The Agilent 35670A at a Glance (Front Panel)
Agilent 35670A Front Panel
1-Use the softkeys to select items from the current menu. A softkey's function is indicated by a video label on the analyzer's screen.
Throughout this book, softkeys are printed like this: [FFT ANALYSIS].
Hardkeys are front-panel buttons whose functions are always the same. They have a label printed directly on the key itself.
Throughout this book, hardkeys are printed like this: [Inst Mode].
2-The analyzer's screen is divided into the menu area and the display area. The menu area displays video labels for the softkeys. The
data area displays measurement data and information about the parameter settings.
3-The [Rtn] key returns the menu to the previous level.
4 -The POWER switch turns on the analyzer.
5 -Use the SYSTEM keys to control various system-level functions. These functions include saving files, plotting measurement data,
and accessing online help.
6 -Use the disk drive to save your work on 3.5 inch flexible disks.
7-The knob moves the markers and the cursor. It also steps through numeric values and scrolls through online help.
8 -Use the DISPLAY keys to control what appears on the analyzer's traces.
They only affect how data is displayed; DISPLAY keys
do not change measurement parameters. You can press keys in the DISPLAY menus without losing measurement parameters.
9 -Use the MARKER keys to select a variety of marker features.
10-Use the MEASUREMENT keys to control the analyzer's source and inputs. They also control measurement parameters. You
must make a new measurement if you change a MEASUREMENT parameter.
11-Use the numeric-entry keys to enter a numeric value.
12-The microphone power connector provides power (8 Vdc) for the Microphone Adapter Kit (Option UK4).
13-The connector area of the front panel has two different configurations.
The standard analyzer has a source output connector and
two input connectors. The 4-channel analyzer (Option AY6) has four input connectors.
Range indicators are located next to each input connector. The upper LED is the over-range indicator (the signal level exceeds the
current range setting). The lower LED is the half range indicator (the signal level exceeds half the current range setting).
14-A source on/off indicator is located at the left edge of the connector area.
The standard Agilent 35670A (2-channel) has a source connector on the front panel.

8-The AC POWER connector accept a wide range of ac voltage levels.
9-The POWER SELECT switch determines whether the analyzer is powered via the AC POWER connector or the DC POWER
10-The EXT MONITOR port links the analyzer to multi-sync monitors.
The following general safety precautions must be observed during all phases of
operation of this instrument. Failure to comply with these precautions or with
specific warnings elsewhere in this manual violates safety standards of design,
manufacture, and intended use of the instrument. Agilent Technologies, Inc.
assumes no liability for the customer's failure to comply with these
This product is a Safety Class 1 instrument (provided with a protective earth
terminal). The protective features of this product may be impaired if it is used in
a manner not specified in the operation instructions.
All Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) used in this product are Class 1 LEDs as per
This instrument is intended for indoor use in an installation category II, pollution
degree 2 environment. It is designed to operate at a maximum relative humidity
of 95% and at altitudes of up to 4600 meters. Refer to the specifications tables
for the ac mains voltage requirements and ambient operating temperature range.
BEFORE APPLYING POWER
Verify that the product is set to match the available line voltage, the correct fuse
is installed, and all safety precautions are taken. Note the instrument's external
markings described under Safety Symbols.
GROUND THE INSTRUMENT
To minimize shock hazard, the instrument chassis and cover must be connected
to an electrical protective earth ground. The instrument must be connected to
the ac power mains through a grounded power cable, with the ground wire
firmly connected to an electrical ground (safety ground) at the power outlet.
Any interruption of the protective (grounding) conductor or disconnection of
the protective earth terminal will cause a potential shock hazard that could
result in personal injury.
Only fuses with the required rated current, voltage, and specified type (normal
blow, time delay, etc.) should be used. Do not use repaired fuses or
short-circuited fuse holders. To do so could cause a shock or fire hazard.
DO NOT OPERATE IN AN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERE
Do not operate the instrument in the presence of flammable gases or fumes.
DO NOT REMOVE THE INSTRUMENT COVER
Operating personnel must not remove instrument covers. Component
replacement and internal adjustments must be made only by qualified service
Instruments that appear damaged or defective should be made inoperative and
secured against unintended operation until they can be repaired by qualified
WARNING The WARNING sign denotes a hazard. It calls attention to a procedure,
practice, or the like, which, if not correctly performed or adhered to,
could result in personal injury. Do not proceed beyond a WARNING
sign until the indicated conditions are fully understood and met.
Caution The CAUTION sign denotes a hazard. It calls attention to an operating
procedure, or the like, which, if not correctly performed or adhered to, could
result in damage to or destruction of part or all of the product. Do not proceed
beyond a CAUTION sign until the indicated conditions are fully understood and

specifications are with 400 line frequency resolution unless stated otherwise.
Four channel instruments are unspecified in the one channel mode where alias
protection filters are not connected.
dBVrms = dB relative to 1 Volt rms.
dBfs = dB relative to full scale amplitude range. Full scale is approximately 2 dB below ADC
FS or fs Full scale; synonymous with input range.
