Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) announced the addition of two new models to its U8480 Series USB thermocouple power sensors. The U8480 Series now comes with improved specifications, including an expanded frequency range to 67 GHz and a measurement speed of 900 readings/second, maintaining the U8480 Series’ status as the world’s fastest USB thermocouple power sensors. Features include:

  • Real-time measurement uncertainty significantly reduces overall test time by removing the need for time-consuming manual measurement uncertainty (MU) calculations.
  • Accuracy and repeatability with thermocouple sensing technology and a power linearity of less than 0.8 percent.
  • S-parameter and gamma correction functions further improve measurement accuracy by correcting the mismatch errors caused by inserted components between the device-under-test and the power sensor, making the U8480 Series suitable for applications such as test system or instrument calibration.
