Typical Measurement
The accuracy depends on the load being measured, the quality of calibration and degree of averaging. Typical accuracy for 3 standard loads at 36 points over the available frequency range is tabled below in polar reflection coefficient format, after factory calibration, with averaging = 64 and 100% power output.
  • S11=1.0, magnitude +/-0.005 angle +/-0.6 degrees
  • S11=0.6, magnitude +/-0.006 angle +/-0.4 degrees
  • S11=0.0, magnitude +/-0.007
System Impedance Zo
(user defined)

User defined - must be a real, positive number.

(used to calculate VSWR, return loss and reflection coefficient)
Measurement speed 25ms (no averaging)
(user defined)

512 point, 3 error bilinear transform correction held in non-volatile memory with user adjustable frequency span.

Comes factory calibrated against 5 known loads, using a HP8753D network analyzer with HP85032B Cal kit. The unit is supplied with a full calibration certificate.

Optional custom calibration can be performed using one of the available calibration kits (see optional accessories).
