Spectrum Analyzer

Spectrum Compact

Pioneering tool to revolutionize work of microwave radio field engineer

The world’s first powerful handheld microwave spectrum analyzer.

Spectrum Compact is an ultra-light and easy to use measurement solution for the 2 – 40 GHz licensed microwave frequency bands. This battery-powered device is a must-have tool for any microwave radio engineer performing equipment installation, link troubleshooting and site planning. The LCD touchscreen ensures smooth and intuitive onsite use, and the SMA connector* allows the Spectrum Compact to integrate with any vendor’s antenna or waveguide system. Designed specifically for comfortable outdoor use by microwave network engineers, Spectrum Compact can also be used for various applications in VSAT environment, ranging from signal monitoring to link troubleshooting and interference detection. The Spectrum Compact can be used for high precision detection of existing interference on installed paths or available radio channels. Data logging of all spectrum scans is available with the Spectrum Compact device, and enhanced data processing and analysis are provided by SAF Tehnika designed PC software for your laptop.
