The family comprises the four Vector Network Analyzers ZVRE and ZVR as well as ZVCE and ZVC which extend the frequency range to 8 GHz. All models are compact instruments with integrated generator, test set and receiver, each tailored to a specific field of application.
Thanks to the great variety of options and test sets, the analyzers can be tailored even to very special kinds of measurement tasks.
The ZVRE and ZVCE are economy models. The test set of these models comprises two SWR bridges or directional couplers, an RF switch, two measurement channels and one reference channel.
They measure the magnitude and phase of all four S-parameters of a DUT, allow a full two-port calibration (TOSM) and have an exceptionally high measurement accuracy and wide dynamic range.
ZVR and ZVC are universal models. They comprise a test set with two SWR bridges or directional couplers, an RF switch, two measurement channels and unlike ZVRE and ZVCE two reference channels. With this configuration a variety of novel calibration procedures (e.g. TNA) can be performed, which considerably improves the accuracy particularly with noncoaxial applications. ZVR and ZVC are the allrounders of the family and suitable for applications in R+D and production no matter how sophisticated.
