Does the E7495A/B Wireless Base Station Test Set support frequency-panning in Spectrum Analyzer mode?

Frequency-Panning is an Agilent patented technique that is used on Agilent PSA Series, ESA Series, EMC Series and 8590E series spectrum analyzers. Support for this feature in E7495A/B Spectrum Analyzer mode was added in January 2004 with firmware revision A.02.10.

The frequency-panning technique keeps existing measurement data on the instrument's display and reformats it instantly in response to user adjustments of span or center frequency. This prevents visual loss of the signal of interest on screen and reduces operator adjustment time. It is especially useful when display updates are slow due to long acquisition times. Without frequency-panning it can be difficult to adjust center frequency or frequency span to bring the desired signals of interest on screen.
