Description

The SPECTRAN V6 X is Aaronia’s latest generation of high-performance real-time spectrum analyzers. The SPECTRAN RSA 250X comes with 300GHz/s sweep speed. Any number of devices can be cascaded to achieve an even higher real-time bandwidth. Thus, by using only four SPECTRAN V6 RSA 250X, a real-time bandwidth of 480MHz is already achieved! The included software RTSA-Suite PRO is precisely tailored to the powerful and robust hardware and supports the use of multiple SPECTRAN V6 RSA 250X. The stackable aluminum housing facilitates the parallel use of several units. RSA 250X RF connectors: 1xRx, 50 Ohm SMA Scope of delivery: SPECTRAN V6-250X, power supply, 774-AC7 (data cable black | 1m | 2 screws), 774-CC12 (power cable red | 2m | 2 screws), USB stick with manual and software, cleaning brush
