I have bought the E5061B-3L5 without 005 option for impedance analysis.
Can I still use S11 to measure the impedance of a circuit?
I am a newcomer, can anybody give me some hints?
Moving your thread to the Network Analyzer forum for traction.
What's an order of magnitude value for the impedance you want to measure? Are you trying to measure something on a 50 Ohm connector, or are you trying to measure something like a capacitor with a fixture?
S11 is directly related to impedance, so you can convert S11 to impedance. You can even see it directly if you look on the Smith Chart view in a VNA. Or you can convert S11 to impedance - equations and a spreadsheet here

However, it looks like that option 005
allows you to use other hardware, such as supported test fixtures, with that ENA. Without that hardware, I suspect that the option would be pretty useless to you. But I don't work for Keysight, and I don't have time to look in detail at what the option does.
