KEYSIGHT N8487A 50 GHz Thermocouple Power Sensor

The Keysight N8487A Thermocouple Power Sensor is the replacement solution for 8480 Series Power Sensors. The new power sensor is integrated with EEPROM feature, which allows users to calibrate the power sensors without manually entering the calibration factors to the power meter. By comparing to legacy 8480 Series Power Sensors, there are tremendous improvements such as wider dynamic range and frequency range, better accuracy, linearity, repeatability, and SWR.

Frequency range: 50 MHz to 50 GHz.
Dynamic power range: -35 to +20 dBm.
Damage level (average power): +25 dBm.
Damage level (peak power): 15 W/2 µs.
Maximum SWR 25 °C ± 10 °C:
  1.08 (50 MHz to 100 MHz),
  1.05 (100 MHz to 2 GHZ),
  1.10 (2 GHz to 12.4 GHz),
  1.16 (12.4 GHz to 18 GHz),
  1.22 (18 GHZ to 26.5 GHz),
  1.30 (26.5 GHz to 40 GHz),
  1.34 (40 GHz to 50 GHz).
Linearity (25 °C ± 10 °C): ±0.52% (-1 to < +15 dBm), ±0.80% (+15 to +20 dBm).
Connector: 2.4 mm (male).

Standard Calibration $350.00 *
*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the KEYSIGHT N8487A. Price does not in most cases include measurement performance data. Pricing does include NIST traceable calibration and issue of a calibration certificate and calibration label. Pricing may vary slightly due to volume and location of laboratory supporting calibration. Volume pricing may apply. On-site fees may apply depending on logistics, location and volume of work to be completed during the visit.

Adjacent Channel Power
Adjacent Channel Power is the power from a modulated communications channel that leaks into an adjacent channel. This leakage is usually specified as a ratio to the power in the main channel, but is sometimes an absolute power.

Fall Time
Fall time is the time required for the amplitude of a pulse to decrease (fall) from a specified value (usually 90 percent of the peak value exclusive of overshoot or undershoot) to another specified value (usually 10 percent of the maximum value exclusive of overshoot or undershoot).

Overshoot is the distortion that follows a major transition; the difference between the peak power point and the pulse-top amplitude computed as a percentage of the pulse-top amplitude.
