Spectrum Analyzers with advanced Measurement Options and Pre-Amp

BK Model268315 April 2019 - B&K Precision announced the next evolution of RF test equipment: The New 2680 Series of Spectrum Analyzers. This series includes a pre-amplifier, 2D spectrum monitor and advanced measurements such as channel power, adjacent channel power and occupied bandwidth, which are options on most competing models.

These instruments deliver performance and functionality in a compact, lightweight design. The series consists of 2.1 and 3.2 GHz models, both featuring a large 10.1” TFT wide-screen color display, 1 Hz minimum RBW and tracking generator.

The included PC software supports front panel emulation, 3D spectrum monitor, configuration, EMI scanning, EMI test reports and remote control capabilities via USB or LAN interface. These analyzers can be further expanded with two optional licenses. The reflection measurement license enables VSWR, reflection coefficient, and return loss measurements. The EMI pre-compliance license activates the instrument’s quasi-peak detection for EMI measurement functions.

The 2680 series is well suited for applications in 2-way radio, site surveying, EMI pre-compliance, characterizing the frequency response of RF devices and more.
