Spectrum Analyzer measurement functions - what can I do ?

The Spectrum Compact delivers a wide range of functionality: 

  1. SWEEP CONTINUOUS – sets the Spectrum Analyzer in continuous measurement of a frequency spectrum
  2. FREQ – set start, stop and center frequencies
  3. SPAN – start center frequency, and bandwidth
  4. FULL SPAN – sets span to the maximum (17GHz)
  5. MARKER – measuring out power levels at a marked location either manually, or PEAK – automatically searching for the highest output level across the desired band
  6. POWER IN BAND – in-band measurement, input power in the specified bandwidth
  7. TRACE MODENORMAL (real-time), MAXHOLD stores the max value of all traces as a reference point
  8. CUMULATIVE show how energy distributes within the spectrum
  9. AVERAGE 2/4/8/16 show the average value over the last 2-16 sweeps, LEVEL sets min/max level value and allows compensation for an attenuator
