   KEYSIGHT N8485A   Description / Specification:    
KEYSIGHT N8485A 26.5 GHz Thermocouple Power Sensor

The Keysight N8485A 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: 10 MHz to 26.5 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:
  1.33, (10 to 50 MHz),
  1.08 (50 MHz to 100 MHz),
  1.05 (100 MHz to 2 GHZ),
  1.14 (2 GHz to 12.4 GHz),
  1.19 (12.4 GHz to 18 GHz),
  1.26 (18 GHZ to 26.5 GHz).
Linearity (25 °C ± 10 °C): ±0.52% (-1 to < +15 dBm), ±0.80% (+15 to +20 dBm).
Connector: 3.5 mm (male).

CFT, N8485A sensor without the calibration factor table stored in the EEPROM.
033, EEPROM feature with extended frequency range, 10 MHz to 33 GHz.


Standard Calibration $295.00 *
*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the KEYSIGHT N8485A. 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.

Available Gain
Available Gain is the ratio, at a specific frequency, of power available from the output to the power in from the source.

Frequency Span
Frequency Span specifies the range between the start and stop frequencies, also referred to as bandwidth

Peak Envelope Power
Peak envelope power is the maximum value of the envelope power. Envelope power is measured by making the averaging time much less than 1/fm where fm is the maximum frequency component of the modulation waveform. The averaging time is therefore limited on both ends: (1) it must be small compared to the period of the highest modulation frequency, and (2) it must be large enough to be many RF cycles long.
