The Site Master S810D, covering 25 MHz to 10.5 GHz, and the S820D, covering 25 MHz to 20.0 GHz, are the
most accurate, reliable and convenient one port microwave transmission line and antenna analyzers available
for installation, verification, troubleshooting, and repair of microwave communication systems.
Measurement capabilities includes return loss, SWR, cable loss, and distance-to-fault (DTF) analysis. Patented
RF interference rejection enables accurate measurements in the presence of high RF activity. Data Analysis
software enables assessment of system trends, problems, and performance in addition to professional report
generation. An optional power monitor is available to make power measurements quickly and easily. A built-in
GPS receiver (optional) provides location information for each trace and saved with archived data.
Use the MA25100A RF Power Indicator to determine if a connector is "live" with RF power that could damage sensitive measuring equipment from 400 MHz to 4000 MHz. Mate the MA25100A to the connector in question and it will indicate the presence of high-level RF: Yellow LED if RF > +17 dBm (50 mW) or Red LED if RF > +27 dBm (500 mW).
The MA25100A can withstand RF power levels up to +50 dBm (100 W) from a 50 Ω source. The MA25100A has a very high VSWR and should not be used as a 50 Ω termination.
The MA25100A is always on and always ready. Its self-contained battery can last for years with normal use and is field-replaceable. A "self-test" button lights both indicators (red and yellow) if internal circuits and battery are functioning.
Transmission Line and Antenna Testing has become a common test of RF network integrity over the past few years. This relatively new testing methodology is a result of new test equipment evolutions and the need to fully understand the integrity of RF networks after installation.
While common today, in the past this component was ignored because the equipment necessary to perform the tests was either laboratory grade or non-existent in the field. Recently, it has become evident that, while the capabilities of testing the integrity of transmission line, connectors, and antennas is readily available in the field, the results and conclusions of this testing are not consistent.
Cable manufacturers and antenna manufacturers are often blamed for failed tests while the hardware is proven to be fully compliant, and functional as designed. In an effort to improve these valuable tests and establish consistency in the results and conclusions from the test, experts from the industry decided to work together to establish some basic guidelines for the tests and Methods of Procedure (MOP). This consensus work was performed in a controlled environment with the major leaders of the industry present. The recommendations and techniques presented were developed to improve the integrity of the results, and represent effective conclusions that can be reached, regardless of the cable, connector, test equipment, or antenna evaluated.
The purpose of this paper is to develop and achieve consistent results.
