Handheld spectrum analyzer for professionals - 10 MHz - 87 GHz

Handheld Spectrum Analyzer for Professionals

SAF Spectrum Compact is an RF analyzer that saves time and optimizes project costs for utilities, WISPs, mobile telcos, critical communication users, defense, military, border control and police operators. It adds flexibility and certainty to planning, maintaining, and regulating spectrum ecosystem, even from a drone.

Designed For the Field:

  • Instant ON/OFF
  • Completely stand-alone
  • Battery time up to 4 hours
  • Works perfectly with gloves
  • High sensitivity & low noise floor
  • Performs in a -15-55°C (5-131F) range
  • Goes hand in hand with the native signal generator
  • Data logging for use with PC spectrum analyzer software

Spectrum Compact free PC software and API allow integration into complex projects from TV broadcasting, live events, and scenarios requiring uninterrupted satellite and ground transmission. This ensures the highest possible quality, whether used by remote mobile units or at permanent sites. Spectrum Compact offers an abundance of tests for the automotive industry, smart factories, and IoT networks as well as adds to an electromagnetic warfare (EW) situational awareness.

Provides a Variety of Tests:

  • External PIM (passive intermodulation) detection
  • Interference hunting
  • Link troubleshooting
  • Signal coverage testing and mapping
  • Line of sight verification
  • Precise antenna alignment
  • Radio parameter verification
  • RF spectrum situational awareness

Spectrum Compact series comprises of 7 handheld spectrum analyzers 10 MHz – 87 GHz radio frequency bands. Each device is dedicated to a specific frequency range so you pay only for the range you actually use! This device offers mobility and ease of use for RF testing that portable spectrum analyzers just can not provide due to its size and weight.

Visual representation of signal level changes at a fixed frequency over the selected period of time. This feature is useful for external PIM identification.

Helps user to quickly evaluate what is happening in the radio spectrum of their interest.

Visual representation of the spectrum allows determining abnormalities in the form and shape of the signal, thus indicating potential issues with the transmitter.

Visual representation of spectrum displays in-band interference in user’s radio channel.

Cumulative trace mode helps to observe how the signal’s energy is divided within the spectrum, thus identifying the multipath effect.

Displaying minimum and maximum signal levels aids in observing the fluctuation of signal and intermittent signals.

Visual representation of spectrum displays out-of-band interference near user’s radio channel.

Allows to perform quick measurement of received signal level in specific bandwidth, also can be used to measure channel’s bandwidth and separation.

A built-in path calculator allows having an estimation of the received signal level.

Visualization of detected power levels over the time axis in the record mode can be used for more detailed spectrum analysis.

CLIENT Reviews

Our main challenge is to increase base station capacity by detecting and eliminating any interference problems in backbone point-to-point radio network. Spectrum Compact is a great tool, that has significantly decreased our interference problems.
Gunars Afonins, Deputy Head of Transmission Devision | LMT
We were pleasantly surprised by the cost of Spectrum Compact and by its potential suitability to measurement campaign in real propagation conditions, that is not limited to a restricted and static environment as a research lab.
Franco Fuschini, PhD, Research Associate at the Dept. Of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering “G. Marconi” at UNIBO
Spectrum Compact is efficient and effective at the same time. The troubleshooting saved us time and was done from the ground level which made it exceptionally convenient for our field engineers.
Liga Krumina CTO, Tele2
It's unbelievable to have such functionality in a cell-phone sized device.
Don Clowdus, CEO of Arbuckle Communications
We were so impressed with the loaned device that we bought our own spectrum analyzer. It will pay for itself with the time saved on installing and servicing microwave equipment.
Don Clowdus, CEO of Arbuckle Communications
The device is quite intuitive and simple yet very powerful when it comes to link troubleshooting and antenna alignment. We would definitely recommend Spectrum Compact to anyone who works with microwave.
Steven Grabiel, President of Higher-Speed Internet
