B&K Precision’s Model 2652 Handheld 3.3 GHz Spectrum Analyzer Wins Product of the Year Award from EN-Genius Network

YORBA LINDA, CA, February 27, 2009 -- B&K Precision is proud to announce that the model 2652 Handheld 3.3 GHz Spectrum Analyzer with Tracking Generator was awarded 2008 “Product of the year” from the EN-genius network (www.en-genius.net).  The popular engineering site recognized the 2652 for “Best Price versus Performance Factor in Handheld Instrumentation”.

The 2652 is a compact, cost-effective, handheld, PC-compatible 3.3 GHz Spectrum Analyzer with a tracking generator added, that delivers the performance and features of a full-size bench top spectrum analyzer.  The 2652 is part of a family of three handheld spectrum analyzers: Model 2650 is identical to the 2652 but without a tracking generator and model 2658 covers a frequency range of 50 kHz - 8.5 GHz.

In the review, the editorial team at EN-Genius stated that compared to other competitive offerings, “B&K Precision's instrument may fill the bill in a cost effective manner. Indeed, that's historically been the case with B&K gear.”

“Both the 3.3-GHz handheld and the 8.5-GHz counterpart's data sheets reflect good specs. As such, if treated with care and respect, you should be able to effectively characterize many 2-port RF devices using these menu-driven instruments. Either the B&K Model 2652 or the Model 2658 should be just about all that's needed to cover Bluetooth, W-CDMA, CDMA, PDC, PHS, GSM, and wireless LAN frequencies, making reasonably accurate and repeatable measurements.”

The product of the year awards are selected by the editors of EN-Genius, based on the product’s “strong technical merit, design innovation and marketability”.
