Product review of Agilent 8714ET network analyzer is now available from Test Equipment Connection. On September 27, 2013, the product review was completed.
The Agilent 8714ET features a built-in transmission/reflection test set with a full range of magnitude and phase measurements. Two independent channels can measure and display two device parameters, such as transmission and reflection response, in a variety of formats including complex impedance, SWR, and delay, on rectangular, polar or Smith-chart displays. These analyzers also employ advanced vector-error-correction techniques to enhance measurement accuracy.
For a wider range of output power levels to test active devices and components, Option 1E1 adds a 60-dB step attenuator as a standard feature, which extends the lowest power-level setting to -60 dBm. Both 50-ohm and 75-ohm versions are available. The three-channel, dual mode receivers provide dynamic range of greater than 100 dB in narrowband-detection measurement mode. For measurements of frequency-translating devices, the network analyzer features broadband internal detectors and external detector inputs. The receivers incorporate digital signal processing and microprocessor control to speed operation and measurement throughput. Two independent measurement channels and a large display show the measured results of one or two receiver channels in several user-selectable formats. An external VGA monitor can be connected to the rear panel for enhanced measurement viewing in color. Measurement functions are selected with front panel hardkey and softkey menus. Measurements can be printed or plotted directly with a compatible peripheral. Instrument states can be saved to the internal floppy disk, internal non-volatile memory, or internal volatile memory.
