KEYSIGHT N8482B 6 GHz Thermocouple Power Sensor

The Keysight N8482B 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: 100 kHz to 6 GHz.
Dynamic power range: -5 to +44 dBm.
Damage level (average power): +49 dBm.
Damage level (peak power): 500 W/1 µs.
Maximum SWR 25 °C ± 10 °C:
  1.08 (100 kHz to 2 GHz),
  1.16 (2 to 6 GHz).
Linearity (25 °C ± 10 °C): ±0.52% (+29 to < +39 dBm), ±1.66% (+39 to +44 dBm), negligible at other power ranges.
Connector: N-type (male).

Standard Calibration $240.00 *
*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the KEYSIGHT N8482B. 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.

Average Power
Average power means that the energy transfer rate is to be averaged over many periods of the lowest frequency involved. For a CW signal, the lowest frequency and highest frequency are the same, so average power and power are the same. For an amplitude modulated wave, the power must be averaged over many periods of the modulation component of the signal as well.

A harmonic of a wave is a component frequency of the signal that is an integer multiple of the fundamental frequency, i.e. if the fundamental frequency is f, the harmonics have frequencies 2f, 3f, 4f, . . . etc.

Phase Noise
Phase noise is the frequency domain representation of rapid, short-term, random fluctuations in the phase of a waveform, caused by time domain instabilities. Phase noise (L(f)) is typically expressed in units of dBc/Hz, representing the noise power relative to the carrier contained in a 1 Hz bandwidth centered at a certain offsets from the carrier.
