Facts instead of assumptions !

As well as the radiology for medicinic diagnostics spectrum analysis has the same importance in high-frequency applications. At a glance the complete spectrum occupation and the corresponding signal levels are visible.

Satellite TV Spectrum Analyzer

SpectraBox® / SAT - First Member of a New Spectrum Analyzer Family

Small, handy and compact. Nearly the same size as a video cassette and a low weight of hardly 700g make the device to an ideal companion for installation, maintainance and service applications. A built-in accumulator allows portable operation for many hours.

All important informations are visible on a illuminated graphic liquid cristal display.

Thanks to a very low resolution bandwidth of 0.2MHz very small signals like digital SCPC signals can be detected.

The device is also an ideal supplement for measurement devices without a spectrum analyzer option. With an additional splitter it is possible to operate the device in a parallel configuration.

SOME EXEMPLARY APPLICATIONS:

  • Spectrum monitoring, surveillance & signal identification

  • Measurement of cross polarity separation & C/N

  • Detection of radiation leakage & interference and signal sources

  • Broadband measurement of insertion gain or loss

  • Antenna adjustment & satellite searching e.g. VSAT

Test Report:

Christian Mass: NTi SpectraBox SAT - TELE-satellite International 10-11/2002

A test report of our Satellite Spectrum Analyzer SpectraBox is available in issue 10-11/2002 of the world`s largest satellite magazine TELE-satellite International (pages 93&94).

Some equotations:

" ... This device is more than just a spectrum analyzer. If it is used only for setup of an antenna, many of its features wouldn`t even be used. ... The logical menu arrangement and its excellent signal processing deserve high praise."
