if not correctly performed or adhered to, could result in injury or
loss of life. Do not proceed beyond a warning note until the
indicated conditions are fully understood and met.

conditions are fully understood and met.
Definitions
• Specifications describe the performance of parameters covered by the product warranty
(temperature –0 to 55 °C, unless otherwise noted.)
• Typical describes additional product performance information that is not covered by the
product warranty. It is performance beyond specification that 80% of the units exhibit
with a 95% 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 is not covered by the product warranty.
• Characteristic Performance describes performance parameter that the product is
expected to meet before it leaves the factory, but is not verified in the field and is not
covered by the product warranty. A characteristic includes the same guard bands as a
specification.

Description
Description
The Agilent Z5623AK08 Distribution Network is designed for use with the E8257/67D
Options HCC. The test set provides the capability to phase lock two signals sources of the
same family.
The test set has two modes of operation, Coherent Mode and Independent Mode.
The test set is controlled thru a 9 pin connector on the rear panel via an external switch
controller, or by a switch on the front panel.
Verifying the Shipment
After the test set has been unpacked, keep the original packaging materials so they can be
used if you need to transport the instrument. Inspect the test set and all accessories for
any signs of damage that may have occurred during shipment. If your test set or any
accessories appear to be damaged or missing refer to “Contacting Agilent Sales and Service
Offices” on page 25.

Cabinet Requirements
1. If you are installing the test set into a cabinet, ensure there are at least two inches of
clearance around the sides and back of the test set and the system cabinet. See
Figure 2. The convection into and out of the test set must not be restricted. The ambient
temperature (outside the cabinet) must be less than the maximum operating
temperature of the test set by 4 °C for every 100 watts dissipated in the cabinet.

Z5623A Option K08
Introduction to Phase Coherency
Introduction to Phase Coherency
The phase coherent simulation system developed by Agilent provides a more repeatable,
configurable alternative that can be used in the laboratory or the flight line. It is
comprised solely of commercially available equipment and requires only the addition of
waveforms used to stimulate the receivers.
The E8267D Option HCC and the Z5623A Option K08 distribution network allows a
master to deliver a fundamental LO signal to the distribution network. The distribution
network distributes this signal back to the master and all of the slaves as a common
reference. The system provides the full-phase coherency that is mandatory for testing
multi-receiver systems, as well as full control over time, phase, amplitude and frequency.
NOTE
When changing the frequency of the master, the slave unit must have the
same frequency setting or the slave unit will be unlevel and no RF output
power will be detected.
NOTE
When the instrument is in independent mode there is no phase coherency
lock and all instruments will operate independently.
The user may perform a unit calibration as often as desired to
produce reliable measurements.

RF Connectors
All of the RF connectors are 50 Ω SMA female connectors.
Power Cables
The line power cable is supplied in one of several configurations, depending on the
destination of the original shipment.
Each instrument is equipped with a three-wire power cable. When connected to an
appropriate ac power receptacle, this cable grounds the instrument chassis. The type of
power cable shipped with each instrument depends on the country of destination. See
Figure 1 on page 5 for the part numbers of these power cables.
WARNING
This is a Safety Class I product (provided with a protective earthing
ground incorporated in the power cord). The mains plug shall only
be inserted in a socket outlet provided with a protective earth
contact. Any interruption of the protective conductor, inside or
outside the instrument, is likely to make the instrument dangerous.
Intentional interruption is prohibited.

Operation
Operation
The Agilent Z5623AK08 has two modes of operation, Independent and Coherent. The
operation of the Z5623AK08 is via an external controller or via switch on the front panel.
The external controller can read the status of the mode.
Control Mode
Pin 1 of the external control connector is normally +5 V. In this condition the manual
control mode is selected. When the control mode pin is grounded, external control is
selected.
Coherent Mode
This mode distributes the master sources LO outputs to the master and slave sources LO
inputs. The mode control line (pin 2) is high (5V). The status of the mode control line can be
read on pin 4, high equals coherent mode and low equals independent mode.
Independent Mode
This mode routes the LO outputs of each source to the LO inputs of the same source. This
mode is used to calibrate the individual sources. To select this, the mode control line (pin 2)
is grounded (0V).
External Control Connector
The external control connector is a 9 pin D-Sub connector.

General Safety Considerations
Safety Earth Ground
WARNING
This is a Safety Class I product (provided with a protective earthing
ground incorporated in the power cord). The mains plug shall only
be inserted in a socket outlet provided with a protective earth
contact. Any interruption of the protective conductor, inside or
outside of the instrument, will make the instrument dangerous.
Intentional interruption is prohibited.
Before Applying Power
Verify that the product is configured to match the available main power source. If this
product is to be powered by autotransformer, make sure the common terminal is connected
to the neutral (grounded) side of the ac power supply.
Cautions applicable to this instrument.
CAUTION
Always use the three-prong ac power cord supplied with this instrument.
Failure to ensure adequate earth grounding (by not using this cord) can cause
instrument damage.
CAUTION
This product is designed for use in Installation Category II and Pollution
Degree 2 per IEC 61010 Second Edition and 664 respectively.
CAUTION
This instrument has autoranging line voltage input; be sure the supply
voltage is within the specified range.
CAUTION
Ventilation Requirements: When installing the instrument in a cabinet, the
convection into and out of the instrument must not be restricted. The ambient
temperature (outside the cabinet) must be less than the maximum operating
temperature of the instrument by 4 °C for every 100 watts dissipated in the
cabinet. If the total power dissipated in the cabinet is greater than 800 watts,
forced convection must be used.

Electrostatic Discharge Protection
Electrostatic Discharge Protection
Protection against electrostatic discharge (ESD) is essential while removing assemblies
from or connecting cables to the network analyzer. Static electricity can build up on your
body and can easily damage sensitive internal circuit elements when discharged. Static
discharges too small to be felt can cause permanent damage. To prevent damage to the
instrument:
• always have a grounded, conductive table mat (9300-0797) in front of your test
equipment.
• always wear a grounded wrist strap (9300-1367) with grounding cord (9300-0980),
connected to a grounded conductive table mat, having a 1 MΩ resistor in series with it,
when handling components and assemblies or when making connections.
• always wear a heel strap (9300-1126) when working in an area with a conductive floor.
If you are uncertain about the conductivity of your floor, wear a heel strap.
• always ground yourself before you clean, inspect, or make a connection to a
static-sensitive device or test port. You can, for example, grasp the grounded outer shell
of the test port or cable connector briefly.
• always ground the center conductor of a test cable before making a connection to the
analyzer test port or other static-sensitive device. This can be done as follows:
1. Connect a short (from your calibration kit) to one end of the cable to short the center
conductor to the outer conductor.
2. While wearing a grounded wrist strap, grasp the outer shell of the cable connector.
3. Connect the other end of the cable to the test port and remove the short from the
cable.
