Impedance Analyzer

NEW Impedance Analyzer

ZA57630

Features

A diverse array of functions to suit any application!
Highly repeatable and accurate measurements.
Accurate assessments conducted under actual usage conditions.

Electronic parts and materials may indicate varying characteristics at different measurement frequencies or when different signal levels are applied. To assess true characteristics, it is important to take measurements under actual operating conditions by sweeping the frequency, AC amplitude and DC bias.

MEASUREMENT RANGE

Auto range

Takes measurements by setting the optimal measurement range automatically while monitoring measurement results. This is effective when there are significant changes in measurement data.

Fixed range

The measurement range is fixed, which prevents discontinuity (steps) in the measured value caused by changes in the range.

 


 

 

MEASUREMENT DELAY FUNCTION

If sweep parameters such as frequency or AC amplitude are changed while sweep is in progress, incorrect measurement results can be generated due to transient response.
The time until measurements start after parameters are changed can be delayed.
Two delay types are available: “Measurement start delay” and “Measurement delay”

 


 

 

AUTOMATIC HIGH DENSITY SWEEP

This function automatically raises the frequency density only for sections where the measurement data changes suddenly during frequency sweep measurements.
During resonance characteristic measurements of devices like piezoelectric vibrators and crystal oscillators, this function is useful.

 


 

 

ERROR CORRECTION FUNCTION

Corrections to causes of measurement errors, for accurate assessments.

 

To conduct accurate measurements, various measurement error causes such as residual impedance and cable length must be corrected properly.

Open correction

Reduces errors caused by residual admittance

Short correction

Reduces errors caused by residual impedance

Load correction

Corrects deviations from true values using samples with known values as standard impedance

Port extension

Corrects phase errors due to transmission delay time when using long cables

Slope compensation

Removes the effect of potential fluctuation wave included in the measurement signal. Effective for measurements of samples such as batteries with potential changes due to charging and discharging

Equalizing

Measures the frequency characteristics of sensors, cables and other externally connected measurement devices, and corrects the amount of error of those measurement devices

Input weighting

Corrects the probe attenuation or pre-amp gain

Self-calibration

Self-calibrates errors

 


 

 

MARKER CONTROL

Reads the measurement values for X, Y1 and Y2 shown on the graph.
Up to 8 markers can be used.

Δ Marker

Displays the difference from the standard marker (Marker 1)

ΔTRKG Marker

Displays the difference in the same way as the difference marker. When marker 1 is moved, it moves while keeping the difference in the sweep value constant.

Marker search function

Automatically searches points that match the setting conditions

SEQUENCE MEASUREMENT FUNCTION

Multiple measurement conditions are set in advance, and this function conducts measurements in order under those conditions.
The sweep range can be split into segments, with measurements taken under different conditions for each segment range.
Enables efficient measurements of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC), and other devices with characteristics that vary with voltage.

 


 

 

GRAPH DISPLAY

SINGLE/SPLIT display

Select from “SINGLE” with one graph shown per screen, or “SPLIT” with two graphs shown top and bottom

Phase display control

±180°, 0° to +360°, −360° to 0°, UNWRAP (continuous display), 360° shift, aperture (group delay characteristics)

Trace control

Allows overwriting of measurement data trace (MEAS) and up to 8 reference data traces (REF)

Auto store

After sweep measurement is completed, this function automatically copies the MEAS trace to the REF trace.

RESONANT FREQUENCY TRACKING FUNCTION

During measurement of samples with resonance, this function automatically tracks the measurement frequency with the sample resonant frequency. Measurement can always be conducted to match the resonant frequency. A convenient function for continuous measurements close to the resonant frequency of piezoelectric devices.

RESONANT FREQUENCY TRACKING FUNCTION
Resonant frequency changes (1.6 kHz to 1.5858 kHz),

EQUIVALENT CIRCUIT ESTIMATION FUNCTION

A function that determines the LCR element value (values for impedance, electrostatic capacitance and resistance) by applying the impedance characteristics acquired with frequency sweep measurements to equivalent circuit models.
The following 6 models are included.

EXTERNAL REFERENCE CLOCK

An external 10 MHz clock signal can be used as the reference clock. Using a reference clock with a higher precision than the internal reference clock helps to improve the measurement frequency accuracy and stability.
The use of a reference clock common with other devices also allows for the same frequency accuracy.
