Morgan Hill, CA – June 12, 2023 – Anritsu Firm introduces the ShockLine™ ME7869A distributed modular 2-port vector community analyzers (VNAs) that may conduct long-distance full vector S-parameter measurements over extensive distances of as much as 100 meters. Three fashions – working as much as 8 GHz, 20 GHz, and 43.5 GHz, respectively – present unprecedented cost-efficiency, flexibility, and ease-of-use to a wide range of current and rising business and navy antenna design functions.

The ME7869A is configured with two MS46131A 1-port VNAs that may every be instantly linked to the antenna beneath check (AUT). Cable size for every VNA module may be equal or completely different lengths, relying on the appliance. It eliminates the necessity for lengthy RF coaxial cables that create excessive loss, and part and magnitude instability. The distinctive design addresses the necessity to precisely and repeatably measure antennas over lengthy distances, reminiscent of in anechoic chambers and antenna check ranges.

Anritsu’s PhaseLync™ synchronization expertise permits two MS46131A VNAs to part synchronize with one another over the complete 100-meter distance. PhaseLync improves dynamic vary and measurement stability of S-parameter measurements by eliminating the necessity for lengthy cables essential with typical benchtop VNAs.

One other key good thing about the distributed modular VNA answer is the MN25132A management module, which drastically simplifies set up. It acts as a junction for the cables and provides energy to the 2 MS46131A VNAs. There is no such thing as a want to connect separate energy provides to the 2 VNA heads. The management module additionally interfaces the 2 VNAs to a laptop computer configured with ShockLine software program.

A number of Purposes Supported

The ShockLine ME7869A brings efficiency, price, and ease advantages to any insertion loss utility that requires lengthy cable runs at frequencies as much as 43.5 GHz in comparison with various costly benchtop VNAs that require superior dynamic vary. The ME7869A can be utilized in satellite tv for pc, supplies measurement, aerospace and protection, and sign integrity environments.
