Buy now

The SPECTRAN V5 is the world’s first and only real-time handheld spectrum analyzer. Despite the very compact form factor, the V5 is still able to measure even the shortest signal transmissions. The analyzer has many possible applications and is ideal for fast and precise measurements on the road and in the lab.

The V5 Handheld is the first device of this size that is able to offer a real-time bandwidth of up to 175MHz. In combination with the wide frequency range starting from 9kHz and going up to 20GHz, this makes the SPECTRAN V5 Handheld unbeatable in its price range. The device is 850g light, robust and handy. It was developed for the use outdoors or in the field, but it can be used in labs just like a normal USB spectrum analyzer.

• Frequency range from 9kHz up to 20GHz
• Real-time bandwidth of up to 175MHz
• Most compact real-time spectrum analyzer in the world
• The only real handheld real-time spectrum analyzer
• Save measurements on a MicroSD card (up to 512GB)
• Simultaneous measurement of 4 bands on the go
• Real-time and sweep spectrum analyzer in one
• 20GHz sweep in 20ms

Operating System
The SPECTRAN V5 Handheld uses a special, custom-developed operating system. This allows for precise and fast measurements on the go. The data can be displayed as a waterfall in real-time, perfect for detecting signals. To further ease your job, there are multiple traces built into the software – Min, Max, AVG, Peak Decay and more. You can also save up to 10 different measurement profiles with different settings directly in the handheld analyzer itself, and later load them as needed. Another interesting function is the ability to measure and display up to four different frequency ranges simultaneously, in real-time. This way you can keep multiple GSM and WLAN bands under constant surveillance. Further, the device offers a few different kinds of streaming, for example I/Q-Datastream, Power over Frequency, Audio Demodulation Stream. It can demodulate AM, FM and PM internally.

The normal battery life of the spectrum analyzer is around two hours. When connected to a power source the analyzer can be used 24/7.

Option 002: 5ppb (0,005ppm) OCXO Timebase
This highly precise OCXO timebase, which has been especially developed for the SPECTRAN®, offers significantly reduced phase noise (jitter). This will allow the use of far narrower filters, which will in turn vastly enhance sensitivity. To fully exploit the maximum sensitivity this option is indispensable! Furthermore, the OCXO timebase allows far more accurate frequency measurement and display.

Omnidirectional Antennas
The OmniLOG series was developed as a cost-effective broadband antenna series for omni-directional measurements up to 8GHz. The antennas are small in size, cover frequencies from 300MHz up to 8GHz and have steady gain across the range. Compared to the HyperLOG series, the OmniLOG antennas enables the omni-directional measurement of field-strengths without having to point the antenna at the source. This allows for much faster threshold measurements.

Active Differential Probe ADP1 (DC – 40MHz)
Our special Active Differential Probe ADP1 offers a potential free measurement and also expands the measurement range up to 240V. With this probe the signal will not be influenced (potential free measurement). It also protects the SPECTRAN Spectrum Analyzer input against high voltages up to 1400V (CAT3). It's a "must have" for direct cable-measurements on DSL, ADSL, VDSL, free running oszillators, mains etc. Included in delivery is a special grounding kit which protects the unit against static electricity (ESD). This is very important at long time measurements. Power supply is possible with the internal cells (4 x AA, not included) or, at long time measurements, with a mains adapter (included).
