Rugged spectrum analyser for outdoor use

14 November 2018 Test & Measurement

The Spectran HF-XFR Pro from Aaronia has been specifically designed for use in harsh conditions such as for military use, aerospace, mining, construction, research and development - even in pouring rain, extreme temperatures and extremely dusty and dirty environments. It has been independently tested in accordance with MIL -STD- 810G, IP65 and MIL -STD- 461F standards.

The instrument provides a powerful, impact resistant outdoor notebook as well as a high-end spectrum analyser in one compact device. Based on a novel and patented method of spectrum analysis, the locating of interference sources and their causes, determination of frequency and signal strength measurement, and evaluation conform to the most complex limits.

A variety of trigger functions is offered, in addition to an unlimited number of limits (e.g. EN55011, EN55022, ICNIR), including limit lines and beam indicator as well as a special limit editor to create and save custom limits. The spectrum analyser has an Intel i7 processor with 8 GB RAM, full HD multi- touch screen, integrated GPS and ultra-low noise level of 170 dBm to (1 Hz) DANL.

Powerful software turns the XFR into a multi-functional solution for RF measurements of all kinds. The software solution also includes a recording and playback function, simultaneous display of multiple spectra, histogram function, waterfall display, unlimited number of markers, complex limit indicator, and more.

The instrument comes with an omnidirectional antenna (700 MHz–2,5 GHz) and a loop antenna (680 MHz–10 GHz), in addition to many optional antennas for pre-compliance and EMC testing. The latter offer a higher frequency range (up to 18 GHz).
