I completed a sweep in return loss with a short connected to the other end. My customer requested that I include an insertion loss sweep. Can I convert this return loss sweep to an insertion loss sweep?

Yes, using Handheld Software tools set marker 1 to peak and set the second marker to valley. Add the two values together and divide by four. For more detail please see page 3 of the Insertion Loss Measurement Methods application note. (See Related Links on the right.)

Can the S33xE, the S810D and S820D perform optical time domain measurements like on the S33xD model?

Yes, but there is not an Optical Time Domain mode like on a S33XD model.  You do the measurement in the regular time domain mode.  To run the Optical DTF follow the steps: http://www.us.anritsu.com/downloads/files/10580-00215.pdf

What is the preferred method for updating firmware for Anritsu Handheld RF tools such as the Site Master, Cell Master, VNA Master, LMR Master, Spectrum Master, or BTS Master?

Firmware updates are located under the library tab on the web page of each Anritsu handheld instrument. The installation process will require the use of an USB Memory Stick. Instructions and prompts will appear when the update is executed on your computer.   Older insturments, ones that do not have a firmware update listed in their library tab, can be updated using Anritsu's Master Software Tools. In this case, the preferred media is Ethernet if they have an Ethernet interface, or serial if they do not.  The MS2721B, MS2723B, MS2724B, MT8222A, and MS2026A are transition instruments. If these instruments have firmware created before August of 2009, Master Software Tools and an Ethernet connection will be requried to update their firmware. Once updated, future updates can be done by the USB Memory Stick method, using firmware downloaded from the instrument's web page.

How to check OSL with a resistance meter?

Use an Ohmmeter to measure the DC resistance between the outer conductor and center conductor of the Load and verify that it is within specification OSLN50-1and OSLNF50-150 Ù ± 0.25 Ù OSLN50andOSLNF5050 Ù ± 0.15 Ù

I have taken “Dual” Display Format measurements. I have been asked to split them into “Single” Display Format measurements.

 You can split .VNA files with the latest version of Line Sweep Tools. This link: http://www.anritsu.com/en-US/Products-Solutions/Instructional/Line-Sweep-Tools.aspx Install and launch LST. Click on “Settings”, “Default Plot Settings” and select “Split”. When you open your “Dual” display plots, they will open individually.

How much does it cost for Repair and/or Calibration?

I completed a sweep in return loss with a short connected to the other end. My customer requested that I include an insertion loss sweep. Can I convert this return loss sweep to an insertion loss sweep?

Yes, using Handheld Software tools set marker 1 to peak and set the second marker to valley. Add the two values together and divide by four. For more detail please see page 3 of the "Insertion Loss Measurement Methods" application note, 11410-00276 http://www.us.anritsu.com/downloads/files/11410-00276.pdf

We have OSLN50-1 and OSLN50 standards for our handhelds. How do we know what is loaded into the VNA masters or other handhelds with vna capability?

  The 18GHz OSLN50, OSLNF50, OSLK50, and OSLKF50 cal kits are tuned to have a capacitance value of 0. That is why the VNA Master “VNA Mode” uses a C=0 setting for those cal kits. The BTS Master VNA app (and the older “A” series VNA Master) are setup to use the older OSL 4GHz and 6GHz cal kits, which had a different capacitance value (not necessarily 0). In reality, when you are only sweeping to 4GHz  or even to 6GHz, the capacitance values will not make a noticeable difference.
