With more built-in capabilities than similar analyzers, FieldFox can replace three or four single-function instruments – benchtop or handheld – that are typically used for maintenance and troubleshooting of systems that operate at or above Ka-band frequencies.

“At only 7.1 pounds, the new FieldFox models deliver laboratory-grade measurements that enable field personnel to fully characterize today’s most demanding radar and satellite systems,” said Dan Dunn, general manager for RF and microwave handheld analyzers. “In addition, a FieldFox combination analyzer provides unprecedented functionality and value at about half the cost of each equivalent benchtop instrument.”

Three combination-analyzer models cover 32, 44 or 50 GHz and provide spectrum analysis, vector network analysis and cable and antenna testing in a rugged, portable unit. The three spectrum analyzer models cover the same frequency range.

In all six new models, spectrum measurements are up to eight times faster than those made with comparable analyzers. FieldFox millimeter-wave analyzers are also three pounds lighter than similar units from other vendors.

The FieldFox family is optimized for field testing. The fully sealed enclosure – no fans or vents – is compliant with US MIL-PRF-28800F Class 2 standards and is also type tested to meet MIL-STD-810G requirements for operation in explosive environments (Method 511.5, Procedure 1). FieldFox analyzers are also type tested to meet IEC/EN 60529 IP53 requirements for protection from dust and water.

The analyzers offer a broad array of functionality that is software upgradeable, enabling users to choose the capabilities they need initially and add others later. Examples include vector voltmeter, TDR cable measurements, built-in power meter, pulse measurements, spectrum analyzer time gating, interference analyzer (with spectrogram), and GPS receiver.
