TE Series RF Vector Analyzers

This unit has been written into our testing and calibration procedures for many different components and works extremely well with our production requirements and demands. It's a very fine tool and in great demand in our shop. I wish we had one for EVERY bench.

We just finished using it for our 2nd NMR probe workshop (use it to show how to design NMR probes, waveguides, etc.). I'm very happy with it and it has been worth the purchase.

Such important industries as those producing microchips and solar cells rely on plasma process equipment. Many of their thin-film deposition and etching process tools use RF to deliver power to plasmas that enable these processes. The RF power delivery and the resulting currents and voltages that determine film properties are largely dependent upon the chamber's impedance, and issues with these chambers can make the process tools produce scrap devices.

Several years ago, we looked at many different types of RF impedance analyzers to help us understand plasma chamber and matching network impedances. After comparing price, accuracy and portability across a wide range of units, we settled on the TE1000 as an optimum. On top of these criteria, ease-of-use stands out, and makes it so that many technicians can quickly learn to gather the data needed to make critical decisions for equipment troubleshooting.

We have been using the TE 1000 for many years now, for developing and testing antennas and related equipment, and over this time it has proved itself to be an invaluable measuring instrument.

It's reliability, small size and portability make it particularly useful for field testing of antenna prototypes and installations. We also use it as a bench instrument for quality control testing during manufacture of our products.

The range of data output formats available from the TE 1000 is a highlight for us, as is the ease with which the system impedance can be changed to suit the characteristic impedance of different cable and equipment types.

Being able to measure R, L and C is another feature of the instrument we have found very useful, particularly in design and prototyping work.

The accuracy of the instrument is very good when compared against our "High End" but definitely not portable, Network Analyser equipment.

We continue to use and endorse the TE 1000 having found no other equipment to match it's functionality, cost effectiveness and portability.
