Anritsu S820E Site Master Cable & Antenna Analyser Description

The Anritsu S820E is the highest value handheld microwave analyser in its class, providing more standard measurement capabilities than any other similar type of product on the market today. Now including standard Video Inspection Probe (VIP) Mode (firmware version V1.17 or greater) users can now verify fiber connectors and perform Pass/Fail testing as per the IEC 61300-3-35 standard, in addition to the traditional coaxial/waveguide measurements already supported by the S820E. All that is required to inspect fiber connector ends is an Anritsu compatible USB Video Inspection Probe (sold separately) such as the G0306A 400x USB VIP. VIP results may be saved as image files, measurement files, or turned into PDF reports directly from the instrument itself. Measurement files obtained with the S820E VIP Mode are fully compatible with Anritsu’s wireline optical test products such as the award winning MT1000A Network Master Pro, MT1100A Network Master Flex, and the MT9000 series of OTDR products.

VNA mode provides fully reversing sweep, 4 S-Parameter simultaneous measurement capabilities with user configurable quad display. Generates standard industry compatible format S2P files (3 types of S2P files are available). S2P files can be imported into Anritsu benchtop VNA’s (VectorStar and ShockLine) for ease of comparison between field and lab measurements.

VVM Mode with A/B and B/A Ratio capability enables the S820E to be used as a drop-in replacement for older legacy Vector Voltmeters. VVM Mode also supports Reflection/Transmission measurements directly, which eliminates the need for an external CW source, and external couplers, bridges, or splitters. Vector Error Correction can be applied to the Reflection or Transmission measurements, which provides absolute measurement data for the DUT, as well as compensating for any cables, adaptors, or fixtures that might be required to connect directly to the DUT. Multiple measurement display modes are available to facilitate easy comparison with other common measurement types, and a handy Table Display allows simultaneous measurement of up to 12 DUT’s and 1 reference, extremely useful for multi-array antenna system tuning. The industry leading dynamic range provides excellent measurement stability and repeat ability where high system losses are unavoidable, making it ideal for critical glide slope installation and verification.

Utilising the same advanced sampler technology used in our premium VectorStar VNA models and our newest ShockLine VNA models. The S820E delivers benchtop microwave performance in a compact handheld package. No other handheld microwave cable & antenna analyser/vector network analyser available today can match the dynamic range performance of the S820E models. With 110 dB of dynamic range up to 40 GHz, the S820E even surpasses the performance of older generation benchtop VNA’s. Modern connectivity options (USB, Ethernet) are standard as well as full remote control capability.
