Rigol Technologies, leading instrument manufacturer, now adds more value for EMC Pre-compliance / advanced users, by including a free firmware enhancement. RIGOL now packs even more capability into the advanced DSA1000 spectrum analysers so customers get EMI Filter and Quasi Peak Detector option as well as the advanced measurement kit as standard. This enhancement now allows users to perform their own EMC Pre Compliance tests up to 3 GHz. Users say the cost of a fully compliant EMC test instrument according to CISPR 16-1-1 will break the bank, and the find RIGOL’s solution to be only slightly shy of CISPR performance, so ideal for necessary pre-tests. DSA1030 and DSA1030A models are available with optional 3 GHz tracking generator and an optional VSWR bridge, so they can also be used as a scalar network analyser. A built-in pre-amplifier allows up to -148 dBm Displayed Average Noise Level (DANL), and with advanced standard functions like power measurement, Harmonic Distortion or TOI the DSA1030A analysers are ideal instruments for powerful and versatile high frequency measurements. The use of a digital IF, which is standard for all Rigol spectrum analysers, helps minimize errors due to filter switching and reference level uncertainties; display errors suffered by traditional analogue IF designs when they switch between log and linear amplitude are minimised too. Today’s new freebies, previously sold for £400+ and now added by Telonic, include EMI Filter & Quasi Peak Detector and the integrated Advanced Measurement Kit making the DSA1030A-TG the ideal choice for pre compliance tests of boards, devices and components. Customers can now troubleshoot and test designs on their bench without having to schedule and pay every time at a full compliance lab. Pre testing like this is increasingly popular with engineers to stay within the EU-wide regulations for EMC during the design phase and avoids very expensive re-designs, reduces development time and accelerates your time-to-market. Doug Lovell, Sales Director with Telonic Ltd adds “RIGOL has already proven advantages in countless DSA applications… these new offers mean even better price-performance for our RF/EMC clients.” Brand new offers and prices are also announced today by UK Distributor Telonic at www.RIGOL-uk.co.uk and VSWR bridges can now be had with more functionality too.
