Rohde & Schwarz's R & S ZNLE vector network analyzer

Rohde & Schwarz’s ZNLE vector network analyzer allies compactness and simplicity

  • Rohde & Schwarz’s R & S ZNLE vector network analyzer stands out for its compactness and support functions.
  • This range of entry level vector network analyzers includes two models covering a frequency range up to 3 GHz and 6 GHz.
  • This compact instrument weighs 6 kg for a footprint of 408 mm x 235 mm.

Rohde & Schwarz’s R & S ZNLE Vector Network Analyzer aims to meet the needs of RF component characterization applications such as antennas, attenuators, filters, and printed circuit boards.

The two-port vector network analyzer provides a support tool to facilitate the measurement of bidirectional S-parameters: S11, S21, S12 and S22.

It is available with an optional GPIB interface in two versions covering frequency ranges from 1 MHz to 3 GHz (R & S ZNLE3) and 6 GHz (R & S ZNLE6).

The R & S ZNLE, which has a typical dynamic range of 120 dB, offers resolution filters ranging from 1 Hz to 500 kHz. The measurement is done in 9.6 ms for 201 points with a 100 kHz resolution filter, for a 200 MHz span, with a TOSM / SOLT two-port calibration. The R & S ZNLE also has a typical trace noise of 0.001 dB.

The ZNLE R & S Analyzer is equipped with a 10.1 “WXGA touchscreen for zooms on the traces with simple finger movements. The user interface provides the ability to access all functions in a few steps. Undo / Redo keys are available to undo and restore user input.

The instrument incorporates the calibration wizard used by the other Rohde & Schwarz R & S ZNx analyzers. Automatic calibration kits can also be used. The “Start Auto Cal” function generates automatic calibration at the touch of a single button.
