VNA Calibration Kits produce results to IEEE 287 standards.
Press Release Summary:
December 24, 2012 - Vector network analyzer (VNA) calibration kits provide RF components needed to enable stable and accurate error corrected measurements of DUTs using VNA from DC to 26.5 GHz. Offering VNA coverage for diverse models, calibration accounts for 3 major sources of systematic error correction by one-port calibration at both ports. Both 3.5 mm/SMA VNA and Type N VNA calibration kits are designed for equipment that utilizes open-short-load (OSL) calibration method.

Pasternack Introduces New VNA Cal Kits
Press release date: December 19, 2012
Pasternack Enterprises, Inc., a leading ISO 9001:2008 certified manufacturer and global supplier of RF and microwave products, introduces their new lines of vector network analyzer calibration kits.
The new vector network analyzer (VNA) calibration kits from Pasternack provide the RF components needed to enable stable and accurate error corrected measurements of devices under test (DUT) using a VNA from DC to 26.5 GHz in one convenient kit. Calibration of a DUT using Pasternack’s kit allows for precise measurements needed to meet IEEE 287 standards. Pasternack’s VNA calibration kits offer broad VNA coverage for the most popular models including Agilent®, Anritsu®, Rohde & Schwarz® and other VNAs. The Pasternack VNA calibration kits yield the most complete calibration, as it accounts for the three major sources of systematic error correction by one-port calibration at both ports.
VNA calibration kits from Pasternack contain both male/plug and female/jack connector interfaces to perform full two port error corrections. Pasternack’s 3.5mm / SMA VNA and Type N VNA calibration kits are designed for equipment that utilizes the open-short-load (OSL) calibration method. The network analyzer calibration kit from Pasternack is packaged in a durable, protective wood box and includes a preset torque wrench for Type N or 3.5mm and SMA connectors. Complimentary in-series phase matched adapters, armored test cable kits and 3-port field calibration (OSL) devices are available individually.
“Our vector network analyzer calibration kits are important for customers who require extremely accurate data and integrity from their VNAs,” says Gerry Camacho, VP of Technical Services at Pasternack Enterprises, Inc. “Our new VNA cal kits come equipped with all of the instruments and tools necessary to accurately calibrate and adjust some of the most important equipment in a test lab.”
