We would like to use Calibration Executive to calibrate NI 5673, but do not have an R&S FSU.

We would like to use Calibration Executive to calibrate NI 5673, but do not have an R&S FSU.  The "note" in the required equipment table mentions: National Instruments strongly recommends using the instruments specified above when calibrating the NI 5673/5673E module. Substitution of instruments is permitted by Calibration Executive software, but National Instruments cannot guarantee. . .  Does that mean there is still a way to automate measurements using a different Spec An, or does it mean we'll simply be able to designate a different Spec An, but have to make the measurements manually at each point?  We're interested in using the Agilent E4440A we have.

Greetings,

 

You will be able to designate a different Spectrum Analyzer, but because the Agilent Spectrum Analyzer is not on the list of supported hardware you'll have to take the measurements manually.

 

Thanks,

Thanks, James, for the quick reply.  That is what I thought, but I wanted to make sure.  In many cases, that's not a problem, but in some cases, the number of data points makes it a daunting task.

 

Best regards
