After a successful showing at NAB2005, Rohde & Schwarz introduced its R&S FSH3-TV handheld analyzer to European customers. It’s designed for servicing new installations and maintaining or repairing TV cable network or transmitter components.
The R&S FSH3-TV combines the functions and characteristics of a full-featured spectrum analyzer with the functionalities of a TV test receiver; enabling all measurements essential in field use to be performed with only one instrument. It comes equipped with a TV board, a preamplifier and a tracking generator. It supports all common analog TV standards such as B, G/H, D/K, N, I, L, M/NTSC and M/PAL, and can be upgraded any time for DVB-C, J.83/B or ATSC/8VSB.
It also provides many predefined settings. In addition to direct frequency entry, the R&S FSH3-TV offers tuning by means of channel numbers. Predefined channel tables for numerous countries are already included and can be modified as required at any time. The R&S FSH3-TV provides a wide range of specific CATV measurements, including the display of constellation diagrams for digital TV signals.
The R&S FSH3-TV is operated using intuitive menus and soft keys. A rotary knob ensures fast and easy variation of input values or selection of menu items. The result memory of the TV analyzer can store up to 100 measurement results and settings; which can be transferred via USB interface to a PC for further evaluation.
