- Rohde & Schwarz launched the R&S ZNL network analyzer for research, maintenance and production applications.
- With the appropriate options, the R&S ZNL network analyzer, covering a frequency band up to 6 GHz, integrates a spectrum analyzer, transforms itself into a wattmeter, and measures the noise factor.
Rohde & Schwarz offers the R&S ZNL Network Analyzer for measuring the most common RF signal parameters to characterize components such as antennas, attenuators, filters and amplifiers. This instrument also performs spectrum measurements, demodulation of analog and digital signals, and power measurements.
The R&S ZNL Network Analyzer is equipped with a 10.1” WXGA touch screen from which the center frequency, reference level, zoom span or amplitude range can be configured.
Integrated in a compact case (408 mm x 235 mm) with a carrying handle, it can integrate an optional battery.
Covering frequency ranges from 5 kHz to 3 GHz or 6 GHz, the R&S ZNL network analyser has a dynamic range of up to 130 dB (typ.) and an output power range of -40 dBm to +3 dBm (typ.). The measurement speed reaches 16.7 ms (401 points, bandwidth IF 100 kHz, span 200 MHz, full 2-port calibration). This analyzer offers the standard features of Embedding/DeEmbedding, compensation of test accessories, and measurements in the time domain. It also supports automatic calibration units.
The R&S ZNL can also be equipped with a real spectrum analyzer. And when used with the R&S NRP power probe, it acts as a wattmeter.
Spectral analysis mode allows measurements to be carried out: channel power, adjacent channel leakage rate (ACLR), signal-to-noise ratio, interference measurement, harmonic distortion, third order interception point (TOI), and AM modulation depth.
The R&S FPL1-K30 option, combined with an external noise source, allows the noise factor to be measured.
