  • How to Create a User-Defined PRESET

    How to create a user-defined PRESETTo 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 "MYPRESET" under"AUTO RECALL"on the FSQx, FSUx, FSPx, ESPIx

  • Remote command „CALC:UNIT:POW DBUV” is not accepted

    We use the receiver mode. After sending the command “CALC:UNIT:POW DBUV” we get the error “-200,"Execution error; Function not available” back. That command is mentioned in the manual and the “unit” dBuV” should be available. What is wrong?You are right - in receiver mode it must be possible to use dBuV. In fact, that is the default setting after a preset.Please check if there is any other transducer

  • Remote Control: How can I Determine if there is a Peak Search Result using the Command 'TRACE? FINAL1'?

    Via remote control; How can I determine if there is a peak search result using the command 'TRACE? FINAL1'? Because when there are no peaks, the program will run in a timeout and will stop.You have to enable a service request on the MAV (MessageAVailable) bit, and wait for it before you try to read back the result.Please use the following program structure:Rem Initialize the receiver...Rem Enable the

  • Sending a Remote Control Ccommand Internally

    I need to send a remote control command to the device, but I do not have a PC available to control the device.Can I do this internally with the device itself?Yes, Go to the device's Windows function Open the Windows Explorer Open the C:\Program Files\Rohde&Schwarz\Network Analyzer\Bin folder Execute the iecwin32.exe program Choose the RSIB interface and push the Connect Now button Now you can write

  • How to set Limit Lines with Frequency Gaps?

    How can I set limit lines that contain frequency gaps?Up to now, you had to enter a pseudo limit of 200 dB, but that doesn't look nice on the screen.Please proceed as follows:Select a limit line and split it up into two parts: one before and one after the frequency gap. Create each line with the "new limit line" softkey (after pressing the "Lines" hardkey) as usual. Name one line "xyzpart1" and the

  • Correct Step Size for a Stepped EMI Scan?

    Why is it important to use the correct step size for a stepped EMI scan?In the case of EMI measurements, the frequency range is analyzed in frequency steps. An important parameter is the IF bandwidth specified by the standards. The step size for a scan depends on the IF range.The step size is important for the following reasons:- If the step size is very large, narrowband interferer cannot be detected

  • Upload and Download of Transducer Factors

    Is there a tool for downloading transducer factors to my test receiver?Yes, there is a tool. Please run the attached Excel file. It contains a table forfrequencies and factors and a selection of different units. You can alsoselect linear and logarithmic interpolation. You can download a transducer factorvia the GPIB or LAN interface (if your test receiver is also equippedwith a LAN interface). Name

  • Reset the RS-232-C connection

    I control the analyzer via RS-232-C.I perform a single sweep which is triggered by an external trigger. I synchronize to end of sweep with "*OPC?".Sometimes the external trigger does not come and the "*OPC?" command ends in a time-out.After this time-out the RS-232-C connection jams.How can I open the connection again without restarting the analyzer?Please send the command "@DCL" after the time-out

  • Restore the Auto Logon Configuration

    Because of a LAN operation I changed the logon name. Now I have changed it back to 'instrument' but I still get a logon window for the password at every boot-up . How can I restore the normal auto logon configuration?In WINDOWS, please click START and RUN (opens 'regedit') and then OK.In the tree on the left-hand side, choose the following:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEthen softwarethen Microsoftthen WINDOWS NTthen

  • Possibility of Recording GPIB Commands?

    Remote control: Is it possible to record the GPIB commands that the spectrum analyzer receives?Yes, you can activate this feature under:'SETUP' => 'SERVICE' => 'NEXT'' => 'NEXT' => 'COMMAND TRACKING'Then you will get the file 'IEC_CMDS.LOG' with the commands in the folder 'D:\R_S\INSTR\LOG\'.Please deselect the tracking option afterwards by pushing the 'COMMAND TRACKING' button.

  • Remote Desktop: How can I see all Analyzer Buttons on the PC Screen?

    I have connected my PC to the analyzer via LAN. The firewall settings are made, I have a remote desktop connection, but I cannot see all buttons of the analyzer on my PC.I even shut down the analyzer function and restarted the analyzer function on the analyzer, but this did not help either.Please do not restart the analyzer function on the analyzer. You must restart it from the PC.Perform the following

  • How can I Update my Analyzer via LAN?

  • How can I Switch from Remote to Local State via Remote Control?

    How can I switch from remote to local state via remote control?Using a GPIB connection, you can send a Go To Local (GTL) command.If you use VISA, the command is viGpibControlREN and you have to send the VI_GPIB_REN_DEASSERT_GTLmode.You can also use this solution when you perform programming with drivers.If you use the GPIB driver, you need the GTL command.
