standard for accurate detection of intermittent interferers.
As many as six traces can be set simultaneously with different detectors. Averaging can be applied to each, as well. Up to 12 markers are provided, so signals of interest can be highlighted and monitored how they vary over time, relative to themselves and other signals. Alerts for new interfering or lost signals are generated automatically. For long-term spectrum monitoring applications, the MS2070A has upper/lower, envelope, and alarm limits standard.
A ruggedised battery-powered instrument, the Field Master MS2070A has IP52 environmental protection when it is contained in the supplied soft carry case. A 5W RF input damage level protects the instrument from accidental overpower.
The handheld spectrum analyser also has a durable IK08-rated 10-inch display with 1280 x 800 resolution that displays measurement results in large and clear formats.
Common functions are always accessible and side menus collapse to maximise graphical results.
The MS2070A measures 290 x 212 x 96mm and weighs 3.8kg. Its compact size and light weight make it easy to transport to remote sites.
Ethernet and USBTMC interfaces are standard. A Wi- Fi 802.11b/g/a/n interface is available as an option to connect to wireless routers for common applications, including downloading digital maps and automatic software updates.
The Field Master MS2070A can be used for a variety of field applications. It can conduct basic transmitter testing, as well as interference hunting. Cellular network operators can configure the MS2070A with a PIM stick for PIM hunting. In lab and manufacturing environments in which portability and space are at a premium, the MS2070A can be used for standard RF measurements.
