Our Spectrum VUE-8™ is a next generation spectrum measurement and analysis unit with an integrated 8-port RF switching capability. It is ideal for either local or remote monitoring of multiple feeds and carriers in satellite, cable or terrestrial wireless networks. Spectrum VUE-8 is fully integrated with our NetVue™ Integrated Management System (IMS) and provides real-time remote interfacing, script-based performance monitoring, trend analysis, thumbnail confidence monitoring and more. It can function as an independent spectrum analyzer or can be easily integrated into a larger measurement network.
The Spectrum VUE-8 uses state-of-the-art digital technology and Fast Fourier Transformations (FFT) to make fast and accurate measurements. With a very low noise floor and large dynamic range, it is well-suited to measure any type of satellite-based carrier, including continuous wave (CW), low, medium, and high symbol rate carriers, beacon signals and other carrier monitoring applications. Spectrum VUE-8 accepts all signals from 5 MHz to 3 GHz and input power levels ranging from -110 to +5 dBm. The Resolution Bandwidth (RBW) varies from 1 Hz to 15 MHz. The Spectrum VUE-8 can be connected to an external 10 MHz reference for improved frequency accuracy and stability. All data communications with the Spectrum VUE-8 occurs via Ethernet to the NetVue IMS.
