The Kirkby Microwave 85054 18 GHz Type-N coaxial calibration and verification kit.
The Kirkby Microwave 85054 is a coaxial calibration and verification kit for vector network analyzers. It can be used up to 18 GHz,
but due to the high cost of very high quality 18 GHz loads, we can supply this with lower-cost 6 GHz loads,
The kit is offered in 3 configurations.
6 GHz loads. The kit will only work properly to 6 GHz, but you can upgrade it at a later date to 18 GHz by replacing the loads. The opens and shorts are suitable for 18 GHz,
but not the loads. The accuracy of the loads, even at 6 GHz, is a little poorer than using 18 GHz loads.
18 GHz loads. These are very good loads, but due to their cost, we do not stock always stock these items new, although used ones are often available from us.
Wire transfer. We can send you a proforma invoice or quotation by request. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a formal quote if you wish to pay by wire transfer. We can quote in USD, GBP or Euros.

Buying the 85054 18 GHz kit from this web site with Paypal
This will save money over buying from eBay, but you still have the buyer protection of Paypal. Since we don't pay eBay fees, our price on the web site is lower. Prices are given in GBP. Please ask for a proforma invoice if you want to pay in another currency, and we will send you one. The kit is available with 6 or 18 GHz loads, but the 18 GHz ones are not often available.
Please contact us if you wish to purchase the kit with 18 GHz loads. Due to the very high cost of these new, we can sometimes supply the kit with used 18 GHz loads. We will give you a quotation if we can supply this configuration.
Male load (can be supplied without loads, with 6 GHz loads or with 18 GHz loads)
Female load (can be supplied without loads, with 6 GHz loads or with 18 GHz loads)
Female open (two part), which extends the male pin so phase is virtually independent of the exact shape of the male pin.
attenuator for verification purposes.
USB stick for measured data on the attenuator, helpful application notes.
Adapter male N to male N
Adapter female N to female N
3.5" floppy disk with coefficients for the 8753, 8720, 8510 or PNA series of VNAs from HP/Agilent. Please state what disk is required (if any).
Size (Length x width x height): 238 x 141 x 67 mm (9.37" x 5.56" x 2.62")
Weight 1.2 kg
Shipping weight 2 kg
Case is splashproof and dustproof (IP 67 rated) using a thermal plastic rubber liner O-Ring
Storage temperature: -20 to +70 deg C
Operating temperature: +19 to +27 deg C (66.2 to 80.6 deg F)
Error-corrected range temperature range: 1 deg C (Typically VNAs must be operated at a temperature of no more than 1 deg C from that used for calibration. Please check the data for your particular VNA)
Phase error of open standards is less than 3 degrees from DC to 18 GHz
Phase error of short standards is less than 2 degrees from DC to 18 GHz
(Note, the phase error is defined as the maximum difference in phase between the actual phase of the device, and the phase predicted by the
mathematical model of the device).
