Its unique features ensure fast and efficient cable and antenna measurements. The easy-to-use analyzer features a touchscreen and large keypad.

Features & benefits

Fast

Fast operation with the R&S®Cable Rider ZPH

The R&S®Cable Rider ZPH boots up in less than 15 s and only needs 1 minute to warm up and can therefore begin measurement almost instantly.
Measurements can then be set up very quickly using the overview menu.
The analyzer’s extremely fast measurements are the best in its class. The configuration overview menu allows you to view and change all parameter settings with just one keystroke. The fast synthesizers in the analyzer speed up measurements to 0.3 ms per point.

Efficient

Efficient operation with the R&S®Cable Rider ZPH

Downtime-free operation is efficient operation.
With a single full charge, the R&S®Cable Rider ZPH lasts an entire working day without needing to recharge or change the batteries.
If tasks require additional options, these can be purchased and activated without needing to send the analyzer to the service lab for an upgrade or recalibration.

Key capabilities for base station installation

The R&S®Cable Rider ZPH has all the essential cable and antenna testing capabilities: distance-to-fault, VSWR and one-port cable loss measurements as well as phase and Smith chart displays of these measurements.

Calibration

One-step calibration

Calibration is only recommended if there are additional cables or adapters connected in between the analyzer and the device under test (DUT). This eliminates any influences on the measurement.
For convenient, one-step calibration, the R&S®ZN-Z103 calibration unit automatically switches internally between OPEN, SHORT and LOAD. This saves time and eliminates the hassle of physically changing the different calibration standards in the field.

Portability

Weighs only 2.5 kg

With its ergonomic design, the R&S®Cable Rider ZPH has a small form factor and is lightweight. It comes with a convenient side strap to support your hand during the short measurement period. For hands-free operation, the holster (R&S®HA-Z322) comes with a harness that is carefully designed to equally distribute the weight around the body.

Durability

A single charge lasts for a day’s work

The R&S®Cable Rider ZPH will operate for an entire working day on a single charge. Simply charge it for approximately 4 hours and the lithium-ion battery pack will last up to 9 hours. The advantages of long battery life are obvious: the weight of an extra battery can be saved when climbing up a mast or tower and there’s no frustration due to the battery running out during a measurement.

Usability

Touchscreen gestures, non-reflective screen and backlit keypad

To enhance user experience, the user interface operates like a smart phone. The touchscreen is not limited to the menu bar; it also allows users to move the spectrum, zoom in and out of the span, add/delete markers, etc.

Non-reflective screen and backlit keypad

Non-reflective screen makes it easier to work outdoors, even in bright sunlight so you can continue working though the night or under dim conditions thanks to the backlit keypad
