Keep the test queue flowing In EMC testing, success depends on tools that can help you do more in less time—today and tomorrow. That’s why Agilent created the MXE: it’s a standards-compliant EMI receiver and diagnostic signal analyzer built on an upgradeable platform. In the lab and on the bench, it provides the accuracy, repeatability, and reliability you need to test with confidence. Equip your team with the MXE, and keep the test queue flowing.

Definitions and Conditions Specifications describe the performance of parameters covered by the product warranty and apply to the full temperature range of 0 to 55 °C, unless otherwise noted. 95th percentile values indicate the breadth of the population (approx. 2 σ) of performance tolerances expected to be met in 95 percent of the cases with a 95 percent confidence, for any ambient temperature in the range of 20 to 30 °C. In addition to the statistical observations of a sample of instruments, these values include the effects of the uncertainties of external calibration references. These...

Frequency response (continued) Option 508 or 526 (RF/μW) Preselector on, preamp off Preselector on, preamp on (0 dB attenuation) 1. DC coupling required to meet specifications below 50 MHz. With AC coupling, specifications apply at frequencies of 50 MHz and higher. Statistical observations at 10 MHz with AC coupling show that most instruments meet the DC-coupled specifications, however, a small percentage of instruments are expected to have errors exceeding 0.5 dB at 10 MHz at the temperature extreme. The effect at 20 to 50 MHz is negligible but not warranted. Input attenuation switching...
