Spectrum Compact

Spectrum Analyzer

The world’s first powerful handheld microwave spectrum analyzer.

Spectrum Compact is a truly hand-held and easy to use measurement solution for the 300 MHz - 87 GHz licensed microwave frequency bands. These battery powered devices do not require external down-converters, and are a must-have tool for any field engineer performing microwave equipment installation, link troubleshooting, site planning and maintenance. The analyzers utilize a resistive touch screen, allowing the engineer to wear gloves when using the device. SMA or 2.92mm connector* allows the Spectrum Compact to integrate with any vendor’s antenna or waveguide system. Furthermore, the high sensitivity and low noise floor make it possible to detect even exceptionally weak signals. Designed specifically for comfortable outdoor use by microwave network engineers, Spectrum Compact can also be used for various applications in VSAT, cellular network environment, ranging from signal monitoring to troubleshooting and interference detection. The Spectrum Compact can be used for high precision detection of existing interference on installed paths or available radio channels. Data logging of all spectrum scans is available with the Spectrum Compact device, and enhanced data processing and analysis are provided by SAF Tehnika designed PC software for your laptop. *for devices 300 MHz – 40 GHz
