Anritsu  introduces the MS272xC Spectrum Master series of handheld spectrum analysers.  

These handheld spectrum analysers provide one of the broadest frequency ranges ever provided with frequency coverage up to 43 GHz in an instrument that weighs less than 4kg.  

The MS272xC series of handheld spectrum analysers is also designed with an assortment of applications to test the RF physical layer, making it easier than ever for field technicians, monitoring agencies as well as engineers to monitor over-the-air signals, locate interferers and detect hidden transmitters.  

Five models with high-end frequency coverage of 9 GHz, 13 GHz, 20 GHz, 32 GHz and 43 GHz are available in the new family of handheld spectrum analysers.  

The MS272xC Spectrum Master is superior to existing handheld and benchtop spectrum analysers. It eliminates the need to carry heavy benchtop spectrum analysers into the field to measure signals above 20 GHz, such as those used in microwave backhaul applications.  

To further lighten the load, the MS272xC Spectrum Master is integrated with a spectrum analyser, and can be ordered with a channel scanner and interference analyser to conduct all common field measurements, eliminating the need for multiple instruments.  

A number of 3G/4G options can be easily incorporated into the handheld spectrum analysers to measure LTE, HSPA+, W-CDMA, CDMA/EV-DO, GSM/EDGE, TD-SCDMA/HSDPA, and WiMAX signals.  

Users can monitor and measure the spectrum quickly as the MS2726C Spectrum Master has a fast sweep time of 27 seconds for a 43 GHz span with a 30 kHz RBW.  

Designed with a broadband preamplifier, the handheld spectrum analysers have high sensitivity of -160 dBm at 1 GHz and -147 dBm at 40 GHz to detect small signals. An intuitive menu-driven screen makes it easy to conduct all measurements.  

Powerful Analysis Tools  

An analysis package and Anritsu’s Master Software Tools provide users with the capability to conduct detailed evaluation of measurement data.  

Interference sources can be easily identified using built-in reporting tools, mapping, folder spectrograms and 3D spectrograms. These tools eliminate the need for more expensive, larger and heavier benchtop instruments or third-party spectrum monitoring software.  

Field Tough Design  

The field-proven design of the Spectrum Master incorporates a rugged housing that can withstand day-to-day operations associated with field use while the lightweight structure makes it easy to carry the MS272xC analyser up towers and other demanding environments.  

Features also include:

  • Field replaceable long life battery and wide operating temperature of -10°C to 55°C
  • Large daylight viewable display that makes it easy for users to view results in any environment
  • Display modes such as a red night vision mode, a black and white mode as well as two full colour modes
