RF Testing

Compliance testing is preventive maintenance that should be considered at least every two years. When was your last RF test certification?
Re-certification of the enclosure and repair of any RF leaks are vital to ensuring your shield is working at its optimal level. When your RF shield is working properly, you can provide artifact-free images for quality patient care.
Diagnostic testing is used to detect problems within new and existing RF enclosures. Natural aging of a building can cause water leaks and structural movement can affect your shielding performance. In addition, ancillary items that are added to the enclosure, such as injectors, CCTVs, sound systems, or thermostats can effect image quality.
The Anritsu MS2711-5 hand held spectrum analyzer is designed for field environments and applications requiring mobility, the MS2711 features easy-to-use, accurate performance in a light weight (4 .0 Ibs, 1 .8 kg), battery operated unit covering the 100 kHz to 3000 MHz frequency range. Ideal for field/mobility use, the Anritsu MS2711 satisfies spectrum analysis needs in cellular, DCS/PCS, paging/messaging, WLAN/WPBX, and many other communications system applications - anywhere, anytime.
Utilizing an advanced synthesizer-based design, the MS2711 delivers accurate, reliable, and repeatable measurements - anywhere, every time. A broad range of functions, coupled with resolution bandwidths ranging from 10 kHz to 1 MHz, simplifies identification of interfering signals in modern wireless systems. Rugged packaging keeps the Anritsu MS2711 operating in harsh environments and allows it to withstand rough handling.
