VECTOR NETWORK ANALYZERS (Compatible with DAK Single Probe and DAK-TL Systems)

Flexible solutions

Description

Vector network analyzers (VNA) are used to measure the impedance at the end of the open-ended coaxial probe, while the DAK software calculates the dielectric constant from the measurement. Our solutions offer flexibility in your choice of VNA. 

Please note: DAK probes have a line impedance of 50 Ω. To ensure compatibility, the VNA must also have 50 Ω line impedance at the output port. Please also note that DAK in some cases can only be operated with GPIB-USB adapter; some older Agilent ENA or PNA models have a LAN interface, which is incompatible with VISA standards and, therefore, DAK.
