Rugged handheld analysers
19 September 2012, Test & Measurement

Agilent Technologies has rolled out 14 FieldFox handheld analysers that deliver benchtop-instrument accuracy in field-test environments. Designed for harsh conditions and hard-to-reach locations, they cover satellite communications, microwave backhaul, military communications, radar systems and a host of others.

The instruments can be configured as cable-and-antenna analysers, spectrum analysers, vector network analysers or all-in-one combination analysers. Each compact, 3 kg package is available in four frequencies: 9, 14, 18 or 26,5 GHz.

To ensure durability in harsh field environments, the completely sealed enclosure is compliant with US MIL-PRF-28800F Class 2 requirements. To enhance ease of use, the instrument has a vertical, or ‘portrait,’ orientation and large buttons, allowing users to easily operate it with their thumbs, even while wearing gloves.

FieldFox microwave vector network analysers provide full two-port S-parameter measurements with a low trace noise of ±0,004 dB and dynamic range of 94 dB (up to 18 GHz). The VNAs offer an industry-first QuickCal function, which enables hassle-free calibration without external accessories.

FieldFox microwave spectrum analysers provide amplitude accuracy of ±0,5 dB at power-up, with no warm-up required, allowing field users to instantly and precisely characterise transmitter power. They can detect more signals in the band of interest with phase noise of -111 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset, and measure low-level signals in the presence of high-power transmitters with spur-free dynamic range of 105 dB.

The combination analysers’ base function is cable and antenna analysis, and users can configure the instrument to do spectrum and vector network analysis as well.

To further save space in a field kit, FieldFox analysers can be ordered with a built-in power meter, independent signal generator, vector voltmeter, interference analysis, variable DC source, frequency counter and built-in GPS receiver.

Among the 14 models are two new FieldFox RF combination analysers: the N9913A (4 GHz) and the N9914A (6,5 GHz). These models expand Agilent’s RF lineup, which already includes the highly integrated N9912A RF analyser (4 or 6 GHz) and the highly accurate N9923A RF vector network analyser (also 4 or 6 GHz).
