Wiltron 5431A Test Set
Model: 5431A
Date: 1992
Category: Measurement instruments
Group: Test Set

The 54XXA is a microprocessor controlled scalar measurement system. This system is used to make scalar (magnitude) transmission, reflection, and absolute power measurements. A typical model is shown in Figure 1-1 (facing page). All measurement functions are selectable by using the front panel keys and controls together with the display screen menus. Section III describes this mode of operation. All 54XXA front panel control functions (except POWER on/off) are programmable via the IEEE–488 Interface bus (GPIB). This function can be ordered as an option on all models (refer to paragraph 1-6). Remote operation of the 54XXA using GPIB commands is described in the GPIB User’s Guide for the 54XXA Series Scalar Measurement Systems that is located behind the Supplements/Options tab at the rear of this manual. The measurement frequency range of the 54XXA is determined by: · The range of the internal signal source of the particular model. · The external SWR Autotester and/or detector used with the 54XXA.

GPIB USER’S GUIDE This User’s Guide provides information for operating Series 54XXA Scalar Measurement Systems with the IEEE-488 General Purpose Interface Bus (GPIB). All 54XXA GPIB commands (i.e., Product Specific Commands) are listed and described. The set of IEEE-488 Interface Function Messages recognized by the 54XXA are listed and the 54XXA response described. Included is a brief description of the IEEE-488 General Purpose Interface Bus hardware and the bus data transfer and control functions. The information about the IEEE-488 Interface bus presented in this manual is general in nature. For complete and specific information, refer to the ANSI/IEEE Std 488- 1978 document entitled “IEEE Standard Digital Interface for Programmable Instrumentation”. This document precisely defines the set of dedicated hardware signal lines, Interface functions, protocols, and messages for the Interface bus. This manual is intended to be used in conjunction with the Series 54XXA Scalar Measurement System Operation Manual. Refer to that manual for information about equipment set up for GPIB operation and installation of the National Instruments GPIBPCII/ IIA Interface card and associated Software. For additional information about use of 54XXA systems with the IEEE-488 GPIB bus, refer to Application Note 5400A-3 (located behind this manual).
