  • 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'.

  • 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

  • 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 "

  • 600 ms RF Pulse/Burst Measurement with Accuracy of less than 1 ms?

    600 ms RF Pulse/Burst Measurement with Accuracy of less than 1 ms?QuestionHow can we measure a pulse length of 600 ms with an accuracy of less than 1 ms with the FSIQ? The maximum accuracy of pulse length measurement should be better than indicated in the data sheet. Time domain problem seems to be 500 display points. 1% FS (full scale) of a pulse length of 600 ms means +/- 6 ms, and this is too

  • What will happen to Options after Firmware Update?

    What will happen to Options after Firmware Update?QuestionDoes a spectrum analyzer from Rohde & Schwarz still have all options availableafter firmware update?AnswerThe new firmware takes all hardware and firmware options into account. Some ofthe options can even be updated with a new firmware.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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,

  • 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

  • Marker Disappears when IEEE is used

    Marker Disappears when IEEE is usedQuestionWhen FSIQ7 is connected to the IEEE bus, the softkeys and the marker disappear.AnswerPlease use the command:SYSTEM:DISPLAY:UPDATE ON/OFFPlease take into accout that updating the display will take some time.

  • Remote Control via RS232

    Remote Control via RS232QuestionI want to remote-control my analyzer with LabWindows via RS232. Can you tell me how to proceed because all my trials were in vain. Remote control is successful with GPIB, but I prefer to use RS232.AnswerThere can be some problems with remote control via RS232:1) Settings in the analyzer - SETUP => GENERA SETUP => COM INTERFACE- The OWNER must be INSTRUMENT. If it is

  • Measure Low Frequency Signals with DC Offset

    Measure Low Frequency Signals with DC OffsetQuestionI want to measure noise at a very low frequency (20 Hz to 100 kHz).The signal has a DC offset, but at the input of the analyzer only 0 V DC are allowed with DC coupling.The DC blocks starts at 7 kHz.How can I measure these signals without destroying my device?AnswerAt these frequencies, an external block capacitor can be used. But a rather high

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • How to read out a manually created limit line via Remote Control?

    How to read out a manually created limit line via Remote Control?QuestionHow to read out a manually created limit line via remote control?AnswerFirst of all, you have to assign a number to the manually created limit line:CALC:LIM1:NAME 'name_of_the_line'Then you can read out the limit line data.UseCALC:LIM1:CONT?to get the X values andCALC:LIM1:UPP?orCALC:LIM1:LOW?to get the Y values.
