R&S FPC Spectrum Analyzer
R&S FPC Key Features:
• RF performance engineered in Germany
• 10.1″ WXGA (1366 × 768 pixel) display – largest and highest resolution in its class
• Frequency range from 5 kHz to 1 GHz, upgradable to 2 GHz/3 GHz
• Resolution bandwidth settings down to 1 Hz
• Tracking generator and independent CW signal generator
• Built-in VSWR bridge
• One-port vector network analyzer with Smith chart display
• Wi-Fi-enabled, supported by included remote control software
• 3 year standard warranty
The R&S FPC is the only spectrum analyzer on the market that provides the value of three instruments in one. And these are the three most commonly used instruments on an RF engineer’s workbench.
The R&S FPC1500 base instrument has a frequency range from 5 kHz to 1 Ghz with options to unlock up to 3 GHz and other features.
Engineered in Germany, it provides the best dynamic range in its class. In combination with RBW settings down to 1 Hz, it resolves the finest details, which are displayed on the high-resolution 10.1” WXGA display. Wired or wireless remote control options are available free of charge.
Vector Network Analyzer
The R&S FPC is a vector network analyzer that utilizes an integrated VSWR bridge to achieve one-port vector network analysis, with a Smith chart display available. Having an integrated VSWR bridge means there is no need to mount/dismount an external bridge during test operation.
The R&S FPC is a signal generator due to the unique independent source principle. Not only does it provide standard tracking generator functionality, it can also be used in free or coupled CW modes.
The advantages of this three-in-one concept allows only one bench space to be occupied. A single instrument also means that to obtain the specified measurement performance, only a single investment and a single calibration are required.
High Resolution Display
The R&S FPC has the largest, highest-resolution display of any entry level spectrum analyzer. More horizontal plus more vertical display size and resolution means more signal details in unprecedented clarity. This class-leading display of the R&S FPC visualizes the outstanding quality of the signal measurements.
The quality of RF measurements strongly depends on suitable resolution bandwidth settings. Finer resolution bandwidth means more resolved spectral detail. High sensitivity is critical in many applications, e.g. when measuring extremely weak signals. The R&S FPC provides an extraordinarily low noise floor of typ. –150 dBm with 1 Hz resolution bandwidth setting.
The optional R&S FPC-B22 preamplifier increases sensitivity even further, to typ. –165 dBm. While most entry level spectrum analyzers can measure up to +20 dBm (100 mW), the R&S®FPC is able to measure high-power signals of up to +30 dBm (1 W).
The combination of low noise floor and high max. input power provides an exceptionally wide measurement dynamic range in the R&S FPC.
