The NS-1 is a handheld broadband noise generator. It generates a wide, even RF noise signal that is used for testing network components and aligning a building’s coaxial cable network.
By injecting the NS – 1’s signal into the network or DUT at Point A, a technician can determine the network’s or DUT’s frequency response by connecting a spectrum analyzer or signal level meter (such as Applied Instrument’s Super Buddy, AI Turbo S2, or VSAT 7850 meter) at Point B. This frequency response measurement indicates the network’s or DUT’s flatness or ability to conduct RF signal at any specific measured frequency between 5 – 2150 MHz.
