Certain versions of software for the Spectrum Master (MS2721B, MS2723B, and MS2724B), the VNA Master (MS2024A, MS2026A, MS2034A, and MS2036A) and the BTS Master (MT8222B) have an issue with the display of the last octet of the subnet mask. In these versions of the software, if you set the last octet of the subnet mask to a value other than 0, then view the setting when the ethernet is NOT connected to another device, the last octet of the subnet mask will be displayed as 0. However, the correct subnet mask is stored, and if you connect the ethernet connetion before powering up the tester, the subnet will be displayed correctly.
No. If someone sends you a .csv file MST cannot be used to convert it back to a .vna file to be opened in MST.
Yes but you need to be very careful that the RF from another Source is not going to exceed the 20 dBm max on the RF port. Power in excess of 20 dBm can result in damage to the unit.
Currently Anritsu does not but is working diligently to provide a solution.
Log Mag Dual Overlay will display both S11 and S21 on the VNA Master screen simultaneously overlaid on the same set of graticules. You get no choice of how to look at them – Log Mag only. S21 is the yellow trace, measured against the left-side graph scale. S11 is the blue trace measured against the right-side graph scale. The sweep will alternately update S11 and S21. It can not sweep both s-parameters simultaneously. When Log Mag Dual Overlay is active, the Scale hard key menu will add an extra soft key that will toggle between S21 and S11 scale modification. The features were added for those of our customers who spend a lot of time tuning filters and duplexers, and want to be able to watch both traces while tuning.
S11 Forward Reflection represents the measurement in which the signal leaves port 1 and is reflected back to port 1. S21 Forward Transmission represents the measurement in which the signal leaves port 1 and is transmitted to port 2. S12 Reverse Transmission represents the measurement in which the signal leaves port 2 and is transmitted to port 1. S22 Reverse Reflection represents the measurement in which the signal leaves port 2 and is reflected back to port 2.
Operating Temperature: -10 degree C to 55 degree C. Storage Temperature: -51 degree C to 71 degree C.
Approximately +/- 20 Meters but this is not specified.
No. The InstaCal Calibration Module, ICN50, will not work on the VNA Masters ( MS2024A, MS2026A, MS2034A, MS2036A) or the BTS Master (MT8222A).
Some options for the S331D Site Master require additional hardware or calibration factors to be loaded into the unit so the work needs to be done in either an Anritsu service center or at the Morgan Hill, CA facility. For other options, these can be added via a license file and instructions on how to complete this process are shown below:
Generating an Instrument Config File and Installing A New License File
To automatically queue the Anritsu website for updates, you must configure the Master Software Tools (MST) Internet Settings.
1. Run the MST program.
2. Connect to the instrument.
3. Generate a Config File
a. Pull down the Sync menu and highlight Device Status and Options to open the submenu.
Get Options Highlighted (config file)
b. Click Get Options (Config File). The Save Config File window opens.
c. Go to the folder where the license file was previously stored.
d. Highlight the file and press the Open button. The filename format is model-spaceserialnumber.license.
e. MST will install the new license into the instrument. After the installation is complete, a dialog appears.
“Instrument options successfully upgraded. Cycle power on the instrument to begin using the new features”
f. Follow the instruction.
g. Verify the new option(s) are listed on the boot up screen.
There is a rack mount kit available for current models of handheld instruments. The part number is 66864. This kit can be used with the following models: S331E, S332E, S361E, S362E, MT8221B, MT8222B, MT8212E, MT8213E, S412E, MS2024B, MS2025B, MS2034B, MS2035B, MS2026C, MS2028C, MS2036C, MS2038C, MS2722C, MS2723C, MS2724C, MS2725C, MS2726C, MS2711E, MS2712E, MS2713E, and MS2721B
