Continuous coverage from 9kHz to 6GHz!
Zero IF system: While AR6000 applies direct conversion for
frequencies below 25MHz, for higher frequencies the Zero IF
system is used. Incoming radio signals are processed using
synchronous detection driven by a local oscillator whose frequency
is identical to, or very close to the carrier frequency of the intended
signals. This method reduces image effects and allows output of a
clean digital I/Q signal.
In recent years, frequency bands above 3 GHz are populated with
new signal standards such as MLS, STL and FPU. These new
signals in the so-called C-band and S-band offer services such as
ISM, WiMAX, etc..., which cannot be received with conventional
wideband receivers. Not only the frequency coverage, but also high
sensitivity and high reception accuracy are required for optimum
performance. All over the world, frequency bands over 2.5 GHz are
used for new digital cellular services such as LTE-Advanced,
TD-SCDMA, and WCDMA/HSPA.
Digital I/Q output: After the A/D conversion, the analog IF signal
becomes a quadrature demodulation zero-IF signal. This signal has
two components known as I (In-phase) and Q (Quadrature). I/Q
signals are expressed on a complex plane, even at the same angular
frequency; the digital signal can be processes clockwise and
counterclockwise. With the option board IQ5001, digital I/Q can be
output through USB 2.0 for demodulation by PC.
This is where AOR’s new AR6000 receiver replies to such new
needs by offering world’s first wide-band communication receiver
with frequency coverage up to 6000MHz, based on revolutionary
broadband reception and digital signal processing technology
introduced with the AR-ALPHA, AR2300 and AR5001D receivers.
On all frequencies, AR6000 provides excellent reception
characteristics and can be used for signal analysis and signal
strength measurement. Typical commercial applications are
wide-area radio monitoring, interference detection and investigation,
field-strength measurements, frequency analysis, radio propagation
research, close range detection of illegal eavesdropping devices
such as wiretap bugs and hidden wireless cameras.
■
Main features
Super wide-band: AOR is the world’s first commercial receiver
manufacturer to introduce a receiver with continuous coverage from
9kHz to 6GHz, in 1Hz step increments (2Hz over 3.15GHz). Unlike
spectrum analyzers, it offers outstanding sensitivity, selectivity and
reception stability. Thanks to its small size (30 x 22 x 10 cm), light
weight (5 kg) and 13.5V power requirements, it can be easily carried
around and used outdoors. AR6000 represents a ground breaking
new concept to your signal measuring needs.
Ultra low noise down converter: The 3.15 GHz to 6 GHz portion is
realized by cleverly designed, internal down conversion circuitry,
offering ultra-low noise figures comparable to high-end
microwave-only receivers.
Distributed constant circuit: To ensure low noise performance
and minimal performance deterioration over time and environmental
variations, AR6000 is based on distributed constant circuitry,
carefully designed by CAD/CAM and is therefore much superior to
conventional lumped element circuit based receivers.
rd
SDR architecture: Signals are processed digitally from the 3 IF
stage for better performance compared to typical analog receivers
which require a detection circuit with a separate filter. The firmware
of the high speed DSP is upgradable with great possibilities of
customization to meet future diverse needs.
Direct conversion: For LF, MF and HF (9kHz〜25MHz), signals
from the antenna are converted directly to digital baseband format
through a single frequency conversion. This method based on LSI
circuitry provides high selectivity and greatly reduces image effects.
Highly accuracy reference frequency: When connected to the
AR6000 communications receiver, the GP5001 GPS receiver
improves the frequency stability from +/- 0.1ppm to +/- 0.01 ppm; by
using the GPS pulse signal (one pulse per second) for an accurate
time base of the local oscillator circuit. +/- 0.01ppm frequency
stability of the 10MHz internal master oscillator is achieved when
synchronized to a GPS signal.
Outstanding signal level correlation: The signal input level from
the antenna is tightly correlated to the analog 15MHz wide,
45.05MHz IF output and readings of the signal meter. Variations less
than +/-1.5dB throughout all bands! Ideal for signal spectrum
analysis, precise signal level measuring and demodulation, system
calibration etc...
Up to 240 hours of audio recording: Demodulated audio can be
easily recorded as a PC compatible wav file with the built-in SD
media recorder. Approximately 8 hours of recording per 1 GB. Max.
SD size: 32GB (approx. 240 hours). Squelch recording function to
avoid blanks.
Numerous powerful features: High-speed scan & search,
two-band & offset reception, High-speed FFT spectrum display on
built-in LCD screen with selectable bandwidth 400kHz to 10MHz,
CTCSS, DCS, DTMF, AFC, voice inversion, auto-notch, noise
blanker, noise reducer, analog video out, etc...
