  • Trace Export in ASCII Format

    Trace Export in ASCII FormatQuestionTrace data is stored on the hard disk or floppy disk of the FSE, FSIQ in a binary format. How to convert binary trace data into ASCII format?AnswerThe binary trace data can be converted into ASCII format using the program TRC2ASC.Recent firmware for FSE (>= version 1.91) or FSIQ (>=2.05) allows to save the trace data directly in ASCII format. The trace data

  • SSB Measurement Result has Changed after a Change of Span

    SSB Measurement Result has Changed after a Change of SpanQuestionI measure phase noise with the R&S FSEA. I get different results with different SPAN. If the span is 100 kHz, the result is -119dBc/Hz as expected. With a span of 116 kHz, the result will be -110 dBc/Hz which is not as expected. Why?AnswerWhen you change the span, you also change the Main PLL Bandwidth, which yields different

  • Display info disappears in Remote Mode

    Display info disappears in Remote ModeQuestionThe labels on the screen disappear when the analyzer is switched into remote mode.AnswerIn the remote mode the labelling is switched off by default to increase the transfer speed on the IEC bus. If you wish to see the labelling, you can switch it on with the GPIB command 'SYSTEM:DISPAY:UPDATE ON'.

  • Red CAL Sign in the Display is on

    Red CAL Sign in the Display is onQuestionThe red UNCAL sign is on - what has to be done?AnswerTypical reasons for the missing calibration data are:- The FSEx exhibits a fault. In this case, the calibration will stop and a message will be displayed.The instrument must be repaired by an R&S service center.- A general reset (factory reset) has been performed. The calibration data is erased and the

  • Synchronization between SME/IQ and FSE-B7/ FSIQ in QPSK Modulation

    Synchronization between SME/IQ and FSE-B7/ FSIQ in QPSK ModulationQuestionSometimes the synchronization between SME/IQ and FSE-B7/FSIQ in QPSK modulation does not work.AnswerA reason for the error message SYNC NOT FOUND on the FSE/FSIQ screen in vector demodulation mode might be that the QPSK mapping in the generator (SMIQ or SME) and the analyzer (FSE+FSE-B7 or FSIQ) is different.Possible

  • IEEE Programming - Waiting for Averaging to be Completed

    IEEE Programming - Waiting for Averaging to be CompletedQuestionHow can I detect the completion of the 400th sweep via remote control?AnswerThis is a program containing the commands that will detect the completion of the400th sweep:REM Initiate an average sweep over 400 sweepsFSx: INIT:CONT OFFFSx: DISP:TRAC:MODE AVERFSx: SWE:COUNT 400FSx: SWE:TIME 0.1FSx: *CLSREM With *OPC the operation complete

  • How to Create a User-Defined PRESET

    How to Create a User-Defined PRESETQuestionHow to create a user-defined PRESETAnswerTo create your own PRESET, please proceed as follows:- Push the PRESET button.- Make the settings you want for your own PRESET.- Store the setup under a specific name (for example "MYPRESET")on the FSIQx, FSEx, ZVx and ESIBx:- Go to the "RECALL" menu (on the ZVx in the right side menu) and select the setup "

  • Trace Data Export to File Readable with other Programs

    Trace Data Export to File Readable with other ProgramsQuestionHow can I get the trace data as a file which I can read with another program, e.g. EXCEL?AnswerThe second submenu of the TRACE menu contains the ASCII FILE EXPORT function. This function generates an ASCII file with the setup and trace data. A description of the file format can be found in the operating manual, Chapter 4, Analyzer Mode,

  • How to get the Marker Frequency Value?

    How to get the Marker Frequency Value?QuestionThe marker level can be read out via IEEE bus using 'CALCULATE:MARKER:Y?'.How is the frequency value returned via IEEE bus after the marker is set to peak?AnswerPlease use 'CALCULATE:MARKER:X?

  • Single Sweep

    Single SweepQuestionWhat is the GPIB command for "SINGLE SWEEP"?AnswerTo get a single sweep via GPIB switch off the continuous mode by means of the command "INITiate:CONTinuous OFF" and then start a single sweep with "INITiate".

  • Recover the Demodulated Data

    Recover the Demodulated DataQuestionIs it possible to overcome the memory limitation of FSE+FSE-B7 / FSIQ and to capture more than 16 k points via GPIB?AnswerThe internal memory of the vector demodulator is limited to 16 k points I/Q data. It is by no means possible to capture more than 16 k points at a time. A longer data stream can be created by concatenating 16 k packets in a PC but the

  • UNCAL and UNDERL

    UNCAL and UNDERLQuestionUNCAL and UNDERL appear as small red letters on the display. What do they mean?AnswerUNCAL: Press the button CAL to start a total calibration. Watch the display. If messages are displayed, please note them. The messages should disappear after the calibration process has been finished .UNDERL: In the vector analyzer mode (FSIQ or FSEx+FSE-B7) this message indicates that the

  • FSIQ Fonts for WMF Files

    FSIQ Fonts for WMF FilesQuestionText and lines of WMF files that have been generated with FSE/FSIQ are incorrectly reproduced when opened on another PCAnswerUse the NT Explorer to copy the FSIQ fonts into the font directory of Windows NT (eg c:\WINNT\FONTS).It is absolutely necessary that you use the Explorer for copying, since only then additional modifications in the registry regarding the fonts

  • UNCAL is Displayed

    UNCAL is DisplayedQuestionWhat can I do to get rid of the red UNCAL indicator on the screen?Answer1) The sweep speed is too high for the selected resolution bandwidth filter. As a result, level and frequency are not measured correctly and the UNCAL indicator appears on the screen.Remedy: Increase the sweep time until UNCAL disappears. Better set the sweep time to Auto adjust.2) An internal value

  • TV Option does not work/ where to find the TV Option?

    TV Option does not work/ where to find the TV Option?QuestionWhere will the user find the TV Option FSE-B3 after firmware update 1.63 or higher?AnswerThe structure of the MODE menu has been changed. The user will find the TV option at MODE => <Menu right>.

  • How to Perform a Factory Reset of FSE?

    How to Perform a Factory Reset of FSE?QuestionHow can a factory reset be performed on an FSE?AnswerProceed as follows:1. Switch FSE off.2. Press DOT button.3. Switch FSE on.4. Disk drive LED will go on and off.5. Release DOT button.6. Perform a calibration after factory reset.

  • What is the Structure of FSE/FSIQ Trace Data on the GPIB?

    What is the Structure of FSE/FSIQ Trace Data on the GPIB?QuestionHow to convert the binary trace result from the GPIB using the command 'TRAC? TRACE1' ?AnswerThe default format after *RST is the ASCII format. That means you will get 500ASCII values, which are separated by commas, in a single string (approx . 6 Kbyte)that is terminated by a line feed (0A hex).To use the floating point format you
