Internal Preamplifier Installation Kit
Introduction
This kit contains all of the instructions required to install any of the internal preamplifier options into
an X-Series signal analyzer.
NOTE
1. At the time of manufacture the hardware related to this option was fully
adjusted and the option performance was verified to be within its warranted
specifications. Within one year of the initial calibration date of the instrument
this option is fully calibrated with no further adjustment or verification
testing.
To determine the initial calibration date, locate the original calibration
certificate that was shipped with the instrument at the time of purchase. The
Date of Calibration is printed on the original calibration certificate.
To ensure that this newly installed option has been installed properly, the
procedure that follows includes a functional check.
No factory test data is available for this option. If you require test data for this
option then a full calibration is required after installation of this option.
Arrangements regarding the level of calibration must be made with the
calibration provider.
2. If this instrument has been adjusted as part of a repair or calibration during
its first year, or if the instrument is more than one year old, additional
adjustments and performance verification tests are required to ensure that
this newly installed option is functioning properly. However, the completion
of these tests does not guarantee that the instrument meets all warranted
specifications.
If the option being installed is N9010A-P07, and the analyzer’s serial number
prefix is less than MY/SG/US5051, additional adjustments and performance
verification tests are required.
If the option being installed is N9010A-P13 or N9010A-P26, and the
analyzer’s serial prefix is less than MY/SG/US5322, additional adjustments
and performance tests are required.
If the option being installed is N9010A-P07, the analyzer’s instrument
software must be A.07.00 or later. Earlier software versions do not recognize
N9010A-P07 as a valid option.
If the option being installed is N9010A-P13 or N9010A-P26, the analyzer’s
instrument software must be A.12.09 or later. Earlier software versions do not
recognize N9010A-P13 or N9010A-P26 as valid options.
3.If the instrument is N9030A with Options 543, 544, or 550 and the preamp
option to be installed is P03, P08, P13, or P26, instrument software must be
A.10.52 or later. If the software is earlier, the preamp softkey will not appear.

downloaded from:
http://www.keysight.com/find/Xseries_software.
5. This option is licensed for one instrument model/serial number
combination. The license key will only install on the designated instrument.
