Anritsu FAQs

When do I use the Peak detector?

This is the default detector for most measurements and is good for measuring CW signals, or for when you want to catch a transient.  The peak detector gives a good overall picture of the spectrum but it’s not very good for measuring noise or modulated signals, as the peak of these signals is not well defined.
