Options and Accessories


The Communication Tester for signal analysis and repair

The R8000C is a portable Communication Tester for multiple analogue and digital communication standards, integrating a wide range of measurement instruments with those functions that you really need for service and repair. The measurements can be observed on a large and bright display (800 x 600) - due to it can be used in the direct sunlight as well. It is designed for radios & other RF-products up to 3 GHz and a maximum output power of 150 watt.

The Communication System Analyzer supports analogue as well as digital radio systems like the integrated DMR (Digital Mobile Radio), an ETSI standard for digital radio systems. Further digital options are dPMR, APCO P25, NXDN and TETRA.

Various other options like distance to fault can be supplemented and a variety of laboratory and field applications are configurable.

The instrument offers the option of an automatic adjustment of DMR (Motorola), NXDN (Kenwood NX), HARRIS XG-75 and analogue terminals.

Further meausurement modes are:

  • Sensitive Measurement Receive

  • Modulation Scope

  • Frequency Error Meter

  • Distortion Meter

  • SINAD Meter

  • 5/6 Tone Paging (CCITT / ZVEI / Two-Tone Paging)
