Seller's Comments and Description:

HP / Agilent 8508A Vector Voltmeter

Installed plug in module is HP 85082A – 50 Ohm, 300 KHz to 2 GHz with “N” Connectors.

Sensitivity across the range is 10uV with auto ranging upwards.

There are other plugins that are available for this VM however the plugin currently installed is the hardest to locate and also the most expensive when and if you can locate it.

This voltmeter is in very good condition and will automatically lock onto signals within the range of the plug in.

Measurements as per the photos are on one port only however comparative measurement can be made simultaneously by measuring input and output of devices.

The instrument can also be used as a very sensitive RF volt meter to equipment alignment, fault finding etc.

In the photos I was measuring the loss across a suspect piece of RG58 cable and grotty connectors. In all cases the known output of the signal generator as 100mv and the instrument is measuring the loss through the cable and the coaxial switch. Unfortunately I did not do the two port measurement however the results would still be the same.

The user manual and data sheet will be supplied on either CD or USB memory stick in PDF format.

As per my other instrumentation listings, I am rationalising my instrumentation and reducing the duplication of measurement facilities to a level that I can work with without any overkill.

Pick up is available from Caulfield South or I will ship worldwide at buyers cost through Pack N Send.
