Testport adapters

Question asked by bar28 on Sep 19, 2008
Our lab has 7mm 85050B calkit and testport cables what we using with 8510C VNA are 85132F (3.5mm to 7mm). Should we use straight 7mm to 7mm testport adapters with those cables or can we do measurement calibration directly on the testport 7mm cable endings?

I'm pretty sure that using good quality 7mm to 7mm testport adapters on those cables, we could improve connector repeatability and increase the lifetime of those testport cable's connector heads. Should the 7mm adapters be slotless or with 6-slot collect version? Comments?
