Keysight/Agilent/HP 8590B and 8592B offer basic RF and microwave measurement performance at a low cost. The HP 8590B has a frequency range of 9 kHz to 1.8 GHz, a 50- or optional 75-ohm input, and a weight of only 13.6 kg (30 pounds). Amplitude range is a wide -115 to +30 dBm. The HP 8592B has a frequency range of 9 kHz to 22 GHz (or 25 GHz with option H25), an internal preselector, and a weight of (35 pounds) 15.9 kg. Amplitude range extends from -114 to +30 dBm. (For special applications or general export, the HP 8592B option 1BH does not tune above 18 GHz nor span greater than 2.3 GHz.) If ac power is not available, both spectrum analyzers can be operated using the HP 85901A portable ac power source.
- Both portable spectrum analyzers have built-in, automatic calibration to ensure measurement consistency
- The internal memory allows 50 traces to be stored, and 24 more can be stored on a RAM card with addition of the optional memory-card reader
- Time-and-date stamping come standard
- Direct output to printer or plotter are available with either the HP-IB or RS-232 interface option
