8596E Agilent Spectrum Analyzer
The 8596E is a 12.8 GHz Spectrum Analyzer from Agilent. A spectrum analyzer measures the power of spectrums of known and unknown signals. Spectrum analyzers collect information such as the magnitude of an input signal compared to its frequency. As a frequency analyzer, spectrum analyzers’ main use is to document and analyze electrical input signals as well as spectral compositions of other signals.

One Spectrum Analyzer for Many Applications
You can change the test capabilities of these spectrum analyzers to fit specific measurement needs. A memory card reader enables you to load application measurement personalities. Complex measurement routines are reduced to a keystroke. An option cardcage, unique to the HP 8590E Series, allows you to add circuit-card options for additional capability. Optional built-in tracking generators provide a synchronously swept signal source for stimulus-response measurements. Operating any HP 8590 Series spectrum analyzer requires only minimal training.
Numerous features make it easier to control measurements and to analyze the results. These spectrum analyzers have built-in, automatic calibration to ensure measurement consistency. Frequency panning lets you quickly reposition signals without repeated sweeps. The internal memory allows over 50 traces to be stored, and more can be stored on RAM cards using the memory-card reader.
Time and date stamping come standard. Direct output to printer or plotter is available with either the HP-IB or the RS-232 interface option. Both Hewlett-Packard and selected Epson printers are supported.
