With its fast measurement speed, intuitive operation and long battery life, the new R&S Cable Rider ZPH is ideal for use in the field.

The handheld R&S Cable Rider ZPH cable and antenna analyzer helps infrastructure manufacturers and network operators efficiently install and maintain the steadily increasing number of mobile communications antenna systems. Where the R&S Cable Rider ZPH really stands out is its speed. With a measurement speed of 0.3 milliseconds per data point, it is significantly faster than other instruments. Featuring the fastest boot and warm-up time on the market, the analyzer allows users to start taking fast measurements just over a minute after switching on the R&S Cable Rider ZPH. Moreover, there is no requirement for calibration due to temperature and frequency changes, which saves time.

Another time-saving feature is the use of the wizard function that guides users through measurements in easy-to-follow steps. All settings and measurement steps can be preconfigured. Field technicians only need to execute the test sequences as shown on the display. The wizard helps inexperienced field technicians to avoid operating mistakes when performing antenna and cable measurements. Since there is no need to change settings manually for different measurements, the analyzer reduces test time during installation and maintenance.

The R&S Cable Rider ZPH is ideal for use in the field. Thanks to its light weight of only 2.5 kilograms and a battery life of nine hours, users can handle a full day’s work without interruption. Users will not be delayed due to the battery running down in the middle of a measurement. Furthermore, the analyzer has a large color touchscreen with familiar smartphone-like operation. For example, markers can be placed by double tapping signals on the display. The analyzer can also be operated via the extra-large, widely spaced keys that allow easy handling even when the user wears heavy-duty work gloves.

The R&S Cable Rider ZPH base unit covers a frequency range from 2 MHz to 3 GHz. Extending the frequency range to 4 GHz is straightforward with the R&S ZPH-B4 option, which is enabled via a key code.

The new R&S Cable Rider ZPH cable and antenna analyzer is now available from Rohde & Schwarz.
