HAMEG Instruments has increased the frequency range for all spectrum analyzers in its 1000 series from 1 GHz to 1.6 GHz. With the purchase of a HMS1000, HMS1010, or HMS1000E, HAMEG customers will experience an immediate increase of 60% more frequency range at no additional cost.
The latest firmware version (HAMEG_FW_HMS_2.022) is available at HAMEC.com for download. Install it and restart the instrument with the new performance.
This added value applies not only to new instruments, but to all products delivered since July 01, 2012. Equipment has been tested at the factory to ensure compliance with the new specifications, and can be upgraded accordingly.
The free upgrade to 1.6 GHz is also available for all HMS1000 products purchased prior to July 01, 2012. This is subject to the restriction that these instruments could not be tested at the factory to guarantee compliance with the expanded frequency range.
For a special price of just over US$200 (plus tax), HAMEG will perform a firmware upgrade to test and synchronize an instrument. This will guarantee correct measurement results, including the expanded frequency range.
