Spectrum analyzer suits budget environments

-December 13, 2012

Intended for cost-constrained applications in R&D, manufacturing, maintenance, education labs, and bench repair, Agilent’s N9322C basic spectrum analyzer covers a frequency range of 9 kHz to 7 GHz with 1-Hz resolution. It also offers value-added options like a channel scanner, tracking generator, and time-gated spectrum analysis.
The N9322C has a typical DANL (displayed average noise level) of –152 dBm for viewing low-level signals. Its ±0.1-ppm annual aging rate reduces frequency drift for more accurate measurements. The channel scanner measures up to 20 channels simultaneously, while the 7-GHz tracking generator with built-in VSWR bridge supports general-purpose transmission and reflection measurements.

Supplied with the spectrum analyzer is Agilent’s PowerSuite, which enables one-button measurement of channel power, occupied bandwidth, adjacent channel power, and spectrum emission mask. Also available is a spectrum monitor with spectrogram record and playback. User-definable soft keys provide quick access to seven of the most frequently used measurement setups and makes it easy to switch from one task to another. The analyzer’s demodulation mode helps engineers better characterize AM, FM, ASK, and FSK signals.

Prices for the N9322C basic spectrum analyzer start at $11,413. The tracking generator option starts at $2484.
