The SPECTRAN V5 XFR Pro is the world’s first and only military standard real-time spectrum analyzer. The XFR Pro offers all the advantages of a rugged Laptop and combines these with a powerful real-time spectrum analyzer. Developed and built for extreme conditions and independently MIL-STD-810G and IP65 tested.

Robuster Echtzeit-Spektrumanalysator SPECTRAN V5 XFR Pro

The V5 XFR offers up to 175MHz real-time bandwidth in the frequency range from 9kHz up to 20GHz. The device can be also used as a powerful laptop. Perfectly suited for frequency-monitoring and the detection of unknown or illegal signal transmissions.

• Frequency range from 9kHz up to 20GHz (with low frequency option)
• Real-time bandwidth of up to 175MHz
• MIL-STD-810G and IP65 certified
• Up to 8 TB SSD (Hard Disk / Storage)
• Automatic Triggers programmable
• Simultaneous surveillance of multiple bands (3G, 4G, WLAN...)
• Real-time and sweep spectrum analyzer in one
• Including software with daily updates
• 20GHz Sweep in 20ms
• Built-in GPS
• HF Connector N-female

The SPECTRAN V5 XFR Pro was specifically developed for counter-surveillance. The spectrum analyzer, in combination with the RTSA Suite Software, makes it possible to monitor multiple bands in real-time. It can also trigger an alarm when any suspicious activity occurs – for example in the bands 2G, 3G, 4G, LTE, WLAN 2,4 or 5,8. Alternatively, the XFR Pro can use the super quick sweep to scan the complete band from 9kHz to 20GHz. This way any interferers, tracking or listening devices can be found and dealt with quickly (with the help of a directional antenna).

It is possible to use the V5 XFR in a stealthier manner – with the display closed – and still record signals and get a warning tone through the audio output or the integrated speakers, if any of the automatic triggers are activated. It is also possible to demodulate audio signal transmissions, if you want to monitor wireless communication.

This spectrum analyzer was independently MIL-STD-810G and IP65 tested. The casing is made from a high-quality magnesium alloy and was specifically designed and developed to protect the analyzer against drops, shocks, spills, vibration and more. The sealed design of the XFR additionally protects it against dust and moisture. This enables the spectrum analyzer to be used in the harshest, most difficult conditions – like jungles, deserts or a polar circle. The V5 XFR Pro can be used at temperatures from -20°C up to +60°C.

Laptop Highlights
• Powerful i7 Processor

• 500GB HDD (optional up to 8TB SSD)
• 15,6” Full-HD 1080p with Multi-Touch
• Removable hard-drive
• Fingerprint Sensor

The V5 XFR Pro is not only a powerful spectrum analyzer, but also a high-performance laptop. The system can be used as a normal Windows-PC. This means that no additional laptop/notebook/tablet is required for computer-based work on-location.

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.

DC-Blocker (SMA)
The DC-Blocker must be used if you want to measure active powered antennas like GPS or satellite dishes. It prevents the RF-input of the SPECTRAN from being destroyed by the DC-voltages. Simply connect the DC-Blocker to the RF-input of your SPECTRAN and you can measure directly on GPS, satellite antennas or even DSL/ISDN etc. lines.
