   The Agilent/HP 3586A Selective Level Meter meets North American (Bell) requirements and is fully programmable over the HP-IB. The unit provides a unique combination of features, including wideband power. Its wide frequency coverage allows measurements to be made at both voice channel and carrier frequencies. Microprocessor control adds many ease-of-use features such as amplitude offset measurements of tome and noise level in units of dBmO, dBrnCO, or dBpWO. Convenience features include simultaneous analog and digital level displays, precise frequency setting with HP's fractional N synthesized local oscillator, accurate frequency counter and tone measurements with automatic channel alignment for 18Hz test tone or carrier frequency reference. Manufacturer's Options Option 001 = 75 Ohm Connector mates with WECO 358A and 124 ohm Connector mates with WECO 372A

Features

  • Simultaneous analog and digital level displays
  • Precise frequency setting with HP's fractional N synthesized local oscillator
  • Accurate frequency counter and tone measurements with automatic channel alignment for 18Hz test tone or carrier frequency reference.

Carrier Frequency and Voice Channel

   The Agilent/HP 3586A & B can make both carrier frequency measurements to 32.5 MHz and voice channel measurements from 50 Hz to 100 kHz. You can measure tone levels, idle channel noise or weighted noise at voice channel, then compare at carrier frequency.

Transmission Impairments

   The Transmission Impairments capability permits phase jitter, weighted noise, noise-with-tone, signal-to-noise-with-tone ratio, and single level impulse noise measurements. The HP 3586A's capability to make these transmission impairment measurements at both FDM voice channel and carrier frequencies is unique.

Frequency and Amplitude Precision

   The Agilent/HP 3336 A/B provides frequency resolution of one microhertz (.000001 Hz) up to 100 kHz and one millihertz (.001 Hz) to 20.9 MHz. Level accuracy is ±.15 dB at full output over the full frequency range with ±.12 dB optional. Harmonic levels are more than 60 dB down up to 1 MHz and more than 50 dB down up to 20.9 MHz, performance not previously available in a synthesizer.

FDM Testing

   The flexible output section allows different connectors to be provided either by option or special request. Frequency entry is accomplished by keyboard or analog control for manual tuning or frequency stepping of any digit. The Amplitude Blanking feature allows testing of operational FDM systems without disturbing adjacent channels while the frequency is changed. The output is blanked to less than ¿85 dBm until the next desired frequency is reached.

General Purpose Features

The Agilent/HP 3336 A/B Synthesizer provides wide band sweep capability¿sweep the full frequency range (or as little as two microhertz), log or linear, single or continuous. Single phase lock loop design means the sweep is phase continuous and you can modulate with AM to 50 kHz or PM to 5 kHz. Ten storage registers can be used to keep different test settings available for repetitive test. All necessary func- tions on the HP 3336 A/B can be remotely programmed by HP-IB control for automatic testing.
