I am trying to turn off beep sound in Vector Network Analyzer when the limit test displays fail. How to do that ?
Thanks in advance.
I am not a Keysight employee, so I am probably wrong, but I suspect that there is a very slight possibility that giving the model number might help you get a useful answer.
The model name is E5071C from keysight technologies.( Agilent)

drkirkby, of course you are right :-) a model number and a firmware version are almost always necessary to answer most VNA related questions.
Prathiba - I don't have an ENA in my lab right now, so this dialog will probably look different on your ENA, but usually, there is a setting in the Limit Setup interface to turn sound on or off when limits fail. Here is what it looks like on the PNA:
Thank you so much for your help. But in the VNA which I'm using ,I don't
find sound option in limit test interface.
I did a quick look around the E5071C online help file and I also couldn't find a way to turn the sound off. So you might have to disable the speaker from the windows OS if you really don't want to hear the sound. This won't help you much right now, but we have made the firmware for ENAs and PNAs common, so all the new models have the same software and no more of these pesky little differences.
Okay thanks for helping me out. Appreciated.
I don't have an ENA, but by some rather devious means, I have managed to get the ENA firmware to run in an XP virtual machine using VirtualBox on my Solaris system. I only have an old ENA firmware version, and to be honest can't be bothered to update it, as it would need me to update to Windows 10 I would expect. That said, I have
* Firmware AS.10.06
Neither reading the documention, nor hunting around any menus, could I find any way to turn the bleeper off.
If I were the original poster, I would be tempted to update to the laterst possible firmware release possible, and see if there's any way to disable the bleeper there. If not, put in a request for an enhancement formally. It would seem a very basic thing to want to do - I can do that on my old 8753 and 8720 series instruments.
This is the screen I see when I poke around the limit lines. I can't see any way to disable the bleeper.
