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 RSA600 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 RSA600 spectrum analyzer covers up to 7.5 GHz, with 40 MHz bandwidth capture

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.

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.

SignalVu-PC software brings benchtop and field features to the RSA600A

Thumbnail

RSA600A operates with SignalVu-PC, a powerful program that is the basis of Tektronix performance signal analyzers. The software controls the spectrum analyzer acquisition and updates measurement displays continuously.

The base version ships free with the product; add options to configure the software for your application.

Highlights

  • Free base version has 17 signal analysis and real-time spectrum analysis measurements
  • Paid add-on options for more than 15 advanced measurements including WLAN testing, P25 compliance testing, pulse analysis, modulation analysis and more

Instrument controller for USB spectrum analyzers

Thumbnail

For field operations, a complete solution requires a Windows Tablet or laptop for instrument operation, record keeping and communication. Tektronix recommends the Panasonic FZ-G1 tablet computer for controlling the RSA500 series and as a standalone unit.

The Panasonic FZ-G1 tablet computer is sold separately and is available for purchase from Panasonic at their website here, and a variety of third party vendors. Tektronix recommends the FZ-G1 over other tablets because of its performance, portability, and ruggedized form-factor and it has been tested to work with all USB RSA products.

EMI and EMC testing accessories

Tektronix offers a complete set of validated EMI and EMC accessories including antennas, Line Impedance Stabilization Networks and pre-amplifiers for both conducted and radiated tests. All of these accessories are pre-loaded into EMCVu, Tektronix’ new software option for SignalVu. This means loss and gain of accessories are already captured in the software and are taken into account during the measurement. We’ve done this to help speed up setup and help you get more accurate results.
