Spectrum Master MS2720T


Anritsu’s latest generation of handheld spectrum analysers is the Anritsu MS2720T Spectrum Master. This represents the company’s highest performance handheld spectrum analyzer. Exciting new features and options bring more value and speed to the user.

  • Frequency Coverage: 9 kHz to 43 GHz
  • Broadband preamplifiers over the whole frequency range for increased sensitivity approximately 17 dB
  • Three Sweep Modes: improved sweep speed, up to 100 times faster
  • Resolution and Video Bandwidths from 1 Hz to 10 MHz
  • New triggering choices, including hysteresis, hold-off, and delay
  • More zero-span capabilities including 10 MHz RBW & VBW
  • Enhanced Spectrum Analyser Touch Screen GUI, including large marker display choice
  • Choice of display options for readability: normal, black and white, night vision, or high contrast
  • On-screen Interference Mapping as part of the Interference Analysis option
  • LTE Measurements up to 20 MHz
  • 30 MHz wide Zero-Span IF Output at 140 MHz centre frequency for external demodulation of virtually any wideband signal
  • Burst detect captures 200 μs bursts the first time, every time

The Anritsu Spectrum Master MS2720T features over 30 analysers in one to meet virtually every measurement need. In addition to spectrum analysis, a user can select optional capabilities and analysers including:

  • High Accuracy Power Meter
  • Tracking Generator options to 20 GHz
  • Interference Analyser
  • Channel Scanner
  • 140 MHz Zero-Span IF Output, 30 MHz bandwidth
  • GPS Receiver
  • Increase Frequency Accuracy, Geo-Tag Data Collection
  • Secure Data Operation option
  • 3GPP Signal Analysers
  • 3GPP2 Signal Analysers
  • CDMA and EV-DO
  • IEEE 802.16 Signal Analysers
  • Fixed WiMAX and Mobile WiMAX

For post processing data collected on your instrument utilise Master Software Tools – a PC program included with the instrument. It provides powerful data analysis tools for spectrum clearing and interference monitoring, and the Remote Access Tool allows the user to see and control the instrument over a LAN connection.

Weighing about 8 pounds fully loaded, including a Li-Ion battery, the fully functional Anritsu Spectrum Master MS2720T family of handheld spectrum analysers are light enough to take anywhere, including up a tower.

Continuous frequency coverage from 9 kHz to 43 GHz gives the wireless professional the performance needed for the most demanding measurements. Whether your application is spectrum monitoring, hidden signal detection, RF and microwave signal measurements, microwave backhaul testing, or cellular signal measurements, the Spectrum Master MS2720T gives you the tools you need to make the job easier and more productive.
