The VNA Master MS2035B with added Spectrum Analyzer is compact in size and high in performance field rugged Vector Network Analyzer. Providing true vector error corrected S-parameter data, this analyzer is easy to use with large, high resolution (800 x 600) touch screen display, and depending on the model and options, capable of much more than just VNA measurements. Industry leading DANL and Phase Noise performance. Standard capability includes 1-Path, 2-Port VNA measurements, with a standard, user selectable GUI mode which allows the user to choose between the standard VNA S-parameter format or a more simplified Cable and Antenna analyzer format known as “Field Mode”. Both modes deliver the same high level of measurement precision and accuracy which the VNA Master products are well known for. Additional options extend functionality even further, making the VNA Master much more versatile in the field and eliminating the need to carry multiple instruments.
RF engineers and technicians in the field provide installation and maintenance support for aerospace, defense, and general purpose communication systems around the world. These might typically include radars on Navy ships, communications on Army vehicles, flight-line test on Air Force and commercial jets. They support VHF Omni-directional Range (VOR) antennas in radio navigational systems globally. They will be routinely faced with a wide variety of system elements that can cause failures in the overall system: antennas, cables, filters, multiplexers, amplifiers, isolators, circulators, switches, and other sophisticated elements. The Compact VNA Master, with its new touch-screen display provides the best intuitive measurement control in field diagnostic conditions.
VNA Master, now with standard distance domain (requires firmware version 1.20 or greater), also serves in new high technology applications such as a novel application is the age-old problem of fault location in aircraft and shipboard wire cable bundles that snake through bulkheads and compartments.
