E5052B Signal Source Analyzer Frequency Counter Resolution

Question asked by steveor on Jun 10, 2013
Hi,

From the datasheet at:
http://cp.literature.agilent.com/litweb/pdf/5989-6388EN.pdf
it seems the frequency resolution of the E5052B is one of three settings:  10Hz, 1kHz, or 64kHz.

My program sets the resolution with the SCPI command:
:SENSE:FP1:FREQ:RESOLUTION NARROW  (my choices are NARROW, MIDDLE or WIDE)

But this gives me a resolution of 1 KHz, not the expected 10 Hz.  Also the programming guide says the Frequency Resolution is 1KHz or 64KHz.

What gives?  How do I put the instrument in 10 Hz resolution mode?  Is there actually a 10 Hz mode?

Thanks,
Steve Ortiz
