Software Applications

By purchasing any of Spectrum Compact devices you also get a Spectrum Manager PC software for free. This software was designed as a complementary addition to our Spectrum Compact devices, that allows working in both ways – with saved measurement data and direct control of the unit itself. The Spectrum Manager can be used in both real-time (together with a Spectrum Compact device) and offline modes, and provides you with a variety of functions, such as: PiB (Power in Band), overlay and min/max hold. Spectrum Manager software gives additional value to Spectrum Compact users by improving the use of current applications and offering additional ones.

SAF spent a lot of effort to make the Spectrum Compact a quick and easy-to-use tool. Want to try it out now? Take the Spectrum Compact for a test drive with the new online emulator.

Application Highlights

Designed specifically for comfortable outdoor use by microwave network engineers, Spectrum Compact can also be used for various applications in VSAT, cellular network environment, ranging from signal monitoring to troubleshooting and interference detection. The Spectrum Compact can be used for high precision detection of existing interference on installed paths or available radio channels. Data logging of all spectrum scans is available with the Spectrum Compact device, and enhanced data processing and analysis are provided by SAF Tehnika designed PC software for your laptop
