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.

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.
  • Optional spectrum analyzer functionality (R&S®ZVL-K1) with full network analyzer capability available at the same time

1) Limited by available RAM capacity
