BK Precision 2658A 50 kHz - 8.5 GHz Handheld Spectrum Analyzer

Our Price: $10,295.00

Quantity in Stock:1
Product Code: BK-2658A


B&K Precision’s 2658A is a compact, light weight and cost/effective spectrum analyzer for quick and precise signal investigations, especially away from the bench. At a weight of only 4 pounds (1.8 kg), the 2658A is by far the lightest full/featured spectrum analyzer available, yet it delivers performance and features comparable to a full/size bench spectrum analyzer and can operate up to 4 hours on a single battery.

With its ease of use, measurement flexibility and unmatched portability, the 2658A spectrum analyzer is an indispensible tool for engineers and technicians who conduct field measurements in the 50 kHz to 8.5 GHz range.

  • Impressive 4 hour battery life; easy/to/replace rechargeable Lithium/Ion battery
  • Fast sweep speed, minimum 10 ms, to help locate and identify elusive, transient interference signals
  • DANL (displayed average noise level) of /127 dBm
  • Large easy/to/read color display, 640 x 480 resolution
  • Measurement functions: channel/adjacent channel power, occupied bandwidth, electric and magnetic field strength
