- Effective immediately at no additional cost, the HAMEG 1 GHz Spectrum Analyzers HMS1000/1010 are also available with a RBW (Resolution Bandwidth) of 100Hz, improving the DANL (Displayed Average Noise Level) as a result. The specifications of the 1GHz and the 3GHz instruments now only differ by the input frequency range. Owners of older instruments don’t miss out either; they can upgrade their instruments to the new firmware version so they will equal new instruments as far as the parameters are concerned.
- A new Reference for the entry into Spectrum Analysis … Owing to their slogan ‘Great Value in Test & Measurement’ HAMEG present the new HMS1000E which is available from stock (Item Number 22-1000-E000). It is the proper successor to the HM5510. It is an economy version based on the modern platform of the HMS series, with considerably more functions (RBW, VBW, markers…) than its predecessor.
[The MSO for the broader market ...]
The highly successful HMO series have been extended. While, up until now, only instruments from 250…350MHz were offered at prices above € 3,000, HAMEG have also addressed the range from 70…200MHz.
Eight new oscilloscopes were presented in March 2011. The 4 channel, 70 and 100MHz instruments are now available, with the other models to follow in July. In terms of the operation and the front panel interface, the new instruments hardly differ from the existing HMO series products. A Component Tester was added which is highly appreciated in this class. Using the known option HO3508 allows for eight digital channels to be analyzed. The I2C, SPI and UART/RS-232 trigger and decode option HOO11 (licence key) is new; in the first year of introduction, it will be delivered with the instruments free of charge.
Hence even with the 2 channel instrument, an I2C, SSPI and UART/RS-232 signal can be analyzed without any additional accessories.
For the 3-wire SPI bus the 2 channel instrument requires just one additional probe for the external trigger input.
The new HMO’s are only 140 mm deep and may be stacked – as to be expected – on every other HAMEG instrument.
