January 29, 2014 - Designed with WR-12 flange connector, E8486A Waveguide Power Sensor makes precise power measurements in E-band spectrum of 60–90 GHz. Unit comes with 80 dB dynamic range option, allowing sensor to measure from -60 to +20 dBm instead of standard -30 to +20 dBm range. To facilitate calibration, sensor incorporates 50 MHz calibration port, eliminating uncertainties due to temperature changes and variance in making measurements with different meter and sensor combinations.

Agilent Technologies Introduces Waveguide Power Sensor for Precise, Accurate E-band Power Measurements


SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the E8486A waveguide power sensor. Designed with a WR-12 flange connector, the E8486A makes precise and accurate power measurements in the E-band spectrum of 60 to 90 GHz, making the sensor the ideal solution to meet the rapid demand in E-band telecommunication applications.

The E8486A comes with an 80 dB dynamic range option, allowing the sensor to measure from -60 dBm to +20 dBm instead of the standard -30 dBm to +20 dBm range. With the expanded dynamic range, the E8486 continues to be highly accurate even when measuring low-level signals, making it possible to measure power at the receiver side of point-to-point transceiver modules in addition to the module's output power.

Like all Agilent waveguide power sensors, the E8486A offers high reliability and low loss. For easy calibration, the E8486A incorporates a 50 MHz calibration port to eliminate the uncertainties due to temperature changes and the variance in making measurements with different meter and sensor combinations. The E8486A also offers excellent SWR of 1.06, minimizing any measurement uncertainty caused by sensor and source mismatch for greater accuracy.

"Waveguide power sensors are renowned for their accuracy and low mismatch loss," said Ee Huei Sin, vice president, Agilent's General-Purpose Electronic Measurement Division. "With the E8486A, Agilent now offers a full range of waveguide power sensors to fulfill the wireless backhaul and automotive radar industries."

U.S. Pricing and Additional Information
The Agilent E8486A waveguide power sensor is now available worldwide. E8486A Option 100 (60 to 90 GHz, -30 to +20 dBm) is priced at $11,238. E8486A Option 200 (60 to 90 GHz, -60 to +20 dBm) is priced at $13,308.

Information on the E8486A is available at www.agilent.com/find/waveguidesensor_pr.
