Spectrum Analyzer
Description
Benefits
The built-in Spectrum Analyzer will display
a window of RF spectrum anywhere within the
400 kHz to 1 GHz operating range of the unit.
The EXPAND softkey enlarges the display to
fill the LCD and retains dispersion and center
frequency control.
The ability to observe the spectrum display for
detailed analysis through the use of multiple
Markers provides a significant advantage. The
tuning knob retains control of the center frequency even in the EXPAND mode to perform
fast sweeps or fine tuning. This allows you to
quickly locate and identify signal carriers.
The optional High Performance spectrum
analyzer (standard on R2670) adds Marker
functions for more precise measurements of
level and frequency (both absolute and delta).
Included with the marker functions are additional dispersion selections – up to 10 MHz per
division, plus the additional freeze, peak hold,
and max hold features.
Terminated RF Wattmeter
4
RF power anywhere in the operating range of
400 kHz to 1GHz is automatically measured by
the Communications System Analyzer when
tuned to that frequency. The built-in RF load
dissipates up to 125 watts for one minute.
If a high power transmitter should be keyed
into the unit for any longer, the LCD changes to
read “WARNING RF OVERLOAD,” thus warning
the technician to un-key.
This feature provides calibrated RF power
measurements eliminating the need for a
separate wattmeter. The LCD also displays
frequency error and modulation level readings
simultaneously.

access to frequently used channel location
information to speed testing. Scanning allows
automatic monitoring and measurement of
activity on channels of interest.
Programmable Test Setups (standard in R2670;
optional in R2600 and R2625) – You can easily
program and store up to 15 of the most
commonly used test configurations, including
all test conditions, measurement display
formats, and levels. These memory settings
operate independently of the channel presets.
Programmable Test Setups (standard in R2670;
optional in R2600 and R2625) – You can
significantly reduce the number of key presses
required to set up more commonly used
test configurations, greatly increasing your
efficiency while promoting uniform test
procedures. You can also assign a custom
name to the configuration for easy recall.
Relative Signal Strength Meter
In addition to reading frequency error and
modulation, a digital readout relative signal
strength meter has been included. Sensitivity
is specified to -100 dBm at the antenna port
for FM signals and extends up to 125 watts
at the RF I/O port. The LCD display will
automatically convert to a terminating “watts”
display as the level increases.
This feature, in conjunction with an external
antenna, allows remote monitoring of distant
transmitters to check for antenna, transmission
line or P.A. problems. Many users also find this
feature convenient in performing propagation
studies to identify weak coverage areas.
RF Scan/RF Counter Function
RF Scan operates in the monitor mode
and provides a function similar to a 1 GHz
counter. This feature automatically scans a
user-defined frequency range and locks on the
applied signal. Any RF carrier above 20 MHz
can be located within 5 seconds and the
reception displayed with digital readouts.
This feature allows convenient and immediate
verification of the programming of a multichannel radio. By automatically tuning the
analyzer’s receiver to the detected carrier,
immediate measurement data can be taken
without having to enter new frequency data
via the keyboard.
Duplex
Full output level control from -130 dBm to 0
dBm over the entire range of the instrument
is available from the RF I/O port (-130 dBm up
to -50 dBm) and the generator port (-80 dBm
to 0 dBm). Variable offsets from 0 to ±999.995
MHz in 5 kHz steps are keypad-selectable.
The duplex generator provides enhanced
capability to service equipment, such as
repeaters and full duplex radios. Full RF level
control, as well as full internal and external
modulation capability allows receiver desensitization and transmitter tests to be performed
simultaneously through one port, if desired.
Programmable Test Memory
The wide offset range extends the functionality
to include cross band repeater systems, as
well as enhanced receiver and transmitter
troubleshooting capabilities.
Tracking Generator (standard
in R2670; optional in R2600 and R2625)
The combining of the capabilities of the sweep
generator and the spectrum analyzer into a
Tracking Generator function allows the user to
view the performance characteristics of many
RF filter devices. Display range is operator
selectable from a 200 kHz window up to a 50
MHz window anywhere in the 400 kHz to 1GHz
spectrum.
Diagnosis and adjustment of critical
receiver front ends, IFs, helical filters, cavities,
combiners and duplexers can be made in
a few minutes, quickly and easily with the
flexibility of a tracking generator at your
fingertips.

Signaling Simulator:
Encoder and Decoder
The System Analyzer includes the capability of
encoding and decoding PRIVATE LINE (PL),
DIGITAL PRIVATE LINE (DPL), and single tone
sequences as well as multi-tone sequences
including DTMF signals, 5/6 tone paging,
Select V and up to 20 sequential tones.
Decoding displays include tone frequencies
and time durations of the individual tones. The
unit can also encode tone remote signaling.
The signaling capability of the unit reaches
a broader range of service applications with
its decode capability. This gives you a more
flexible test instrument which aids in servicing
paging equipment and specialized signaling
encoders, as well as mobile, portable and
other radio products. The signaling simulator
can perform a full system check-out faster,
with more accuracy than ever before.
General Purpose
& Modulation Oscilloscope
The oscilloscope has a 50 kHz bandwidth for
audio waveform analysis. The display can be
triggered over the full screen range to a fixed
reference level. Triggering in both automatic
and normal modes is provided for synchronizing the horizontal timebase to the vertical
input signal. Internal or external inputs allow
observation of both generated and monitored
modulation signals. Softkeys provide for an
enlarged full screen display.
Recovered audio or internally produced
audio can be displayed visually for deviation
measurements. Additionally, detection of an
asymmetric modulation or audio distortion can
be achieved with waveform analysis. With
internal and external triggering and a freeze
display single sweep, this unit duplicates many
features of more expensive scopes. The
markers allow detailed analysis to measure
waveforms displayed on the LCD. The EXPAND
function provides an enlarged, easy to
interpret view of the signal for quick analysis.
The optional High Performance Spectrum
Analyzer (standard on R2670) adds Marker
functions for more precise measurements of
Voltage, Frequency, and Period.
AM, FM Signal Generator
When the GENERATE mode is selected, the
RF modulation method, carrier frequency,
bandwidth, composite audio modulation,
and RF signal level output are displayed on
the LCD.
In addition to reducing receiver test time, this
flexible, self-calibrating signal generator is
complemented by the simultaneous display of
all necessary control information.
Off-the-Air Sensitive Receiver
The 2 microvolt sensitivity of the unit is
available through the antenna port. This allows
off-the-air monitoring of remote transmitters
operating up to 1 GHz. Variable squelch aids
in picking up weak signals but can be set
tighter to ensure the proper S/N ratio for
measurement accuracy.
This feature reduces service costs by enabling
frequent preventive maintenance parameter
checks for system degradation or interference
identification without leaving the shop.
Electronic Software Updates
High-Speed serial port and flashable memory
permit programming firmware updates from an
external PC.
Quick and easy access to future software
updates.
Cable Fault (standard in R2670;
Cable fault and length are RF measurement
features which help the technician isolate
cable defects. Supported by on-screen
prompts and user-selectable Help messages,
you can quickly set up and accurately
determine the distance to a fault on a coaxial
cable. The distance to fault (or cable length)
is computed and displayed in feet or
metric units.
Cable fault locating techniques are mandatory
for site servicing, where visual inspection
is not practical, safe, or effective in detecting
hidden or cold-flow damage. The semi-automatic operation of the cable faultfinder
precludes the use of mathematical formulas
and manual calculations, maximizing your
on-site productivity.
A full bi-directional RS232 port is standard
and includes the capability to respond to serial
input command vocabulary and return measurement results as a serial output stream.
Included are user-selectable baud rates (up
to 115.2 Kbps) and start, stop and parity bit
selection. In addition, this dual function port
can drive a serial printer to print out data and
graphic displays. The optional IEEE remote
interface option contains the necessary
hardware and software for IEEE-488.2.
If you have large volume repetitive testing
requirements, this feature allows you to write
your own programs to reduce test time costs.
Printed results can be used as part of the
service shop’s internal quality control system
and can be used to demonstrate performance
to the radio equipment user.
