R&S®ZVL Vector Network Analyzers

Frequency range: 9 kHz to 3 GHz/6 GHz/13.6 GHz.
75 Ω version: 9 kHz to 3 GHz.
Portable network analyzers with optional spectrum analyzer in one unit

Key Facts

  • Optional spectrum analysis and digital communications standards
  • Bidirectional test set for displaying all four S-parameters

Brief Description

The R&S®ZVL is a cost-efficient, powerful, and portable network analyzer in the compact class, and is therefore ideal for use in development, production, and service. It is the only instrument to combine the functions of a network analyzer, spectrum analyzer, and power meter in a single box, and will thus tremendously increase your work efficiency.

Features

  • Full one-port (OSM), full two-port (TOSM), and one-path two-port calibration
  • Measurement of S-parameters, impedance, admittance, and stability

Specifications

Frequency range 9 kHz (typ. 5 kHz) to 3 GHz/6 GHz/13.6 GHz
Measurement time (201 test points at 100 kHz IF bandwidth, with normalization calibration) <50 ms

Supported Technologies

  • 3GPP FDD BTS (+ R&S®FSL-K72)
  • WLAN IEEE 802.11a/b/g/j (+ R&S®FSL-K91)
  • WiMAX2 IEEE 802.16 OFDM/OFDMA (+R&S®FSL-K93)

Key Facts

  • Optional spectrum analysis and digital communications standards
  • Bidirectional test set for displaying all four S-parameters
  • R&S®ZVL3-75: 75 Ω vector network analyzer for TV and CATV measurements
  • Multitrace display for displaying all relevant parameters
  • Distance-to-fault measurement for detecting cable faults
  • Time domain analysis
  • USB connector for R&S®NRP-Z power sensor series for precise power measurements
  • Internal battery and 12 V DC operation
  • Small, compact, lightweight and portable (
