Handheld analyser detects hidden signals across RF spectrum
Suitable for mobile networks, IoT, machine to machine (M2M) and car to car (C2C) communications, the SignalShark, is a real-time, handheld analyser from Narda.
It was developed to meet the needs of the industry where more and more devices have to share the available frequency ranges. It can be used to make a wideband measurement of an entire frequency range, detect hidden signals, or capture very short impulses, or localise interference signals.
The SignalShark can make powerful, real-time measurements with a real-time bandwidth of 40MHz. The handheld design will not only help accelerate the development of mobile technologies within the industry, it will also assist mobile service providers and authorities to ensure interference free networks, say the company, and support regulators in providing protection from illegal transmitters and hidden signals.
It has a 10.4inch touchscreen and interface for intuitive operation both beginners and experts alike. It covers a frequency range of 9.0kHz to 8.0GHz.
The two Li-ion batteries can be hot swapped during operation, for operation for long periods in mobile applications. The robust design conforms to MIL standards, for use in difficult environmental conditions.
A range of accessories includes manual DF antennae, an adapter for third-party antennae, fully automatic. Direction-finding antennae, a fixing kit for vehicle mounting of DF antennae, and software for configuration and remote control by computer.
