Redeem an Option Voucher
InstructionsThere are several Aim-TTi products for which optional software functionality can be unlocked with a key file. These key files are sold in the form of a Voucher Code which are available for purchase via dealers. Vouchers are only valid for one type of upgrade option (e.g., "PSA-U01" option for PSA Series) and are exchanged for a key file for a specific instrument serial number. This page enables you to exchange a Voucher Code for a key file.
Getting the key file
Use the form on this page to request a key file for the serial number of the instrument on which you want to unlock functionality.
WARNING: Please make sure the serial number you enter here is valid¹ and correct. Once a voucher code is exchanged for a key file for a particular serial number, that voucher code is used and the process cannot be undone or changed to a different serial number.
The Voucher Code is 16 character alphanumeric in the form XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX. When the Voucher Code has been accepted, you will be given a key file for download. This is a very small binary file with the name "xxxxxxxx.key" where xxxxxxxx is the serial number of the instrument for which it is valid.
Using a key file: PSA Series 2 and 5
For the PSA series, the key file must be copied onto the root folder of a USB Flash Drive (formatted FAT16 or FAT32). Connect the flash drive to the instrument and navigate to "Setup/Functions" → "System/file Ops" → "System Utilities" → "System Update" → "Install Options". The spectrum analyser will read the activation key file and, if valid, unlock the option. It will then perform a system restart and the options will be available. You only need to do this once and the instrument will then be unlocked permanently, including through future firmware updates.
Using a key file: TGF3000 Series
For the TGF3000 Series, the key file must be copied into the "TGF3XX2" folder² of a USB Flash Drive (formatted FAT16 or FAT32). Connect the flash drive to the instrument and wait a few seconds. The instrument detects the presence of the licence file and, if valid, unlocks the option automatically. You only need to do this once and the instrument will then be unlocked permanently, including through future firmware updates.
- Vouchers are only valid for one type of upgrade option (e.g., "PSA-U01" option for PSA Series), but can be exchanged for a key file for any serial number.
- ¹ No checking is done that the serial number you enter is for a product that can use the key file. Please check carefully as it may not be possible to undo it.
- Serial numbers can be found on the instrument label or via the software interface.
- ² The TGF3XX2 folder should be in the root of the USB drive when updating the TGF3000 series. It is usually created automatically by the instrument if you have used the USB drive in it. The "XX" here is literal, not a placeholder.
