Kaltman Creations has added a handheld RF spectrum analyzer to its product line: the Spectran HF4040, which addresses channel selection, interference identification, RF system monitoring, testing and exposure limits. The HF4040 frequency range is from 10 MHz on up to 4 GHz.
In addition to the HF4040’s standard frequency-sweep readings and signal-strength readouts, the unit features display markers that show the three strongest peaks and their associated frequencies during each sweep. There is also a Zoom feature that allows the user to narrow the frequency span down to 100 kHz. The HF4040 will also perform extended data logging and long-term peak-hold recording.
The HF4040 is sold in a system package that includes an aluminum carrying case, SMA full-range antenna, batteries and charger (charger doubles as an AC adaptor), PC software for enhanced visual monitoring, a HyperLOG 700MHz to 2.5GHz precision directional antenna (other directional antennas available) and a mini tri-pod stand. The HF4040 system package is priced for less than $1,400.
