Tektronix SA2600 Overview
The SA2600 will help you to easily discover and locate problem signals that other spectrum analyzers may miss. The revolutionary DPX™ spectrum display offers an intuitive live color view of signals changing over time in the frequency domain, giving you immediate confidence in finding interfering signals as they occur.
The SA2600 with 10 kHz-6.2 GHz frequency coverage, 20 MHz real time bandwidth and -153 dBm Displayed Average Noise Level (DANL) is designed to deliver benchtop spectrum analyzer performance in a battery-operated, handheld field unit. With a spectrum processing rate more than 100 times faster than any swept spectrum analyzer from other vendors, the SA2600 provides 100% probability of intercept for transients with minimum event durations of 500 microseconds.
The SA2600 is designed for field measurements. The new model combines a high performance spectrum analyzer with an intuitive set of user controls, allowing for the quick and simple classification and location of both analog and digital RF transmissions. The user interface is designed specifically for enhanced productivity in the field including a touch screen for easy navigation. While other solutions may require offline GPS and mapping software, the SA2600 includes integrated GPS and mapping tools to allow more efficient interference location capability. The portability allows easy instrument sharing in the laboratory environment and robust all-day battery operation in the field, all with the largest display in its class. With field-ready, rugged hardware featuring outstanding displayed average noise level (DANL), spurious free dynamic range (SFDR), phase noise and easy LAN networking capability in a portable unit, the SA2600 is a great choice for general purpose spectrum measurements.
The SA2600 has a variety of unique features such as visual and audio signal strength indicators and integrated GPS measurements mapping with direction-finding vectors for easy location of signal emitters. Having 100% probability of intercept for signals of 500 microseconds or greater, and crystal-clear spectrograms, the SA2600 is an ideal tool for surveying the RF spectrum, mapping received signal strength and resolving spectral interference disputes. It is perfect for engineers doing pre-deployment analyses, signal strength mapping or troubleshooting interference, as well as regulatory agencies who need portable measurement capabilities suitable for today''''''s RF systems.
The SA2600 is designed for general purpose field use in a wide range of frequency bands and modulation types. It incorporates a unique touch-screen interface that allows very fast tuning and zooming in and out on signals, improving operator efficiency when working across a wide range of frequency bands. The SA2600 offers both performance handheld spectrum analysis as well as innovative must-have technologies like DPX and GPS mapping at an affordable price.
