Anritsu Company Enhances ‘E’ Series Site MasterTM and Cell MasterTM Handheld Analyzers
Anritsu Company announces it has enhanced its “E” series Site Master and Cell Master handheld analyzers with the introduction of easyTest ToolsTM. Experienced engineers and field technicians can use easyTest Tools to create, deliver, and display cable and antenna analyzer work instructions that allow for more accurate tests to be conducted, more repeatable results to be achieved, and improved overall productivity when deploying, installing, and maintaining wireless networks.
Detailed work instructions, called easyTestTM files, for the respective instrument’s cable and antenna analyzer mode can be created on a PC using easyTest Tools. The files can be written with a few simple tools, allowing experienced users to conveniently share their knowledge with less experienced technicians. All setups, procedures and images are stored in an ETT file, for delivery via email.
The “E” series Site Master and Cell Master models have modified firmware to recognize the files, which are conveniently displayed on the analyzer screen. Once initiated, the setups in the ETT file are recalled automatically, so the instrument is in the proper measurement mode.
easyTest Tools is compatible with the SiteMaster S33xE and S36xE analyzers, as well as the MT821xE Cell Master models. The Site Master analyzers cover up to 4 GHz or 6 GHz, and can be configured to include either a 4- or 6-GHz spectrum analyzer, 2-port transmission measurement with built-in 32V bias tee, interference analyzer with spectrogram displays, a channel scanner, power meter, high-accuracy power meter, and GPS receiver for time and location stamping. Because of their multi-functional capabilities, the S33xE and S36xE analyzers eliminate the need to carry and learn multiple instruments.
Compact handheld base station analyzers, the MT821xE Cell Master models have been specifically developed for cell site technicians to meet virtually all of the measurement needs in and around a cell site of 2G, 3G and WiMAX networks. Cell Master features over 30 analyzers in one to meet virtually every measurement need.

Anritsu Launches easyTest ToolsTM
Anritsu Company launched easyTest ToolsTM to expand the company’s “E” series Cell Master and Site Master portable analyzers. The novel easyTest Tools facilitates field technicians and engineers to develop, deliver, and display antenna and cable analyzer work instructions that facilitate performing more precise tests to achieve more repeatable results, and enhance overall productivity. Thereby, easyTest Tools support effective deployment, installation, and maintenance of wireless networks.
The easyTest Tools produce easyTestTM files, or the detailed work instructions over a PC, for the antenna and cable analyzer mode of the instrument. The files allow users to conveniently write through few simple tools to enable experienced engineers in effectively sharing their expertise with trainees and subordinates. All the images, setups, and procedures are deposited in an ETT file, for delivery through email. The “E” series Site Master and Cell Master models come with modified firmware to identify files that are displayed over the analyzer screen. The setups in the ETT file are automatically recalled up on initiation to switch the instrument into measurement mode.
The easyTest Tools is suitable for MT821xE Cell Master models and the SiteMaster S36xE and S33xE analyzers. The MT821xE Cell Master models are compact handheld base station analyzers that are specifically developed to address various measurement needs of cell site technicians working in WiMAX, 2G, and 3G networks. Cell Master comes with more than 30 analyzers in a single instrument for use in all types of measurements.
The Site Master S36xE and S33xE analyzers measure up to 6 or 4 GHz and are configured to comprise either a 6- or 4-GHz spectrum analyzer. Other features of the analyzers include dual port transmission measurement with in-built 32V bias tee, GPS receiver for location and time stamping, interference analyzer with spectrogram displays, power meter, channel scanner, and high-accuracy power meter. The multi-functional capabilities of Site Master analyzers invalidate the need for multiple instruments.
