Keysight Multiport Customer Support Home Page

 

This web page is intended to allow customer access to service related information for Multiport test sets for the PNA that support full calibration for all ports (via option 550 or 551). The test sets listed below allow the PNA models to become "n" port network analyzers with user calibration available on all "n" ports.

Agilent also offers other test sets that function only as switch matrixes and do not support calibration of the test set ports in an integrated manner. These test sets are not listed below.

This web page will expand over time as service information for various multiport test sets becomes available.

U3042AE12

Frequency range: 10 MHz to 26.5 GHz

The Agilent U3042AE12 is a 12-Port mechanical switching extension test set with a range of 10 MHz to 26.5 GHz. The 4-Port extension test set can be connected to a 4-Port N5222A PNA, N5230A/C and N5232A PNA-L, or N5242A PNA-X Network Analyzer. This expands the 4-Port network analyzer to a 16 test port analyzer with full cross bar measurement capability. Option 551 in the Network Analyzer provides N port calibration capabilities.

User's Guide - updated January 2013.

Test Set Files

Option 550 or 551 on the PNA require an appropriate test set file.

Option 550 is not supported on the N5242A PNA-X.

Functional test certs for N4419B/20B/21B

The announcement of the discontinuance of calibration certificates for the N44xx models is in the letter from Steve Scheppelmann dated June 29, 2006.

Agilent will no longer issue calibration certificates, only functional test certificates. This is due to the absense of any testable hard specifications on the N44xx.

The recommended method for issuing a functional test certificate for the N44xx is to perform the operational check as defined in the service guide. The operational check may be performed by the customer or by Agilent. Alternately, the test set may be returned to the Santa Rosa factory where the production tests will be performed. Still, only a functional test certificate will be issued, NOT a calibration certificate.

The documented operational check process does not generate any data that may be sent directly to the customer. A service center may compose a custom test report consisting of screen captures and test limits, if needed.

E5091A Test Sets

Some options of the E5091A test sets have limited support on the E836x and N5230 PNA models. These test sets are functionally similar to many of the 87050A test sets, they do not have couplers and do not support calibration on more than two ports at once.
