Fluke 96270A 27 GHz Low Phase Noise Reference Source
Model No :
Fluke 96270A
Part Code :
4.48961e+006

Overview

The Fluke Calibration 27 GHz 96270A RF Reference Source is the simplest, most accurate and cost effective single instrument for calibrating spectrum analyzers and RF power sensors and more. Its precision signal level and attenuation, high signal purity and precision low distortion modulation make this reference source clearly superior to the general-purpose signal generators that are often used to calibrate spectrum analyzers, RF power sensors, attenuators, and similar instruments.

Features
- Lets you avoid calculating correction factors for each component in the signal delivery system
- Accurate signal delivery direct to the UUT input up to 27 GHz
- Covers a broad range of RF calibration workload
- Reduces the number of instruments and interconnections required for your RF calibration system
- Integrated 300 MHz frequency counter and dual power meter readout eliminate need for additional instruments
- Calibration-specific interface simplifies technician tasks
- Simplifies uncertainty calculations
- Lowers RF system maintenance costs
- With automation, reduces spectrum analyzer calibration times by as much as 50 % over manual methods

Major Applications
- RF calibration of devices, like Spectrum analyzers, including higher frequency models
- RF power sensors
- Modulation meters and analyzers
- Measurement receivers
- Frequency counters
- RF attenuators and components
- High frequency oscilloscopes
