Getting Started
Introduction
The scope of this Startup Guide is to detail the processes of receiving and
installing the network analyzer module and cables that compose the Keysight
M937xA PXIe Vector Network Analyzer module. Additionally, installing the
required software and verifying network analyzer module operation is
documented. If you have any questions after reviewing this information, please
contact your local Keysight Technologies Inc. representative or contact us
through our support Website at
http://www.keysight.com/techicalsupport/main.
Related Documentation
You can find all M937xA PXI network analyzer module documentation and
other resources at: http://na.support.keysight.com/pxi/help
or at the respective product pages on www.keysight.com (go to Document
Library > Manuals).
STEP 1. Unpack and Inspect the Network Analyzer Modules
The network analyzer modules are shipped in materials which prevent
damage from static. The modules should only be removed from the
packaging in an anti-static area ensuring that correct anti-static
precautions are taken. Store all modules in anti-static envelopes when not
in use.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage or destroy electronic components.
Use a static-safe work station to perform all work on electronic assemblies.
Figure 1-1 on page 6 shows a static-safe work station using two types of ESD
protection: conductive table-mat and wrist-strap combination, and conductive
floor-mat and heel-strap combination. Both types, when used together,
provide a significant level of ESD protection. Of the two, only the table-mat and
5
Getting Started
STEP 1. Unpack and Inspect the Network Analyzer Modules
wrist-strap combination provides adequate ESD protection when used alone.
To ensure user safety, the static-safe accessories must provide at least 1
meg-ohm of isolation from ground.
Do NOT use these techniques for a static-safe work station when
working on circuitry with a voltage potential greater than 500 volts.
Figure 1-1
ESD protection setup
Unpack the network analyzer modules from the shipping containers. Keep the
black and red plastic port protectors and the shipping containers for possible
reuse.
Inspect for Damage
After unpacking a network analyzer module, inspect it for any shipping
damage. Report any damage to the shipping agent immediately, as such
damage is not covered by the warranty.

STEP 4. Install the Network Analyzer Modules
Please review all safety information located in Chapter 3 before
proceeding with installing and using the network analyzer module.
These modules can be used in a chassis with a PXIe, or PXI-H chassis slots.
Recommended Best Practices to Ensure Proper and Safe Module
Operating Conditions
— Ensure proper chassis air flow is maintained.
— The use of a Keysight M9018A chassis is recommended for optimum
temperature control. If a different chassis is used, make sure it provides
thermal protection if fans become inoperable or forced air cooling is
obstructed.
— If using the Keysight M9018A PCIe Cable Interface, download the
Keysight Multiple PXIe and AXIe Chassis System Configuration Tool.
Save the file to your local hard drive; do not try to open the file from
the Internet location.
— Use slot blockers and EMC filler panels in empty module slots to ensure
proper operating temperatures. Keysight chassis and slot blockers optimize
module temperature performance and reliability of test.
— Set chassis fans to high or auto. Do not disable fans.
— Position chassis to allow plenty of space around chassis air intake and fan
exhaust.
— At ambient temperatures above 45° C (113° F) set the chassis fan to high.

STEP 4. Install the Network Analyzer Modules
Tools Required for the Installation Procedure
— Phillips #1 torque driver, set to 4 in-lbs (0.45 N.m) - not supplied.
— Socket adapter (part number 5023-1450) - supplied.
— Torque driver (for use with socket adapter), set to 8 in-lb (0.91 N.m) - not
supplied.
— Cable removal tool (part number 5002-3361) - supplied.
Installation Procedure
PXI hardware does not support “hot-swap” (changing network analyzer
modules while power is applied to the chassis) capabilities. Before
installing or removing a module to/from the chassis, power-off the chassis
to prevent damage to the module.
The network analyzer module can be installed in any PXIe or hybrid PXI
slot marked with a peripheral slot compatibility image (solid black
circle fro PXIe, or solid black circle with the letter “H” for hybrid.
1. Make sure that the line cord is plugged in to establish earth ground and
that the chassis power switch is Off (see callouts 1 and 3 in Figure 1-3 on
page 13).
2. Wear a grounded wrist strap for this procedure (see callout 2 in Figure 1-3
on page 13).
3. If the chassis has multiple fan speed settings, ensure that the fan switch is
set to AUTO.
4. Position the chassis to provide ample space between the chassis fan
intake and exhaust vents. Blockage by walls or obstructions affects the air
flow needed for cooling. (Refer to the chassis documentation for more
information about cooling.)
5. Before inserting the network analyzer module into the chassis, back-out
the top mounting screw (see callout 7 in Figure 1-3 on page 13) on the
module to ensure that there is no interference between the screws and the
mounting rails.
6. Holding the module by the injector/ejector handle, slide it into a slot, as
shown in callouts 4 – 6 in Figure 1-3 on page 13.
a. Install the module into the slot of the chassis by placing the module
card edges into the front module guides (top and bottom).
12
Keysight Technologies Startup Guide
Getting Started
STEP 4. Install the Network Analyzer Modules
b. Hold down the silver locking tab while pushing down the
injector/ejector handle to the unlatched (downward) position, and
slide the module to the rear of the chassis.
c. Slide the module completely into the chassis. When you begin to
feel resistance, pull up on the injector/ejector handle to fully inject
the module into the chassis. The injector/ejector handle should lock
into place. (To remove the module from the chassis, you must first
press the injector/ejector handle to unlock it.)
Figure 1-3 Installing the Network Analyzer Module
7. Repeat for other modules, if present.
8. Tighten the top mounting screw (see callout 7 in Figure 1-3) and the
bottom mounting screw (located below the injector/ejector handle) on the
module(s) using a Phillips #1 torque drive set to 4 in-lbs (0.45 N.m).
9. Install EMC filler panels and slot blockers into empty module slots to
assure proper air circulation and operating temperatures.
10.If using only one M937xA module in the chassis, leave the 50 ohm loads
attached as shown in Figure 1-4 on page 14.

General Safety Considerations
Before Applying Power
If this product is not used as specified, the protection provided by
the equipment could be impaired. This product must be used in a
normal condition (in which all means for protection are intact) only.
The measuring terminals on this instrument are designed to be used with
external signals described in Measurement Category I, but NOT with
external signals described in Categories II, III, and IV. The input of this
instrument cannot be connected to the mains.
Servicing
These servicing instructions are for use by qualified personnel only.
To avoid electrical shock, do not perform any servicing unless you
are qualified to do so.
Operating Conditions
Operator is responsible for maintaining safe operating conditions. To
ensure safe operating conditions, modules should not be operated
beyond the full temperature range documented in the M937xA Data
Sheet (http://literature.cdn.keysight.com/litweb/pdf/M9370-90002.pdf ).
Not maintaining safe operating conditions can result in shorter
module lifespans, improper module performance, and user safety
issues. If modules are allowed to exceed the specified full
temperature range, module surface temperatures can cause
discomfort or burns if touched. If a module exceeds the full
temperature range, always allow it to cool before touching it or
removing it from the chassis.
