Keysight / Agilent 8508A Vector Voltmeter

  • Measures Voltage, Power, Gain or Loss, Impedance and Phase Matching
  • Built-in Procedures for Simple Network Analysis
  • Measurements Made From Input or Output or With Probe
  • Frequency Range of 100 kHz - 1 GHz or 300 kHz to 2 GHz


The Agilent / HP 8508A Vector Voltmeter is a dual-channel, autoranging receiver which measures the voltages of two CW signals and the phase difference between them. The measurements are either of a single channel or the ratio between the two channels, and the results displayed as voltage or power (in linear or log units), normalized magnitude and phase angle, or real and imaginary components. In addition the HP 8508A has built-in procedures for simple network analysis. The HP 8508A has two configurations - the first providing two high impedance probe inputs with a frequency range from 100 kHz to 1 GHz, and the second providing two 50 Ω type-N connector inputs with a frequency range of 300 kHz to 2 GHz. The configuration can be changed by replacing the instrument's input module.

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!
