Agilent / HP / Keysight 8566B
8566B Spectrum Analyzer, 100 Hz to 22 GHz
The Agilent 8566B Spectrum Analyzer is designed for bench and system use.
The Agilent 8566B analyzer offers superior measurement speed, microwave frequency accuracy, and sensitivity. Measure low-level signals up to 22 with narrow resolution bandwidths. Synthesizer stability virtually eliminates long-term drift and residual FM.
The Agilent 8566B can be operated in 100 Hz to 22 GHz frequency range with a dc-coupled input. Preselected external mixers extend this coverage from 26.5 to 75 GHz and other external mixers allow measurement to 325 GHz.
Sixteen Kbytes of user RAM are available with the 8566B for storing trace data, instrument states, and custom downloadable programs. All displayed information can be sent directly to an HP-IB plotter when sweeptime is greater than or equal to 20 ms.
The amplitude measurement range extends from +30 to -135 with a 90 calibrated display.
The Option 002 makes the Agilent 8566B even faster, which nearly doubles the internal processing speed of the analyzer.
The Turbo option is compatible with all Agilent 8566B accessories, and it can be added to any Agilent 8566B without affecting specifications.
By adding measurement accessories and options, the Agilent 8566B spectrum analyzer fits into many applications, including electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing, broadband signal surveillance, and component stimulus response testing.
The Agilent 8566B allows entering simple measurement routines from the instrument front panel, storing in user RAM, and executing using a single custom softkey.
The Agilent 8566B spectrum analyzer forms the heart of two powerful and flexible EM1 receivers. These receivers are ideal for commercial and military EM1 compliance testing from 20 Hz to 40 GHz.
The sensitivity of the Agilent 8566B spectrum analyzer can be boosted with the Agilent 8449B microwave preamplifier. This low noise, high gain preamplifier has a frequency range of 1 to 26.5 GHz. Sensitivity improvements of up to 25 dB allow detecting and analyze very low level signals in dramatically reduced time, using wider bandwidths. Low return loss on the input and output ports of the preamplifier minimizes mismatch uncertainty.
The Agilent 8566B spectrum analyzer works with computers that support HP BASIC, including HP 9000 Series 200 and 300 computers and IBM PC/AT-compatible models.
The Agilent 7440 and 7550 plotters are recommended for use with the Agilent 8566B. Data can be sent directly from the analyzer to the plotter, without the need for a computer.
