  • Multi-segmented upper and lower limit lines
The MS2724B handheld spectrum analyzer is designed to conduct highly accurate analysis on the new wave of wireless LAN and cellular signals, including 802.11a, 3G, ultra-wideband, and wireless medical patient monitoring systems. The next generation of Anritsu's best selling Spectrum Master, the MS2724B is a small and easy to use portable spectrum analyzer with unprecedented measurement capability for applications up to 20 GHz. Weighing in at less than 8 pounds, it is equally at home on the engineering bench and in the field. It is ideally suited for measuring up to the fifth harmonic of 3G cellular phone base stations.

Several smart measurements are built into the MS2724B including channel power, adjacent channel power ratio, Carrier to Interference ratio (C/I), and field strength. In addition, an AM/FM/SSB demodulator is included. Demodulated signals can be monitored using the internal speaker or by using a universal 2.5 mm 3-wire headset, such as used with many cellular telephones.

The MS2724B spectrum analyzer has low phase noise of -104 dBc/Hz typical at 1 GHz @ 10 kHz offset, best in its class typical DANL of -159 dBm at 1 GHz in a 1 Hz RBW, resolution bandwidth (RBW) range of 1 Hz to 3 MHz and video bandwidth (VBW) range of 1 Hz to 3 MHz. It also has the fastest sweep speeds of any spectrum analyzer in its class.

Store over 1000 test set-ups and measurements internally. The use of Compact Flash memory modules or USB Flash Drives allow an unlimited number of traces and setups to be stored. Measurements may be stored directly to the compact flash module. A 512 MB module will hold over 20,000 Spectrum Analyzer measurements. Remote programming using the Ethernet 10/100 Base-T connection is provided using SCPI programming. The Ethernet connection gives the user flexibility in remotely operating the instrument using Anritsu's remote access software, shipped with the product. Measurements and setups may be uploaded and downloaded using either the Ethernet or the USB connection.

Quasi-peak detection is included along with CISPR resolution bandwidth.
Multilingual User Interface (English, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Korean, Italian)

Applications

Convenient operating procedures, high sensitivity, excellent repeatability and exceptional performance enable the MS2724B to simplify measurements on wireless systems for easy verification of system compliance. Typical applications include:


  • Measurement of the 5th harmonic of 3G cellular base station signals
  • Transmitter Spectrum Analysis - occupied bandwidth, channel power, adjacent channel power ratio and modulation
  • Received Signal Analysis - location and identification of in-band interference and out-of-band spurious signals and spectral masks
  • Signal Strength Mapping - to determine the most suitable location for antennas, base stations and repeaters
  • Field analysis of 3G signals - fast sweep speed, field-swappable battery, smart measurements and daylight-viewable display make the MS2724B an ideal choice for the challenge of rugged environments
  • Broadcast measurement AM & FM analog and IBOC proofing measurements
