Site Master S810C and S820C Microwave Transmission Line and Antenna Analyzer Programming Manual

The Site Master must first be set into remote mode for communication with a computer. Remote mode differs from normal repetitive sweep and single-sweep modes. During remote mode, the Site Master stops sweeping entirely and attends to the serial port. The Site Master indicates remote mode by displaying the word REMOTE on the front panel display.

Is it possible to recall traces once they have been deleted from the Site Master 251 series?

There is no way to retrieve the traces once you have deleted them. It's always a good practice to download the traces from the Site Master to a laptop before leaving the site.

There is a lot of concern about loss and reflections in the cable run to the antenna. Why don't the radio MFGs just make transmitters with more power?

The FCC regulates how much output power of any given transmitter. Since this is a fixed quantity, the system designers are forced to squeeze out every bit of performance out of the entire system.

I left my Site Master on a bench and went to lunch. It's not sweeping anymore. What's wrong? How do I get it to sweep again?

The Site Master goes into a power saving mode after 10 minutes of inactivity. Just press the RUN/HOLD button and the unit will begin sweeping again.

Can you use a one load if you calibrate with a different load?

You may calibrate the Site Master with one precision load and make measurements with another precision load. Type "N" loads are specified to be better than 42 dB return loss, and 7/16 Din loads are specified to 45 dB. You can never make a measurement better than the quality of the calibration components being used. This is true for ALL test equipment.

What will be the benefit for me to install the Site Master Code Loader?

The Code Loader program allows you to keep the installed firmware version of your Site Master current to the current version being shipped. In other words if you had for example, 6 units and they all had different versions, as seen when you turn the box on, then you could make them all current with the latest version.

What is the little double arrow 'C' symbol on my display mean?

This is the Site Master temperature icon. It indicates that the internal temperature of your unit has changed enough to make the calibration invalid. When it appears, you should re-calibrate your instrument. You can check the temperature range of your most recent cal by pressing .sys.status.

Is the v6.41 software backward compatible with the v6.4?

Files saved with an older version of software tools such as 6.40 can be read and manipulated with version 6.41. Files which were saved with the new 6.41 version can not be read and manipulated with an older version such as 6.40.

Marker and trace data values are truncated to the right of the decimal (comma) for both Frequency and Amplitude. This occurs in German and French operating system Regional Settings.

Marker and trace data are displayed properly in German and French Regional Settings when "German(Swiss)" and "French(Swiss)" regional selections are made. To select the operational German or French Regional Settings, do the following : Go to Start up Menu - Settings - Control Panel - Regional Settings Select "German(Swiss)" Regional Settings for German users or "French(Swiss)" Regional Settings for French users.

Why is my unit giving bad readings?

There might be a calibration problem. Have you performed an open/short/load calibration? Check the calibration kit for mechanical damage.

Why is my Site Master display blank on power-up?

Site Master defaults to having a minimum contrast which often appears blank. Adjust the contrast with the up/down arrow keys until the display appears.

When installing Software Tools on a Windows 2000 operating system, the installer might find versions of DLLs on your PC that are out of date.

Installation of Windows 2000, Service Pack #1 is required. The Service Pack #1 can be found at: "">

Can I use the InstaCal I got with my new S331C on my S331B? How about my S114C?

Your InstaCal module can be used on any S11xC, S33xC, or later models. InstaCal will not work on the older "B" models or on the S251C.

What is the part number for a replacement battery for the 'A' and non-lettered Site Masters?

ND45417 - contact a service center for pricing and purchasing

What type of interface cable is needed for connectiing a computer to the Site Master?

The cable is a RS232 with 9-pin female connectors on both sides and needs to be a null-modem cable. In an emergency, purchase the following part numbers from Radio Shack. 26-152 and 26-264.

Why don't I use an Open/Short/Load procedure for waveguide calibrations?

The waveguide calibration uses a 1/8 wavelength offset short, a 3/8 wavelength offset short and a precision waveguide load for calibration. For coax calibration the open and short both causes high reflections back to the Site Master but an open on a waveguide causes minimal reflections to occur although they are about twice as much as the load. The 1/8 and 3/8 offset shorts are used to set the 0 (zero) reference of the Site Master just like the Open/Short for coaxial calibrations.

What do I need if my Laptop doesn't have a Serial interface connection?

Anritsu has a USB-to-Serial adapter, part number 551-1691 or customer can order the Earthmate USB Power Adapter directly from DeLORME at "">

What happens if the battery of my site master is completely discharged?

If a battery is allowed to totally discharge, the smart-memory capability of the battery may be lost, resulting in incorrect battery capacity readings or loss of communication with the battery.

Is there any recommendation for Battery Life on a Site Master?

The NiMH battery will last longer and perform better if allowed to completely discharge before recharging. For maximum battery life, it is recommended that the NiMH battery be completely discharged and recharged once every three months.

When I open a plot in the Site Master Software Tools I am unable to move any of the markers away from the left or right margin of the plot.

This is caused by opening a plot that has been saved by a higher version of the Site Master software, i.e. you can not open a plot that has been saved by v6.41in v6.31 or lower. The person trying to view the plot must upgrade their version of the software. NOTE: if, after opening the plot and seeing the problem, the user saves the plot it will corrupt it and will exhibit the same problem even when opened in the original version of software. Just opening the plot will not corrupt it.

Why can't I use the Power Monitor Mode?, it says "Power Monitor Not Installed", I have a connector, what else do I need?

All model "C" units have the external connector for power monitoring, but power monitor is an option (#5) and must be installed at the time of ordering or the unit must be returned for an upgrade. You will also need a power detector, which is an accessory. Check your users guide for a list of Anritsu Power detectors available for your unit.
