Three base models providing frequency ranges from 5kHz to 6GHz, 13.6GHz and 26.5GHz have been added to the Rohde & Schwarz Spectrum Rider FPH family of spectrum analysers. The R&S Spectrum Rider FPH was the industry's first handheld spectrum analyser to offer a capacitive touchscreen and a unique frequency upgrade concept via keycodes.

Since upgrades require neither downtime nor recalibration, users can upgrade their base models, e.g. from 26.5GHz to 31GHz.

The higher-frequency models enable the rugged R&S Spectrum Rider FPH to perform a vast 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 satellite communications links.

The instrument will appeal to field technicians and lab engineers alike, as it supports everyday measurement tasks in aerospace and defence, mobile network testing and broadcasting, as well as tasks to be performed by regulatory authorities and tasks in education.

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 analyser can be remotely controlled via USB or LAN. For even more convenience, the R&S MobileView app for iOS and Android provides 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.
