Product description
The Scalar Network Analyzer SNA-2550 is an instrument capable of measuring the impedance matching and the gain
of circuits with a nominal impedance of 50 Ohm.
The measurement is performed by generating a sinusoidal signal, not modulated, with prescribed amplitude and frequency and measuring the input signal to the receiver with a wideband detector; this method has some limitations concerning dynamic range for low level signal (minimum detachable signal), but it has the fundamental advantage that it is easy to measure the conversion gain of circuits with input frequency different from output frequency (for example: frequency converters, frequency multipliers and dividers).
It is equipped with two N connectors for connecting to the device under test:
- RF OUT port (internal generator output) to be connected to the input of the device under test
- RF IN port (internal detector input) to be connected to the output of the device under test
To the RF OUT port it is also connected a bridge circuit for the measurement of the impedance matching, using a second wideband detector.
For proper operation, it needs to be controlled by a PC trough a USB 2.0 port and dedicated software.
It is shipped with an external 230 VAC power supply, but it can be powered from a 12 V battery (11 – 15 VDC) at 800 mA max for mobile use.
