– Ideal for various environments such as R&D laboratories, education, manufacturing and the home-lab of the electronics enthusiast. A Rigol DSA800 series spectrum analyser, Rigol S1210 EMI pre-compliance test PC software and the TEKBOX range of EMC pre-compliance test equipment (near-field probes, LISNs and TEM cells) form a powerful and affordable system for EMC pre-compliance tests – An effective de-risking strategy, potentially saving a small fortune and project delays due to re-tests at an EMC Test House. Choose a Rigol DSA800 spectrum analyser with built-in tracking generator and you’ll have the capability of making (forward and reverse) transmission measurements (e.g. Measuring the frequency response of filters or amplifiers). Add a Rigol VSWR Bridge and you’d have the additional capability of measuring input or output return loss (e.g. Impedance matching and antenna tuning). The Rigol DSA800 series spectrum analysers have several other options available to enhance the capability and user experience even further. Whatever configuration you choose, we think that you’ll be impressed by the powerful combination of quality, performance, functionality and value for money. Features: Frequency range from 9kHz to 1.5GHz Built-in tracking generator Displayed average noise level (DANL) <-155dBm/Hz typ. with preamplifier on Minimum resolution bandwidth (RBW) 10Hz Phase noise <-80dBc/Hz @10kHz offset Level measurement uncertainty <1.5dB nom. AM/FM demodulation function 8″ (800 x 480) high-definition display Linear and logarithmic frequency axis Connectivity: LAN(LXI), USB Host & Device PictBridge support Compact size and light weight Supplied with… UK & European mains leads, quick guide Optional PC software… Ultra Spectrum, S1210 EMI Pre-Compliance Test Other options include… VSWR bridge (1MHz to 3.2GHz), EMI filter & quasi-peak detector, advanced measurement functions, signal seamless capture, USB to GPIB module, rack mount kit, soft carry bag, RF transmitter demo kit, RF receiver demo kit, RCL standard calibration

The SDS1000X-E Series employs a new generation of SPO (Super Phosphor Oscilloscope) technology that provides excellent signal fidelity and performance. The system noise is also lower than similar products in the industry. It comes with a minimum vertical input range of 500 uV/div, an innovative digital trigger system with high sensitivity and low jitter, and a waveform capture rate of 400,000 frames/sec (sequence mode) The SDS1000X-E also employs a 256-level intensity grading display function and a colour temperature display mode not found in other models in this class. SIGLENT’s latest oscilloscopes offering supports multiple powerful triggering modes including serial bus triggering. Serial decoding is free and includes IIC, SPI, UART, CAN and LIN. History waveform recording and sequential triggering enable extended waveform recording and analysis. Another powerful addition is the new 1 Mpt FFT math function that gives the SDS1000X-E very high frequency resolution when observing signal spectra. The new design also includes a hardware co-processor that delivers measurements quickly and accurately. The features and performance of SIGLENT’s new SDS1000X-E series cannot be matched anywhere else in this price class. Intelligent trigger: Edge, Slope, Pulse, Width, Window, Runt, Interval, Timeout (Dropout), and Pattern Free serial bus triggering and decoding: IIC, SPI, UART, RS232, CAN and LIN Video triggers and supports HDTV Low background noise and 500 μV/div to 10V / div voltage scales 10 types of one-button shortcuts, supports Auto setup, Default, Cursors, Measure, Roll, History, Display/Persist, Clear Sweep, Zoom and Print Segmented acquisition (Sequence) mode, dividing the maximum record length into multiple segments (up to 80,000), according to trigger conditions set by the user, with a vert small dead time segment to capture the qualifying event History waveform record (History) function, the maximum recorded waveform length is 80,000 frames Automatic measurement function on 38 parameters, supports Statistics, Gating measurement, Math measurement, History measurement, and Ref measurement 1 Mpts FFT True measurement and Math can use all 14 Mpts of memory The preset key can be customised for user settings or factory “defaults” Security Erase mode Highspeed hardware based Pass/Fail function Lage 7-inch TFT-LCD display with 800 * 480 resolution Multiple interfaces types: USB Host, USB Device (USB-TMC), LAN (VXI-11), Pass/Fail, Trigger Out Supports SCPI remote control commands Multi-language display and embedded help Browser control/onboard webpage for software free monitoring (4 channel models only)

…Get bhi DSP Noise Cancellation Product!

Read more/less

bhi manufacture a range of DSP noise cancelling products to suit most setups. If you use an extension speaker then one of our in-line DSP noise cancelling units would be suitable. The fully featured Dual In-line is an excellent choice with a range of connection options. Output options are a 7W mono speaker, stereo line level or 3.5mm stereo headphone. The smaller Compact In-Line module is more suitable for portable use with headphones, but it will drive a small passive speaker. Both these in-line units require a 12V DC supply and the Compact In-line unit can also be powered by 2 x AA batteries. If you suffer from hearing loss then maybe one of our parametric equaliser units would be a good choice. We offer two basic versions, EQ20/EQ20B. Both have 10W audio and parametric equalisation and are suitable if you don’t suffer with too much noise but want to fine tune your receive audio to suit your own hearing. There are two versions with 10W audio, parametric equalisation and bhi DSP noise cancelling technology, EQ20-DSP/EQ20B-DSP. These units are great if you suffer with noise problems and weak signals as they will help to clear up your noisy receive audio making it clearer and more intelligible, which you can then fine tune even further with the parametric equaliser. If you don’t have an extension speaker then one of our standalone amplified DSP noise cancelling speakers would be a good choice. The new NES10-2MK4 is a compact DSP noise cancelling speaker which incorporates the latest high performance bhi DSP noise cancelling technology. It has simple controls on the top of the speaker and has a quality 5W audio amplifier with DSP noise cancelling from 8 to 40dB. The other option is the larger DESKTOP base station 2-way cabinet style DSP noise cancelling speaker. This speaker comprises a 4" bass driver and a 1" tweeter unit with a 10W amplified bhi DSP noise cancelling unit. It has two intuitive rotary controls which make it very easy to use and set up to your own operating preferences.
