Description

The Keysight 85099B RF electronic calibration (ECal) module makes calibration of vector network analyzers fast, easy and accurate. The new RF ECal system is now easily controlled by one of two methods depending on the network analyzer. The Keysight PNA Series of network analyzers controls the module directly via the USB interface. The modules can also be controlled via a PC running Windows® 95 or NT® 4.0 when used in with a Keysight 8753, 8720 or 8510 system.

ECal is an ideal solution for calibrating network analyzers. Performing a full 2-port calibration takes less than half the time and number of connections using ECal versus mechanical cal kits. Furthermore, the accuracy of the calibration is comparable between electronic & mechanical methods. Traditional mechanical calibrations require intensive operator interaction which is prone to errors. With ECal, the operator simply connects the ECal module to the network analyzer and the software controls the rest.
