Site Master S820D covering 2 MHz to 20 GHz is an excellent solution for accurate, reliable and convenient on-flightline analysis of microwave transmission line and antenna measurements when tasked with installation, verification, troubleshooting, and repair of radar and microwave communication systems. An "anytime, anywhere" solution designed for the rugged challenges faced by field technicians working with wireless and defense communications systems.
Standard measurement capabilities includes VSWR, return loss, cable loss, and distance-to-fault (DTF) analysis using industry-leading frequency domain reflectometer (FDR) technology. Patented RF interference rejection enables accurate measurements in the presence of high RF activity. Both coaxial and waveguide connections are supported. Line Sweep Tools (LST) is a free data analysis software utility that enables assessment of system trends, problems, and performance in addition to professional report generation.
Optional capabilities include 2 MHz frequency extension, power monitor, N(f) test port connector, 2-port cable loss, and GPS receiver. The 2 MHz frequency extension offers additional frequency coverage beyond the standard 25 MHz starting frequency. The power monitor is available to make power measurements quickly and easily. The 2-port cable loss employs an external CW source for conducting true 2-port cable loss measurements to 20 GHz. The built-in GPS receiver provides location information that is stamped on each trace and saved with archived data.
Broadband Site Master S810D and S820D utilizes 1-port vector error correction solving the most common and the most difficult accuracy problems of field test equipment operation and thus, improves system quality and reduces maintenance expenses. Difficult test specifications are easy to verify. Vector error correction and a simple, friendly user interface within the S810D and S820D further improves the quality and convenience of measurements compared to traditional scalar techniques. Vector error correction also improves the quality of Distance-To-Fault data. Not only is the reflection magnitude more accurate, the waveguide dispersion correction for fault distance (different frequencies travel at different speeds) is also more accurate and repeatable.
The S810D and S820D include PC based data analysis software, soft carrying case, rechargeable battery, AC/DC power supply, ruggedized adapter k(m) to N(f) Anritsu part number 34RKNF50, 12 V automobile cigarette lighter adapter and users guide.
