Keysight / Agilent 8494B RF Step Attenuator

  • Driven From a 50 Ohm Signal Source at 1 kHz
  • Range of 0 dB to 11 dB in 1 dB Steps
  • Edge Line Contacts are Gold-Plated Leaf Springs


The Agilent 8494B is a 50-ohm coaxial step attenuator. The attenuation can be varied in 1 dB steps. The attenuation shown on the control knob is the additional attenuation added in the signal path over the insertion loss of the attenuator in the 0 dB position. Agilent 8494B instruments are four-section attenuators with a range of 0 dB to 11 dB in 1 dB steps. The attenuator sections are connected in cascade. Each section consists of a precision, thin-film attenuator card, a lossless thru-line and a ganged pair of edge line transmission lines. The edge lines are flexed to make contact with either the attenuator card or the thru-line. The edge line contacts are gold-plated leaf springs which ensure long life and high repeatability. Low-torque cams flex the edge lines.

Product Family: 8494B, 8494-B, 8494 B

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!
