Agilent Technologies recently introduced the N9342C handheld spectrum analyser (HSA), a powerful and uncomplicated instrument that has been specifically designed for RF technicians and engineers performing installation, maintenance and surveillance of RF systems in the field.
Agilent’s N9342C handheld spectrum analysers offer fast and accurate measurement of RF and microwave equipment and RF environments from 100 kHz to 7 GHz, and are tunable to 9 kHz. RF and microwave equipment measurements include transmitter and component test, receiving path signal monitoring and antenna tuning. RF environment measurements include band clearance, signal coverage and interface hunting.
The handheld spectrum analyser’s Task Planner capability significantly reduces test setup time and enables users to boost their work efficiency, automating routine measurement tasks. Additionally, the N9342C handheld spectrum analyser provides a set of standard, one-button measurements including ACP, OBW and channel power, which help characterise signal quality.
The N9342C handheld spectrum analyser features a set of standard, one-button measurements including ACP, OBW and channel power that help to characterise signal quality. An optimised keypad design allows access to most measurement functions within just two button pushes. A rugged, fanless design makes this handheld spectrum analyser particularly suited to tough field environments, while a three-in-one ergonomic backpack ensures comfort and provides true hands-free operation.
With automatic LCD brightness and keypad backlight control, the spectrum analyser’s screen can be easily viewed during the day or at night. For additional flexibility, N9342C handheld spectrum analysers can be remotely controlled via a USB/LAN connection and free N9342C HSA PC software.
