R&S Adds Handheld Microwave Spectrum Analyzers to Spectrum Rider FPH Family

October 17, 2018

Rohde & Schwarz has expanded its successful R&S Spectrum Rider FPH family with three new base models providing frequency ranges from 5 kHz to 6, 13.6 and 26.5 GHz.

New higher frequency models enable the rugged R&S Spectrum Rider FPH to perform a 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 SATCOM links. The instrument will appeal to both field technicians and lab engineers, as it supports everyday measurement tasks in aerospace and defense, mobile network testing and broadcasting, as well as regulatory and education.

The R&S Spectrum Rider FPH was the industry's first handheld spectrum analyzer to offer 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 to 31 GHz.

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. Adding more convenience, the R&S MobileView app for iOS and Android enables wireless remote control of the R&S Spectrum Rider FPH from a mobile device.

The R&S Spectrum Rider FPH is available from Rohde & Schwarz and selected distribution partners.
