Anritsu Company announces it has enhanced its “E” series Site Master and Cell Master handheld analyzers with the introduction of easyTest Tools. Experienced engineers and field technicians can use easyTest Tools to create, deliver, and display cable and antenna analyzer work instructions that allow for more accurate tests to be conducted, more repeatable results to be achieved, and improved overall productivity when deploying, installing, and maintaining wireless networks.
Detailed work instructions, called easyTest™ files, for the respective instrument’s cable and antenna analyzer mode can be created on a PC using easyTest Tools. The files can be written with a few simple tools, allowing experienced users to conveniently share their knowledge with less experienced technicians. All setups, procedures and images are stored in an ETT file, for delivery via email. The “E” series Site Master and Cell Master models have modified firmware to recognize the files, which are conveniently displayed on the analyzer screen. Once initiated, the setups in the ETT file are recalled automatically, so the instrument is in the proper measurement mode.
EasyTest Tools is compatible with the SiteMaster S33xE and S36xE analyzers, as well as the MT821xE Cell Master models. The Site Master analyzers cover up to 4 GHz or 6 GHz, and can be configured to include either a 4- or 6-GHz spectrum analyzer, 2-port transmission measurement with built-in 32V bias tee, interference analyzer with spectrogram displays, a channel scanner, power meter, high-accuracy power meter, and GPS receiver for time and location stamping. Because of their multi-functional capabilities, the S33xE and S36xE analyzers eliminate the need to carry and learn multiple instruments.
Compact handheld base station analyzers, the MT821xE Cell Master models have been specifically developed for cell site technicians to meet virtually all of the measurement needs in and around a cell site of 2G, 3G and WiMAX networks. Cell Master features over 30 analyzers in one to meet virtually every measurement need.
