9kHz - 20GHz | 175MHz RTBW

Buy now

The SPECTRAN V5 X is the world’s first USB spectrum analyzer with up to 175MHz real-time bandwidth. Despite the small form factor, the V5 X is able to measure even the shortest signals. The passive cooling due to the elegant aluminum casing makes the analyzer completely silent.

USB Echtzeit-Spektrumanalysator SPECTRAN V5 X

The real-time bandwidth of up to 175MHz makes the SPECTRAN V5 X a unique and powerful USB spectrum analyzer. Combined with the frequency range from 9kHz up to 20GHz, this makes the V5 X unbeatable in this price range. The spectrum analyzer was developed for stationary use in labs, but can be outfitted with a battery and thus can be used as a portable device as well.

Highlights
• Frequency range from 9kHz up to 20GHz
• Real-time bandwidth of up to 175MHz
• Including software with daily updates
• Completely silent due to passive cooling
• Compact desktop device
• Real-time and sweep spectrum analyzer in one

Casing
The black casing is cut from one massive aluminum block, ensuring optimal screening and cooling capability for the internal components, while also enhancing the devices sturdiness. Due to the passive cooling of the spectrum analyzer, it produces no noise – it’s completely silent. You can fully concentrate on your measurements and experiments.

USB
The SPECTRAN V5 X works through a USB 2.0 conntection and is thus compatible with new and older devices alike. When used as a portable device, the V5 X doesn’t use Power-Over-USB (USB connection as power source), but instead requires the optional, internal battery. This goes easy on the connected laptop’s or tablet’s battery.

Software
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 X 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.

Options
Option 020: Internal 20dB Low-Noise Pre-Amplifier
This option provides an internal, super low-noise 20dB Pre-Amplifier, enabling maximum performance particularly when measuring extremely weak signals. It is switched via a true RF switch.
In the scope of delivery
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.

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.
