FIXED: Wrong Marker Limit Calculation

Hi Aaronia team:

We are testing the brand new Spectran V6 with RTSA-Suite PRO
v1.5.152.8418 and have found a bug in the markers whenever we make a
spectrum sweep.

We measure in dBµV/m² , it seems to be related with the unit we use in
the spectrum chart.

We include a screen capture to illustrate the bug:

Our "Limits" line is defined by the E EN55011 Class B QP at 3m. That is
a line 40dBµV/m² up to 230MHz and 47dBµV/m² from 230MHz to 1GHz, as you
can see drawn in the chart.

But notice the marker in the picture now found at frequency 842,9MHz,
its measured power is 28,23dBµV/m², lower than the 47dBµV/m² limit, so
"Delta Limits" should read 47-28,23 = 18,77dB below the limits (in green
or white), but is instead shown as red 1,20dB that means over the
"Limits" line.

This is a very important bug when trying to print the results of a test
as the distance that is shown to the limits is completely out of reality.

Could this be fixed ?

Fixed with RTSA-Suite PRO v1.5.152.8777

 

When I measure the signal sent by satellite modulation and demodulation, When Span selects 1/2, The measured value is correct. When span is full, The spectrum jumps and the value is wrong. What's the reason ?Can you help me.Thank you very much.

Simply don't use the center in full mode (only for super small signals) since you are measuring at the DC or use a bigger RBW (lower FFT).
