Agilent Introduces 14 FieldFox Handheld Analyzers

By DE Editors

Agilent Technologies has released 14 FieldFox handheld analyzers that deliver benchtop-instrument accuracy in field-test environments, the company says. Designed for harsh conditions and hard-to-reach locations, FieldFox analyzers cover satellite communications, microwave backhaul, military communications, radar systems and a wide range of additional applications.

The microwave analyzers can be configured as cable-and-antenna analyzers, spectrum analyzers, vector network analyzers, or all-in-one combination analyzers. Each 6.6-lb. (3.0-kg) package is available in four frequencies: 9, 14, 18 or 26.5GHz.

To ensure durability in harsh field environments, the completely sealed enclosure is compliant with U.S. MIL-PRF-28800F Class 2 requirements. The instrument has a vertical, or “portrait,” orientation and large buttons, allowing users to operate the unit with their thumbs, even while wearing gloves.

FieldFox microwave vector network analyzers 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 a QuickCal function, which enables calibration without external accessories.

The analyzers provide amplitude accuracy of ±0.5 dB at power-up, with no warm-up required, allowing field users to instantly and precisely characterize transmitter power, Agilent says. 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.

Among the 14 models are two new FieldFox RF combination analyzers: the N9913A (4 GHz) and the N9914A (6.5 GHz).
