Remote Spectrum Monitor™ MS27201A User Guide : General Information : Instrument Description
 
Instrument Description
The MS27201A RSM is a synthesizer‑based spectrum monitor that provides quick and accurate measurement results. The instrument is designed for monitoring, measuring, and analyzing signal environments. Measurements can easily be made by using the main instrument functions: frequency, span, amplitude, and bandwidth. A full range of marker capabilities (such as peak, center, and delta functions) are provided for faster, more comprehensive analysis of displayed signals. Upper and lower multi‑segmented limit lines are available to create quick, simple pass/fail measurements.
Time and date stamping of measurement data is automatic. The internal memory provides for the storage and recall of up to 1000 measurement setups and up to 1000 traces. Measurements and setups can be stored internally on the instrument or on a USB flash drive for later recall.
Note 
Not all after-market USB drives are compatible with Remote Spectrum Monitor. The USB drive must contain a single partition using FAT32 format.
