This high precision 30 dB attenuator is used for calibration and testing of power meters high sensitivity power sensors.
HP/Agilent power meters have a 50 MHz precision source used to calibrate power sensors with output power of 1 mW (0 dBm) that is compatible with all power sensors excluding high sesitivity types that work at a maximum of 10 µW (-20 dBm).
Using the HP 11708A precision attenuator to attenuate the 1 mW source it is then possible to calibrate HP/Agilent high sensitivity power sensors like: 8484A, 8481D, 8485D, 8487D, R8486D e Q8486D.
These attenuators have been tested and they are fully working.
