Manual Step Attenuator

See Manual Step Attenuator Products

An attenuator is an electronic device that reduces the power of a signal without appreciably distorting its waveform. An attenuator is effectively the opposite of an amplifier, though the two work by different methods. While an amplifier provides gain, an attenuator provides loss, or gain less than 1.

The Model 9000 series Step Attenuators are broadband miniature step attenuators that provide excellent performance characteristics suitable for use in high reliability 50 ohm systems and applications requiring extra-small components for the precision control of signal levels. The Model 9000 series can be used either as input or output attenuators in signal sources, receivers, field strength meters, spectrum analyzers, etc. The SMA connector furnished on all models are available in either standard or right-angle configuration. The sex of front and rear connector is optional. A knob(s), marked appropriately, is supplied with each unit.

Keysight Technologies Inc.

Keysight attenuators find use in a wide variety of applications for signal conditioning and level control, such as: Reducing signal levels, matching impedances of sources and loads, and measuring the gain or loss of a two-port device. They offer the best reliability and repeatability in the industry.
