Affordable, Portable, Ready for the Field

Handheld Platform

The Tektronix NetTek analyzer is a revolutionary portable field tool. When combined with various test modules, the Y350C offers proven measurement capability at a surprisingly low price, in a rugged, easy-to-use package, suitable for all field environments.


Easy to Use

The NetTek analyzer is based around the familiar Windows CE operating system. As a result, users will spend less time learning the instrument and more time troubleshooting the network. Furthermore, built-in help guides speed the measurement process.

Common measurements have been optimized for quick, repeatable results. For example, novice users can display results with straightforward Windows-like zoom and resize controls.


Touch Screen

The Windows CE interface is combined with a rugged touch screen. User controls and buttons only appear on the screen when they are needed, making measurements simpler to perform. The screen is operated by pressure, meaning that even a gloved finger can reliably operate the instrument in cold weather.


Field Rugged

The NetTek analyzer is designed to withstand day to day abuse wherever testing is required. The NetTek analyzer and each module feature a magnesium alloy shell, bonded with a rubber skin for maximum impact resistance and rigidity. All ports feature a sealed rubber cover. The unit may be operated over a temperature range of -10 °C to 50 °C, and stored from -40 °C to +60 °C.

The NetTek analyzer design needs no fan or ventilation ports, maximizing resistance to dirt and dust.

PC Connectivity

The NetTek analyzer is designed to easily work with the PCs required for maintaining today's networks. The instrument includes as standard two PC card slots, RS-232 port, parallel port, and an IR port. A floppy disk drive can be added as an option. The Y350C can also be controlled remotely using the optional Virtual CE interface. The platform includes support for vxHpc terminal emulator software. Further, all of these devices are Windows CE compatible - meaning data and test results can be shared quickly with any PC operating Windows 95/98/2000, Me, XP or NT.

The Modules and the Platform

The Tektronix NetTek Y350C platform includes the display, power supply, CPU and battery compartments. Measurement modules can then be attached to the back. Up to four modules can be attached at once. A variety of modules and options allows you to tailor the instrument to service the standards and interfaces in use in your network.


Y350C platform combined with test modules.

The modular design also means that the instrument can easily be upgraded. New measurements or standards can be added with software upgrades, or with additional modules.

The NetTek platform today supports not only the YBT250 test module for spectrum and base station testing, but also the YBA250 module for antenna and transmission line analysis, the YBT1 for T1 testing and the YM and YSS series OTDR modules for optical troubleshooting.
