Manual 8494A Datasheet
The Keysight 8494A, dc to 4 GHz manual step attenuator, offers exceptional repeatability and reliability. Attenuation is provided in 1 dB steps from 0 to 11 dB. Precision gold-plated leaf springs ensure long-life (over 5 million cycles) and very high attenuator repeatability (typically 0.01 dB). Custom step attenuator/switch combinations are possible. The 11716A/B/C interconnect kits provide quick connection of 8494/5/6/7 1 dB and 10 dB step attenuators in series for greater dynamic range with 1 dB steps.

Option 001: Type N female connectors
To improve measurement accuracy, NIST traceable data (SWR and attenuation) is available as Option 890.
