Anritsu has enhanced the Site Master's menu-driven interface to include cable-specific folders of the most popular cables. The characteristics of the cables and all appropriate testing parameters are programmed in the folders, which eliminates setup error and assures sweep accuracy. This new feature perfectly complements Site Master's existing menu operations, which are designed to make the analyzers simple to operate, even for first-time users. Among the capabilities of the menu-driven interface are the ability to store up to ten test setups for fast repeatable testing and storage of up to 200 measurement traces in nonvolatile memory.
Further simplifying operation and providing even more cost-saving ease of use is Anritsu's new InstaCal calibration module. Available as an option on the one-port Site Master models (S113C, S114C, S331C, and S332C), InstaCal can decrease calibration time by as much as 50%. With InstaCal, users are only required to connect the calibration module once, thereby reducing problems such as pin gap, bad thread connections, and other human errors associated with repetitive connections to the test port during multiple calibrations. This saves companies time and training which saves money as well.
The Site Master family is designed specifically for field environments. In addition to being rugged enough to withstand harsh environments and rough handling, the analyzers are so light and small that they can fit in a backpack. Anritsu has also designed the Site Master analyzers with a large high-resolution (640x480) display featuring contrast and back-lighting capabilities, which make it easy to view results under a variety of field conditions. Built-in energy conservation combined with a rechargeable battery pack allows users to extend battery life beyond eight hours. The analyzers can also be operated from a 12.5 V DC source.
