I want to purchase a demo unit. Can I add new options to my demo unit?

Yes, purchased demo units can have new options added.

Does Anritsu have T-shape Calibration Components (Open, Short and Load) for Broadband Site Masters (S810D/S820D)?

Yes, the part numbers are, OSLN50 (DC to 18 GHz, N(m), 50 Ohms) OSLK50 (DC to 20 GHz, K(m), 50 Ohms)

We are testing Andrews EW64 Waveguide with 164DET (CPR137G) type flange with Site Master 820C. We need to know the corresponding part numbers for the 1/8 short, 3/8 short, precision load, and waveguide to coax N(m) adapter that we need for calibration.

The part numbers are: 23UA137 (1/8 offset short) 24UA137 (3/8 offset short) 26UA137 (precision load) 35UA137N (waveguide to coax adapter) Note: these part numbers are also valid for Andrew's EW52, EW63 Waveguides with CPR137G Flange type.

Will the InstaCal Calibration Module, ICN50, work on the S810D/S820D?

No, the InstaCal Module can not be used on the S8X0D sitemasters.

Does Anritsu have T-shape Open/ Short / Load with K type connector for Broadband Site Masters (S810D/S820D)?

Yes, the part numbers are OSLK50 (DC to 20 GHz, K(m), 50 Ohms) and OSLKF50 (DC to 20 GHz, K(F), 50 Ohms)

I am trying to download 12 traces from my S331D to a database using HHST I consistently get an error on 3 traces although not the same 3 when I try to do this. I also tried to capture the plots to screen but the same thing happens. I am using the latest firmware on the handheld and have the current version of HHST.

On your laptop or PC go to network connections. Left click on Wireless Network Connection to highlight it and then right click. If disable is an option disable the wireless connection and try to download your traces to a database. You may need to power off/on the sitemaster. More detail can be found at:

My captured traces on Handheld Software Tools do not look same as they are saved in Site Master. Scale has changed (vertical side).

Before capturing Trace, go to Settings on Handheld Software Tools then Default Plot Setting and then select Per Site Master under Plot Scaling.

When using a Sitemaster, what is the maximum cable loss I should measure using the 1 port method?

The maximum cable loss one should expect to have an accurate measurement is 10 dB or less.  For measurements that exceed 10 dB, the uncertainty increases significantly.  The 2 port cable loss measurement technique should be used in these cases.

When creating Custom Cable list using Handheld Software Tools to upload to a Site Master, what is the maximum number of cable types that can be stored in the Site Master (current platform and old platform)?

125 cables for current platform and 49 cables for old platform. Current platform: MT2812B/S331D/S332D with firmware version of V3.00 or higher. Any S810D/S820D, regardless of firmware version. Old Platform: All other models/firmware versions other than listed above.

What are the specifications for the SC5237 (6 dB offset termination) and SC5270 (20 dB offset termination)?

SC5237: DC to 4.0 GHz, 16.4 to 16.8 ohm 6dB +/- 0.25 dB

SC5270: DC to 4.0 GHz, 40.66 to 41.1 ohm 20dB +/- 1.5 dB

My traces are saved in .MDB format on my PC. How do I convert these traces to .DAT files?

In HHST go to File>Database>Select the data base you want to open. This will open a window called Site Master Database showing pointing to your database. Display records 1 at a time or display all depending on the version of HHST you are using. Save each record as a .DAT trace file one at a time.

What is the Return Loss specification for 2000-767/2000-768 Open/Short/Load?

The return loss specification is 40dB up to 2.5GHz and 38dB up to 4GHz.

What USB to Serial Adapters will work with my Sitemaster?

All the Site Master, Cell Master and Spectrum Master Products (excluding MS2721A) include an RS-232 serial port. Most of the new lap top computers available in today's market do not feature an RS-232 serial port but feature a Universal Serial Bus (USB) port instead. To address this issue, a USB to Serial adapter can be used. It is important to note that the adapter can not be used to communicate with the Handheld Code Loader software and can only be used to communicate with the Anritsu Handheld Software Tools (Version 6.49 or above) to download and upload traces. Most of the USB to Serial adapters available today in the market will work, provided the computer uses an operating system that supports USB interfaces and that Handheld Software Tools (Version 6.49 or above) is used. The following USB to Serial adapters have been evaluated by Anritsu and have been confirmed to work properly: . HP (5184-2172) . Belkin (F5U103) . Xircom (PGSDB9) . Keyspan (USA-19QW) . Delorme (DEL00331) . Tripp Lite (U209-000-R) . Anritsu (551-1691) If an earlier version of Handheld Software Tools is being used, only the Anritsu supplied adapter will work.

Will a Polyphaser alter the return loss of an antenna sweep?

The frequency response and isolation of the Polyphaser should be better than the Antenna. The Polyphaser would be transparent to the antenna sweeps response.

The measurement range of the Power Monitor Option (5) for Site Masters is -50 to +20 dBm. Can we measure power greater than +20dBm?

To measure power greater than +20 dBm an external attenuator is required. The display range of the instrument is -80 dBm to +80 dBm so therefore you can measure up to +80 dBm with a 60 dB external attenuator.

I have saved my Site Master traces to a database. How do I view the files using HHST?

Using HHST (handheld software tools) select FILE -> Database. A window will pop up called "Select a Database" and from there you can either create a new database or open an existing one. Click on "Open a Database" and then click on "OK". In the window that pops up navigate to the location where the database is stored on your hard drive. Select it and then click "Open". You may get an error Number 5 and if so hit "OK" to ignore this error message. In the HHST screen you should see the "Site Master Database" window showing the traces saved in the database just opened. Note that you may need to click on the "Site Master Database" icon in the Windows Taskbar before the window is displayed.

Can you capture the power monitor (option 5) measurements by using the "Capture Current Plot to Screen F2" function of Handheld Software Tools?

No, for sitemaster "C" Models and below, this function is not supported.  You can use this function on the "D" Model sitemasters.  (S311D/S312D, S331D/S332D, S810D/S820D, MS2711D).

What is the meaning of the LED indicators on the optional battery charger?

Each battery holder in the optional charger has an LED charging status indicator. The LED color changes as the battery is charged:

Red indicates the battery is charging

Green indicates the battery is fully charged

Yellow indicates the battery is in a waiting state.  A yellow light may occur because the battery became too warm during the charge cycle.  In this case, the charger will allow the battery to cool off before continuing the charge. A yellow light may also indicate that the charger is alternating charge to each of the two batteries.
