R8600 RF Analyser and Radio Test Hub

Radio Test Hub for Production Test, 1 MHz to 1 GHz (250 kHz to 1 GHz typical); Optional to 3 GHz
SKU: R8600
Product Description

The Freedom R8600 Radio Test Hub is designed to meet the demanding requirements of RF production environments. Able to withstand 150 Watts of continuous RF power input, the R8600 was explicitly engineered to provide a cost-effective solution for 24/7 manufacturing use. Once deployed, it requires minimal operator intervention beyond making the physical RF connection.

The Radio Test Hub provides reliable, easy-to-operate testing for manufacturers of LMR radios and other RF devices. It operates without an embeddeddisplay to make efficient use of manufacturing rack space in an ATE environment, and features an expansive suite of scripting options including Freedom's native Monitor & Control language and HP8920 emulation. Powered by Software Defined Radio architecture, the R8600 is ideal as both an upgrade to enable testing of modern digital radio technologies and for the production of analogue radios and RF devices.

Two units can fit side-by-side in a standard 19” rack. The units stand less than 4RU high. A backpack accessory is also available for portable use.
