April 25, 2015: Anritsu Company has introduced Web Remote Tools for its Spectrum Master MS2720T hand-held spectrum analyser that allows the instruments to be controlled from any web-enabled device, including laptops, tablets, and smart phones, over an Ethernet link. Web Remote Tools gives field technicians greater flexibility when conducting measurements and makes it more time- and cost-efficient to conduct RF spectrum monitoring, as well as test Remote Radio Heads (RRUs) and other inaccessible radio units at 3G and 4G base stations.
Once configured, a field technician’s laptop, tablet, or smart phone can be used to control the Spectrum Master handheld spectrum analyser, download files, or view monitoring results. The easyTest feature of Spectrum Master simplifies complex spectrum monitoring requirements and allows for one-button measurement sequences directly from the web-enabled device. Transferring test results is simplified with Web Remote Tools, as all instrument files, directories and sub-directories can be downloaded as a zip file.
Setup is very quick with Web Remote Tools. Short-range links of up to 300 feet can be created using a pocket Wi-Fi router. Long-range links can be easily established via wired backhaul, as well. Up to five traces per second can be updated using the Spectrum Master fast mode feature, for unprecedented responsiveness.
Multiple Spectrum Master hand-held spectrum analysers can be controlled with one device using Web Remote Tools. Android, iOS, and Linux operating systems are supported. The device must have a current version of either Chrome or Firefox to use Web Remote Tools.
Anritsu’s Spectrum Master hand-held spectrum analysers provide excellent flexibility in field environments for locating, identifying, recording, and solving communication systems problems. Compact models cover 3 GHz, 4 GHz and 6 GHz frequencies, and high-performance analysers go to 43 GHz, offering bench-top quality measurements in dynamic range, sensitivity, and phase noise. With advanced marker and limit line capabilities, the Spectrum Master hand-held analysers can meet a variety of field measurement needs, including spectrum monitoring, interference analysis, RF and microwave measurements, broadcast proofing, or Wi-Fi and wireless network measurements.
