You can create your HMS spectrum analyzer by combining a basic unit with any of three available options. In case of growing requirements, upgrade vouchers allow you to upgrade your instruments with all options at any point in time.

HMSX Options Option Code Option Description
EMC option incl. preamplifier HMS-EMC This option activates all the functions that are
required for EMC precompliance measurements.
The preamplifier option has been integrated into the
new HMS-EMC option.
Bandwidth upgrade to 3 GHz HMS-3G The frequency range is increased from
1.6 GHz to 3 GHz with this option.
Unlock built-in tracking generator HMS-TG This option activates the tracking generator
in the instrument.
