Hameg Instruments increased the frequency range for all spectrum analyzers in the 1000 series from 1GHz to 1.6GHz. With the purchase of a HMS1000, HMS1010 or HMS1000E, HA Hameg customers will experience an immediate increase of 60% more frequency range at no extra cost.
This added value applies not only to new instruments; all products delivered after July 01, 2012 have been tested at the factory to ensure compliance with the new specifications and can be upgraded accordingly.
The free upgrade to 1.6GHz is also available for all HMS1000 products purchased prior to July 01, 2012, subject to certain restrictions. However, to ensure compliance with all specifications over 1GHz, HAMEG recommends returning the spectrum analyzer to the Hameg Service Center.
For 160 EUR (plus tax), Hameg will do a firmware upgrade to test and synchronize the instrument. This will guarantee correct measurement results, including the expanded frequency range.
