Brief Description

The R&S®PR100 portable receiver has been specifically designed for radiomonitoring applications in the field. The receiver’s functions and control concept have been optimized for monitoring tasks. In addition, it can be used for a variety of other applications.

The R&S®PR100 operates in a wide frequency range from 9 kHz to 7.5 GHz. Whether used for monitoring emissions, detecting interference or locating miniature transmitters, the receiver always combines high mobility with maximum operating ease. The receiver and the R&S®HE300 active directional antenna together form a compact receiving system. The receiver can also be used in conjunction with other antennas, e.g. broadband omnidirectional antennas.

Features & Benefits

  • Future-ready investment

    • Wide frequency range and outstanding performance
    • Capable of receiving and processing signals of current and future radio services
  • High receiver sensitivity, high signal resolution

    • State-of-the-art digital signal processing for high receiver sensitivity and detection of extremely weak signals, without any loss in processing speed
    • Significantly superior receiver sensitivity and signal resolution (compared with conventional analog receivers)
  • Retrieval of information through demodulation

    • Analog-modulated signals demodulated directly in the receiver; contents audible using headphones or built-in loudspeaker
    • Digitally modulated signals converted to the baseband using I/Q demodulation and stored in the receiver or exported via LAN
    • Online and offline analysis of digitally modulated signals, e.g. with the R&S®GX430 software
  • Detection of pulsed signals and radar emissions

    • Capture of short-duration pulses, such as radar emissions
    • Wide IF bandwidth for analysis of short-duration pulses and pulse packets
  • Monitoring receiver and mobile data memory in a single unit

    • Collected information written directly to the receiver’s built-in SD card
    • Offline analysis of data recording during monitoring
  • Efficient operation via remote control

    • Full remote control via LAN interface (SCPI commands to IEEE 488.2)
    • Efficient, remote receiver operation, e.g. in unattended monitoring stations
    • R&S®PR100-Control remote control software from the R&S®RAMON software family included
  • Battery operation for mobile use

    • Low weight: 3.5 kg including battery
    • Long battery-powered operation: approx. 4 hours
  • Intuitive and simple operation

    • Short learning curve due to straightforward menu structure and simple operation
    • Large 6.5" color display for signal analysis
