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
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.
Options / Accessories
• Power meter 20GHz / 40GHz
• 5ppb (0,005ppm) OCXO Time-Base
• Fitting Preamplifiers, 8 different versions (up to 20GHz)

The SPECTRAN V5 can be used together with the new, free and included in the delivery RTSA Suite Software via USB 2.0. The RTSA is one of the most powerful and flexible spectrum analysis software-solutions on the market. The software gives you the ability to display and analyze signals in real-time in many different ways. It is under constant development, with many new features being added over time. Daily updates can be found in our download-section.
Scope of Delivery
The SPECTRAN V5 Handheld comes in a padded, waterproof case. In the case you will find the spectrum analyzer, a charger, the RTSA Suite Software and the OmniLOG 70600 antenna, which comes free with the analyzer.
