The versatile Spectrum Rider assists users during RF transmitter installation and maintenance and also supports measurement tasks in RF development labs and in service. With its high sensitivity of -160 dBm and measurement accuracy of typically 0.5 dB between 10 MHz and 3 GHz, the Spectrum Rider offers class-leading RF performance. Its frequency range can be extended via software upgrades, a feature unrivaled in this instrument class. The base model covers the frequency range from 5 kHz to 2 GHz, which can be expanded to 3 or 4 GHz to support applications that require higher frequencies such as measuring radio signals above 2 GHz or signals above 3 GHz in TD-LTE bands. In addition, the Spectrum Rider has been optimized for mobile use. The battery of the lightweight unit (2.5 kg) lasts up to eight hours, making it the only instrument of its kind capable of working a full day without recharging. The backlit keypad allows users to work in the dark, and the non-reflective display supports a daylight mode for good readability in direct sunlight. The Spectrum Rider has been field-tested in line with MIL-PRF-28800F Class 2 and comes with protected interfaces and ports.
