MORGAN HILL, Calif., Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Anritsu Company introduces
the Microwave Site Master S820E, the world's first handheld cable and antenna
analyzer with frequency coverage up to 40 GHz, which continues Anritsu's
leadership position in the handheld analyzer market it established with the
first broadband Site Master over 15 years ago. In addition to providing the
widest frequency coverage of 1 MHz to 40 GHz, the Site Master S820E offers
field technicians, engineers and wireless network installers industry-leading
dynamic range, directivity, and durability so they can conduct highly accurate
measurements during the installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of
microwave communications systems. Additionally, Anritsu announces the Site
Master S820E will feature Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) measurement



Bench Performance in the Field
With dynamic range of 110 dB up to 40 GHz, the Site Master S820E brings
performance typically only achieved with a benchtop instrument into the field
to address the measurement challenges of today's wireless networks.
Best-in-class frequency resolution of 1 Hz provides maximum frequency
flexibility for users. The wide frequency coverage provides high-resolution
distance resolution, so the handheld analyzer can conduct more accurate
Distance-To-Fault (DTF) measurements.

A powerful processor has been designed into the Site Master S820E, allowing
the analyzer to have a sweep speed of 650 us/data points, improving field
productivity. Site Master S820E delivers the highest directivity in a handheld
analyzer for maximum field accuracy. It also features RF immunity of +17 dBm,
exceeding any other microwave handheld cable and antenna analyzer, so users
can acquire stable, accurate measurements in the harshest RF environments.

Designed for measuring coaxial and waveguide systems, Site Master S820E
conducts all key one-port measurements, such as return loss, VSWR, cable loss,
DTF, phase, and Smith Chart. Users can also conduct two-port transmission
measurements and two-port cable loss tests with the Site Master S820E. The
analyzer features Anritsu's easyTest Tools™ that enables tests to be
standardized for repeatable measurements, as well as Line Sweep Tools for
simplified reporting.

VNA Measurement Capability
Anritsu is developing VNA measurements for the Site Master S820E. The optional
software will expand the measurement capabilities of the cable and antenna
analyzer to include key VNA field measurements, including full-reversing
two-port S-parameters and time domain with gating. A vector voltmeter and A/B
ratio will also be part of the software. Instruments within their recommended
calibration cycle do not need to be sent into a service center to perform
these software option upgrades.

Field-proven Design
Maintaining the Site Master tradition of meeting the needs of field users, the
S820E has a four-hour battery life, providing users with the most field uptime
on a single charge. It also has the largest TFT touchscreen (8.4 inches) with
best-in-class 800x600 resolution so users can easily view results in all
lighting conditions. An intuitive graphical user touch screen interface that
includes a large alpha-numeric keyboard with a customizable EZ name matrix
makes file naming fast, easy, and efficient.

The Microwave Site Master S820E meets MIL-PRF-28800F for use in explosive
atmospheres. Compact, it measures 273 x 199 x 91 (mm) and weighs only 3.0 kg.
Anritsu offers full temperature coax calibration kits from -10 degrees C to
+55 degrees C for precise field measurements. A wide calibration temperature
window of +/-10 degrees C requires fewer calibrations in the field to maximize

Highest Value
The new Site Master S820E series has a U.S. starting price of only $12,950 and
includes many standard features which are cost + options with other
manufacturers. Fully upgradeable (via software option) in the field allows
customers to enhance functionality to meet their growing needs and ensures
optimal returns on the investment. Delivery is four to six weeks ARO.
