   KEYSIGHT N8481A   Description / Specification:    
KEYSIGHT N8481A 18 GHz Thermocouple Power Sensor

The Keysight N8481A 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 18 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:
  1.37 (10 to 30 MHz),
  1.14 (30 to 50 MHz),
  1.08 (50 MHz to 2 GHz),
  1.16 (2 to 12.4 GHz),
  1.23 (12.4 to 18 GHz).
Linearity (25 °C ± 10 °C): ±0.52% (-1 to < +15 dBm), ±0.80% (+15 to +20 dBm).
Connector: N-type (male).

CFT, N8481A sensor without the calibration factor table stored in the EEPROM.
200, APC-7 (male) connector.


Standard Calibration $240.00 *
*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the KEYSIGHT N8481A. 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.

Channel Bandwidth
Channel Bandwidth is the bandwidth over which power is measured. This is usually the bandwidth in which almost all of the power of a signal is contained.

Mismatch Uncertainty
Mismatch Uncertainty is caused by re-reflections between one device (the source) and the device that follows it (the load).

Rise Time
Rise time refers to the time required for a signal to change from a specified low value to a specified high value, usually 10 and 90 percent of pulse-top amplitude (vertical display is linear power).
