Lightweight design, heavyweight performance

R&S®ZNH is a full two-port handheld vector network analyzer that offers one-port cable and antenna measurement and full two-port S-parameter measurements. The touch based interface is simple to operate and a configuration overview menu makes measurement preparation more efficient. The R&S®ZNH may have a small form factor but it is complete in every detail and delivers high performance and all the key functionalities.

Features & benefits

Four receiver architecture

Sophisticated RF architecture provides access to latest calibration types

The four-receiver architecture consists of dedicated reference receivers and test receivers at both port 1 and port 2. This allows R&S®ZNH to support more advanced calibration types such as unknown through, open, short and match (UOSM) calibration. This calibration is useful for DUTs with different input or output connector types at the test ports.

Four-receiver architecture

Minimal switching between the two ports and sophisticated calibration such as UOSM

Compact powerhouse

Outstanding RF performance in a small form factor

The portability and small footprint of the R&S®ZNH make it ideal for field measurements.

The R&S®ZNH also delivers high performance with the following features:

  • Wide frequency range of 30 kHz to 4/8/18/26.5 GHz to support a wide range of applications
  • High dynamic range of up to 100 dB (typ.) to measure large level variations
  • Highly accurate thanks to a low trace noise magnitude (RMS) of 0.0015 dB to 0.0040 dB (typ.) and a low trace noise phase (RMS) of 0.02° to 0.04° (typ.)
  • Built-in receiver step attenuator at both ports, which is adjustable in 5 dB steps from 0 dB to 15 dB
R&S®ZNH

Receiver step attenuator

Increases the linearity of the port input power range, which protects the analyzer against overloading.

Simple to operate

Multi-touch screen, remote control and measurement wizard for a top user experience

The multi-touch screen offers the standard pinch-to-zoom function available on smartphones. The R&S®ZNH supports typical phone control gestures, helping users feel at home. Even if operators cannot access the instrument directly, free PC, Android and iOS remote control apps are available for seamless operation. Furthermore, the measurement wizard helps simplify measurements with automated test sequences, speeding up the test process and reducing the potential for human error.

Multi-touch function

Capacitive touchscreen; intuitive operation and no display calibration required.

Simple configuration

Simple and fast setup with configuration overview menu

The R&S®ZNH has both keys and a rotary knob as well as touchscreen controls. The keys are large and well spaced out, allowing easy operation when wearing gloves.

The capacitive touchscreen offers a new kind of user experience:

  • Directly interact with elements on the screen
  • Access menus quickly
  • Change frequency and span
  • Add/move/delete markers
  • And more


The configuration overview menu reduces the steps required to configure the measurement settings, enabling fast setup.

Flexible calibration

User defined calibration sequences provide a flexible approach.

Simple to add value

Comprehensive standard features and simple option ordering

The R&S®ZNH basic unit includes:

  • Distance-to-fault measurements
  • One-port cable loss measurements
  • Reflection measurement
  • Transmission measurement
  • Four S-parameters (S11, S21, S12, S22)


When additional functions are needed, the options are easy to order. All the options can be ordered transparently and independently, meaning no hidden costs and no confusion when ordering.
