Handheld microwave spectrum analyzers added to R&S Spectrum Rider FPH family

The Rohde & Schwarz spectrum rider series of spectrum analyzers has provided a series of rugged analyzers for use in the field as well as the laboratory. The Spectrum Rider spectrum analyzers have provided the rugged construction needed for many applications, allowing them to be used in areas where other analyzers could not operate.

Now, Rohde & Schwarz has expanded its R&S Spectrum Rider FPH family with three new base models providing frequency ranges from 5 kHz to 6 GHz, 13.6 GHz and 26.5 GHz. The R&S Spectrum Rider FPH provides a capacitive touchscreen and a unique frequency upgrade concept via keycodes. Since upgrades require neither downtime nor recalibration, users can effortlessly upgrade their base models, e.g. from 26.5 GHz to 31 GHz. This is a particularly attractive option because equipment downtime can have a knock-on effect costing a company much more than the basic cost of the analyzer downtime.

New higher-frequency models enable the rugged R&S Spectrum Rider FPH to perform a vast range of measurement tasks in the field and lab. In combination with a number of useful options, the R&S Spectrum Rider FPH is a handy tool for diverse applications, such as verifying signal transmission over 5G, broadcast, radar and satellite communications links. The instrument will appeal to 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 just 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. For even more convenience, the R&S MobileView app for iOS and Android provides wireless remote control of the R&S Spectrum Rider FPH from a mobile device.
