Portable monitoring receiver


RF spectrum is becoming more crowded today with an ever-increasing number of wireless products and services. Many wireless products, which can be bought globally over the internet, also contribute unsuspectingly to the growing number of RF interferers. At the same time, new communication standards with higher order modulation are also contributing to the problem.

Today, more than ever, there is a need to quickly identify and remove RF interference problems before it affects network performance and ultimately customer’s quality of experience.

The R&S PR200 portable monitoring receiver is engineered to support you in your spectrum monitoring and interference hunting tasks. It reliably detects, analyzes and locates signals from 8 kHz to 8 GHz. Optimized and designed for field operations, it combines excellent RF performance with an intuitive user interface and offers an expanded range of functions.
