Meet the Demand in E-band Telecommunication Applications
The E8486A waveguide power sensors are designed with a WR-12 flange connector. The E8486A makes precise and direct waveguide measurements in the E-band frequency range and is compatible with most Keysight power meters. A wide dynamic range of -60 to +20 dBm and a SWR performance of 1.06 minimize measurement uncertainty caused by mismatch, providing high accuracy even with low power signals. Keysight's E8486A delivers the precision and accuracy you need for E-band applications in a single power sensor.
Reliable Measurements in the 50 to 110 GHz Frequency Range
Covering the V-band, E-band and W-band spectrums, Agilents waveguide power sensors offer best SWR, high reliability and low loss — making them ideal for MMIC and automotive radar applications. Additionally, they have a 50 MHz calibration port to reduce measurement uncertainties. And with the Keysight E8486A (Option 200) waveguide sensor, you also get a wide dynamic range spanning from -60 dBm to +20 dBm.
Best SWR Available
In RF and microwave power measurements, the largest single source of error is usually sensor and source mismatch. To minimize any measurement uncertainty caused by mismatch, Keysight waveguide sensors offer excellent SWR of 1.06 (>30 dB return loss).
50 MHz Calibration
For easy calibration with the power meter, Keysight waveguide power sensors incorporate a 50 MHz calibration port. This eliminates the variance in making measurements with different meter/sensor combinations and the uncertainties due to temperature changes. It also provides traceability to the U.S National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) at millimeter-wave frequencies.
Keysight waveguide sensors use the same proven Modified Barrier Integrated Diode (MBID) technology found in other Keysight sensors, and always operates in the square-law characteristic for true-average detection.
Compatible with Your Current Keysight Power Meter
Keysight waveguide power sensors are fully compatible with Keysight EPM (E4418B/19B, N1913A/14A), EPM-P (E4416A/17A) and P-Series (N1911A/12A) power meters. The V8486A and W8486A are also compatible with the discontinued or obsolete power meters such as 435B, 436A, 437B, 438A, 70100A, E1416A, E4418A, and E4419A power meters.
