This manual provides service and maintenance information for the Anritsu ShockLine MS46522A/24A Vector Network Analyzers. The information includes product description, performance verification procedures, parts removal and replacement procedures, and troubleshooting information
This quick start guide provides a brief overview of the installation and use of ShockLine Verification Kits and the 2300-560-R Performance Verification Software (PVS) with ShockLine Series VNAs.
Quick Start Guide
The MS46522A is part of the ShockLine family of Vector Network Analyzers from Anritsu. It is a low-cost, 2U high, 2-port VNA series available in two frequency ranges: 50 kHz to 4.5 GHz and 50 kHz to 8.5 GHz. It is capable of measuring s-parameters and time domain characteristics of
passive RF devices.
The series supports SCPI command programming and has software driver support for the most common programming environments. The MS46522A use industry standard LAN communications for robust remote control in test applications. ShockLine VNAs provide a powerful graphical user interface for manual testing of devices. The full-featured user interface is enabled by attaching a (user-supplied) touchscreen monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
This document provides detailed specifications for the MS46522A Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) and related options.
This manual provides information for remote operation of the ShockLine MS46522A and MS46524A Series
VNAs using commands sent from an external controller via Ethernet. It includes the following:
A general description of bus data transfer and control functions
A listing of the IEEE 488 Interface Function Messages recognized by the VNA
A brief description of the Ethernet program interface to the VNA
A complete listing and description of all the Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments (SCPI) commands that can be used to control VNA operation with examples of command usage
This manual is intended to be used in conjunction with the ShockLine MS46522A and MS46524A Series VNA Operation Manual – 10410-00330. Refer to this manual for general information about the ShockLine Series VNAs, including equipment set up and front panel (manual mode) operating instructions.
This manual provides a reference for the Anritsu ShockLine MS46522A/MS46524A user interface (UI) menus and dialog boxes.
The ShockLine MS46522A/MS46524A Series VNA is an instrument system that contains a built-in source, test set, and analyzer. Designed for manufacturing applications, the MS46522A/MS46524A series VNA supports remote test programming through LAN communications. Test results can be displayed real time on an external video monitor. Screen captures can easily be printed or saved in common graphic file formats.
This is the operation manual for ShockLine VNA MS46522A and MS46524A. Content includes a product overview, installation instructions, security, and maintenance.
The purpose of this Measurement Guide is to introduce the basic calibration and operation of the ShockLine MS46522A Series Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) Systems and reduce the time required to become proficient at performing basic measurements. The procedures in this manual assume a working knowledge of, and a familiarity with, vector network analyzers.
