Description :

CalPods provide a new and unique way to quickly and easily refresh a network analyser calibration, at the push of a button and without removing the DUT or re-connecting standards.

CalPods operate with the following PNA family of network analysers: PNA-X N524xA, PNA N522xA, and PNA-L N5231/32/34/35/39A. Operation of the CalPods requires specific CalPod firmware for the PNA, an 85523B CalPod Controller, and to control more than four CalPods the 85556A fan-out cable splitter is required.

NA Firmware Option 301: Application for use with ambient temperature CalPods (required) PNA firmware option 301 is used for ambient temperature operation of CalPods and provides accurate re-correction capabilities over the temperature range of +20 °C to +30 °C. A maximum of only four CalPods can be controlled with option 301. The temperature characterized and thermal-vacuum environment CalPods can be used with firmware option 301, but they will not have temperature compensation capabilities.
