Brief Description

The R&S®EM550 is ideally suited for spectrum monitoring in line with ITU recommendations.

The R&S®EM550 is prepared to meet any future demands in the field of receiver and analyzer technology for the purpose of frequency spectrum and signal analysis. The receiver is softwarecompatible with the R&S®EB200/ESMB family, thus providing an easy way to upgrade existing radiomonitoring systems.

The R&S®VHF/UHF DIGITAL WIDEBAND RECEIVER EM550 VHF/UHF Digital Wideband Receiver covers the wide frequency range from 20 MHz to 3.6 GHz. High level mixers and amplifiers make sure that even in critical scenarios the intermodulation products are extremely low. Additionally the receiver features comprehensive preselection to reduce the signal sumload on the input. Local oscillators with low phase noise are the basis for optimum detection of weak signals in the close vicinity of strong emitters.

A large number of IF bandwidths is available to process the various signals with optimum signal-to-noise ratio. To ensure maximum quality, modern digital signal processing is used throughout.

The receiver is equipped with digital IF filters with 23 different bandwidth settings from 150 Hz to 10 MHz. Demodulation with analog and digital video data as well as digital base band data can be performed over this wide range of IF filters.

Many interfaces, both digital and analog, provide nearly unlimited processing of the gained data.
