Tool software is also provided for data analysis, real-time data acquisition, and curve Se & Recall. Bytrace dragging and comparison,traces from different windows can be moved to the same window for math operations.


Typical Applications

Performance measurement and maintenanceof cable and antenna system

S3101 cable and antenna analyzer is developed for the daily measurement & maintenance of cable & antenna system, which can realize the measurement of VSWR, return loss, cable loss etc.. It has unique FDR technique, and with functions of Distance-to-Fault (DTF) VSWR and Distance-to-Fault (DTF) return loss, it can precisely locate even tiny problems, and thus eliminate potential risks. During the installation, calibration and routine maintenance of the cable & antenna system, antenna analyzer can help users to quickly estimate the status of the transmission and feed line system, which can improve the maintenance efficiency of running base stations and speed up the installation and calibration of new base stations.
