Anritsu’s MS2721A is a handheld spectrum analyser developed to allow users to analyse wireless signals, including 802.11a, 3G, ultra-wideband, and WiMAX, up to 7 GHz.
The new unit, which covers 100 kHz to 7.1 GHz, can make a number of measurements from the push of one button, including field strength, channel power, occupied bandwidth, adjacent channel power ratio (ACPR), and carrier to interference ratio (C/I).
It has phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offsets, DANL of -152 dBm at 2.2 GHz typically, and resolution bandwidth (RBW) range of 10 Hz to 3 MHz.
Featuring an 8.4-inch TFT colour display that can be viewed in daylight, the analyser also has a user interface that can be customised in multiple languages.
Powered by a Lithium Ion battery, the MS7721A features external and internal compact flash slots, as well as Ethernet 10/100 and USB 2.0 ports, and has a wide operating temperature range of -10 degrees to +55 degrees C.
