GW Instek now extends its spectrum Analyzer product series to 3GHz up. As a new member, GSP-830 inherits the advanta ges of high performance, low cost, easy to use and light-weight portability of GWinstek products. Moreover, its fabulous low noise floor greatly increases the measurement range; advanced user interface brings you significant visual distinction; rich measurement functions make your work simple and easy. GSP-830 offers you the greatest performance-price value in the market.
Wide Measurement Range
With GW Instek state-of-the-art design, GSP-830's outstanding noise floor level, -152dBm/Hz @600MH, presents extreme sensitivity for picking up weak signals. Along with GAP-810 10dB-gain preamplifier, GSP-830 reaches the equivalent noise floor level as low as 162dBm/Hz, thus widely extend the measurement range.
GSP-830 can be an automatic test instrument without any external computer control. Users can define their own macros through a keypad on the front panel and store them into 10 Sequence sets. The sequence includes the steps of pause, so the running sequence could be stopped for measurement result observation then continue when necessary. Repeat or Single run modes can be selected based on the application requirements.
Portable Power Operations
Equipped with two packs of Li-ion battery, GSP-830 could maintain its normal operation for more than 3 hours. The DC operation mode also allows GSP-830 to be powered by a 12-Volt power supply or the power of cigar-lighter inside the automobile. The large-size internal memory of GSP-830 helps store measured traces, setup information, limit lines and user-defined macros. Along with the USB feature to adopt the popular flash drive for mass storage, GSP-830 is a convenient tool for the service engineers. With only 6kg light weight and compact size, GSP-830 well fits into outdoor applications.
Advanced User Interface
The user-oriented interface design of GSP-830 gives you the pleasure of handling a complicated job with ease. A highresolution 6.4 color TFT LCD provides high quality image display. Multiple traces with different colors, as defined by the user, facilitate the visual recognition of small disparities at a glance. Split window mode delivers the value for monitoring two different frequency bands on the same display at the same time. GSP-830 under this split-window mode acts like a product of two-spectrum-analyzers-in-one.
The front panel USB host connector supports the ubiquitous flash drive for various transactions, including setup info, trace data and display images. In addition, it also supports the direct screen printout for the printers with USB ports. The rear panel USB On-The-Go, or OTG, connector plays the dual roles of both host and slave. As a slave, it gives accessibility to the remote control from PC. The display image of GSP-830 could be sent directly to the external monitors through a VGA port on the rear panel. This gives convenience for the remote monitoring at EMI test sites or the circumstances needing presentation or group discussion.
Free PC Software for GSP-830/GSP-827
Through RS-232 or USB connection, EagleShot transfers the measurement data from GSP-830 to the PC. Users can print out the data in graphical format directly or save them into text file for further data analysis. With EagleShot software, the Limit Line setting on the PC could be done either through capturing the setting from GSP-830 or through the Limit Line editing by the user at the PC end. For marking and reading the measured signals on the PC screen, users can place markers to the peaks of their interest on the display, as easily as they do on GSP-830. The new EagleShot PC software supports both GSP-830 and GSP-827 in various application fileds.
Instek GSP-830, with much elevation on the frequency domain technology, is positioned as an accurate and powerful tool for RF measurements in the industrial fields. The 3GHz Frequency Band and the low Noise Floor of -117dBm greatly expands the GSP-830 dynamic range to a level that meets most of the critical measurement requirements in various market sectors. The high speed signal processing of GSP-830 not only gives a very fast sweep rate of the spectrum but also plays the role as the engine for powerful measurement capabilities. The Auto Measurements of Channel Power, Bandwidth and Phase-Jitter related parameters of a RF system or device could be done with ease. The Split-Window enables the dual measurements with dual displays of a signal under two different setting environments. The A B C Traces provide three live measurement results, such as Clear & Write, Max Hold, and Average traces, of a signal in the same spectrum at the same time. The Go/NoGo function facilitates the fast measurements in the Manufacturing and Component Sourcing fields, whereas the Auto Sequence provides a mean to automatically run through a sequence of tests based on the various system settings of the user's test routines.
The remarkable USB features support the Image, Data & Setting storage through flash drive and the direct printout of screen image through a color printer. Being an USB Device, GSP-830 can be remotely controlled by PC through the USB OTG port on the rear panel. The 6.4 TFT LCD with 640 x 480 resolution enhances the effectiveness of GSP-830 powerful measurements due to its bright, colorful & high-resolution display. The Auto-Set function, 10Markers (with 5 pairs) measurement and Multi-Language Menu all together provide a very thoughtful user interface. The light-weight & compact design plus DC/Battery power operation give field service engineers the best portability benefit.
The optional 9k/120kHz RBW filters plus Average and Quasi-Peak Detections fulfill the demand for EMI Test compliances. The function of Peak Table, listing the first ten peaks based on the ranking of either amplitude or frequency, provides EMI Engineers with a very convenient tool. With optional preamplifier GAP-801, GSP-830 becomes a very good EMI pre-tester to help electronic designers catch potentially critical signals prior to the product EMI certification test. With 3GHz Tracking Generator, GSP-830 well accommodates the applications for System & Component characteristic verifications. The optional 1ppm stability and the optional AM/FM Demodulator extend the GSP-830 application support to the niche areas. The accessories, such as pre-amplifier, CATV test kit and RLB test kit, are all available as GSP-830 options to meet the requirements with various applications.
The free PC software of GSP-830, EagleShot, can be accessed and downloaded from GW Instek website. Through RS-232 or USB connection, EagleShot transfers the measurement data from GSP-830 to the PC. Users can print out the data in graphical format directly or save them into text file for further data analysis. With EagleShot software, the Limit Line setting on the PC could be done either through capturing the setting from GSP-830 or through the Limit Line editing by the user at the PC end. For marking and reading the measured signals on the PC screen, users can place markers to the peaks of their interest on the display, as easily as they do on GSP-830.
