E4418B/9B EPM Series power meter performance characteristics
Specifications describe the instrument’s
warranted performance and apply after
a 30-minute warm-up. These
specifications are valid over its
operating/environmental range
unless otherwise stated and after
performing a zero and calibration
procedure.
Supplemental characteristics (shown
in italics) are intended to provide
additional information, useful in
applying the instrument by giving
typical (expected), but not warranted
performance parameters. These
characteristics are shown in italics
or labeled as “typical”, “nominal” or
“approximate”.
For information on measurement
uncertainty calculations, refer to
Application Note 64-1C, “Fundamentals
of RF and Microwave Power
Measurements”, literature number
5965-6380E.
Compatible power sensors: E4410 and
E9300 E-Series, 8480 Series and N8480
Series average power sensors
Frequency range: 9 kHz to 110 GHz,
sensor dependent
Power range: –70 dBm to +44 dBm
(100 pW to 25 W), sensor dependent
Single sensor dynamic range:
90 dB maximum (E-Series sensors)
50 dB maximum (8480 Series sensors)
55 dB maximum (N8480 Series sensors)
Display units:
Absolute: Watts or dBm

Display resolution: Selectable
resolution of 1.0, 0.1, 0.01, and 0.001dB
in Log mode, or 1 to 4 digits in linear
mode
Default resolution: 0.01 dB in log
mode, 3 digits in linear mode
Measurement noise calculation:
(<45 pW x 2.75) = <121 pW
*For specifications pertaining to the N8480 Series
power sensors, please refer to the “Agilent N8480
Series Power Sensors Data Sheet”, literature
number 5989-9333EN.
Accuracy
Power reference
Absolute: ±0.02 dB (log) or ±0.5%
(linear). Please add the corresponding
power sensor linearity percentage
from Table 6 and Table 9 (for E-Series
sensors) and Table 14 (for 8480 Series
sensors).
Power output: 1.00 mW (0.0 dBm).
Factory set to ±0.4% traceable to the
National Physical Laboratory (NPL),
1
UK .
Relative: ±0.04 dB (Log) or ±1.0%
(linear). Please add the corresponding
power sensor linearity percentage
from Table 14 (for 8480 Series sensors).
Zero set (digital settability of zero):
Sensor dependent (refer to Table 1). For
E-Series sensors, this specification
applies to a zero performed when the
sensor input is not connected to the
POWER REF.
Zero drift of sensors: Sensor dependent,
refer to Table 1. For E9300 sensors, refer
to Table 11 for complete data.
Measurement noise: Sensor dependent,
refer to Table 1 and Table 2. For E9300
sensors, refer to Table 11 for complete
data.
Effects of averaging on noise: Averaging
over 1 to 1024 readings is available for
reducing noise. Table 1 provides the
measurement noise for a particular
sensor with the number of averages set
at 16 (for normal mode) and 32 (for x2
mode). Use the noise multiplier, for the
appropriate mode (normal or x2) and
number of averages, to determine the
total measurement noise value.
Example:
8481D power sensor, normal mode,
number of averages = 4

/second.
Fast mode is for E-series sensors only.
Maximum measurement speed is
obtained using binary output and in free
run trigger mode.

measurements relative to the last
displayed value.
Offset: Allows power measurements
to be offset by –100 dB to +100 dB,
settable in 0.001-dB increments, to
compensate for external loss or gain.
Duty cycle: Duty cycle values between
0.001% to 99.999%, in increments of

Calibration factor (CF) and reflection coefficient (Rho)
Calibration factor and reflection
coefficient data are provided at 1 GHz
increments on a data sheet included
with the power sensor. This data is
unique to each sensor. If you have more
than one sensor,match the serial number
on the Certificate of Calibration (COC)
with the serial number on the power
sensor you are using. The CF corrects
for the frequency response of the sensor.
The EPM power meter automatically
reads the CF data stored in the sensor
and uses it to make the corrections.
For power levels greater than 0 dBm,
add 0.5%/dB to the calibration factor
uncertainty specification.

The chart in Figure 1 shows the typical
uncertainty in making a relative power
measurement, using the same power
meter channel and the same power
sensor to obtain the reference and the
measured values. Example A illustrates
a relative gain (amplifier measurement).
Example B illustrates a relative loss
(insertion loss measurement). This chart
assumes negligible change in frequency
and mismatch occur when transitioning
from the power level used as the
reference to the power level being
measured.
Example A:

Figure 2 shows the typical uncertainty
in making a relative power measurement,
using the same power meter channel
and same power sensor to obtain the
reference and the measured values, and
assumes that negligible change in
frequency and mismatch error occur
when transitioning from the power level
used as the reference to the power level
being measured.
E-Series average power sensor specifications (continued)
Switch point data
The E9300 power sensors have two paths
as shown in Table 7. The power meter
automatically selects the proper power
level path. To avoid unnecessary
switching when the power level is near
the switch point, switching point
hysteresis has been added.
Example with E9300 “A” suffix
sensors:
Hysteresis causes the low power path
to remain selected until approximately
–9.5 dBm as the power level is increased.
Above this power, the high power path
will be selected. The high power path
will remain selected until approximately
–10.5 dBm is reached as the signal level
decreases. Below this power, the low
power path will be selected.
Switching point linearity: Typically
±0.5% ( ±0.02 dB)

Calibration factor (CF) and
reflection coefficient (Rho)
Calibration factor and reflection
coefficient data are provided at
frequency intervals on a data sheet
included with the power sensor. This
data is unique to each sensor. If you
have more than one sensor, match
the serial number on the Certificate
of Calibration (COC) with the serial
number on the power sensor you are

response of the sensor. The EPM series
power meter automatically reads the CF
data stored in the sensor and uses it to
make the corrections.
Reflection coefficient (Rho) relates
to the SWR according to the following
formula:
SWR = (1 + Rho)/(1 - Rho)
Maximum uncertainties of the CF data
are listed in tables 12a and 12b, for each
individual measurement path (high power
and low power, as shown in Table 7). The
uncertainty analysis for the calibration
of the sensors was done in accordance
with the ISO Guide. The uncertainty data
