Direct Replacement for TEK 1705A

Designed for satellite news gathering, the MSNG is an excellent, cost effective upgrade to the discontinued Tektronix 1705A with a feature set that is second to none, giving the Satellite Technician a very useful tool for finding and peaking on satel- lites. The MSNG is not only a spectrum analyzer but also a carrier monitor. The MSNG also offers L.O. Frequency Offsets which al- lows the operator to display the frequency in L-Band, C-Band, Ku-Band, or any custom band needed.

Improved Performance & Specifications

The SNG is designed for the measurement of communications and broadcast carriers, making uplink, downlink, L-band carriers, IF, and 10MHz reference signals easy to monitor and measure. The MSNG provides excellent frequency and amplitude accuracy along with RBW selection from 10kHz to 1MHz. This is required to allow viewing and monitoring of small Telemetry, Tracking, Command Systems (TT&C), and data carriers found in many satellite communications mar- kets today. The front panel can control Frequency & Span with settings for Fine, Medium, and Coarse to allow the operator to dial into the carrier and control the display as needed. The use of persistence, averaging, or waterfall tools allow periodic signals like TDMA or noisy carriers to be more easily detected.

Versatile Remote Control Software

The MSNG can provide discrete remote monitoring and control from anywhere in the world. The MSNG is monitored and controlled using the Avcom Remote Control Software EVO-GUI via USB, or Ethernet. The EVO-GUI has an intuitive user interface that is easy to use with no special training required. Up to sixteen windows can be displayed at one time. The Avcom GUI will run on the WINDOWS OS. The GUI is preconfigured for actual remote analyzers we keep online so that you can try the software before purchasing. Please Contact Sales for more information on getting the software.
