The R&S®Cable Rider ZPH 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 and spectrum analysis. Two different R&S®ZPH models are available to suit different needs, a pure one-port cable and antenna analyzer and a two-port model with additional spectrum analysis and tracking generator features.
Frequency range up to 3 GHz or 4 GHz, upgrade via keycode
One-port model features: DTF, return loss, VSWR and cable loss measurements
Two-port model additionally features S21 measurements, spectrum and interference analysis, AM/FM/ASK/FSK demodulation
Ideal for field use: up to 9-hour battery life, 2.5 kg (5.5 lb), backlit keypad, fast boot time, non-reflective display, small form factor, ruggedized housing (IP51)
With its short boot and warm-up times and fast measurement speed, the R&S®CableRider ZPH gets down to analyzing extremely fast. Measurement setups can be predawn 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.
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.
The battery lasts up to 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®CableRider ZPH is changing the way
users interact with an analyzer – simply touch the screen to add markers and change settings. These features and the ergonomic design make the R&S®CableRider ZPH ideal for fast and efficient on-site measurements.
