Anritsu have added MS2026B and MS2028B models to their VNA Master family. The MS2026B and MS2028B handheld 2-port Vector network analysers meet RF and microwave cable and antenna analysis requirements with a frequency coverage from 5kHz to 6GHz and 20GHz, respectively.
The B series VNA Master provides broad coverage for handheld S-parameter measurement solutions and offers field engineers or technicians fast tuning speed, 12–term error corrections and a user interface. Eight available measurement options, such as Internal Bias Tees and Vector Voltmeter functions expand the utility in the field.
The new B series VNA Master features 12-term error corrections for precise 2-port measurements of cables, filters, duplexers and isolators. The four S-parameter measurements, S11, S21, S22 and S12 can be made with a single connection using the underlying auto-reversing architecture. With a 65 dB dynamic range to 20 GHz, the B series VNA Master offers accurate measurements of magnitude and phase for applications requiring mobility. The B series VNA Master is light in weight (4.4 kg), rugged or battery-powered and is suitable for field engineers.
With 750usec per point sweep speed, the B series VNA Master offers fast vector network analysis measurements. The three-receiver architecture and fast sweep speed supports real-time tuning requirements for RF and microwave components on site. A flexible user interface allows the four S-parameter measurements to be displayed simultaneously on the daylight viewable 8.4-inch, full colour, TFT display. The large VNA Master display can be user-formatted into single, dual, tri or quad partitions, including overlays.
