Now available from Link Microtek is a new hand-held RF field strength meter that incorporates spectrum analyser functionality, providing engineers and technicians with a cost-effective yet versatile tool for RF signal analysis. AWT Global’s UBA 9290 covers the frequency range 100kHz to 2.9GHz and has a sensitivity of -117dBm, which means it is capable of detecting and analysing even weak RF signals.
Equally at home in the field and in the laboratory, the new instrument is suitable for the installation, maintenance and testing of a wide variety of RF systems, including mobile phone infrastructure, TV and radio broadcast equipment, RFID systems, private mobile radio (PMR) transmitters and telemetry systems.
Waveforms are shown on the 320 x 240 pixel TFT colour display, while dual markers allow the user to read out absolute amplitude and frequency as well as delta values. Up to 100 waveforms or settings can be stored in the unit’s memory.
As the UBA 9290 supports high-speed USB, measurement data can be transferred to a PC for further analysis, and the instrument can also be controlled from the computer using the software supplied.
Other built-in features include a frequency counter for measurements from 9MHz to 2.1GHz and an attenuator offering 10, 20, 30 and 35dB settings.
With overall dimensions of 82 x 205 x 36mm and weighing less than 400g, this compact instrument comes with software, carrying case, power supply, rechargeable batteries, USB cable, N/TNC adapter and wideband measurement antenna.
