Vector Impedance Analyzer: VIA Echo

The Echo is a hand-held Vector Impedance Analyzer (Vector Network Analyzer), Spectrum Analyzer, Power Meter, and Frequency Domain Reflectometer (FDR) in one instrument. Echo models come in frequency ranges of 4MHz-to-1.0GHz or 4MHz-to-2.5GHz. The VIA Echo Network Analyzer was designed for performing antenna testing and tuning, transmission line testing and fault locating, cellular site turn-up testing and troubleshooting. It can be used for individual component testing, system or network testing. In a production environment Echo can be used to verify components and assemblies the same as equivalent Agilent (old HP) Network Analyzers at a fraction of the cost.

The VIA Echo’s all come with two ports S11 and S21 to perform both reflective and loss/gain measurements. The full suit of test parameters in the Echo instruments is:

  • SWR
  • Return Loss (dB)
  • Phase Angle
  • Reactance (X)
  • Resistance (R)
  • Impedance (Z)
  • Gamma Magnitude
  • Gamma Angle
  • Linear Gain
  • Phase Gain
  • Spectrum Analysis (specific models)
  • Frequency Domain Reflectometer (specific models)
  • Power Meter (specific models)

In addition to being a 1.0GHz or 2.5GHz Network Analyzer, the Echo is light at 2.2lbs (1Kg), compact, rugged, and weather resistant. It is portable and operates about 3 hours on a single charge. It has a backlit quarter VGA display that can show any two measurements bother graphically and digitally and a third measurement digitally only. Echo is self-calibrating and has a “Cable Null” feature, user friendly menus, and comes complete with a calibration load set.

Supporting Software – Echo PC Vision is supplied with every Echo to upload, customize, save, and print test results. Echo can be operated in remote control via the USB 2.0 connection with Echo PC Vision or upload any of 250 tests stored in its memory. Echo PC Vision adds full color graphics, Smith Chart and Spectrum Analyzer views with color markers

We just received word today that Nokia, who is working on a huge country wide cellular system in India, and after extensive testing, has approved the use of the VIA Echo 2500 for certifying their cell sites there.   

Here’s a brief update on improvements requested by Nokia and other customers that are currently available in the VIA Echo instruments:

Echo PC Vision has been updated to Version 2008.3 and is available on our website.
Improvements include:    Faster upload times
Reduced USB port hang-ups for continuous data flow
Improved FDR data display

VIA Echo 1000SF & 2500 Changes:
Power Meter can now accept any input attenuator up to 50dB. The F3 menu for the Spectrum Analyzer lets the user adjust for the size of attenuator, gives auto-computed direct read results.  It even has a default attenuator ON/OFF feature for those using a standard XX dB attenuator.


Power Ranges (No attenuator) – Plus 20dBm (100,Watts) to Neg 30dBm (1microWatt)
(30dB attenuator)  – Plus 50dBm (100Watts) to 0 dBm (1milliWatt)

New Accessories:          30dB Attenuator, Part Number 6025-0265, $350.00
N Terminator Set, Part Number 6025-0270, $250.00

Now included (NO-CHARGE) with all VIA Echo 2500’s.

As frequencies go above 1500MHz it becomes more important to use an “open terminator” built to match the length of the short and matched terminators.  AEA Technology has designed and manufactures this new accessory as an all-in-one terminator set.  We highly recommend it’s use with the Echo 2500 and have started shipping it as standard.  It is optional for the Echo 1000 & 1000SF.  Those instruments still receive the independent Short and Matched terminators.  The N-Terminator Set (pictured below) is available now.

 


The pre-amplifier will lower the Spectrum Analyzer’s noise floor to -125+ dBm

Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR): 20/20 TDR
Click here to see our 20/20 TDR’s Display with Sample Cables & Events
View Datasheet Product Accessories

The 20/20 Step Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR) was designed to provide the clearest picture of coaxial or twisted pair cable lengths and to pin-point cable faults.   Step TDR’s, unlike, Pulse TDR’s have no dead-zone on any range and they can provide an impedance (Z) reading for the cable, both graphically and digitally.

Additionally, the 20/20 Step TDR, like the Tektronix® 1502C, can be used on either coax or twisted pair cables and provide a clearer picture of cable faults or events including:

  • Shorts
  • Opens
  • Wet cable
  • Bridged taps
  • Load coils
  • Split pairs
  • Cable kinks
  • Crushed cable
  • Cable faults
  • Series resistive faults
  • Shunt faults
  • Splitters
  • Poor connections
  • Poor quality cable
  • Lossy cable
  • Other impedance deviations

Frequency Domain Reflectometers (FDR) test cable at specific frequencies or frequency bands.  Time Domain Reflectometers (TDR) test a cable against the manufacturer’s Characteristic Impedance, which basically tests the cable for any and all frequencies. The 20/20 TDR has 16 different models depending on application. They are used in broadcast, wireless, cellular, land mobile, telephone, Voice-Data-Video, RF, CATV, aerospace, military, or special applications such as Time-Based TDRs, or Project IceCube at the South Pole.  Any where there is a need to test cable for high bandwidth applications our 20/20 TDR’s can accurately locate cable faults, save troubleshooting time, and reduce service call costs.
