Key facts

  • Leading platform for regulatory testing of devices in ISM bands
  • Consistent RF tests from R&D to conformance
  • Covers regulatory test from ETSI and FCC for wireless devices
  • Reliability proven in hundreds of test systems 
  • Software platform for maximum efficiency through automation

Most automated regulatory test system on the market

The R&S®TS8997 is the best-known wireless measurement system on the market for  regulatory testing in line with ETSI and FCC standards:

  • EN 300 328
  • EN 301 893
  • EN 303 687
  • EN 300 220-2
  • EN 302 502
  • FCC §15.247
  • FCC §15.407
The R&S®OSP-B157W8 PLUS 7.5 GHz module with up to eight channels is the core of the system and uses a printed RF switch board in solid-state relay (SSR) architecture. It allows flexible operation of the connected DUT (up to eight ports) for power measurements, signal conditioning via the integrated attenuators, couplers and combiners, RF switching to the measuring instruments in combination with the R&S®OSP-B157WX up to 40 GHz and is controlled by R&S®WMS32 software.


Features & benefits

Automation for ISM Band Devices Certification

Automate tests for maximum efficiency up to 7.5GHz ISM Band Devices

The R&S®TS8997 measures technologies typically used in
wideband wireless devices, i.e. devices with a radio interface in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands:

  • WLAN IEEE802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax
  • Bluetooth®
  • Wireless video transmission
  • Radio remote control
  • IoT devices
The control software can use path switching and system instrument remote control to automatically perform measurements for different test cases. Automatic result evaluation and reporting for quick and successful measurements.
