HP 4396A and 4396B Repair Service and Software
S.I. repairs the venerable Hewlett Packard (now
Agilent, Keysight) 4396A and 4396B Network, impedance and spectrum analyzers.
HP (Agilent, Keysight) 4396A Key Points:
The 4396A when combined with a
test set, provides
reflection measurements, such as return loss, and SWR and S parameters.
As a vector network analyzer, the
Agilent, Keysight 4396A
operates from 100 kHz to 1.8 GHz with 1 mHz resolution and its
integrated synthesized source provides -60 to +20 dBm of output power
with 0.1 dB resolution.
As a spectrum analyzer, the
Agilent, Keysight 4396A operates from
2 Hz to 1.8 GHz with resolution bandwidth spanning 1 Hz to 3 MHz in a
The Agilent, Keysight 4396A features a
stepped Fast Fourier
Transform (FFT) digital signal processing technique for 20 to 100 times
faster narrow band spectrum measurement that swept-tuned spectrum
A full featured impedance
measurement function can be
added to the Agilent, Keysight 4396A by adding Option 010 and the Agilent, Keysight 43961A
RF impedance test kit covering from 100 kHz to 1.8 GHz, impedance
parameters and more are directly measured and displayed on the CRT.
The Agilent, Keysight 4396A with option
1D6, offers time gated
spectrum analysis capability to capture and measure repetitive burst
signals in video, disk drives and communication equipment.
The dynamic magnitude and phase
±0.05 dB and ±0.3 deg so that it can accurately measure
gain and group delay flatness.
These analyzers were notorious
for having display problems and failed power supplies. We stock
refurbished display modules, power supplies, and all major boards and
We also occasionally have
complete refurbished units
available for sale. they are a great value for their
capabilities. The 4396A versions we sell for approximately $5700
and the 4396B versions sell for approximately $12000 (depending on
options and cosmetic condition) with warranty. Please email
us for availability.
