The Grand Master of Handheld S-Parameters—VNA Master (5 kHz to 6 GHz)

The title, Grand Master, suggests skill, experience, accomplishment, recognition and "Best in Class". Anritsu's Handheld Master Instrumentation Product Line is all of those, based on 8 generations of field experience in innovative field test products. The VNA Master, likewise, has some years of field applications, providing unique Vector Network Analysis + Spectrum Analysis (see MS2036/8C) in remote locations with enhanced measurement options that enlarge its usefulness to maintenance personnel.

The VNA Master MS2026C offers the industry's first 12-term error correction algorithm in a handheld vector network analyzer. With a typical measurement speed of 350 μsec per point, it is ideally suited for tuning filters in the field where multiple S-parameters often interact during tuning. Using a 3-receiver architecture, the MS2026C can measure and display all 2-port S-parameters at once with a one-time connection to the Device Under Test (DUT).

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.

VNA Master also serves in new high technology applications such as radome/dielectric tests in the field. Its VNA error-correction functions vital to innovative test fixtures for dielectrics, laminates, ferrites, lossy paints, and more, offered by manufacturers such as Damaskos, Inc. Another novel application is the age-old problem of fault location in aircraft and shipboard wire cable bundles that snake through bulkheads and compartments.
