TS9000/A FM Broadcast Analyser
The TS9000/A is a high performance FM receiver and Modulation
Analyser providing Broadcast measurements. It runs from and is powered by a USB port, allowing on-site or mobile monitoring. The unit samples the Multiplex signal at 240kHz at 12bits precision. This data is passed
via the USB cable to the PC, where all measurements and calculations are performed in Windows software. Modulation Power is calculated with 32bit floating-point precision. The band covered is 87.5 to 107.9MHz in
10kHz steps, with a software switchable attenuator for high signal strength areas.
FFT Spectrum Analyser:
The unit includes a precision base-band FFT Spectrum Analyser covering 10Hz to 100kHz with a
range of 80dB and a resolution of 20Hz. This can be used to inspect the Multiplex signal or as a stand-alone audio analyser using the external BNC input. Various sample windows can be applied i.e. Hanning, Hamming,
Blackman-Harris etc, providing a versatile measurement instrument.
