The new models are suitable for field test applications in 5G communications, broadcasting, radar, defense and satellite.

The 44 GHz model weighs 3.2 kg and has a battery life of 4.5 hours. Its backlit keyboard allows users to work in the dark, while its non-reflective display offers a dedicated daylight mode for best readability in bright sunlight.

The Spectrum Rider FPH family of portable spectrum analyzers features a 7-inch diagonal capacitive touchscreen that makes it easy to intuitively set parameters such as frequency, span and reference level, as well as marker positioning.

Large buttons and an ergonomic multi-function wheel make it easy to use the instrument with gloves in outdoor environments.

The analyzer can be remotely controlled via USB or LAN. For added convenience, the R&S MobileView app for iOS or Android allows remote control of the instrument.
