Brief Description

  • The R&S®FMAx modulation analyzers combine the functionalities of several measuring instruments in a single box (RF counter, power meter, voltmeter, audio analyzer, distortion meter, FM stereo decoder). The R&S®FMAx modulation analyzers are suitable for measurements in the field of broadcasting (e.g. on AM and FM transmitters) and radiotelephony as well as in the calibration of signal generators.

    The traditional analog techniques of amplitude, frequency and phase modulation retain their important position in all branches of communication despite the increasing use of digital modulation. The concept of the FMx family - modulation analysis for today's requirements - calls for measurement performance weIl beyond that of conventional modulation meters. The predecessor FAM from Rohde&Schwarz was a step in the right direction. Through the innovative FMx family with its range of application-specific models, this development has reached a new peak. The goals of this new design were:

    • improved accuracy of all measurements
    • higher measurement rates
    • improved processing and presentation of the results
    • optimization of the model range from the application point of view and
    • retention of the basic concepts of the predecessor family FAM.

    A standardized interface (the IEEE-488 bus) for applications in automatic test systems was just as important as a weIl-defined family of instruments for applications in stationary and mobile radiocommunication, in sound and TV broadcasting and in many navigation systems. Measurements on FM stereo signals are a major area of interest. Beyond the classic parameters such as modulation depth, deviation and carrier frequency, comprehensive analysis of the interfering modulation and the baseband source signal is provided for. Among the many other tests catered for are precise measurements of the carrier power and the transient behaviour of the RF carrier.

  • FMx family overview
    Designation Type Characteristics
    Modulation Analyzer 50 kHz to 1360 MHz FMA Universal analyzer for AM, FM and Phase Modulation; high precision and extremely low phase noise
    Modulation Analyzer 50 kHz to 1360 MHz FMAB Analyzer for VHF FM stereo broadcast signals; with decoder, weighting filters and SINAD/distortion meter
    Selective Modulation Analyzer 5 MHz to 1000 MHz FMAS Off-air measurements on VHF FM and TV dual-sound transmitters, modulation analysis of VHF FM and TV sound signals, FM stereo relay reception; extremely high sensitivity and receive quality
  • Modulation Analyzer FMA

    FMA combines the functions of several measuring instruments all in one unit. It allows fast and accurate analysis of all parameters of modulated signals. Thanks to its versatility, it can also be used as an RF counter, power meter, voltmeter, psophometer, distortion meter, audiogenerator and as an FM stereo decoder. FMA is suitable for measurements in the field of broadcasting (eg on AM and FM transmitters) as well as radio-telephony and in the calibration of signal generators. It can be upgraded for many other measurement tasks.

  • Modulation Analyzer FMAB

    FMAB has been especially designed for the analysis of FM stereo broadcast signals. Its measurement tasks include comprehensive analysis of VHF transmitters, channel transposers and VHF/baseband converters. The built-in stereo decoder with all its analysis functions can be separately used via the rear-panel input so that measurements on FM receivers and stereo coders are also possible.

  • Selective Modulation Analyzer FMAS

    FMAS combines the characteristics of a universal modulation analyzer with those of an FM stereo/TV dual-sound receiver:

    • RF/IF selection for 5 to 1000 MHz can be switched on when required
    • Selective audio analyzer
