New spectrum analysers can be used in both benchtop and portable modes providing more than eight hours battery life in portable mode.
Thurlby Thandar Instruments (TTI) PSA2702 PSA Series II RF Spectrum Analyzers are now available from Saelig. Available in 1.3GHz and 2.7GHz versions, the new instruments are smaller, lighter and have longer battery life than other more expensive handheld RF products, says the company. PSA Series II analyzers incorporate a 4.3-inch backlit TFT colour touch-screen display, with a high capacity rechargeable Li-ion battery to give more than eight hours operation per charge. The PSA Series II PSA1302 has a frequency range of 1MHz to 1300MHz, while the PSA Series II PSA2702 operates up to 2700MHz. Dynamic range is 80dB with a noise floor at -100dBm. Resolution bandwidth is selectable down to 15kHz.
Control of PSA Series II Analyzers is by finger-operated touch-screen soft keys in a hierarchical menu system that gives rapid access to menu functions. All functions can also be operated using just the hard keys.
The PSA Series II offers RF service engineers and wireless product technicians a cost-effective and highly-portable tool, placing a spectrum analyzer in areas that are difficult to access with bench top instruments. Bench-bound engineers can also appreciate the low cost of PSA Series which enables them to justify the purchase of an RF spectrum analyzer for a wide range of tasks, while wireless audio technicians will benefit from instant displays of free audio WiFi channels or problematic interference, says the company.
