R&S ZVL Vector Network Analyzers

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.

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
Features & benefits:
 
- Full one-port (OSM), full two-port (TOSM), and one-path two-port calibration
- Measurement of S-parameters, impedance, admittance, and stability
- Output of results as Smith chart, inverted Smith chart, magnitude and phase, polar diagram, real, imaginary, group delay, VSWR
- Unlimited number1) of traces and channels; overlay display of traces also of different channels in a single diagram
- Trace evaluation: max, min, peak-to-peak, RMS, mean, standard deviation, electrical length, phase delay
- Bandpass filter evaluation in terms of center frequency, bandwidth, ripple, quality factor, attenuation, etc.
