Frequency boost for handheld microwave spectrum analysers

The base models handle frequencies up to 6 GHz, 13.6 GHz and 26.5 GHz, and with corresponding frequency extensions via software upgrades take spectrum analysis capability up to 31 GHz. 

The R&S Spectrum Rider FPH was the industry’s first handheld spectrum analyzer to offer a capacitive touchscreen and a unique frequency upgrade concept via keycodes. Since upgrades require neither downtime nor recalibration, users can upgrade the base models, for example from 26.5 GHz to 31 GHz.

In combination with a number of options, the R&S Spectrum Rider FPH handles diverse applications such as verifying signal transmission over 5G, broadcast, radar and satellite communications links. The instrument is aimed at field technicians and lab engineers alike, as it supports everyday measurement tasks in aerospace and defence, mobile network testing and broadcasting, as well as tasks to be performed by regulatory authorities and tasks in education. 

Weighing 2.5 kg, the R&S Spectrum Rider FPH is ideal for mobile use. Its battery lasts more than six hours, making the instrument capable of working a full day without recharging. The analyzer can be remotely controlled via USB or LAN and the R&S MobileView app for iOS and Android provides wireless remote control of the analyser from a mobile device. 

The R&S Spectrum Rider FPH is available from Rohde & Schwarz and selected distribution partners.
