Product Description:

Anritsu MS2711D Handheld Spectrum Analyzer, 100 kHz to 3.0 GHz

The Anritsu MS2711D spectrum analyzer is a wide band, very sensitive receiver. It works on the principle of "super-heterodyne receiver" to convert higher frequencies (normally ranging up to several 10s of GHz) to measurable quantities. The received frequency spectrum is slowly swept through a range of pre-selected frequencies, converting the selected frequency to a measurable DC level (usually logarithmic scale), and displaying the same on the CRT of the Anritsu MS2711D. The CRT displays received signal strength (y-axis) against frequency ( x-axis).

Some applications for Anritsu MS2711D Spectrum Analyzers include Site Monitoring: Verify that the frequency and signal strength of your transmitter is accurate. Interference: Before a system is installed you use a Anritsu MS2711D spectrum analyzer to verify that the frequencies (you plan to use) are not occupied or if the presence of a very strong signal will interfere with your new setup. Interference can be created by a number of different situations. Other tests that utilize the Anritsu MS2711D spectrum analyzer features include antenna isolation, co-channel interference, adjacent channel power, occupied bandwidth, intermodulation, microwave or satellite antenna alignment, and characterization of components.

Covering the 100 kHz to 3.0 GHz frequency band, the MS2711D Handheld Spectrum Analyzer featuring a pre-amplifier(standard), a battery-operated, field-proven design so powerful, yet so small that it fits into your backpack. Its exceptional performance combined with ease-of-use and broad functionality makes it an ideal solution for field environments and applications that require mobility such as site surveys and on-site system test. Configured with an optional built-in transmission measurement that adds scalar analysis capability from 25 MHz to 2.5 GHz. A color display can be ordered as option 3. This display is for indoor use only.The MS2711D also features several dedicated one-button measurements that make testing cellular, DCS/PCS and WLAN systems among other wireless systems easier than ever before. Measurements include channel power, adjacent channel power ratio, and occupied bandwidth measurements that can confirm the distortion level or channel power level of an AMPS, TDMA, CDMA or GSM transmitter. Additionally, the MS2711D can conduct a series of spurious measurements when analyzing a wireless base station transmitter, while the field strength mode allows users to measure propagation and coverage, or to pinpoint electromagnetic (EM) leakage in broadcast systems. Measurement of carrier to interference has been added; This measurement is targeted for measurements of 802.11 a, b, and g access points. Other features include trace averaging for more accurate noise measurements; a multilingual user interface with on-screen menus and messaging in 6 different languages; and a 50-ohm interface that is adaptable to 75-ohms, enabling users to conduct measurements of 75-ohm systems without sacrificing measurement accuracy.
