Spectrum Monitoring and Interference hunting

The migration to mobile communications is creating unprecedented pressure for more spectrum capacity in a complex and crowded signal environment. Tek’s Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers help you discover and examine sources of interference quickly so you can locate and identify unwanted activity. You can ensure your signal integrity and adherence to compliance standards using the RSA306B, RSA500, or RSA600 for real-time spectrum insights.

Highlights

  • The RSA306B spectrum analyzer's proprietary DPX technology enables precise, real-time measurements packaged in a portable, rugged form factor and easy-to-use software interface.
  • The RSA306B spectrum analyzer covers up to 6.2 GHz, with 40 MHz bandwidth capture

Reduce manufacturing costs and test time with better test flexibility

The USB RSA’s are a great choice for manufacturers looking for greater throughput and product quality, all while controlling testing costs. The RSA 306B, 500, and 600 units offer support for major Internet of Things (IoT) standards in SignalVu-PC software, come with a complete offering of drivers and code examples, and include testing support for IoT technologies such as WiFi and the new Bluetooth 5.0.

Maximize your student’s learning

With our full featured and affordable Real-time Spectrum Analyzers, your students can capture results of experiments, perform analysis, and generate lab reports on their laptops, saving time and optimizing learning opportunities. It’s compact and portable size makes it easy to conduct experiments away from the lab in real world environments. 

EMI/EMC pre-compliance Testing

Save cost and precious time by performing pre-compliance testing in your lab with our Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers. You can use peak detection with a free version of SignalVu-PC. You also get more accurate results with quasi-peak and average detection by purchasing the additional option EMCVu. Learn more about EMI/EMC pre-compliance testing at our application page.
