Hello Community,   I have now access to an old but quite good networkanalyzer from Agilent E8358A.   They have Ethernet and GPIB, so far I can communicate with labview 2020 only via GPIB.   I try to automate and documentate (boring) my lab measurement on antennas. For that reason I want transfer the .s2p files and maybe Pictures in .png or .jpg to… (Show more)

Hello,   Does anyone know if a verification data disc that comes with a Verification Kit and is labelled for an HP 8720 can be used in an HP 8510C?   The HP 8510C manual states that this can be a cause of verification failure, but I would like to understand the cause and if conversion could allow the use of such a data disc.   Any info is… (Show more)

I need to create a (standards) definition for a coaxial open cal kit standard for which the definitions do not exist. I propose to do this by measuring my new (un-characterized) open device (DUT) S parameters after calibrating the analyzer using an existing (characterized) open-short-load cal kit with the same connector/gender as my unknown (to… (Show more)

Hi, I am trying to calibrate correctly on Network Analyzer but I always see errors at the same frequencies. I want a calibrate between 23-25.5 GHz frequencies. I am using mechanical calibration with Keysight N9918A NA, Keysight 85521A Calibration kit. After calibration, when I check the S11 adn S21, I see that when the calibration kit is… (Show more)

Using the LabView Agilent PNA Series Library, I am able to query the PNA-L for start frequency and number of points for the active trace, but I can't seem to get the stop frequency.  I'm sure this is simple to do, but I cannot find the correct .vi in the library to accomplish this.

Our E5071B VNA has an issue, that when pressing front panel power button, it turn power-off immediately and not start shutdown sequence as it should do. It worked earlier fine, but we had to perform system recovery and after that this isssue appeared. What can be wrong and how this problem can fix?

I recently acquired a HP8752A . This is a wonderful VNA. But I have a question: Each time when I have stored a calibration in internal memory I loose the entire calibration when the VNA is switched OFF. -- is this normal behaviour ? I also checked that the internal buffered RAM had its 5V by the buffer capacitor, it keeps the volatage over… (Show more)

I have an HP 85051A 7mm verification kit with s-parameters on a tape cartridge (serial numbers written on the cartridge match those of the four devices.)   Is there any recommended way to retrieve the files and transcribe them to floppy, USB or just have them e-mailed? I don't have any analyzer or computer with compatible tape drive so I'm… (Show more)

I am attempting to automate the AFR de-embedding process, through the PLTS COM interface.  For reference, I am using .NET in Visual Studio.  I can successfully execute certain commands (such as plts.ImportData(), plts.ImportFile(), etc.), but when using the plts.Afr() command, nothing happens.  Furthermore, using the plts.GetLastError() command… (Show more)

Dear experts. I am a little confused about the "switch term" in VNA error correction model.  Only need in three-sampler vector netwok analyzers? Does those "switch term"  included in calibration coeffient alreadly? And those "switch term"  only need to be considered in 2-port measurement,right? About agilent VNA,which one are four-sampler… (Show more)
