Symptoms / Solutions:
To use a USB connected Rohde and Schwarz NRP-Zxx power sensor (such as the NRP-Z57), you need to install some applications that will allow FDCS to communicate with the unit.
Install the following applications:
- R&S NRP Toolkit (https://www.rohde-schwarz.com/software/nrpz/)
- R&S NRP NI-VISA Passport (https://www.rohde-schwarz.com/software/nrpz/)
After installation is complete, connect the sensor to the computer via USB cable.
Click: Start → Programs → National Instruments → VISA → VISA Interactive Control. The sensor should now appear in the list of connected instruments:
In FDCS, define a new power meter. Select the driver (PowerMeter.NRP_Z11). Select Raw Visa String as the connection type. Type in the connection string that is shown in the VISA Interactive Control window.
