     8600
Spectrum OFA-SPEC OFA_500MS Δt = 0.5 s, freq. = 66 points 2112
  E: 1ch OFA_1S Δt = 1.0 s, freq. = 132 points

The time and frequency resolution changes in conjunction with the OFA-SPEC
Time resolution (Δt) is 1/8 of the OFA-SPEC, while the number of frequency points is the same as the OFA-SPEC.
