The R&S Spectrum Rider FPH portable analysers family from Rohde & Schwarz has been extended with the introduction of new base models offering measurement frequencies up to 44 GHz.

They join existing R&S FPH models having measurement frequencies from 5 kHz to 6, 13.6, and 26.5 GHz.

Three new versions with tracking generators are available with measurement frequencies up to 13.6, 26.5 and 44 GHz.

Large buttons and multi-touch gesture screen make the instruments easy to operate.

New higher frequency models enable the R&S Spectrum Rider to perform a broader range of measurement tasks.

With high sensitivity of –160 dBm and measurement accuracy of typically 0.5 dB between 10 MHz and 3 GHz, the R&S Spectrum Rider offers class-leading RF performance.

The new models support field applications such as verification of 5G, broadcast, radar, defence and satellite communications links.

Weighing just 3.2 kg for 44 GHz model, the R&S Spectrum Rider is optimised for mobile use.

Its battery lasts up to 4.5 hours, making it the most lasting 44 GHz handheld spectrum analyser for field task.

The backlit keypad allows users to work in the dark, and the non-reflective display supports a daylight mode for improved readability in direct sunlight.

This handheld spectrum analyser family boasts a large-format capacitive touchscreen that makes it easy to intuitively adjust settings such as frequency, span and reference level, and to set markers.

Plus, large buttons and a practical multifunction wheel facilitate operation with gloves in outdoor environments.

The analyser can be remotely controlled via USB, or LAN and, for even more convenience, the R&S MobileView app for iOS or Android provides seamless remote control of the device.

The R&S Spectrum Rider spectrum analysers are part of the R&S Essentials portfolio. All models are now available from Rohde & Schwarz and from the company's selected distribution partners.
