Farnell element14, The Development Distributor, is now shipping the new RSA500 and RSA600 series Real Time Spectrum Analysers from Tektronix.
The RSA 500 series offers rugged, portable real time spectrum analysis for interference hunting, spectrum management and network maintenance tasks. When used in conjunction with a tablet running SignalVu-PC software, the RSA500 series is able to solve the toughest interference challenges, as well as supporting spectrum management and network maintenance tasks. As the RSA500 provides higher performance than the RSA306B, this new analyser now competes with a wider range of conventional portables. The analyser is ideal for field interference hunting, coverage mapping, surveillance and monitoring and radio network maintenance.
The RSA600 series offers mid-range laboratory spectrum analysis capabilities and is great for design, characterisation and EMC work. The RSA600 series has 40 Mhz of standard analysis bandwidth supporting analysis of the latest communications standards up to 802.11n. Real time spectrum analysis also reduces troubleshooting time by finding transient problems that other spectrum analysers may miss. With higher performance than the RSA306B this new analyser matches the demands of a broader range of customers and provides an alternative to conventional laboratory instruments at around half the price. This new analyser is ideal for WLAN/Bluetooth testing, component characterisation, cable and antenna test and RF environment record and playback.
James McGregor, global head test, Tools and Production Supplies at Premier Farnell said: “Farnell element14 has one of the broadest ranges of test and measurement equipment on the market – the RSA500 and RSA600 series of analysers from Tektronix provide new alternatives to conventional equipment, whether you are looking for a portable or lab-based solution, providing all-round usability, high performance and value for money.”
The RSA500 and RSA600 series and other products from Tektronix are available in Europe from Farnell element14.
