I have a 1998 model 8593E where I connected the cables for option 105 as described
in the instalation manual for the option on the motherboard, then I have to go
to an agilent web page to open option 105 but it dont excist any more, what to
I also have an older 8593E (1992) where option 105 is an plug in card where it
In later 8590E instrument the option 105 hardware was built onto the processor board. When it was ordered, the cables would be added and the option would be enabled, while earlier instruments had a board assembly that was installed in the card cage, along with the calbes, which would identify itself and just work.
The option to add the newer style was never available for upgrade outside of Agilent/HP. An instrument getting this upgrade would need to be sent into an Agilent/HP service center for the upgrade. The reason is that it requires the special instructions that are found on the internal Agilent web site mentioned in the installation to enable the option. We never released this information to the public.
