THE R8000C

THE INDUSTRY STANDARD SINCE 2009

The R8000C is the third generation of theindustry-standard LMR communications system analyzer first shipped in 2009. Weighing just 14 pounds, the R8000 is the only test set to offer complete benchtop functionality in a portable, software-defined package. Firmware upgrades are available free for the life of the unit, so the R8000’s capabilities only expand over time. The R8000 tests every major digital LMR protocol, is highly expandable, and boasts the best spectral purity in the industry. In fact, its RF specification meet or surpass those of instruments costing thousands of dollars more. All which explains why the R8000 has become the preferred LMR test tool for thousands of radio technicians worldwide.

R8000C the next generation of the industry standard since 2009. A lightweight solution

SUPERIOR SPECTRUM ANALYZER

The R8000C comes equipped with a spectrum analyzer comparable to those found on stand-alone instruments costing as much or more.With a noise floor well below -140 dBm at narrow spans, super-fast signal acquisition, 4 markers (2 standard), and an available variable vertical scale down to 1 dB per division, the R8000C is the ideal tool for tracking and measuring elusive interfering signals.

UPGRADABLE AND EXPANDABLE

The software-based architecture of the R8000C lets you add software options and upgrades in the field. So if your needs change down the line, simply order the feature or protocol you need and enable it by entering a 16digit option key using the front panel keypad.

 

DUAL

DISPLAY

Our unique Dual Display allows you to view the RF spectrum analyzer and modulation scope at the same time, giving you the ability to analyze RF characteristics of the carrier signal and recovered audio from the same screen.  Complete functionality of each instrument is available in Dual Display mode, and al associated measurements are displayed. With Dual Display, you no longer need to go back and forth from the spectrum analyzer to the modulation scope to see everything you need – it’s all on one screen! Included with the Enhanced Spectrum Analyzer option R8-ESA

HIGH PERFORMANCE TRACKING GENERATOR

Our Tracking Generator option provides an integrated instrument that sets up the RF Generator in a sweeping mode that is lock stepped with the Spectrum Analyzer. The tracker’s extraordinary dynamic range and response time delivers an invaluable tool for measuring and servicing RF filtering and combining networks like IF filters and Duplexers. The R8000’s low Spectrum Analyzer noise floor, FFT processing, and broad selection of display and marker functions assure quick and accurate measurements. Antenna return loss and VSWR measurements can be made

LOW PHASE NOISE AND MONITOR & CONTROL INTERFACE FOR AUTOMATED TEST

The exceptional phase noise performance of the R8000C signal generator, makes it suitable for manufacturing and other high-performance applications. FREEDOM Monitor and Control (M&C) Interface consists of proprietary commands as well as support of IEEE standard equipment ID query for automating manufacturing test processes and procedures.
