The new features in version 2 include 'quick menu' mode which provides rapid single-key access to commonly used functions, and measurement in dBuV as an alternative to dBm.
A limit-line editor has been added which enables any number of limit lines to be created and stored. Up to two limit lines can then be displayed simultaneously in different colours. Limit lines can be of considerable assistance to users making repetitive measurements in applications such as EMC testing.
Other changes include detector overload indication, sweep progress indication bar, improved battery indication and revised marker readout.
The ability to easily update and extend the software is aided by the product's incorporation of a Palm T|X handheld computer. This provides extensive additional application capability via its touch-screen based Garnet 5.4 operating system.
All PSA-T series spectrum analysers currently on sale have version 2 software already installed.
