The Agilent/HP 8591E is an easy to use RF spectrum analyzer that offers a wide range of performance, features, and optional capability to meet your measurement needs.
The 8591E's downloadable measurement personalities is combined with optional plug in performance to provide tailored solutions for your application.
The Agilent has designed 8591E Spectrum Analyzer that can be configured to specific measurement needs. With the internal cardcage, circuit-card options can be inserted into any of four internal card slots to increase measurement capabilities.
For each application, Agilent offers a unique software program (provided on ROM-based memory cards), designed specifically for the 8591E. Downloaded into analyzer memory, each measurement personality provides measurement setups, routines, and results specific to application, as well as a user interface with terminology directly related to that application.
The 8591E's zoom window split screen display allows zooming in on signals while viewing the broad spectrum. Limit lines speed signal comparisons to user defined frequency and amplitude limits complete with pass/fail messages.
Fast-Fourier-Transform (FFT) allows quick analysis of the AM components on the signal of interest. Time-gated spectrum analysis obtains spectral details of burst-modulated signals. Quickly list the top 10 signal sorted by frequency or amplitude.
Remote programs and Downloadable programs are the two types of programs that can be used to control the 8591E spectrum analyzer.
Remote programs can be developed for controlling your spectrum analyzer from your computer when connected to either the GPIB or RS-232 interface of the 8591E analyzer.
Downloadable programs (DLPs) can be developed to locally control the 8591E spectrum analyzer. These programs, downloaded into your analyzer's internal memory, provide customized measurement routines assigned to analyzer softkeys.
The Agilent 8591E is an easy-to-use tool provides a broad range of testing capability across a wide variety of applications. Relationships between power, frequency, and time can be displayed with over 200 built-in measurement functions.
