The idea of creating an all-Italian version of an Antenna Analyser was born as a challenge.After comparing many trade instruments, I decided to build the one that encompasses all the best features and after nearly six months of testing, METROVNA was born! With this sophisticated and useful tool you can make measurements on RF lines, antennas, L / C filters, baluns, crystals etc. in a practical and accurate way.
I am a Radio Amateur, and my aim is to supply a technologically advanced instrument that is simple to use and economical to obtain.This tool is very useful, perhaps essential, to a modern Amateur struggling with the development of transmission systems, calibration of filters or just to measure the antenna system’s SWR.
Another goal is make it completely independent of the bulky presence of a PC and make it as flexible as possible for field use.
This tool can be easily interfaced to all new technological devices, such as: Notebooks, PDAs, smartphones and desktop PCs.Furthermore, the software can be installed into any computer platform such as Linux, Windows, Mac and Android.
In this manner you can get very useful measurements directly below the antenna.
There are three new models – MetroVNA Pro Touch 100KHz/180MHz (Yellow ) , 100KHz/55MHz (Green), 100KHz/250 MHz (Grey)
MetroVna is a modern Antenna Analyzer that works from 100KHz/180MHz and covers all bands from 630 to 2mt. The tool allows the user to perform measurements on antennas such as dipoles, vertical directives, or home made antennas. Unlike otheranalyzers, this also allows you to operate in broadcast mode for measuring filters, attenuators or other types of more complexmeasures.
Thanks to the large backlit Color Touch Screen you can view all the measures, with traces of different colors and refresh of 0.5 ms.Thanks to the powerful 32 bit micro the tool is a breeze and allows fast and accurate real time measurements. The convenientTouch Screen allows to interface the user quickly and naturally, the instrument is equipped with a comfortable keypad membraneswitch, for uses more burdensome. The case is of sturdy aluminum with convenient BNC connectors.
The MetroVna allows you to carry out all measures SWR, R, z with stroke, | X |, RL, TLand displays them one at a time or simultaneously on large colour display colors 3.1“. Numerous functions have been included for the most demanding radio amateurin his 10 User Menu. A special feature is the MULTI menu, you can view the SWR of ben 6 bands to choose from and also set theexact interest rates. This menu is useful for the development of antennas and multiband dipoles.
Thanks to the generous internal Li-ion battery the instrument is self-contained andWireless operation it is possible to performmeasurements under the antenna and monitor the measures comfortably on a laptop or smartphone remotely within a radius of about 5 Mt. The MetroVna is compatible with the best software as VNA/J, IG/VNA or BlueVna and works on all platforms Win, Linux, Mac, Android. These programs also offer the possibility to export the data to Excel, Pdf and other formats. Create graphscomparing measurements stored on hd, and more.
Through the USB interface it is possible to interface the instrument to your PC and simultaneously charge the internal battery(included). The MetroVna Pro Touch has avery Sturdy aluminum case, measuring only 125 x 95 x 20 mm and weighs only 200 grams. This allows you to carry it comfortably in your pocket, tool vacation, an expedition or wherever you go, kit include mounted pcba,enclosure,packaging and you can download multilingual manual directly from the website.
