SPECTRAN V6 X

Features

Aaronia presents the SPECTRAN® V6 X: the world’s first and only 6GHz (opt. 8GHz) USB spectrum analyzer with dual USB true I/Q streaming of up to 245MHz (via 2xUSB) instanta­neous bandwidth (complex I/Q). It offers an extremely small POI (Probability Of Intercept) of up to 10ns and thus captures even extremely short signals. Furthermore, the SPECTRAN® V6 X integrates a vector signal generator/tracking generator with a modulation bandwidth of up to 120MHz (opt. 245MHz).

The SPECTRAN® V6 X is Aaronia’s latest generation of high-performance real-time spectrum analyzers. With a sweep speed of over 1THz/s it sets new standards in the USB compact class. Any number of devices can be cascaded to achieve an even higher real-time bandwidth. Thus, by using only four SPECTRAN® V6 X, a real-time bandwidth of 1GHz 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 X. The stackable aluminum housing facilitates the parallel use of several units.

The SPECTRAN® V6 X will initially be delivered in three versions: V6-RSA250X, V6-RSA500X and V6-RSA2000X – with a max. instanta­neous bandwidth (complex I/Q) of up to 245MHz (via 2xUSB). The analyzer is compatible to all common Aaronia antennas.

Housings
The high-quality black anodized housing is cut from a solid aluminium block. Thus the SPECTRAN® V6 X achieves an optimal shielding and cooling for the internal components. At the same time, the housing construction ensures maximum robustness. The integrated fan is speed- and temperature-controlled and thus generates only minimal noise.

USB
Depending on the version, the SPECTRAN® V6 X has one or two USB 3.0 ports for data transfer. A further USB port can optionally be used as power supply. A 26,800 mAh power pack with the same form factor is available separately and allows operation without the strain on the laptop battery.

Software
The spectrum analyzer is supplied with the latest version of the RTSA-Suite PRO software.
It is the most powerful and versatile spectrum analysis software solution on the market. The RTSA-Suite PRO allows signals to be displayed and analyzed in real time in many different ways. The software is constantly being developed and expanded. In the download section we provide daily updates. In the SPECTRAN® V6 Forum you will find all the latest information about our software.

Scope of Delivery

SPECTRAN® V6 X with all necessary USB cables and also the RTSA-Suite PRO software and manuals on USB stick. Optionally also available in a waterproof and shockproof transport case.

Made in Germany
Like all instruments of the SPECTRAN® series, the SPECTRAN® V6 X spectrum analyzer is completely developed and manufactured in Germany. Therefore the hardware meets the highest quality standards.

Versions

With the RTSA-Suite PRO there are many ways to display and analyse any received or recorded data. The software is being updated and expanded with new features almost daily.
