79. The main window of the R&S EFL
80. The R&S EFL210 is connected to
the PC using a USB cable. However,
the interface will actually create a
virtual serial port (RS-232) for the
EFL Driver. It is a good idea to check
the Device Manager to confirm that
the driver has been properly setup
and to read the COM port number. If
your computer has other COM ports,
for instance because you have a
Bluetooth adapter, you will get some
odd COM port like I did: in my case it
is COM16. You may need to manually
configure the R&S EFL Suite to use
the specific COM port.
81. The About screen of the R&S EFL
Suite. I tested the latest v4.15.
82. No doubt a useful feature: you
can import your company logo and
input your company details. They will
then be included in the automatically
83. Next configuration: Which COM
port is attributed to the R&S EFL210?
Hopefully you did as I suggested and
looked it up in the device manager.
84. Once connected the R&S EFL
Suite will read out the memory of
the instrument. This takes only a few
85. On the right side you can now
choose what you wish to download
from the instrument to the computer:
data logs, graph logs (actual screen
shots) or channel plans.
86. The data logs can be viewed on
the PC and you can check them, so
that they are included in the report
generated by the R&S EFL Suite.
87. A perfect looking report, gener-
ated automatically by the R&S EFL
Suite and using our custom logo and
88. Of course you can generate
reports with screen shots as well.
89. Just select which screen shots
you want to include, using the “Mark
to print” option. It is great that you
can export these screen shots as
regular pictures, too. This way you
can use your own report templates,
for instance using Microsoft Office
