AGILENT/HP N9020A Datasheet - Test Equipment Solutions UK

Test Equipment Solutions Datasheet
Test Equipment Solutions Ltd specialise in the second user sale, rental and distribution of
quality test & measurement (T&M) equipment. We stock all major equipment types such as
spectrum analyzers, signal generators, oscilloscopes, power meters, logic analysers etc from
all the major suppliers such as Agilent, Tektronix, Anritsu and Rohde & Schwarz.
We are focused at the professional end of the marketplace, primarily working with customers
for whom high performance, quality and service are key, whilst realising the cost savings that
second user equipment offers. As such, we fully test & refurbish equipment in our in-house,
traceable Lab. Items are supplied with manuals, accessories and typically a full no-quibble 2
year warranty. Our staff have extensive backgrounds in T&M, totalling over 150 years of
combined experience, which enables us to deliver industry-leading service and support. We
endeavour to be customer focused in every way right down to the detail, such as offering free
delivery on sales, covering the cost of warranty returns BOTH ways (plus supplying a loan
unit, if available) and supplying a free business tool with every order.
As well as the headline benefit of cost saving, second user offers shorter lead times, higher
reliability and multivendor solutions. Rental, of course, is ideal for shorter term needs and
offers fast delivery, flexibility, try-before-you-buy, zero capital expenditure, lower risk and off
balance sheet accounting. Both second user and rental improve the key business measure of
Return On Capital Employed.
We are based near Heathrow Airport in the UK from where we supply test equipment
worldwide. Our facility incorporates Sales, Support, Admin, Logistics and our own in-house
Lab.
All products supplied by Test Equipment Solutions include:
- No-quibble parts & labour warranty (we provide transport for UK mainland addresses).
- Free loan equipment during warranty repair, if available.
- Full electrical, mechanical and safety refurbishment in our in-house Lab.
- Certificate of Conformance (calibration available on request).
- Manuals and accessories required for normal operation.
- Free insured delivery to your UK mainland address (sales).
- Support from our team of seasoned Test & Measurement engineers.
- ISO9001 quality assurance.

Accelerate to market
Every device demands decisions
that require tradeoffs in your
goals—customer specs, throughput, yield. With a highly flexible
signal analyzer, you can manage
and minimize those tradeoffs.
Agilent’s mid-performance MXA
is the ultimate accelerator as your
products move from design to the
marketplace. It has the flexibility
to quickly adapt to your evolving
test requirements—today and
tomorrow. Maximize your flexibility, and accelerate to market, with
the Agilent MXA signal analyzer.
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 1, 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
values are not warranted. These values are updated occasionally if a significant
change in the statistically observed behavior of production instruments is
observed.
Typical describes additional product performance information that is not covered
by the product warranty. It is performance beyond specifications that 80 percent
of the units exhibit with a 95 percent confidence level over the temperature
range 20 to 30 °C. Typical performance does not include measurement uncertainty.
Nominal values indicate expected performance, or describe product performance
that is useful in the application of the product, but are not covered by the product warranty.
The analyzer will meet its specifications when:
• It is within its calibration cycle
• Under auto couple control, except when Auto Sweep Time Rules = Accy
• Signal frequencies < 10 MHz, with DC coupling applied
• The analyzer has been stored at an ambient temperature within the allowed
operating range for at least two hours before being turned on; if it had previously been stored at a temperature range inside the allowed storage range,
but outside the allowed operating range
• The analyzer has been turned on at least 30 minutes with Auto Align set to
normal, or, if Auto Align is set to off or partial, alignments must have been run
recently enough to prevent an Alert message; if the Alert condition is changed
from Time and Temperature to one of the disabled duration choices, the
analyzer may fail to meet specifications without informing the user
1. For earlier instruments (Serial number prefix < MY/SG/US5051), the full temperature ranges from
5 to 50 °C.

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.
2. Apply for instruments with S/N prefix ≥ MY/SG/US5051. For older instruments, refer to the MXA Specification Guide.
