FSH – Handheld Spectrum Analyzer – Rohde & Schwarz Hameg

Test and Measurement

The R&S®FSH handheld spectrum analyzer is rugged, handy and designed for use in the field. Its low weight, its simple, well-conceived operation concept and the large number of measurement functions make it an indispensable tool for anyone who needs an efficient measuring instrument for outdoor work.

The R&S®FSH is a handheld spectrum analyzer and – depending on the model and the options installed – a power meter, a cable and antenna tester and a two-port vector network analyzer. It provides the three most important RF analysis functions that an RF service technician or an installation and maintenance team needs to solve daily routine measurement tasks. For example, it can be used for maintaining or installing transmitter systems, checking cables and antennas, assessing signal quality in broadcasting, radiocommunications and service, measuring electric field strength or in simple lab applications. The R&S®FSH can perform any of these tasks quickly, reliably and with high measurement accuracy.
