ShockLine Family Model Comparison

Model Comparison

ShockLine VNAs are simple, economical, and deliver great performance. With their compact and durable design, they are ready-to-use right out of the box. Across the entire family, you’ll find coverage for a wide frequency range with fast test times and optimal throughput. Excellent corrected directivity and minimal drift reduces measurement uncertainty and enables smaller guard bands for improved yield in production. The ShockLine family also delivers fast measurement speeds with high dynamic range that minimizes test times and maximizes throughput in automated and manual test applications. With Anritsu’s world-class customer support and a 3-year warranty, you’ll also have the support and service you need when you need it.
