The R&S®Cable Rider ZPH is a one-port analyzer that has all the essential basic measurement capabilities required for installing and maintaining antenna systems in the field. Its unique features ensure fast and efficient cable and antenna measurements. The easy-to-use analyzer features a touchscreen and large keypad.
There is no need to calibrate the analyzer before use. It is reliably and accurately calibrated before leaving the factory. Should calibration be needed to eliminate the effects of additional cables or adapters used to connect the analyzer to the device under test (DUT), the R&S®ZN-Z103 automatic calibration unit performs the calibration in just one step. With its short boot and warm-up times and fast measurement speed, the R&S®Cable Rider ZPH gets down to analyzing without much time loss. Measurement setups can be predrawn and settings preconfigured. Thanks to the wizard function, fast and accurate measurements are performed in a single step. Generating measurement reports is easy with the R&S®InstrumentView software. The battery lasts an entire work day on just one charge. The keypad is illuminated to facilitate working in dim environments. The leading-edge capacitive touchscreen of the R&S®Cable Rider ZPH is changing the way users interact with an analyzer – simply touch the screen to add markers and to change settings. These features and the ergonomic design make the R&S®Cable Rider ZPH ideal for fast and efficient on-site measurements.
Fast measurements – no calibration required Understanding the need to quickly perform measurements, the R&S®Cable Rider ZPH is factory-precalibrated over the supported frequency and temperature ranges. The factory calibration removes the drift error, which can be a hassle when you have to keep calibrating because the measured frequency and operating temperature change. No calibration reminder will pop up on the screen and interrupt measurements. The Rohde&Schwarz calibration lab performs stringent calibration during production to minimize measurement errors and provide reliable measurement results. A calibration certificate is included with the analyzer. When the calibration interval has lapsed, the analyzer can be sent back to Rohde&Schwarz for recalibration.
Fast deployment with the wizard function For fast deployment, all settings and measurement steps can be preconfigured using the wizard function. The field technician only needs to execute the test sequences as shown on the display. The measurement instructions can be in pictorial form with short descriptions to provide clear step-by-step guidance for the field technician. The setting for each test sequence is preconfigured, eliminating the need to provide special dedicated operational training for the field technician. Since there is no need to change settings for different measurements, test time is reduced during installation and maintenance. For the same measurement at multiple sites, simply load the measurement set to all analyzers – fast deployment thanks to the wizard function.
